With a title that alludes to an inciting moment in the creative life of one of the biggest icons in music history, Miles Davis and the Blue Flame Incident celebrates the life and work of one of the most innovative jazz musicians of all time. An exploration of Davis' career, this unique performance combines video clips, voiceovers that brings to life sections of his autobiography, still images and, most importantly, incredible live music courtesy of the Metta Quintet. As the musicians perform a variety of songs that demonstrates the range and imagination of the trumpeter, bandleader and cultural provocateur that was Miles Davis, an inspirational story of the man himself is woven with the supporting media in this not-to-be-missed show.

Together they mix courage with skill revealing the inevitable beauty of being human.
Join Saint Joseph Ballet for its 24th annual concert at Irvine Barclay Theatre and revel in the generations that Saint Joseph Ballet moves forward.
Celebrating 25 years as a choreographer, Sally Silvers premieres Ruptable, her first work commissioned by Saint Joseph Ballet. In this piece, the performers navigate their quirky, off-kilter moves with tenderness, intensity, and humor to help all of us question: what is normal, what is out of control, what is worth holding onto? By excavating the twists and tensions of personal and cultural discovery, Ruptable stages their interruptions, eruptions, corruptions, ruptures. Or lets them loose.
Living with Murky was sparked by Rios Glaser’s current interest in being comfortable in states of fluidity—where complexity, unanswered questions and subtexts, can exist without resolve. A collaboration with lighting designer Ben Tusher, this piece includes a cast of 60 dancers who span in age from 10-32. From this open and sometimes muddled place the insight on the exquisite necessity for difference becomes apparent.
Nami Yamamoto returns with a re-staging of a howling flower bloomed in my eye. Moving, searching and relentless, this piece is a poignant study in determination and constancy. Yamamoto offers us the rare chance to admire these young dancers as they deliver a performance requiring the maturity of an ancient soul.
