After a successful 10th year of presenting dance in Los Angeles, contemporary ballet company Kenneth Walker Dance Project announces a summer performance of new works and familiar audience favorites. KWDP, known for its eclectic repertoire, wit, and charm, is an audience and critic and favorite in the burgeoning Los Angeles dance scene.
August 16 will be an evening of dance that includes the company premiere of Rito Transcendente and the world premiere of The Folly of Staring at the Sea. KWDP will also showcase several audience favorites including Hum with commissioned music by composer and former KWDP dancer, Candice Davis. Additional works presented will include A li’l Mozart, Kenneth Walker’s sly wink at 50s’ homemaking. Audiences will also be treated to guest company JESSICA KONDRATH | THE MOVEMENT.
Comments KWDP Artistic Director, Kenneth Walker “Every year is a building upon the year before. We are taking more chances, growing the diversity and technique of our artists, and learning how to successfully present ourselves in Southern California. Our new dances showcase the cultural diaspora of Los Angeles highlighting cultures of Mexico and Ireland.”
