Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre joins forces with Dance Theatre of Harlem for an exciting collaboration at the August Wilson Center. In PBT’s first cross-company pairing, the two companies will present a mixed bill program celebrating the diversity of dance talent and styles in American ballet. A trailblazing company for classical dancers of diverse racial backgrounds, Dance Theatre of Harlem became a New York City institution in 1969 – the same year PBT was born in Pittsburgh. With five works on each eclectic program, the audience will see dance from choreographers, including Glen Tetley, Dwight Rhoden and Robert Garland, and hear music from artists, such as Johannes Brahms, Aretha Franklin, James Brown and Pittsburgh native Billy Strayhorn. Each company will perform signatures from its own repertoire, and the two troupes will collaborate on a staging of the bravura “Black Swan Pas de Deux” from Swan Lake.
