Jessica Lang Dance

When: Sat., April 21, 8 p.m. 2018

When creating her military-themed dance work, Thousand Yard Stare, choreographer Jessica Lang kept the concept of respect squarely in mind. As she explains in a promotional video, Lang engaged in deep conversations with veterans and therapists focused on treating conditions such as post-traumatic stress disorder as she formulated her tribute to the repercussions of war. Themes of fear, camaraderie, friendship and love thread through this poignant piece, set to Ludwig van Beethoven’s String Quartet No. 15 in A minor, Op. 132. New York City-based Jessica Lang Dance brings this moving meditation to Burlington on Saturday.

Price: $15-46.
