Come Together takes the audience on a musical journey with composers from Israel and Turkey set alongside Chopin, Beethoven, Ravel and more. The compelling work juxtaposes Middle Eastern music with classical favorites, sharing with the audience both the grounded, driving, earthy rhythms of the old world with the ethereal, heavenly, sounds of the new.
Audiences will enjoy the sweeping circle patterns and gestures drawn from Israeli folk dance, as well as the stunning athleticism displayed by the Koresh dancers as they seamlessly shift between classical, folk, and pedestrian movements.
Koresh Dance Company was founded in Philadelphia in 1991, and is widely recognized for its superb technique and emotionally-compelling appeal.
Residency activities and performances are funded in part by a grant from South Arts in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts.For more information, visit southarts.org.
