Reviews & Ratings
World Premiere: Ma Cong, Choreographer
Swipe: Val Caniparoli, Choreographer
Symphony of Psalms: Michael Smuin, Choreographer
After the smash success "French Twist" from Smuin Ballet’s 2009-2010 season, choreographer Ma Cong returns to create a World Premiere on the spirited San Francisco company. Currently a resident choreographer and principal dancer at Tulsa Ballet, Cong studied at the Beijing Dance Academy. As a choreographer, Cong has created many works for Tulsa Ballet as well as works for other companies such as Ballet Met Columbus, Ballet Florida, Ballet Nouveau Colorado, Richmond Ballet, Houston Ballet and many others.
A highly-technical piece for four men and three women, "Swipe" is set to a remix of String Quartet No. 2 by London composer Gabriel Prokofiev, grandson of Sergei Prokofiev. A classically-trained composer known for electro club and hip-hop music, Prokofiev’s music compliments the pulsing energy of Caniparoli’s choreography as well as the choreographer’s penchant for mixing classical and contemporary styles.
Rounding out the program is Smuin’s "Symphony of Psalms," set to Stravinsky’s score, called “a varied and inspiring collection of stunning choreography” by the SF Bay Times. This full company work blends Stravinsky’s powerful and mesmerizing score with Smuin’s dynamic choreography.
