First Friday! Bodies in Bloom: The Art of American Dance

On First Friday! at the Barnes, Philadelphia’s Koresh Dance Company performs My America, offering audiences bold theatricality, hard-hitting marches, eloquent duets, and a thoroughly captivating mix of worlds and styles. Lose yourself in the constant flow of motion that Koresh draws from the traditions of Luigi jazz and Martha Graham, tap your feet to percussive folk rhythms, and absorb yourself in Koresh Dance Company’s trademark passion and precision. Then, celebrate spring with a short talk on Renoir’s flowers.
