Ephemeral Possessions: ARB’s artistic director, Douglas Martin, choreographed this lyrical work, focusing on the form of the ballerinas’ legs while slowly, patiently building an effect that’s at once light and mournful. That’s rather fitting, considering the work is set to Samuel Barber’s airy, iconically heartfelt Adagio for Strings.
Glazunov Variations: American Ballet Theatre’s Kirk Peterson created a work as technical as it is captivating with this dance, set to music from Glazunov’s classical ballet Raymonda. Throughout, archetypical costumes exaggerate every hop, sway, and leap until audiences are mesmerized.
Straight Up With a Twist: Mary Barton, the resident choreographer of ARB, used Kalia Flexer’s contemporary folk music as the heart of this inventive piece. While fiddle and guitar stir up a storm, narrative and neo-classical elements play with classical ballet and Irish step-dancing. Barton says, “There isn’t a specific storyline, but I am hoping each section [of the work] creates a particular mood.”
