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
West Coast Premiere
The potent and evocative productions of Reggie Wilson and his Fist & Heel Performance Group fuse contemporary dance with the spiritual traditions of the African Diaspora, punctuating the movement with body percussion, aspirated breath, singing and shouts. For this new work, The Good Dance – dakar/brooklyn, Wilson teamed up with Congolese choreographer Andréya Ouamba to examine the metaphoric, historic and real-world parallels between the Mississippi and Congo rivers and their respective cultures.
