This is an uplifting, powerful dance show that features love and hope about our country in act one, and a romantic look at love between people in act two.
For act one, seven of the DK dancers have choreographed pieces about what is beautiful and what they hope for the U.S. “The complexity of [Jillian] Godwin’s A Home for All was impressive. She mastered the elusive chore of representing multiplicity in the American Experience. The well-woven patterns, with nearly unstinting strife threaded amid notes of triumph, were busy but presented in an uncongested manner, making good use of the emotionally featureless music of Phillip Glass as a one-color canvas on which to paint.”
