The Virginia-based Bowen McCauley Dance Company returns to Kennedy Center's Terrace Theater on October 27 and 28 with two world premieres in its first appearances at the venue since premiering Amygdala in 2005.

Receiving its first performance that weekend is Fratres, a collaboration with the Washington Performing Arts Society. For five female and two male dancers, the work is set to the music of Arvo P‹rt, performed live by pianist Jeffrey Watson and violinist Lina Bahn.

BMD's artistic director and choreographer will premiere a second new work in collaboration with Arlington's H-B Woodlawn Chamber Singers.

Also on the program are Bowing, with cellist Yvonne Caruthers; Requite Me Not (co-commissioned by the Kennedy Center), with dance soloist Tory North, Watson and tenor Gran Wilson; and Brahms Fantasies, featuring dancers from the Maryland Youth Ballet.

Sunday's (October 28) performance also includes a world premiere by BMD's Junior Company with percussionist Gregory Hudson.
