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

“…they step in boldly, embracing a surrealism and a funky trashiness… they look at theaters as their visual playing field where anything goes.” —SF Bay Guardian
Local dance sensations Kunst-Stoff, partner with Lighthouse for the Blind to create “as we close their eyes,” a singular interactive dance experience that invites audiences to “see” with other senses and to think differently about what dance can be. “In-Sight” features the company’s signature airborne athleticism set against Cara Judea Alhadeff’s backdrop of large, lush, unnerving photographs. Minimalist and messy, Kunst-Stoff delivers another not-to-be-missed experimental adventure.
