World premiere Kennedy Center co-commission
A majestic ride awaits a young stargazer who is carried away by the magician Uranus. Join her and fellow voyagers in a journey through the Solar System for the young and young at heart. The Kennedy Center, D.C. dance ensemble Company | E, and composer Eric Shimelonis share an interplanetary display of modern movement set to Gustav Holst’s The Planets.
Through a reimagining of Holst’s soaring suite, Company | E combines live music, dance, and a bit of Einstein to celebrate curiosity, compassion, and the natural world. Experience the distinct character of each planet, from the majestic and jolly Jupiter, to the angry and ominous Mars, to the lively and flighty Mercury.
