The thoroughly modern and brilliantly daring Post:Ballet presents its fifth season program -- Five High -- at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Lam Research Theater. This innovative evening of dance features the premiere of the new work ourevolution along with two critically acclaimed collaborations: 2013's field the present shifts and 2012's Mine is Yours. Set to a mesmerizing score by composer Nils Frahm, ourevolution brings together choreographer/director Robert Dekkers and San Francisco-based painter Enrique Quintero in a work that explores technology's ability to facilitate meaningful conversation between individuals and communities. Back by popular demand is field the present shifts, a collaborative project that features architects Robby Gilson and Catherine Caldwell, and 'Mine is Yours,' with composer Daniel Berkman, vocalist Artemis and costume designer Susan Roemer.

I had tears in my eyes most of the performance - it was stunningly beautiful!
Formally organized in 1994, the Guangzhou Ballet has already produced over a dozen accomplished programs embracing both Western classics and original ballets based on Chinese themes. The company has participated in memorable collaborations with the Chinese National Opera; performed before cheering audiences in Cuba, Spain, France, Germany, Australia, and Canada; and won awards from the Paris, Moscow, and Helsinki international dance competitions.
For its Berkeley visit, the ensemble will present its full-length production of Mei Lanfang, an inspired work based on the life of the legendary Peking Opera performer who shaped the art of Chinese theater for generations. Mei Lanfang has been praised internationally for its elaborate sets and costumes, as well as its captivating score by Liu Tingyu and the innovative choreography of Fu Xingbang and Zhang Dandan (the group’s artistic director).
