In this all-premiere show, Pacific Northwest Ballet introduces Seattle audiences to a pair of hot-ticket European choreographers and a second commission from dance-fusion pioneer Victor Quijada (Suspension of Disbelief
). In what the Dominion Post
calls "A dazzling work that succeeds in making Bach's Concerto No 1 in D minor sing ... the sheer joy of movement," British choreographer David Dawson's A Million Kisses to My Skin
is his tribute to the complete bliss dancers sometimes experience in their work. Annabelle Lopez Ochoa's poignant Cylindrical Shadows
extends the scope of an earlier piece she created in homage to the unexpected death of a close friend, a reflection on the emotions caused by instantaneous loss. Victor Quijada, founder of RUBBERBANDance Group, combines his street-dancing roots with modern dance, classic and contemporary ballet, and a host of other influences to forge an original work that promises a living demonstration of his essential goal: "to make a new dance language, one that can tell new stories."
