John Coltrane, who lived in Philadelphia in the 1940s and ’50s, is the subject of this latest work by dance company Rosas. Four dancers perform both improvised and composed movements to the jazz innovator’s 1965 album that’s an “ode to divine love,” A Love Supreme. Sit back and see how the cast interprets the seminal work, which begins with a simple tenor saxophone riff before eventually reaching crescendo in a cacophony of piano, bass, drums and more of Trane’s sweet, sweet sax.
