Featuring World Premieres set to the music of Arvo Pärt, René Aubry, Ólafur Arnalds, and Philip Glass, as well as SJDC Repertory Classics with music from Alarm Will Sound and Leonard Bernstein, *Fire* is a contemporary dance celebration and homecoming, where past SJDC Dance apprentices come back home to dance as they are now - young, beautiful, black dance artists.
The Savage Jazz Dance Company continues the fire of Archie Savage (who would have celebrated his 100th birthday this year), the artistry of Katherine Dunham, and the vision of Artistic Director, Reginald Ray-Savage.
