JACOB JONAS THE COMPANY dance troupe is gaining a national profile for its honest storytelling, visceral performances and visual content creation.
On Friday, March 15, 2019 at 8 p.m. in the Spanos Theatre, the Los Angeles-based company will present an evening of eclectic, dynamic movement.
Led by 26-year old namesake Jacob Jonas, the ensemble is widely recognized for its combination of breakdance, acrobatics and contemporary ballet techniques shining through narrative exposition.
“If breakdancing and concert dance had a baby, it would be the Jacob Jonas company. With balletic arabesques, acrobatic flips and spinning headstands, the dancers showed that they could hold their own in the studio and on the street.” – Los Angeles Times
A free pre-concert lecture will be led by company founder Jacob Jonas, beginning at 7 p.m. in the Philips Lecture Hall.
