Smuin Ballet breaks the boundaries of traditional dance with this evening of vibrant, innovative works from some of the Bay Area's most exciting choreographers. Choreographer Garrett Ammon unleashes his own take on Tchaikovsky's iconic score in Serenade for Strings, using movement to reflect the composition's intensity and precision. In Objects of Curiosity, Smuin's choregrapher-in-residence Amy Seiwert explores the tensions between desire and restraint, pairing them with a delicate score by Philip Glass and Foday Musa Suso that mirrors her study on stage. The evening concludes with Frankie and Johnny, Michael Smuin's passionate tribute to the legendary Gene Kelly, danced to a soundtrack of some of the biggest names in Latin and mambo music. Learn More
Celebrating its 20th anniversary, one of Mexico’s most popular exports returns with a veritable fiesta of culture and folklore. The history of Mexican dance is long and rich, starting with the ancient civilizations that flourished in the country preceding the arrival of the first Europeans. Today, that legacy reflects a cultural melting pot, combining Mexican, Indian, Spanish, and African elements. The company celebrates that diverse history and the people of Mexico in colorful performances that have earned standing ovations from Cuba to Malaysia. The music will be performed live on authentic string instruments.
