Wortham Center -- Society for the Performing Arts -- Since the company’s inception, Jessica Lang Dance has thrilled audiences with repertoire ranging from minimal and simplistic to rich and dense with stunning visuals including remarkable sets and costumes. Working on and off pointe, JLD produces and performs dance works associated with music, opera, mixed media compositions and public art installations, while delivering an organic blend of classical and contemporary styles. Driven by Lang’s interest in creative and artistic partnerships and inter-arts exploration, her company has collaborated with visual artist Shinichi Maruyama, composer Jakub Ciupinski and Vancouver-based design firm, molo, dedicated to the research of materials and the exploration of space making. Lang was recently nominated for a Manchester Theatre Award in the dance category for her work Lyric Pieces, performed and commissioned by Birmingham Royal Ballet. While in Houston, Jessica Lang Dance will perform Lines Cubed, Among the Stars and The Calling. Tickets at 713.227.4SPA or www.spahouston.org.
