Rite of Spring is the centerpiece of this contemporary program, and it promises to be a stellar world premiere. The ballet is set on the company by choreographer Edgar Zendejas to the score by Igor Stravinsky. The ritualistic and avant-garde nature of the piece delivers much to contemplate in its exploration of contemporary movement. Zendejas describes it as “a point of reflection where we release to the ecstatic dance between body and spirit, earth and the unknown.”
The evening will also feature Five by Gershwin from choreographer William Soleau—a work first performed by State Street Ballet in 2002—and Kassandra Taylor Newberry’s (con)version with music by Thomas Newman and The Junkman. Don’t miss this superb evening of remarkable repertory!
