Zenon Dance Company at ACA on Friday, March 9
Zenon Dance Company, the professional modern and jazz dance repertory company renowned for its artistic virtuosity, emotional intelligence and inspired excellence, tops off a four-day dance residency with an evening performance of modern and jazz dance at the Arrowhead Center for the Arts at 7 p.m. Friday, March 9.
Zenon’s residency work (March 5-8) will include daily creative movement classes with 4-7th graders, and 8th grade - adults. “Zenon Dance Company is delighted to return to Grand Marais after many years,” said Linda Z. Andrews, founder and artistic director of Zenon Dance Company. “We are looking forward to performing an exciting mix of groundbreaking American modern and jazz dance works for the community as well as teaching local dance students.”
Zenon Dance Company will perform four vibrant works from its recent repertory: “Storm,” a sweeping musical work of heroic physicality, intricate composition and emotional resonance; “Booba,” a lively, hip and humorous modern work pushing the dancers to their physical limits, exploring the explosive power and contained tension in relationships; “My Very Empty Mouth,” an intensely spiritual and physical female duet; and “Pink Martini,” a high-octane jazz/ballroom/modern work.
This event is sponsored by the Grand Marais Playhouse, North Shore Music Association, and Cook County Education.
