Pacific Northwest Ballet’s 50th season is nearing an end with a program of three on-stage premieres (A Veil Between Worlds was initially created during the height of the pandemic). followed by a special one-night only Encore Performance celebrating departing principal dancer Lesley Rausch.
“Edwaard uses the language of dance to explore themes of connection and distance between people. Dance becomes a lens through which we contemplate the elimination of barriers, while discovering unexpected points of connection.
Annabelle is a fearless storyteller addressing concepts and subjects with a devotion and perspective that guides us to newfound understanding. In her newest work for PNB, she uses the Scarab beetle and the Egyptian god Khepri, both associated with rebirth and renewal, as sources of inspiration.
Kiyon is a true neo-classicist with a fresh approach to choreography and color that feels very much part of his generation. We see the infinite and exciting possibilities through dance.
In WORLDS TO COME, each choreographer, in collaboration with composers and designers, creates work that reflects our time.”
There are also several special events that complement the performances. Ticketholders are invited to join dance historian Doug Fullington for 30-minute pre-performance Ballet Talks as well as post-performance Meet the Artist chats with Boal and PNB dancers.
For those wanting a preview and intimate look at what goes on behind the scenes in preparation for a professional ballet production, PNB Conversations & Dress Rehearsal provide just that.
All live showings for Worlds to Come will be held at Marion Oliver McCaw Hall.
