I AM LARGE

You’ll be fascinated by the world premiere of Joshua L. Peugh‘s I AM LARGE, a collage of music and dance styles. The work embodies the DBDT dancers’ feelings about the company, which they view as a powerful family grounded in excellence.

The movement vocabulary evolved as Peugh continued dialogue with the dancers about their impressions. “Some of the words used to describe Dallas Black Dance Theatre were hidden, powerful, discipline, Black, excellence, and family,” said Peugh. “We then took those lists and used them to generate movement.”
