Dance Theatre of Harlem and Leyla McCalla

The return of DANCE THEATRE OF HARLEM to the world stage after a nine-year hiatus is cause for celebration. The groundbreaking company is here with a program that includes Donald Byrd’s Contested Space (2012), Robert Garland’s Return (1999), and a sleek and evocative restaging of Frederic Franklin’s 1984 masterpiece of classical rigor, Pas de Dix by Keith Saunders, Kellye Saunders, and Virginia Johnson. The New Orleans-based cellist and singer LEYLA MCCALLA, whose recent albumVari-Colored Songs pays tribute to the poetry of Langston Hughes, plays an opening set.
