The young, talented 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
Born in Paris in 1962,* Jérôme Bel* studied at the Centre National de Dance Contemporaine of Angers and went on to dance for myriad choreographers in France and Italy. He is a significant figure in a group of contemporary European choreographers who question the fundamental parameters of their own practice—and of choreography in general.
Bel is acclaimed for a unique provocation to strip away all stage artifice in an effort to create a more honest connection between the watchers and performers. His conceptual work is focused on altering expectations and his productions are legendary for stretching the boundaries of the philosophical underpinnings of dance.
