San Francisco Ballet in Dawson's Anima Animus

DIGITAL PROGRAM 05

DIGITAL PROGRAM 05

Looking for poetry, drama, and extreme virtuoso dancing? Helgi Tomasson’s 7 for Eight, a lyrical, neoclassical work for eight dancers incorporates sensual adagio, exuberant allegro, and everything in between. Master storyteller Cathy Marston recreates Edith Wharton’s novella Ethan Frome in her ballet, Snowblind. David Dawson’s Anima Animus is ballet pushed to every extreme: technique stretched to its outer limit and physically emotional virtuosity.

*Note: 7 for Eight, Snowblind, and Anima Animus will be archival captures.
