Philadanco celebrates its 40th Anniversary Jubilee at the Kimmel Center ‘s Perelman Theater from Thursday, April 15, 2010 through Sunday, April 18, 2010. Philadanco’s jubilee season concludes with the company premiere of Jawole Willa Jo Zollar’s “By Way of the Funk,” a historical reflection set to the music of the Funkadelics, which was co-commissioned for Philadanco by the Kimmel Center and the August Wilson Center in Pittsburgh.

Philadanco’s 40th anniversary season comes full circle with continuous performances throughout the United States and a European tour scheduled this Fall 2010, with dates in Germany and the Netherlands. The dance troupe recently performed classic Philadanco repertoire in Monterrey, Mexico, including the Philadelphia Experiment, which built the modern dance company’s reputation as an innovative artistic force.

 

On Friday, April 16, 2010, Philadanco hosts the 40th Anniversary Gala at the Kimmel Center with a reception in First Tier Lounge from 5:30 PM to 7 PM; and a dessert and champagne reception in the Hamilton Rooftop Garden from 9:30 PM to 11:30 PM, following the 7:30 PM performance in Perelman Theater. For more information about the gala, please contact Designer Events Inc. at 610-827-7497.

 

“Philadanco’s dancers are a miracle of skill and energy. They work in a range of idioms most companies don’t even try to possess… A company that can do more than just anything… It can represent the possibilities of the human spirit through dance.” —Dance Magazine
