Cleo Parker Robinson Dance Ensemble | July 29—August 2
Founded by master teacher, choreographer, and cultural ambassador Cleo Parker Robinson in 1970, this Denver-based distinguished modern dance company is renowned for a dynamic body of work inspired by the African American experience and rooted in ethnic and modern dance traditions worldwide.
Cleo Parker Robinson Dance returns to the Pillow for the first time in over two decades in celebration of their 50th anniversary. Their program features masterworks that draw from a richly diverse and historic repertoire. They also perform newcomer Micaela Taylor’s Resist, a cutting-edge work set to a score that spans ’70s funk to Max Richter’s haunting minimalist tones. Taylor, who has been praised for her keen satirical perspective was named one of Dance Magazine’s “25 to Watch” in 2019.
Parker Robinson has received a Kennedy Center Medal of Honor, the King M. Trimble Community Award, and the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Humanitarian Award.
Additional programming to be announced.
