Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre joins forces with Dance Theatre of Harlem for an unprecedented partnership at the August Wilson Center. A trailblazing company for classical dancers of diverse cultures, Dance Theatre of Harlem became a New York City institution in 1969 – the same year PBT was born in Pittsburgh. In PBT’s first cross-company pairing, PBT and DTH present a mixed bill program celebrating the ever-evolving face of American ballet. In addition to a signature piece performed by DTH, PBT will dance Dwight Rhoden’s StrayLifeLushHorn to Billy Strayhorn music played live by Pittsburgh Jazz Orchestra, and the two troupes will partner for a feature pas de deux.
