Sense of Human

Those of us who critique the arts go wild with delight when an artist
we’ve been watching for many years creates a work that transcends all
he has done before…

Sense of Human unfolds like a good book of short stories connected by a stylistically mature movement vocabulary wrought over the years…

…an evening-length piece that I would call his masterwork to date.

May 4 – May 7, 2017

Returning from a 17-city season tour, Koresh Dance Company is looking forward to a weekend-full of performances at the Suzanne Roberts Theatre located in the heart of Philadelphia.

Mr. Koresh will reprise the repertoire favorite Sense of Human, with musical collaboration by Greg Smith, Karl Mullen and introducing violinist Nick Kendall (Time for Three). The work explores the perception of reality, self-discovery, and the reasons we choose to wear carefully chosen facades that hide the basic yearnings by which we exist.
