Called "the most forward-looking American ballet company on the continent" (Contra Costa Times), San Francisco Ballet rarely disappoints in its selection and performance of innovative, genre-defining works. For this exciting triple bill, SF Ballet presents the world premiere of Hummingbird by Liam Scarlett, a contemporary ballet wunderkind who, at only 26, was recently appointed artist-in-residence at The Royal Ballet. The program also includes the return of Helgi Tomasson's masterful The Fifth Season and Serge Lifar's elegant Suite en Blanc, a brilliant showcase of French neoclassicism featuring "a parade of stunning individual and Hollywood-big corps performances" (San Jose Mercury News).

Beautiful piece, interwoven with the magic of movement, words, sound and sets. I loved the sets, denoting water, with leaves, translucent sculpture. The dancing/movement superb. All of the components were wonderfully magically integrated. And the fact that we, the audience, was an integral part of the performance, was especially nice.
I moved, walked, sat, knelt, in various places, to experience the dancers, set, and story from different viewpoints. That was a terrific component of the evening.
I would definitely recommend Liss Fain Dance, "The Water Is Clear and Still", be seen by anyone interested in movement, sculpture, sound, storytelling, all wonderfully woven together.

About the Ticket Supplier: Liss Fain DanceVisceral. Emotional. Compelling. Liss Fain Dance is renowned for its innovative blending of fast-paced modern dance with the clarity and vertical lift of ballet. Unlike a mixed repertory company, Liss Fain's concerts have a single construct as a unifying factor in all the evening's pieces. Through movement that is technically and structurally precise and through careful juxtaposition of individuals and groups, Ms. Fain creates the forcefulness and complexity of an emotional environment. Exemplifying the style of European contemporary dance, her work incorporates ballet's kinetic precision with the flow and movement experimentation of modern dance.
Since it's founding in 1988, Liss Fain Dance has produced vibrant, abstract pieces that are at the forefront of new approaches to integrated collaborative performances. The nine member, San Francisco based contemporary dance company performs dances that are about "shape, expression, flow and musicality."
