BMDC 25th Opener Live from the Kennedy Center ( Free – Virtual)

May 26 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Bowen McCauley Dance Company kicks-off its Silver Anniversary season with it’s rescheduled March 2020 performances at the Kennedy Center with the reprise of “​Dances of the Yogurt Maker​,” Choreography by Lucy Bowen McCauley with music by Turkish Composer Erberk Eryilmaz. The first-ever collaboration between these two award-winning artists was commissioned by the Fairfax Symphony Orchestra (March 2019).

Lucy Bowen McCauley will also ​premiere a new work, “Trois R​êves”​ c​reated for the COVID socially distanced stage performance, set to Maurice Ravel’s ​Gaspard de la Nuit​, featuring a live piano solo by Nikola Paskalov. The new piece is set on eight Company dancers and highlights the graceful sweeping movements that only a Ravel composition could deliver.

The evening will begin with a pre-show discussion with Lucy Bowen McCauley and artists sharing their insights and thoughts on the evening’s performance. The virtual performance will follow at 7:30 p.m.

This performance is free. We thank our March 2020 performance sponsors.
