|Connect with Garth Fagan Dance
Led by the Tony Award-winning choreographer of Disney’s The Lion King, Garth Fagan Dance is celebrated for its excellence and originality. The company’s dancers communicate with unbridled energy the depth, precision and grace of Fagan’s vision, which draws on many sources, from the energy of Afro-Caribbean rhythms to the speed and precision of ballet and the rule-breaking experimentation of postmodernism. The company will perform a selection of works spanning more than 30 years, including Prelude: Discipline is Freedom (1981, revised 1983), excerpts from Fagan’s masterpiece Griot New York (1991) and the Arizona premiere of Lighthouse/Lightning Rod (2012), a new dance featuring choreography by Fagan, music by Grammy Award-winning trumpeter Wynton Marsalis and a set designed by acclaimed artist Alison Saar.
