Description

Theatricality, precision technique, bravura performance, wit and a flair for the off-beat and innovative will be embodied in the Companyís 12th Season. Former American Ballet Theatre star Susan Jaffe has emerged as a choreographic talent to watch who is taking exhilarating classical technique beyond its boundaries to make decidedly edgy and finely crafted dances. Yuri Zhukovís Railroad Joint was a hit of Company Cís 2013 Gala performance, and this expanded version will now take its place on the main stage season set to a trance-like score that combines electronic music with train sounds and superbly athletic dancing. Nine Person Precision Ball Passing is a taut and riveting exploration of the finer points of movement as nine dancers circulate colorful balls in a witty, rapid-fire stream that is part dance and part living puzzle. Completing the program is Charles Andersonís signature movement essay to Ravelís iconic score.
