To open the season, Artistic Director Peter Boal premieres two notable works on his annual mixed bill of selections. Audiences held spellbound by its debut will applaud Petite Mort's return, partnered by a second addition from Jiri Kylian's renowned Black and White series. Wickedly funny, Sechs Tänze (Six Dances) utilizes bubbles, powdered wigs, and rolling ball gowns to create Mozartian mayhem within a tour de force of musicality and expression. Also new to PNB, Jerome Robbins' Glass Pieces further demonstrates the renowned choreographer's matchless intuition for group dynamics via the streaming pedestrian pathways formed by dozens of lycra-clad dancers. Set to three compositions by Phillip Glass, Robbins's ensembles create poetry from repetition, making each alteration in vocabulary and character ingeniously effective. Rounding out this abundantly textured program is audience-favorite Jardí Tancat, Nacho Duato’s powerful signature work danced to traditional Catalonian songs.
