Boston Conservatory at Berklee to Present Spring Dance Concert Limitless
Boston Conservatory at Berklee will present a Center Stage production of its spring dance concert, Limitless, an innovative program featuring a selection of the world's leading choreographers, from Thursday, April 21 through Sunday, April 24 at the Boston Conservatory Theater. All performances will take place in-person, with livestream options for the performances on Saturday, April 23 at 8:00 p.m. and Sunday, April 24 at 2:00 p.m.
The program will feature four masterwork reconstructions: Enter Woven, choreographed and restaged by Victor Quijada; Four Brubeck Pieces, choreographed by Murray Louis and restaged by Alberto del Saz; Shelter, choreographed by Jawole Willa Jo Zollar and restaged by Maria Bauman; and La Vivandière (aka Markitenka), choreographed by Arthur Saint-Léon and restaged by Ariana Suarez and Gianni DiMarco.
Jennifer Archibald, founder and artistic director of the Arch Dance Company, has choreographed a world premiere for Limitless, as part of Boston Conservatory’s new KCon Performance Reparatory Course supported by the CJ Cultural Foundation. The piece will feature an eclectic mix of K-pop and contemporary dance, and will also be performed later this summer in Los Angeles at the 2022 KCon convention, the world's largest fan celebration of Korean culture and music.
“This world premiere, under the choreography of the brilliant and tremendously gifted Jennifer Archibald, is a step in a new and exciting direction for our Boston Conservatory at Berklee dance students,” said Ruka Hatua-Saar White, assistant professor of dance and faculty reconstructor. “This piece is unlike anything the Conservatory has done before—it’s daring, bold, and raw, synthesizing many attributes contained within the training here at the Conservatory.”
“This year’s spring dance concert will feature masterworks of unparalleled levels by world- renowned choreographers for the Boston Conservatory at Berklee dance majors,” said Tommy Neblett, dean of dance for Boston Conservatory at Berklee. “I am so proud of the incredible work that will be presented at this performance, and am certain it will leave a lasting impression on all audiences.”
This Center Stage performance will take place at the Boston Conservatory Theater, located at 31 Hemenway Street in Boston, Massachusetts, at 8:00 p.m. from Thursday, April 21 through Saturday, April 23, and at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 23 and Sunday, April 24.
