The Wanderer

Jessica Lang Dance

After last season’s world premiere of Tesseracts of Time, commissioned by the Harris Theater and the inaugural Chicago Architecture Biennial, prolific choreographer Jessica Lang creates a wondrous, romantic world in “The Wanderer.” This contemporary story ballet features sweeping choreography, imaginative set design, and beautiful dancing set to Franz Schubert’s moving operatic song cycle, “Die schöne Müllerin,” performed live.

Hailed “a master of visual composition” by Dance Magazine, the Bessie Award winning Jessica Lang seamlessly incorporates striking design elements and transforms classical ballet language into artfully crafted, emotionally engaging contemporary work. Lang challenges the collaborative process and excels in her unconventional collaborations.
