Garth Fagan Dance perform at the Bandshell as part of BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival, presented 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.
Celebrating its 45th season, Garth Fagan Dance has changed the landscape of movement with its innovative blend of modern dance, ballet and Afro-Caribbean dance. Fagan was born in Jamaica and educated in Detroit – he "fuses technical virtuosity with conceptual depth" (LA Times) by imbuing his work with the characters, issues, and cultural climate of his surroundings. Over half a century he has developed his own vocabulary, known as Fagan technique, which marries the sense of weight in modern dance, torso-centered movement and energy of Afro-Caribbean, the speed and precision of ballet, and the rule breaking experimentation of the postmoderns.
Gates open an hour before the performance unless otherwise noted, and all performances are rain or shine.
