The thoroughly modern and brilliantly daring Post:Ballet presents its fifth season program -- Five High -- at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Lam Research Theater. This innovative evening of dance features the premiere of the new work ourevolution along with two critically acclaimed collaborations: 2013's field the present shifts and 2012's Mine is Yours. Set to a mesmerizing score by composer Nils Frahm, ourevolution brings together choreographer/director Robert Dekkers and San Francisco-based painter Enrique Quintero in a work that explores technology's ability to facilitate meaningful conversation between individuals and communities. Back by popular demand is field the present shifts, a collaborative project that features architects Robby Gilson and Catherine Caldwell, and 'Mine is Yours,' with composer Daniel Berkman, vocalist Artemis and costume designer Susan Roemer.

I liked some of the pieces yet others fell flat. The dance in all black costumes with mirrors was kind of interesting and funny. There was one beautiful piece set to slow music. The last piece went on too long with the same type of dancing and music. Wish it had been switched up more.
