Jessica Lang: Choreographer
All Library locations will close at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, December 24 and remain closed on Thursday, December 25 in observance of the Christmas holiday.
Critically acclaimed and award-winning choreographer Jessica Lang presents the first of three programs brought to the Library by the Kansas City Ballet. The series features luminaries in the field of dance and is being held in conjunction with the company's 2009-2010 season.
Lang will stage a production of her Splendid Isolation III for the Kansas City Ballet's fall performance at the Lyric Theatre, October 15-18. The dance is new and includes music by Gustav Mahler.
Known for her inventive vision, deep artistry, and emotionally spellbinding choreography, Lang's dances have been performed throughout the United States and abroad, including in Japan, Germany, France, Mexico, and South Africa. She is a graduate of the Julliard School. She was a member of Twyla Tharp's company “THARP!” where she performed in major dance festivals around the world.
