Posted in Performances '11, 2011, Interviews '11, School '11.


An evening that showcases both new and classic modern dance works, the PAST/FORWARD program will include pieces by three diverse artists utilizing the immense talents of the ADF students. Rika Okamota and Alex Brady set the reconstruction of Twyla Tharp’s Sweet Fields from 1996. Noted as one of her highest achievements, this playful yet poignantly spiritual work was inspired by Tharp’s Quaker upbringing.
