Description: Los Angeles-based Aman Folk Ensemble's first work in modern dance/folk fusion, collaborating with composer-choreographer Laura Dean. The 24-month project was funded by Phillip Morris, the Lila Wallace-Reader's Digest Fund and the National Endowment for the Arts. The finished work, "Light," was a special commission made to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Los Angeles-based Aman Folk Ensemble. In addition to choreography, Dean is credited with costume design and music, co-composed with Aman's John Zeretzke. "Light" made its Los Angeles premiere in June 1994 at UCLA.
