Event Times

  • January 13 at 7:00 p.m.
  • January 14 at 7:00 p.m.

Jermaine Thornton is setting a new work Are You With Me? with music by Max Richter. It is a moving work about being left adrift by those you count on when the bond is needed most. Mr. Thornton will also be performing, courtesy of Florida Dance Theatre in The Summoning.

Shelley Bourgeois has worked with the students on her piece, Flight. It is a fast –paced, high-energy, dynamic modern work beautifully crafted and lovely to experience. She is also restaging Silent Witness originally created in 2008 at FSU. This piece is a dramatic modern work portraying shades of loss and support among the dancers. The Siren’s Call, a Contemporary Ballet from the Siren’s perspective as Odysseus slips through their grasp, is offered by Susan Olson.

For the Balletomanes, two Classical Variations from Don Quixote and La Bayadere choreographed by Marius Petipa, staged by Susan Olson embody the beauty and athleticism of classical ballet. The Sounds of Silence by Simon and Garfunkel fill the stage in a new work about the heartbreak of not being heard. The Unseen, music by Archangel is a ballet about being unseen protectors, both works are by Susan Olson.

Rounding out the program is an ultra-contemporary ballet by nationally acclaimed choreographer Rick McCullough, The Summoning, music by Les Tambours du Bronx evokes ritualistic images with a fierceness and fire that capture the heart and imagination!
