Koresh Dance Company was founded in 1991 by Israeli-born choreographer and artistic director Ronen (Roni) Koresh. The Philadelphia based company is known for its engaging performances and superb dancers. This performance will feature a mix of contemporary dance works choreographed by Roni Koresh, sure to provide an afternoon of movement that awakens, excites, awes and inspires. The program kicks off with Deconstructing Mozart, a collaboration driven by Artistic Director Roni Koresh and multi-media artist Paul D. Miller, a.k.a. DJ Spooky and Steven Levitin aka Apple-Juice Kid. This masterpiece which dares to deconstruct Mozart's 23rd piano concerto, will share the stage with Koresh's acclaimed Bolero, fun moments from The Heart, and a glimpse at Koresh's latest NEA funded work Matters of the Heart. Moments of tenderness and grace alternate with humor and brash force on this program of highlights. The program takes a musical and emotional journey as classical favorites are interwoven with world and industrial music, bringing audiences a dynamic program that will bring them to their feet. Don't miss your chance to see Philly's best contemporary dance company, with energetic Israeli inspired flair!
