Smuin Ballet breaks the boundaries of traditional dance with this evening of vibrant, innovative works from some of the Bay Area's most exciting choreographers. Choreographer Garrett Ammon unleashes his own take on Tchaikovsky's iconic score in Serenade for Strings, using movement to reflect the composition's intensity and precision. In Objects of Curiosity, Smuin's choregrapher-in-residence Amy Seiwert explores the tensions between desire and restraint, pairing them with a delicate score by Philip Glass and Foday Musa Suso that mirrors her study on stage. The evening concludes with Frankie and Johnny, Michael Smuin's passionate tribute to the legendary Gene Kelly, danced to a soundtrack of some of the biggest names in Latin and mambo music. Learn More
From the lands of the pharaohs to the Palace of Fine Arts, Anfoushi Egyptian Folkloric Dance Troupe makes their only Bay Area performance, as part of their first U.S. tour. Direct from Egypt, Anfoushi is recognized internationally, from the Middle East to Russia to Canada to eastern Europe and beyond, for distinct authenticity in presenting the rich musical and dance traditions of the Alexandria region. Steeped in both ancient and contemporary history, Egypt has a gracious legacy of cultural contributions for thousands of years. Anfoushi captures the essence of the Egyptian folkloric heritage in a full spectrum of dynamics in costumes, melodies and movements that captivate audiences with their sheer energy and exuberance. The concert is a journey into the delightful artistry of Alexandria and a closer glimpse at the folkloric tapestry of Egypt.
Sponsored by The Egyptian American Society, proceeds will help benefit the building of the first children’s cancer hospital in Cairo.
