The dancers, gymnasts and actors of the gravity-defying Los Angeles-based company Diavolo will perform on Jan. 28. Parsons Dance and East Village Opera Company will present their spectacular rock opera Remember Me on Feb. 26–27. The groundbreaking Merce Cunningham Dance Company will visit Scottsdale on March 10 as part of its Legacy Tour, the last opportunity to see this great American dance company perform the choreography of the late Merce Cunningham before it disbands. The Philadelphia Dance Company, affectionately known as Philadanco, will perform new works commissioned for its 40th-anniversary season on March 19. Featuring live music by Barber, Chopin and Stravinsky, the world-renowned Mark Morris Dance Group will perform a program of four works on April 5–6.
