Three mesmerizing dance works come to life for Valentine’s Day.
The beauty of George Balanchine’s neoclassical ballet, Concerto Barocco, combines with the rich modernism of Stephen Mills’ CARBON53, and a contemporary work by choreographer Amy Seiwert, titled Renaissance.
Concerto Barocco, a neo-classical masterpiece created by George Balanchine is considered a personification of Bach’s music… “see the music, hear the dance.”
Following on her success from HER STORIES, Choreographer, Amy Seiwert, returns with a thrilling Austin premiere, Renaissance. Set to the music of Kitka, a women’s a cappella vocal ensemble, Seiwert’s Renaissance explores music from Eastern European traditions, as it honors the strength of community and women standing together.
CARBON53 explores the concept of repetition… the “carbon copy.” Stephen Mills poses the question, “Are we not all carbon copies of our ancestors?” Set to music of contemporary composers Philip Glass and Steve Reich.
TRIAD brings music to life through movement.
