About the Festival

What happens when 12 of the most innovative international choreographers are given the opportunity to create with our uniquely expressive and daring dancers? Join us for a festival of 12 world premieres spanning 4 programs over 17 days. Curious? #Unbound2018

 

Alonzo King's The Collective Agreement, Christopher Wheeldon's Bound To, Justin Peck's Hurry Up, We're Dreaming

Sculpted space. Digital dependency. Classicism in sneakers. Three unique voices offer three distinct takes on where ballet’s headed.

Myles Thatcher's Otherness, Cathy Marston's Snowblind, David Dawson's Anima Animus

Groupthink. Tragic passion. Opposing energy. Three innovative thinkers examine the ties that bind and the differences that distinguish.

Stanton Welch's Bespoke, Trey McIntyre's Your Flesh Shall Be a Great Poem, Annabelle Lopez Ochoa's Guernica

The ephemeral in the eternal. Family heritage. Savage beauty. Three artists move forward while drawing from the past.

Edwaard Liang's The Infinite Ocean, Dwight Rhoden's LET’S BEGIN AT THE END, Arthur Pita's Björk Ballet

The space between life and death. Passionate connectivity. The music of Björk. Three dancemakers evoke the spiritual connections that span life and death, the beauty and pain in relationships, and a surrealist dream ballet.
