  3. Smuin Ballet presents “Dance Series 2”


Smuin’s season finale will be headlined by the World Premiere of Tupelo Tornado from international superstar Annabelle Lopez Ochoa. This extraordinary new ballet inspired by the life and music of Elvis is her first creation for Smuin. Ochoa’s profile has continued to skyrocket since Smuin introduced Bay Area audiences to the Colombian- Belgian dancemaker in 2017 with the West Coast Premiere of her critically acclaimed Requiem for a Rose. Also on the bill is Smuin Associate Artistic Director Amy Seiwert’s Broken Open, set to a lush score from renowned cellist and composer Julia Kent. Kent, who creates music using looped cello, found sounds, and electronics, will perform live at opening weekend performances of “Dance Series 2” in San Francisco. Closing the bill is Smuin dancer Brennan Wall’s vivid and complex Untwine for four couples, set to Vivaldi’s “The Four Seasons” reinterpreted by Max Richter; and Michael Smuin’s dreamy Starshadows, an evocative adagio for three couples exploring the mystery and beauty of intimate relationships.
