France dances.

To celebrate its 30th anniversary, France's Montpellier Dance Festival is chock-full of powerhouse dance companies. American staples such as the Merce Cunningham and Trisha Brown groups join forces with talent from across the globe. Nederlands Dans Theater, with their exquisite precision and flawless lines, presents works by Jiri Kylian and Ohad Naharin; and Akram Khan performs his latest solo, Gnosis. William Forsythe's avant-garde installations, such as White Bouncy Castle and City of Abstract, will be on display, as well as a series of videos that explore Forsythe as an "instigator." June 18-July 7. See www.montpellierdanse.com.
