The Pennington Dance Group (PDG) teams up with the British Modern Dance Company, Yorke Dance Project (YDP), for a highly anticipated joint venture highlighting the unique and dynamic visions of these young, vivacious dance companies. The performances mark the first time that these two modern dance companies have performed together. The companies will each perform a work from their repertory; PDG will perform Yield of Vision and YDP will perform City Limitless, and the third work will be a premiere joint venture in dance entitled Overlay. This first major collaboration for both companies infuses their different paths of creativity as well as a great cultural exchange of ideas. John Pennington, the artistic director of both the PDG and ARC Pasadena, enjoyed a 14-year career with the Bella Lewitzky Dance Company as a performer and teacher, serves on faculty at Pomona College and Cal State Long Beach, and is co-director of the Lewitzky Dance Gallery. Yolande Yorke-Edgell founded YDP in Los Angeles in 1998 shortly after dancing with Rambert Dance Company in London and Lewitzky Dance Company in Los Angeles.
