Rochester-based choreographer Garth Fagan has earned international recognition for his work. In fact, in 2012 he was named one of "America's Irreplaceable Dance Treasures" and his work was recognized as having significantly enriched American cultural influence. Despite all of these accolades, the Garth Fagan Dance troupe hasn't forgotten its home city of Rochester, and returns this week to open its season at Nazareth College Arts Center (4245 East Ave).
The program will feature a combination of the old and the new, with revivals of pieces "Easter Freeway Processional" and "Senku" along with new pieces, including "No Evidence of Failure" choreographed by Fagan himself, and "Gin," a creation by principal dancer Norwood Pennewell.
Performances will run through Sunday, December 8, with performances every night at 8 p.m. (Sunday at 7:30 p.m.) and additional 2 p.m. matinees on Saturday and Sunday. Tickets range between $36 and $55. For more information visit garthfagandance.org, artscenter.naz.edu or call Nazareth College Arts Center at 389-2525.
