This diverse array traverses the visual spectrum, from the quiet, wistful longing invoked by The Blue of Distance to the boldly striking and ever-changing Kandinsky backdrop that sets the stage for the equally dynamic choreography of Pictures at an Exhibition.

Program

Carousel (A Dance): This charming distillation of Rodgers and Hammerstein's classic Carousel recalls the poignant romance and thrilling drama of the celebrated Broadway production. 

The Blue of Distance: Conjuring feelings of wistful longing, six dancers provide a continually changing landscape as a lone outsider moves poetically among them. 

The Infernal Machine: This piece finds a man and woman intertwined as they push and pull their way through a buzzing score.

Pictures at an Exhibition: Like the ever-changing Wassily Kandinsky watercolors that set the stage, Pictures at an Exhibition’s ten dancers move in varying combinations to display a plethora of emotion, from raw and wild to solemn and soulful.

Year of the Rabbit: Set to an orchestration of Sufjan Stevens’ 2002 electronica album Enjoy Your Rabbit, Justin Peck’s acclaimed Year of the Rabbit highlights its corps de ballet as they form intricate and architectural patterns that envelope its featured dancers.
