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.

My husband and I both enjoyed this program immensely! The ballet "Earth" was particularly exceptional. The choreography was amazing! Twelve men performed this exciting, very masculine, energetic piece on a stage covered with thick ersatz dirt. The costumes were deep rust colored kilts (the same color as the dirt) with bare chests. One section involved strobe lights, adding to the intensity of this exciting work. I highly recommend this event!

Came to the show with some friends and absolutely loved it! Pre-ordered our drinks for intermission, which was great as lines were quite long.
The ballet was amazing, I really enjoyed seeing more male dancing and definitely liked the Earth...continued
