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.

If the name suggests traditionalism, witnessing a performance by the “stunning” (New York Times) Lyon Opera Ballet is sure to overturn all expectations. The company’s 2006 Zellerbach Hall performances feature works by three pioneering female European choreographers: Maguy Marin’s Groosland, which marries effortless whimsy with the music of Bach’s Second Brandenburg Concerto; Anne Theresa de Keersmaeker’s Grande Fuge, a brilliant work by this groundbreaking Belgian dance-maker, performed to Beethoven’s score; and a new work by forceful choreographer Sasha Waltz, whose own company has performed twice at Cal Performances to great acclaim.
Program: Maguy Marin/Groosland, set to Bach’s Brandenburg Concertos Nos 2 & 3; Anne Theresa de Keersmaeker/Die Grosse Fuge, set to Beethoven’s Op. 133 for String Quartet; Sasha Waltz/Fantasie, set to Schubert’s Fantasie in F minor
Program notes will be available one week before the performance.
Lyon Opera Ballet , founded in 1969, is known for its experimental and adventurous repertoire. Widely praised as a classical company dancing contemporary choreography, it is the company of choice for dance pioneers such as William Forsythe, Jiri Kylian, Maguy Marin, Nacho Duato, Angelin Preljocaj, Bill T. Jones, Trisha Brown, and others. The company has commissioned new works as well as performed innovative productions of classics such as Cinderella, Coppelia and Carmen. Under the direction of Greek-born Yorgos Loukos, the troupe has radically re-envisioned its role in the dance world, building a repertory by the world’s finest neoclassic and postmodern choreographers.
