Peter London Global Dance Company Returns to Miramar Cultural Center with ATLANTIC CROSSING
Miami, FL (September 22, 2018) – The Peter London Global Dance Company (PLGDC), Miami’s iconic contemporary dance company, returns to the Miramar Cultural Center on Sunday, October 21, 2018 with an exciting performance titled ATLANTIC CROSSING, presenting the First International Cultural Dance Exchange to celebrate the common ground of artists everywhere in pursuit of freedom via creative expression.
ATLANTIC CROSSING will celebrate the survival of the cultural expressions of dance and music in the African Diaspora with a joint performance of PLGDC and The Company Dance Theatre (CDT) of Jamaica. While the program will celebrate the retention of African dance and music in the new world and that of the Caribbean, contributions of contemporary dance developed by Caribbean dance masters will be a force in the dance performance.
The performance is at 4:00 p.m. Tickets prices are $27, $37, $47 and are on sale now through the Miramar Cultural Center box office and online through www.miramarculturalcenter.org
“The raw energy of the PLGDC dancers is unparalleled in South Florida, and it is our goal to offer varied audiences a unique dance experience and exposure to cutting-edge contemporary dance by our own South Florida talent,” comments PLGDC Founder and Artistic Director Perter London. London founded the company in 2011 with a grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation to educate and train local dancers and present new works by local choreographers who have not had the opportunity to professionally realize their tremendous gifts. Many of these dancers have launched careers around the country and world, but return to Miami where London provides a home base and spring board for both established and new talent.
ATLANTIC CROSSING is the first program in PLGDC’s international cultural dance exchange program. The next cultural exchange performance will take place in Jamaica with a presentation by the PLGDC and CDT on November 16-18, 2018.
The dance season concludes with PLGDC’s year-end performances at the Adrienne Arsht Center, which will center on a timely celebration of women and their contributions to the arts. The company will perform WOMEN’S VOICES and MEN’S HEARTS TO WOMEN in the Carnival Studio Theater at the Adrienne Arsht Center from December 28 at 7:00 p.m., December 29 at 2:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. and December 30, 2018 at 5:00 p.m. Tickets on sale now online www.arshtcenter.org.
