Choreography: © Christopher Wheeldon | Music: Igor Stravinsky
Taking inspiration from Stravinsky's Pulcinella Suite, Wheeldon's ballet is an "elegant piece, beautifully jointed and crafted..." (The Guaridan).
Choreography: Itzik Galili | Music: Thomas Höfs
Wiggling hips. Break-neck twists and turns. Feats of grand athleticism. Galili's incredible spin on the classical pas de deux evokes a daring game of cat and mouse-a fierce, dynamic dance of seduction.
Choreography: Stephanie Martinez | Music: Igor Stravinsky
Award-winning, Chicago-based choreographer Martinez shares her newest work. Bliss! is set to Dumbarton Oaks Concerto, one of only two chamber concertos composed by Stravinsky.
Choreography: Itzik Galili | Music: Tom Waits
Described as a "broad, physical comedy" (Critical Dance), The Sofa takes shape as a love triangle run amok. Music by Grammy Award-winner Waits sets the tone for this comical take on gender, sexuality and relationships.
The Times Are Racing
Choreography: Justin Peck | Music: Dan Deacon
Tony® Award-winning Peck brings one of his most "arresting and complex" (The New York Times) works. A "sneaker ballet," The Times Are Racing channels the power of protest and the process for creating change.
