Smuin’s season finale is headlined by soaring works that highlight the company’s artistry and depth of talent, including two new works created by women. Smuin will unveil the newest World Premiere by Amy Seiwert, as well as the company premiere of "Sextette" by Kate Skarpetowska, a choreographer named one of “25 to Watch” by Dance Magazine. Originally choreographed on Smuin artists for the National Choreographers Initiative in 2021, the whimsical piece is set to Johann Sebastian Bach’s “Violin Concerto No. 1 in A Minor.” This impressive mixed repertory program continues with Michael Smuin’s stirring "Dream," a pas de deux set to “Romanza” from Chopin’s “Piano Concerto No. 1 in E minor, Op. 11.” Originally commissioned as an anniversary gift by a devoted Smuin patron, "Dream" will be seen for the first time in two decades. Rounding out the bill is Val Caniparoli’s "Swipe," a highly technical piece for four men and three women set to a remix of “String Quartet No. 2” by Gabriel Prokofiev, grandson of Sergei Prokofiev. A classically trained composer known for electronic and hip-hop music, Prokofiev’s music complements the pulsing energy of Caniparoli’s blend of classical and contemporary movement.
