A New Crop Of World Premieres, Locally Made

The daffodils and tulips are poking through the frozen ground — spring is approaching, and with it a new crop of Kanopy Dance Lab Works, created by members of the company and our collaborators. Like a trip to the farmer’s market early in the season, you’ll be delighted with each bud, each tender bloom, each sign that a fruitful harvest is on its way. It’s the place for the freshest movements, expressions, and inspiration in modern dance—locally grown!

Innovation, expressions, and inspiration in modern dance: New works created as part of the Kanopy Dance Lab Works, an ongoing initiative by Company members and guest artists committed to advancing the art of modern dance.
Join Kanopy Dance for our 2018-2019 performances, which all feature celebrations — some tied to holidays and seasons, some simply expressing joy. And isn’t that what great dance is about? Translating emotions into movement that is more meaningful than words. Dance is naturally part of the rituals that mark the passage of time on the calendar — and the festivals that commemorate beginnings and endings, important milestones, change and growth. So celebrate with Kanopy throughout the year, as we create revels of all kinds onstage at Overture Center for the Arts.
