Why See Atlanta Ballet - Look Don't Touch?
A humorous triple bill
Expect dancers trapped on oversized Scrabble tiles, pop dance, and plenty laugh out loud moments in this playful parody of 'high art'. This inventive series of three works sees choreography from Alexander Ekman, Mark Morris and a world premiere from Yury Yanowsky.
Alexander Ekman's Cacti is a satire of contemporary dance and one of his most successful pieces to date. In it, 16 dancers write, run and fall to the accompaniment of a string quartet and a witty narration, as they try to 'escape'. And all before they each gain a cactus.
Sandpaper Ballet, choreographed by the infamous Mark Morris, is an all American crowd-pleaser with that the San Francisco Chronicle described as seemingly "as much fun to dance as it was to watch." Audiences won't be disappointed it contains all Morris's trademark wit and vividly inventive movement.
Yury Yanowsky, the recently retired Boston Ballet dancer, brings us his newest show-stopping commission. Yanowsky was principal dancer at the Boston Ballet for 20 years, and received first prize at the Prix de Lausanne and the Silver medal at the Varna International Ballet Competition and the International Ballet Competition.His Smoke and Mirrors was hailed as a "visual and choreographic masterpiece".
Performance date: 22 March 2019
