A gleeful romp through some of Broadway's most beloved numbers and two exciting world premieres will take center stage as Smuin Ballet closes out its 20th anniversary season with XXcentric. Choreographed by the company's late, great founder Michael Smuin, Dancin' With Gershwin explores the evolution and reinvention of American dance, with a little help from the Great White Way. The world-premiere ballet But now I must rest comes from Smuin choreographer-in-residence Amy Seiwert and draws inspiration from the lush music of Cesária Évora, aka the Queen of Morna. The program's other world-premiere piece, choreographer Val Caniparoli's Tutto Eccetto il Lavandino (everything but the kitchen sink), blends the music of Vivaldi and the company's high-energy athleticism with wit and reflective beauty.

Quotes & Highlights
“…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.
