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.
