Dance Theatre of Harlem - January 28

The 18-member, multi-ethnic company performs a forward-thinking repertoire that includes treasured classics, neoclassical works, and innovative contemporary works that use the language of ballet to celebrate African American culture.

This program includes the Northrop Centennial Commission, Higher Ground, with choreography by Robert Garland and music by Stevie Wonder, and Balamouk choreographed by Annabelle Lopez Ochoa with music by Les Yeux Noirs.

Passage, choreographed by Claudia Schreier with a commissioned score by Jessie Montgomery, offers a moving reflection on the fortitude of the human spirit, created in recognition of the 400th anniversary of the arrival of enslaved Africans to Virginia in 1619.
