Dana Tai Soon Burgess knows his way around a museum. The Smithsonian’s first choreographer-in-residence had a long partnership with the National Portrait Gallery, where his eponymous troupe has often performed.
This October, eight years after debuting his “Picasso Dances” at the Kreeger Museum, the company returns there with “The Mallorca Suite,” Burgess’s 30-minute, 10-performer dance inspired by the artwork of Joan Miró — specifically the Mallorca Series, which is in the Kreeger collection. Pianist Haskell Small will play the accompanying music, by Federico Mompou — who, like Miró, was born in Barcelona.
Kreeger Museum, 2401 Foxhall Rd. NW, Washington. dtsbdc.org.
