YBCA presents Isadora Duncan Dance Award–winning choreographer Gregory Dawson and his contemporary ballet company dawsondancesf.

dawsondancesf aims to break down the barriers placed on classical ballet, bringing to light the strength and beauty that artists possess within themselves. Dawson envisions choreography as a process by which artists transform themselves, audiences, and the world of dance that surrounds us.

les vérités builds on the rich, raw, highly energized style of movement that dawsondancesf has been building for the past decade, revisiting themes that disrupt traditional forms of choreography. Aspiring to evoke a deep truth about artistry, style, and legacy, les vérités includes live music by Richard Howell, the Classical Revolution, and Ron Kurti, as well as visual media by John Ramirez.
