Since striking up the Innovations series five years ago, Ballet West has capped each of its characteristically classical seasons with an all-out expo of new works from contemporary choreographers. Set to the dark fury of Shostakovich, Descent, by principal Michael Bearden, presents a true story of the Russian Revolution, expanded to a 45-minute performance from the 10-minute version that premiered in 2010. Chu-San Goh Award winner Susan Shields's evocative Grand Synthesis returns, gracefully skipping between tranquil and frantic tempos like an indecisive morning-radio DJ. Katherine Boyle of the Washington Post said of Shields that her style "fuses formal balletic technique with modern shapes and movement"; her work draws heavily upon training from the Joffrey Ballet School in New York and Wolf Trap Elementary School in Vienna.
