The Lula Washington Dance Theatre performed in the 2012 LA Dance Festival at the Diavolo space in downtown Los Angeles. The company performed Lula’s “For Those Who Live and Die For Us.” It celebrates the soldiers – men and women – who risk their lives for their country.
The festival was produced by Diavolo Dance Theater and Brockus Project Dance Company April 14 & 15. It offered an opportunity to see an array of local contemporary modern dance companies all in one place. The program was impressive. Los Angeles has some excellent dance companies — many of them floating below the radar.
It was good to take part in this event. Our dance company has focused more on touring in recent years. Now, we selectively take opportunities to perform at local festivals and events that are produced by other people. It gives us a chance to show local audiences Lula’s tour repertory more often.
