Summer at SAM: Sculptured Dance

Recommended Posts

At yesterday afternoon's post-performance Q&A, Ezra Thomson told us that he'd be one of five choreographers who would be creating works on PNB, Whim W'him, and Spectrum Dance Theatre dancers to be performed during Summer at SAM: Sculptured Dance on Thursday, August 11, from 6-8pm at the Olympic Sculpture Park:


He noted that Donald Byrd and Olivier Wevers would be working with PNB dancers, and that he'd be working with Spectrum dancers. I'm sorry I didn't take notes and can't remember the other two choreographers.
