'Picasso Dances' at the Kreeger
Dana Tai Soon Burgess and his eponymous dance company culminated their three-month residence program March 26 at the Kreeger Museum in collaboration with the Embassy of Spain with a premiere of "Picasso Dances," inspired by four of the artist's paintings in the museum's collection. Burgess said that he felt "exposure to art adds to the creative process." The choreographer traveled the world as an American Cultural Ambassador for the State Department. He dedicated the performance to Picasso and composer Manual de Falla as well as to the memory of his late father.
