Peridance Contemporary Dance Company is thrilled to have returned to the stage for the 2011-2012 season!
The Company re-emerged from hiatus with the Washington, D.C. debut of Manuel de Falla's El Amor Brujo, choreographed by Artistic Director and Founder Igal Perry, in collaboration with PostClassical Ensemble. The Company presented Perry's The Nutcracker: a Contemporary Look to sold-out audiences, and filled the ensuing months with guest appearances and benefits to support charitable organizations and the deserving communities they serve. The season culminated in May, with three World Premieres by Igal Perry and guest choreographers Sidra Bell and Kristin Sudeikis, live orchestra and string quartet with Juilliard musicians, Flamenco singer Marija Temo, PostClassical Ensemble's Joe Horowitz and Angel Gil-Ordonez, Flamenco scholar Brook Zern and Spanish novelist Antonio Munoz-Molina, and guest star Jose Manuel Carreno gracing the stage.
