Peter London Global Dance Company: Touch & Rain on Me

Modern, World Dance, Experimental, Classical Dance
Opening night on December 28 will feature an abbreviated, 75-minute performance.
Miami’s leading multicultural, contemporary-dance ensemble, Peter London Global Dance Company (PLGDC) is set to premiere TOUCH and RAIN ON ME, works created during the height of the pandemic. PLGDC created a contemporary, Afro-Caribbean dance-fusion compilation showcasing the struggles many people faced throughout the pandemic.
The pandemic evicted us from our daily “normal.” We witnessed home evictions. We experienced eviction in our personal and intimate relationships. And activities involving touch became a threat to health and life. The pandemic brought separation from careers, income, businesses, creativity, worship and play, while looming over the community like an unbeatable giant, like a David and Goliath standoff. The great outdoors of beaches, parks, woodlands, etc., became more beloved and desirable for our health and well-being.
The world premieres of TOUCH and RAIN ON ME will have live accompaniment by the world-class Ballet and Dance Orchestra (BAD), with scores commissioned by PLGDC and composed by BAD founding artistic director Ezra Haugabrooks. The program includes world premieres by London, Brooke Logan, Gentry Isaiah George and Justin Rapaport.
These include Rapaport's "Start Again" and "Passing By," recipient of the Danish Dance Theater Award at the 14th Copenhagen International Choreography Competition and danced by Justin and Evan Rapaport.
The program also includes a world premiere by Jamaii Melvin set to music by award-winning international jazz star Nicole Henry, and a commissioned score by award-winning international jazz musician Ettienne Charles for London's new work, "Kalinda Wash."
