November 21 – 23, 2013  ·  Zellerbach Theatre

Packed with wit, theatrical sensibility and a penchant for pop culture, Larry Keigwin’s choreography is “a parcel of pure explosive energy mediated by impressive technical skills” (New York Times). Celebrating a decade of dance-making in 2013, Keigwin is a rare gem—his works deftly walk the edge between high-brow and commercial. With wildly kinetic pieces regularly leaving audiences in fits of glee, Keigwin is the choreographer to watch. His Philadelphia program will include Love Songs (2006), a series of playful duets that explore the various stages of love, set to music by Roy Orbison, Aretha Franklin and Nina Simone, and the tongue-in-cheek piece Girls (2013), set to a Frank Sinatra medley. Triptych (2009) and Mattress Suite (2003) will also be performed.
