Dance Theatre of Harlem

with the Naples Philharmonic
Artis—Naples Dance Series

Radu Paponiu, conductor

Pärt/Dove — Dancing on the Front Porch of Heaven
Bach/Limón — Chaconne

Bach/Garland — New Bach
Various/Moultrie — Harlem on My Mind

The Dance Theatre of Harlem performs two powerful works alongside the Naples Philharmonic with Radu Paponiu, conductor. First is a piece titled New Bach, a supreme expression of post-modern-urban neoclassicism and a tribute to George Balanchine’s neoclassical ballet. Then, the company will present Dancing on the Front Porch of Heaven, choreographed by Ulysses Dove for the Royal Swedish Ballet in 1993. Dove’s spare but demanding choreography invites dancer and viewer alike to live in each moment as if it were their last.

Arrive early to enjoy the Hayes Hall Galleries and light fare at the cafe. The doors to Hayes Hall open 60 minutes prior to this performance.
