27 companies in 11 performances over 9 days? That's a whole lot of talent in one theater.

 

The "Come Together" festival, presented by the jazz-based, gaga-inflected, hard-driving Koresh Dance Company, opens tonight and runs this and next weekend at Philly's Suzanne Roberts Theatre. The host company performs on every program with a rotating group of guests, who include Rennie Harris Puremovement and The Rock School. (Many of the companies are based locally.) As detailed in this article in The Inquirer, Koresh curated the lineup and has high hopes to make this year's edition a recurring one. For more info and to buy tickets, see the Koresh website.
