A self-proclaimed “visual artist whose medium is dance,” choreographer Jessica Lang incorporates striking design elements and transforms classical ballet language to conceive a complete universe, both artfully crafted and emotionally engaging. Lang finds an intriguing inspiration for her “visual music” in a piano suite by Fanny Mendelssohn, the sister of composer Felix Mendelssohn, for her ABT commission.
