THREE DANCE MAKERS REINTERPRET BALLET

BESPOKE

This poignant, neoclassical ensemble work was inspired by the transience of dancers’ careers, and pays homage to their love for, and commitment to the artform.


HUMMINGBIRD

Composer: Philip Glass
Choreographer: Liam Scarlett

This 2014 tour de force showcases the creator of Frankenstein’s non-narrative passion and innovative extension of classical ballet style.


SANDPAPER BALLET

Composer: Leroy Anderson
Choreographer: Mark Morris

Not performed in over 10 years, this full-scale, joyous romp of a ballet returns, set to the nostalgic Americana tunes of Leroy Anderson.
