SPdp & Soy Sos will be performing four sections of repertory (Sol., FLOWERZ, ABBEY : In the Red, and sym.) along with creating a new original work that will have both the SPdp and IMC dancers in the cast. This work will be premiered at the Great Friends Dance Festival July 2018 and performed by both companies in Pittsburgh June 2019.
