__Choreographed by Christopher Wheeldon

Music by Bohuslav Martinu

An wistful, neo-classical homage to the traditional pas de deux, Christopher Wheeldon’s acclaimed Rush utilizes six couples whose movements ebb and flow throughout the 24-minute piece, rushing forward and soaring back across the stage, as the piece “splatters and explodes symmetry and order” (The DanceReview Times). Though original and postmodern in style, Rush still maintains the essence of traditional ballet.

__Prayer of Touch

__Choreographed by Helen Pickett

Music by Felix Mendelssohn

After bringing the Atlanta Ballet debut of Petal for last season’s Fusion, Helen Pickett is back with a world premiere. Pickett’s ultimate aim is to create an authentic experience that involves the viewer and leads to a shared journey between the dancers and their audience. She believes that “art, after all, is about sharing experiences and inviting people to feel the thrill of movement.” Let yourself be pulled in by the sensations and energy of Prayer of Touch.


Choreographed by Tara Lee

Music by Nickitas Demos

Tara Lee returns with a world premiere after giving us Poem, 16 String and most recently Akava during Wabi Sabi. Best known as a principal dancer in her sixteenth season with Atlanta Ballet, Lee has proven that she is a multi-dimensional and exciting emerging choreographer. Her work bridges the worlds of classical and contemporary dance, resulting in “a pleasurable marriage of tradional and trendy styles” (ArtsATL). Bursting with raw emotion and cinematic in nature, Lee’s choreography captivates.
