K+C Celebrates Bernstein


Special Projects

Throughout 2018, KEIGWIN + COMPANY joined the worldwide celebration of Leonard Bernstein’s Centennial with an exuberant new evening of dance set entirely to the music of this legendary composer. The program featured two world premieres set to Bernstein’s early works, Piano Trio and Sonata For Clarinet and Piano. Full of melodic flourishes and surprises, the dancers of K+C reflected the youthful enthusiasm of Bernstein’s rarely heard compositions. K+C audience favorites, Episodes and Waterfront, which premiered in 2014 at the Kennedy Center rounded out the program.

 

K+C Celebrates Bernstein toured to 10 cities across the country pairing Bernstein’s iconic music with Larry Keigwin’s electric choreography in a celebratory evening of dance.

It was lovely. Delicious. Happy.
