Anthology is a series of short dances, not unlike a collection of short stories.
So To Speak, by Penny Saunders
A U.S. premiere being brought to the Ballet Idaho stage in commemoration of the 100th year anniversary of women’s right to vote in Idaho, this work portrays both the private and public struggles women faced as they fought to be heard and seen.
Lickety-Split, by Alejandro Cerrudo
A unique melding of mischief and mystery, this series of quirky duets set to folk music takes us on a journey through playful relationships, off-balance characters, and tender moments of human connection.
A New Work, by Robyn Mineko Williams
A world premier where you will dive into a landscape of raw, honest movement that comes from the gut and results in a work that is at once smart, searching, and unpredictable.
Suite, by Nathan Powell
An essay in pure classicism, this work gives us all the satisfying elements of a skillfully composed ballet as it captures the quintessential ideals of this art form we hold so dear.
Love Fear Loss, by Ricardo Amarante
With live accompaniment from Del Parkinson, this work strives to capture a narrative each of us knows all too well – that of finding solace in another arms, then watching it slowly change shape, only to then drift away. The movement capturing this most intimate of stories is full of both technical mastery and emotionally charged abandon.
Something About Night (excerpt), by Lar Lubovitch
Set to choral songs of Franz Schubert, these duets, solos, and trios seamlessly weave together a series of nocturnal scenes with a flowing restrain, creating a space of refuge and quiet.
