Closing this unprecedented season is Ballet West’s annual Choreographic Festival.
This year, the festival will showcase an exciting first-time collaboration between two Utah arts icons, the Sundance Institute and Ballet West. Principal Artist Emily Adams and Katy Jarzebowski, an alumna of Sundance Institute’s Music Film Program, have been commissioned by Ballet West to create a new ballet with original choreography and a music score for a world premiere work.
Matthew Neenan returns to Ballet West to create a world premiere. Neenan’s inventive and contemplative work has appeared around the globe, including Ballet West, where in 2014, he choreographed The Sixth Beauty, which The New York Times said, “possessed soulfulness and life.”
