ANNABELLE LOPEZ OCHOA - Mammatus (music: Michael Gordon, Weather One)

With this program of new and recent works by some of the most exciting choreographers working today, The Joffrey Ballet stays true to its 60-year reputation for innovation and eclecticism. Performed to a live Philip Glass score, Justin Peck's In Creases showcases his keen eye for manipulating bodies to form complex geometric structures. Annabelle Lopez Ochoa creates a spellbinding depiction of a turbulent cloud formation in Mammatus, and Swedish choreographer Alexander Ekman's Joy, a Cal Performances co-commission, receives its West Coast premiere.
