From CityBeat, read an article by Julie Mullins written about Homecoming at the time of its premiere in 2011. CLICK HERE

Celebrate the 10th anniversary of the dance company that CityBeat named 'The Best Dance Company Pushing the Envelope' (2012) and says 'will both impress you with technique and provoke you with thoughtful choreography.'

MamLuft&Co. Dance closes its 10th anniversary season with a captivating concert filled with some of the best of ML&Co.’s repertory.

The May 5-6 show, entitled Homecoming, features new versions of the audience favorites Homecoming (2011) and Double|Sided (2016), plus a surprise piece that has been chosen by audience vote!

This exciting evening will feature moving walls, dancing with lights, and — as always — bold athleticism.


Performance Line-Up

Homecoming (2011)  |  Originally choreographed by Jeanne Mam-Luft in collaboration with the original performers of MamLuft&Co. Dance; Re-envisioned by Susan Honer and Elena Rodriguez Moore

Inspired by the true story of a pilgrimage from one foreign land to another, Homecoming follows a traveller in search of the journey’s end. Entrancing visuals and intricate choreography result from dancing with lanterns, stools, and synchronized lighting.

Double|Sided (2016)  |  Originally choreographed by Elena Rodriguez Moore and Steven Evans in collaboration with the original performers of MamLuft&Co. Dance; Adaptation by Elena Rodriguez Moore

Performers dance with a moving wall in this powerful work about both building and bringing down literal and figurative barriers. Exploring division and conflict, Double|Sided uses daring choreography and finds that, in the end, unity triumphs.

Surprise Work To Be Announced  |  Chosen by audience vote at 5 of 10 concert in November

Audiences voted for a favorite work at a previous concert in November. The “audience pick” will be announced through social media (Facebook and Instagram) leading up to this concert!
