Philandanco perform at the Bandshell as part of Celebrate Brooklyn!, presented by BRIC in partnership with the Prospect Park Alliance. For the latest information, including weather updates, set times, seating configurations, and FAQs, please visit the BRIC website.
The trailblazing choreographer Joan Myers Brown, who founded her extraordinary company Philandanco in 1970, has been engaged in shattering barriers for African Americans in contemporary dance nearly her whole life. This program will feature work by Thang Dao, Ronald K. Brown, and Abdel Salaam that originally premiered in James Brown: Get on the Good Foot, a Celebration in Dance, along with a piece by Christopher Huggins and a New York premiere.
Gates open an hour before the performance unless otherwise noted, and all performances are rain or shine.
