Called "the most forward-looking American ballet company on the continent" (Contra Costa Times), San Francisco Ballet rarely disappoints in its selection and performance of innovative, genre-defining works. For this exciting triple bill, SF Ballet presents the world premiere of Hummingbird by Liam Scarlett, a contemporary ballet wunderkind who, at only 26, was recently appointed artist-in-residence at The Royal Ballet. The program also includes the return of Helgi Tomasson's masterful The Fifth Season and Serge Lifar's elegant Suite en Blanc, a brilliant showcase of French neoclassicism featuring "a parade of stunning individual and Hollywood-big corps performances" (San Jose Mercury News).

About the Artist*
Sheetal Gandhi is an intercultural, multi-disciplinary director/choreographer and performer. Her career has spanned genres and disciplines from her work as a creator and performer in Cirque du Soleil’s Dralion, to playing a leading role in the Broadway production of Bombay Dreams. Using a hybrid movement vocabulary influenced by Kathak, Modern and West African dance, as well as complex rhythmic structures, theatricality and singing, she crafts a virtuosic and evocative physical/vocal vocabulary. In exploring traditional forms of dance and music through decidedly postmodern compositional structures - all to comment on the social world in which we live - Gandhi’s work references the past, grounds itself in the present, but comments on the possibilities of the future.
