Description

The company's fifth season program features the premiere of 'ourevolution,' as well as two critically acclaimed collaborations-'field the present shifts' (2013) and 'Mine is Yours' (2012).

'ourevolution' brings choreographer/director Robert Dekkers together with San Francisco-based painter Enrique Quintero. Set to a mesmerizing score by composer Nils Frahm, the work explores technology's ability to facilitate meaningful conversation between individuals and communities.

Back by popular demand is 'field the present shifts,' featuring architects Robby Gilson and Catherine Caldwell, composer Matthew Pierce, and lighting designer David Robertson. The "Five High" program will also include 'Mine is Yours,' with composer Daniel Berkman, vocalist Artemis, and costume designer Susan Roemer.

"There are a few 'must-sees' every summer, and Post:Ballet is definitely one of them." -Heather Desaulniers, Critical Dance

"Robert Dekkers' mind is like a bullet train, and as we race to keep up with him we realize his dances are not just landscapes of streamlined bodies making pretty shapes, but also witty social commentary." - Carla Escoda, The Huffington Post
