Jes­sica Lang Dance to Pro­vide Grace­ful Fi­nale to KCP Presents Per­form­ing Arts Sea­son

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - St. Johns­bury, VT

New York City’s Jes­sica Lang Dance stages the fi­nal show in the 2015-2016 KCP Presents Per­form­ing Arts Se­ries. The per­for­mance is sched­uled for Satur­day, April 2 at Lyn­don In­sti­tute’s Alumni Au­di­to­rium. Thanks to grant sup­port from the Na­tional En­dow­ment for the Arts and the Ver­mont Com­mu­nity Foun­da­tion, stu­dents 18 and un­der get in free. Show time is 7:30 pm.

One of to­day’s most up-and-com­ing con­tem­po­rary bal­let chore­og­ra­phers, New York-based Jes­sica Lang is known for cre­at­ing vis­ual feasts packed with dy­namic mul­ti­me­dia and emo­tional con­nec­tiv­ity. En­rich­ing and in­spir­ing global au­di­ences by im­mers­ing them in the beauty of move­ment and mu­sic, Lang’s dance com­pany has en­joyed rapid suc­cess per­form­ing at the na­tion’s most pres­ti­gious venues in­clud­ing the Brook­lyn Academy of Mu­sic, Ja­cob’s Pil­low, New York City Cen­ter, and the John F. Kennedy Cen­ter for the Per­form­ing Arts.

In her Fe­bru­ary 24, 2016 re­view, Laura Bleiberg of the Los An­ge­les Times refers to Lang’s work as “a more se­ri­ous and in­tel­lec­tual cousin of the hal­lu­ci­na­tory dance com­pany MOMIX.” Sarah Kauf­man of The Wash­ing­ton Post says Lang has “a gift for con­vey­ing emo­tion with ex­quis­ite sim­plic­ity”.
