World Premiere (2013-14 Season)

Choreographer: Ronald K. Brown
Music: Carl Hancock Rux, Yacoub & Various Artists

Four Corners, set to music of Carl Hancock Rux, along with various artists, brings to life the vision of four angels standing on the four corners of the earth holding the four winds.  Drawing inspiration from the lyrics of Rux's "Lamentations," Four Corners trails eleven dancers as they rise to seek a life of peace on the "mountaintop;" a powerful and hope-filled journey of tribulation, devotion and triumph.
