The talented young dancers of Marat Daukayev Ballet Theatre perform two of ballet's most lyrical works: Sleeping Beauty and Paquita. With a sumptuous score by Tchaikovsky, a fairy tale plot of the triumph of good over evil and classical courtly style, Sleeping Beauty is the ideal production for Marat Daukayev Ballet Theatre's accomplished student dancers. Paquita is Petipa's virtuosic 1881 ballet about a young girl who saves the life of a young French officer, who himself is the target of a Spanish governor who plots to have him killed. A much-loved ballet that showcases the talents of its soloists, Paquita's choreography includes the famous Grand Pas Classique, the Pas de Trois and the Children's Mazurka. Learn More
Quotes & Highlights
“Blush is about boys and girls, loving, street fighting, falling out … raw sex, gritty humor and magical imagery.” —Financial Times
Described by the French newspaper Le Soir as “a cross between Trisha Brown and John Woo,” Belgian choreographer Wim Vandekeybus and his company Ultima Vez create confrontational and intensely physical works that push dancers and technology beyond their limits. An explosive synthesis of live action, film and music, his latest work Blush explores love in all its dangerous and exhilarating splendor. Featuring a wild rock soundtrack by David Eugene Edwards of the bands Woven Hand and 16 Horsepower, Blush is set against a flickering backdrop of film sequences projected in large scale; dancers dive from the stage into the screen and seamlessly reappear on film, transformed into water nymphs in an underwater netherworld – a production seething with emotion, energy and raw sensuality.
