“New York choreographer Jessica Lang, artistic director for Jessica Lang Dance founded in 2011,
has been spending time on Arizona stages of late. Recently the company performed in Tucson and in
Wickenburg, and they'll perform this month at Mesa Arts Center, with a touring program that
includes five dance works and one film. Her recent Arizona adventures included a two-week residency at the Del E. Webb Center for the Performing Arts in Wickenburg, where she completed the creation of movement for her first full-length story ballet called The Wanderer. When Lang landed in Wickenburg, she'd yet to finalize movement or design elements. The Made in Wickenburg Residency Program made all those finishing touches, including elements that reflect the
Arizona landscape, possible.”
