“As we explore the path of Uncharted Territory, there is a surge of anticipation and enthusiasm to expect the unexpected. I am so thrilled to announce the 2017–2018 season. These programs will be filled with generations of dynamic choreographers and guest artists. Each have created choreographic works that are thought-provoking, powerful, enticing, invigorating and engaging. Audiences will be taken on a journey that extends beyond what is familiar.”
