Following a successful opening week of Festival 2013, Dance Theatre of Harlem returns with an all-new program, led by Artistic Director and founding company member Virginia Johnson. The company performs past-carry-forward, created for DTH by Tanya Wideman and Thaddeus Davis, which brings the design, significance, and spirit of the Harlem Renaissance to life. Donald Byrd's contemporary ballet Contested Space is a total knockout, featuring lithe solos and duets packed with smooth shape shifting and flexibility. The centerpiece of this dynamic program is Ulysses Dove's breathtaking ballet Dancing on the Front Porch of Heaven, danced to "Cantus in Memory of Benjamin Britten" by Arvo Pärt.
