Why See San Francisco Ballet - Works By Liang, Marston, and Peck?
A West Coast Premiere: Program B
The world renowned San Francisco Ballet brings two dynamic west coast premieres to the Kennedy Center Opera House this fall, showcasing the work of choreographers on the frontlines of groundbreaking modern dance. Selected from the company's critically acclaimed Unbound Festival performances, Program B features the work of Taiwanese-born American choreographer Edwaard Liang, rising British choreographer Cathy Marston and New York City Ballet Resident Choreographer Justin Peck.
The program begins with Liang's The Infinite Ocean, a heartrending work inspired by a dying friend's final pledge to meet Liang on the other side. Six couples of dancers explore the line between life and death through synchronous duets imbued with beauty, meaning and emotional depth. Based on Edith Wharton's novella Ethan Frome, Marston's piece is less abstract. Centred on the story's love triangle, the narrative's trio reel from passion to despair and duty against the backdrop of a harsh winter. The evening closes with Peck's Hurry Up, We're Dreaming, a joyful new kind of sneaker ballet set to the music of electronic outfit M83.
Opening night: 25 October 2018
