Performing in Victoria as part of their first Canadian tour! Called a ‘master of visual composition’ by Dance Magazine, Jessica Lang is Choreographer and Artistic Director of the Jessica Lang Dance company, a troupe of 10 dancers that approach her choreography with surgical precision, dancing with artful physical intellect and meticulous technical adeptness.
“Lang’s work is like a stylish appetizer at a fine dining restaurant… she leaves her viewers with a pearl — a beautiful taste in the mouth… In a seemingly simple, relatively short evening, there was so much to see and absorb.” Lauren Warnecke, Art Intercepts
