“After dancing with Twyla Tharp for only two years, post-college, Jessica Lang knew she no longer wanted to perform...at first, she reached out to ballet schools and smaller companies (utilizing her classical ballet background), and American Ballet Theatre's Studio Company became her first freelance gig. Over the next decade, she amassed scores of commissions: Pennsylvania Ballet and Kansas City Ballet, as well as her alma mater Juilliard. In 2011, she started her own company. Next month, the Jessica Lang Dance company will premiere "Tesseracts of Time", a collaboration with noted architect Steven Holl, at the Harris Theater in Chicago.”
