Susan Jaffe *

Weather One* (World Premiere) *

Former American Ballet Theater star Susan Jaffe takes exhilarating classical technique beyond its boundaries with a world premiere set to the music of Weather One, one of the first movements of a string sextet by Michael Gordon that was inspired by the chaotic scheme of weather patterns.

   

Charles Moulton 

Nine Person Precision Ball Passing 

Part dance and part living puzzle, Nine Person Precision Ball Passing is a taut and riveting exploration of the finer points of movement.   

*

Yuri Zhukov *

Railroad Joint 

Zhukov’s Railroad Joint was a hit of Company C’s 2013 Gala performance, and this expanded version will now take its place on the main stage. The superbly athletic dancing is set to a trance-like score that combines electronic music with train sounds.   

*

Charles Anderson *

Boléro 

An audience favorite in 2013, Anderson’s signature movement essay to Ravel’s iconic score completes the program.

An audience favorite in 2013, Polyglot is a clever visual and auditory investigation of the broad spectrum of dance and rhythm, accompanied by everyday sounds and a monologue by actress Amy Walker.   

*

Maurice Causey *

World Premiere 

Maurice Causey’s slick and hard-edged Ominous Rumblings of Discontent was a hit of Company C’s 201 Season. Hailed for his “striking choreographic voice” by Theodore Bale of Arts Journal, the European dance-maker returns with a new ballet created especially for the Company set to a score by Gabriel Prokofiev, grandson of the legendary Russian composer, Sergei Prokofiev.   

*

Charles Moulton *

Patrick Corbin *

Partly Cloudy Suite 

Company C audience favorite Patrick Corbin returns with his dizzyingly athletic Partly Cloudy Suite, set to music by Marsha Groethe.
