by BWW News Desk - Feb 9, 2016

WHAT:          Smuin Ballet concludes its 22nd Season with Dance Series Twofeaturing Oasis, a world premiere by acclaimed choreographer Helen Pickett, set to an original score by “House of Cards” composer Jeff Beal. With water scarcity and abundance as her theme and inspiration, Pickett's powerful new work will be both timely and universal. Pickett's work was last seen in San Francisco when Smuin Ballet presented her work “Petal,” which received critical acclaim. The series includes the highly anticipated return of Ji?í Kylián's Return to a Strange Land. The piece, set on six dancers, combines classical ballet and swiftly-changing geometric poses in a meditation on loss, healing, and hope, created as a tribute to Kylián's mentor John Cranko. Also on the bill is Val Caniparoli's spirited Tutto Eccetto il Lavandino (everything but the kitchen sink), which marries his trademark style and physicality with the music of Antonio Vivaldi. Caniparoli's work celebrates the versatility of the Smuin dancers, blending high-energy athleticism with wit and elegance. (more...)
