About this show

Elisa Monte Dance celebrates its 30th anniversary by taking bold steps towards the future with the world premiere of Monte's Dialogue with Vanishing Languages. The program also includes EMD works from each landmark decade that carry with them the depth and richness of American contemporary dance. Since electrifying the dance world in 1981 when Alvin Ailey brought her seminal work, Treading into his repertory, Ms. Monte has been revered for her choreography of elaborate lifts and athletic leaps interwoven with complex patterns and knotty groupings of bodies. The season is dedicated to long-time EMD board member and friend, Denise Jefferson, whose life and years of service to the company will be remembered for the next thirty years and beyond.
