Prometheus Dance wraps up its 20th anniversary whirlwind of a season with several Boston premieres, Tabula Rasa and Prelude, along with a revisiting of the critically acclaimed Devil’s Wedding and La Giornata Omicida. Developed through a highly-charged and theatrical choreographic style, the dances of Prometheus (www.prometheusdance.org) are visually beautiful, physically intimate, and emotionally provocative ruminations about social issues and psychological intricacies.

Prometheus Dance is currently an ensemble of eight dancers performing contemporary dance / theatre created by the company's Artistic Directors Diane Arvanites-Noya and Tommy Neblett. Founded in 1987 by Noya, Prometheus Dance has become one of Massachusetts most outstanding and established modern dance companies, contributing quality dance performance, arts education and cultural service to the community.

The company is known for its performances of: the large-scale works Apokalypsis, concerning the world-wide refugee crisis; Dreams, based on Jungian symbolism; Impromptus & Intrigues, a modern setting of a Schubertiade; Anadimioupyia, exploring the beauty of Tourettes Syndrome; Opera Boston’s Nixon In China and The Pearl Fishers; repertory pieces performed to jazz, world and commissioned music; and outreach performances in public schools, homeless shelters and nursing homes.

Often included in the Boston area’s Ten Best in Dance lists, the company performs extensively both nationally and internationally. This spring’s concert will feature the performance work of Andy Taylor-Blenis, Callie Chapman Korn, Nicole Sell Danizio, Megan Schenk, Cristin Fagone, Rachel Bertone, Naoko Brown, and Kara Johnson.
