Look Who’s Coming to Dinner

Stefanie Batten Bland Company Jean Claude Dhier

Co-presented as part of Crossing the Line Festival,
produced by the French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF)

Jerome Robbins Award–winning choreographic artist and filmmaker, Stefanie Batten Bland makes her Crossing the Line Festival debut with the world premiere of Look Who’s Coming to Dinner. Inspired by the 1967 Stanley Kramer film starring Sydney Poitier, Katherine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy, the work pays tribute to those who paved the way toward acceptance in love and life. Set around a transformative dinner setting, seven dance-theatre artists explore access and ritual as they seek a seat at the table. The choreography is set to a new composition by Paul Damien Hogan. Originally developed as a work-in-progress for Juilliard New Dances 2018.
