Founded in 2003, Cedar Lake has quickly established itself as one of the boldest and most accomplished contemporary dance companies in the United States. Prominently appearing in the Matt Damon/Emily Blunt film The Adjustment Bureau, Cedar Lake boasts an exceptionally talented corps of 16 dancers who will perform a wide-ranging program that includes newly commissioned works by two choreographers well known to White Bird audiences, Great Britain’s Hofesh Shechter and Canada’s Crystal Pite.
