The first evening-length work by this fast-rising choreographer, A Dance for Dark Horses is packed with Lusk’s signature “gut-busting parody,” dry humor, and physical virtuosity. With an original score inspired by 90s pop beats, Lusk promises to tell stories about failure, success, and the power of group magic.

“Lusk is in a sweet spot as a choreographer . . . developing a movement vocabulary that literally vibrates at the intersection of classicism and pop action, like a slam-dancing sarabande.”—Sandra Kurtz, Seattle Weekly

“Kim Lusk makes glorious, rollicking, superb dance art.”—Paul Swanson
