Since its first appearance at NOCCA in 2013, Jessica Lang Dance has skyrocketed into a major American dance force led by the remarkably gifted Jessica Lang. Hailed by Dance Magazine as a “master of visual composition,” Lang’s technically stunning dancers are back on the main stage with spellbinding, artfully crafted works. The evening includes her riveting and poignant Thousand Yard Stare, honoring veterans and those touched by the aftermath of war, and Tesseracts of Time, her collaboration with famed architect Steven Holl with striking architectural elements and otherworldly projection.
“Lang continues to push boundaries in dance crafting subtle art that verges on ‘masterpiece.’” The Huffington Post
