The season opens with the Series Spotlight on Friday and Saturday, October 23 and 24 at 8:00 p.m. presenting Trisha Brown Dance Company during the group's final Proscenium Works Tour. Demonstrating the sweep of Trisha Brown's major works for the stage, the program includes Brown's most well-traveled dance, the beloved Set and Reset, with music by Laurie Anderson and full of bold partnering, If you couldn't see me, the final solo Brown choreographed for herself with music and visual presentation by Robert Rauschenberg, and Present Tense, revealing a career's worth of choreographic strategies in one piece, with music by John Cage and a vibrant set by painter Elizabeth Murray.
Next up is Words Adorned: Andalusian Poetry and Music from Al-Bustan Seeds of Culture on Saturday, December 5 at 8:00 p.m. Poetry comes to life when Al-Bustan Takht Ensemble, a classical Arab chamber ensemble, collaborates with the Philadelphia-based western choir The Crossing to premiere two new compositions by Arab-American composers Kareem Roustom and Kinan Abou-afach, setting Andalusian poetry to music.

Bold. Hilarious. Fearless. Annie Wilson's Lovertits takes the stage for three performances  Thursday through Saturday, January 28-30 at 8:00 p.m. This runaway hit of the 2014 Fringe Festival draws on Burlesque's pro-sex, body positive, over-the-top subversiveness, mixing it with post-modern dance. Lovertits looks at the evolving role of women in relation to their bodies, with performers turning their breasts into eyes, their vaginas into purses, and their bodies into landscapes.

The stage will burst with energy as Ronald K. Brown and his dance company Evidence perform Dance and the Spirit on Friday, February 26 at 8:00 p.m. Using a vocabulary drawn from many parts of the African Diaspora, Brown's movement  is flexible, richly expressive and irresistibly kinetic. Featured on the program will be his signature work Grace, an homage and ode to God's grace and the legacy of Alvin Ailey, and the spiritually uplifting The Subtle One, a recent collaboration with jazz pianist Jason Moran.

The season concludes with the lush sounds of Imani Winds on Friday, April 1 at 8:00 p.m. Considered North America's premier wind quintet, the GRAMMY-nominated ensemble creates meaningful bridges between European, American, African and Latin American traditions. The program features works of Hector Villa-Lobos, Elliot Carter, and Thierry Escaich.
