PHILADANCO! The Philadelphia Dance Company
The Philadelphia-based dance company returns to UMass Amherst in celebration of its 50 years as one of the premiere African-American dance companies, presenting iconic Philadanco works as well as new choreography that highlights their continued engagement with today's most important social issues. Among the new work is 2018's Endangered Species, a heart-wrenching piece that takes on police violence towards African-American males. Pre-performance talk in the lobby at 6:30 p.m.
