New York City's Mecca for dance, The Joyce Theater, will once again host the dynamic Philadelphia Dance Company (PHILADANCO) from as it begins its 2004-2005 touring season with the new and exciting program We Too Dance…African American Men in Dance with premieres for the men of PHILADANCO, and favored repertory works for the entire company.
The week-long program will consist of three works for men by men: The line up includes Eleo Pomare's 1983 work, "Back to Bach" (reconstructed 2003), which he describes as a "luminous celebration of dance and the music of J. S. Bach". The second ballet for the men of PHILADANCO is a new work "Blue" by the young choreographer Christopher Huggins, and will feature former company member Zane Booker. The third is a solo "Sweet in the Morning," remounted from a Labonation score, and choreographed by the late Leni Wylliams, an accomplished dancer and choreographer who founded the Kansas City based Wylliams/Henry Dance Theatre in 1991.
