Dennis Nahat’s Cannonade is pure rapid-fire energy, as fast as the mortarfire that inspired its title. This classical ballet is danced to Johann Sebastian Bach’s Piano Concerto No. 1 in D minor.
Choreographer Michael Smuin’s Shinju is a Japanese Romeo and Juliet style tragedy danced to a custom-composed score by renowned Japanese-American composer Paul Chihara with brilliantly creative costumes by Willa Kim…the Dream Team that brought you The Tempest
Note: Shinju contains partial nudity.
Nahat’s signature piece, Quicksilver, is choreographed to Felix Mendelssohn’s Piano Concerto No. 1 in G minor, Opus 25. This youthful, joyous work with its driving force delivers a powerhouse of a finale.
