Description

Named one of Dance Magazine’s “25 to Watch” in 2010, the Bay Area’s Company C Contemporary Ballet‘s eclectic and electrifying style redefines ballet for a new generation with its dynamic and adventurous repertoire. The 2011 season opens with an emotional thrill ride from the depths of David Anderson’s soliloquy of grief, loss and hope to heart-pounding and heart-rending ballets by Maurice Causey, Daniel Ezralow, Charles Anderson and Benjamin Bowman. This program challenges the full-on athleticism of the Company and rewards audiences with breath-taking moments of galvanizing choreography, theatrical intensity and the excitement of dance pushed to its technical limits.
