“A fascinating aspect of Lang's work is that...each work feels unique. Between the visually rich dancing and the often striking use of lighting and/or unusual props, we seem to enter new realms with each dance.”
-Boston Globe

“Choreographer Jessica Lang knows that less can be more. She has a knack for making a few minutes of dance evoke a whole world, and for parlaying twenty minutes into an entire cosmos...a dazzling talent.”
-Seattle Times

Hailed as “a master of visual composition” by Dance Magazine, Jessica Lang seamlessly incorporates striking design elements and transforms classical ballet language into artfully crafted, emotionally engaging works that feature gifted, graceful, and athletic performers. The company has been presented at premier venues and festivals worldwide including Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival, BAM’s Next Wave Festival, the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, the Harris Theater for Music and Dance, the Joyce Theater, the White Light Festival at Lincoln Center, Tel Aviv Performing Arts Center, Bolshoi’s Inversion Festival of Contemporary Dance, and Palacio de Bellas Artes, among many others.
