Kanopy Dance Company kicks off their season of exuberant fetes and strong emotions with Martha Graham’s masterwork Celebration.  This signature piece is paired with Jacqulyn Buglisi’s hauntingly beautiful Sospiri, performed by guest artists Virginie Mécène, Kevin Predmore, both of whom have extensive experience as principal dancers with Buglisi Dance Theatre and the Martha Graham Dance Company.  Kanopy’s Artistic Directors Lisa Thurrell and Robert E. Cleary join the festival with darker muses in their original creations Miserere (Have Mercy), and Fear is the Enemy.
