The Bill Evans Dance Company gave its first performances at the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C. in the summer of 1974. Since then, the company has appeared in all 50 U.S. states, throughout Canada and Mexico and in 20 other countries.
This celebratory program will demonstrate the company's extraordinary versatility. It will include Rochester premieres of Claire Porter’s See You Around and William Evans’ Multiple Margaret and Portrait of a Lady, plus revivals of Evans’ For Jamie, Impressions of Willow Bay and Dos Tangos. Featured work will be the world premiere of Evans' newest piece, performed by guest artists, FuturPointe Dance Company.
"This amazing dancer-choreographer seems to have more disguises than Sherlock Holmes, all wondrously credible and diverting... there is no question about the abundance of his talent."
- Alan Kriegsman, Pulitzer Prize-winning critic, Washington Post.
