Quotes & Highlights
Garth Fagan won a Tony Award for choreographing The Lion King on Broadway.
“Watching Fagan’s work, you think, What fabulous dancers! You marvel at their control in off-kilter balances, their softness in space-devouring leaps, their cool in whirling at top speed, their gift for making stillness contemplative.” —Village Voice
“The whole troupe looks in remarkably fine fettle. It’s a dance must-see.” —Clive Barnes, New York Post
Long before he won a Tony Award for choreographing The Lion King, Jamaica native Garth Fagan was raising pulses as one of the dance world’s most exquisite, startling and distinctive voices. Now, “one of modern dance’s most innovative choreographers” (New York Times) brings his fearless troupe to L.A. for an explosive program fusing Afro-Caribbean energy, balletic precision and rule-bending modern dance. It’s all here in a mixed program featuring Fagan’s latest hit, DANCECOLLAGEFORROMIE, among other recent and classic favorites, including Translation Transition with music by the Jazz Jamaica All Stars, and Woza to the soaring music of Lebo M.
