Koresh Dance Company Celebrates 25 Years
Artistic Director Ronen Koresh founded the Koresh Dance Company in 1991 with his brothers Alon and Nir Koresh. For its 2016 spring season, the company celebrates 25 years with a world premiere- "23: Deconstructing Mozart," a new collaboration with multimedia artist, author and composer Paul D. Miller (a.k.a. DJ Spooky), co-produced by Stephen Levitin (a.k.a. Apple Juice Kid). An exploration of solitude and community set against the formal act of counting and numbering, the new work interrupts, disarticulates, and reconstructs Mozart’s classical Piano Concerto no. 23 with the beats, breaks, stops and starts of the present. March 10-12,
Suzanne Roberts Theatre, 480 South Broad Street, 215.751.0959, KoreshDance.org
