“New York choreographer Jessica Lang has a knack for conceiving a complete universe in each dance—distinctive in its look and mood, sound and atmosphere…Lang’s visual sense is remarkable.” (LA Times) Simply put, Lang awes audiences by immersing them in the beauty of movement and music. A prolific choreographer, she creates dazzling works for her own dancers as well as the world’s most celebrated companies including American Ballet Theatre, Joffrey Ballet, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, and National Opera. JLD’s evening with Ovations includes Lang’s masterpiece, Thousand Yard Stare, “a remarkable evocation, minimal yet profound, of soldiers in formation and at war. Moving and masterful.” (Chicago Tribune)

Lang has a gift for conveying emotion with exquisite simplicity.”
