Miami-based Peter London Global Dance Company will present three world premieres: a work commissioned by the Arsht Center and choreographed by Jamar Roberts (former company member and resident choreographer with Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater) with a score by international jazz trumpeter/composer Etienne Charles; a choreography and performance by Lloyd Knight (principal dancer with Martha Graham Dance Company) and Richard Villaverde (soloist with  Martha Graham Dance Company) also set to music by Charles; and a new work by Justin Rapaport.

Company premieres will also include pieces choreographed by international hip-hop artist David Milome and Peter London.

PLGDC’s 12th season is radical and intoxicating, with hard-cut, mesmerizing bodies executing virtuosic techniques with depth and passion. One of Miami’s most exciting dance companies, PLGDC’s “new millennium” repertory is performed by dancers trained in contemporary, classical and Afro-diaspora techniques.

Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo, the world’s foremost all-male comic ballet company, brings its internationally beloved troupe of dancers to  the Arsht Center as part of its landmark 50th anniversary season, featuring gems from across the company’s groundbreaking repertoire. Founded in New York City in 1974, the company, affectionately known as the Trocks, has grown from its roots in late-late shows in off-off Broadway lofts to a global touring sensation, performing from Tokyo to Toronto and everywhere in between. The company dances en travesti with razor-sharp wit and breathtaking pointe work, performing polished parodies of works that span the classical ballet canon. Revered by ballet aficionados as well as by those who don’t know a plié from a jeté, the Trocks are “a guaranteed hoot for people who know nothing of ballet and an absolute must for those who think they know the originals.” (Sydney Star Observer).

Ailey American Dance Theater returns to the Arsht Center during its 65th anniversary season, led by Artistic Director Robert Battle – a Liberty City native.  Ailey drew upon his “blood memories” of Texas, the blues, spirituals and gospel for inspiration, which resulted in the creation of his most popular and critically acclaimed work, the must-see masterpiece Revelations. Although he created 79 ballets over his lifetime, Ailey maintained that his company was not exclusively a repository for his own work. Performances by Ailey’s extraordinary dancers showcasing the work of diverse choreographers and amplifying a myriad of voices have inspired an estimated 25 million people in 48 states, 71 countries and six continents. Details about the 2024 program to be performed at the Arsht Center will be announced in January 2024

Ayikodans returns to Miami with a world premiere commissioned by the Arsht Center. Founded by internationally acclaimed, Haitian-born choreographer, dancer and educator Jeanguy Saintus, Ayikodans is considered Haiti's most vibrant cultural ambassadors. Saintus has enabled the emergence of a new, contemporary Haitian aesthetic that, while deeply rooted in tradition, reflects a modern Caribbean culture and creativity that would surprise many who associate the country with disaster, poverty and helplessness.

Ayikodans have traveled extensively through Europe, the Caribbean, Latin America, Asia and the United States. They are thrilled to be back at the Adrienne Arsht Center for their seventh season in South Florida.
