WHERE: Flex Space @ 33 Hawley St, Northampton MA

The Center for the Arts presents the Lisa Leizman Dance Company in concert on Friday, December 14 in the new Flex theater space at the Northampton Community Arts Trust Building, 33 Hawley Street. The 7:30 pm performance of “Long Way Home” celebrates the company’s debut in this recently opened venue. It is followed by a trademark festive dinner reception prepared by members of the troupe. Tickets for the concert and reception are $15 for adults, $7 for children under 10. They are available online in advance at Brown Paper tickets and at the door. Reservations are recommended.

About “Long Way Home”: After five years of wandering throughout the greater Pioneer Valley, awaiting a new home for the Center, this long-time resident company finally has a new residence. Grateful and joyful, the dancers will present audience favorites "Spiegel im Spiegel," set to music by Arvo Part and “the amen of calm waters," with music by Ludovico Einaudi. The concert will also include “the secret that bamboo guards” with music by composer-in-residence Andrea Kwapien.

Leizman: “There are no shortcuts in art. Do the work. Be tenacious. Be resilient. Keep going. Applaud the beautiful, elegant destination. Celebrate the journey, no matter how far. Take the long way home.”
