Experience three bold works that push the boundaries of classical ballet in The Washington Ballet's Director's Cut. Called a masterpiece when it premiered in 1987, William Forsythe's In the Middle, Somewhat Elevated combines sleek and aggressive choreography with electronic music for a piece that takes ballet into the 21st century. Set to Keith Jarrett's iconic 1975 jazz piano improvisation, Annabelle Lopez Ochoa's PRISM captures the spontaneous feel of the music for a vibrant work that was created for TWB. Thirty-two intricate dance translations bring Bach's famed Goldberg Variations to life in Septime Webre's State of Wonder. This program at The Kennedy Center will also feature a collection of short dance films and a site-specific work in collaboration with Transformer, one of Washington, D.C.'s emerging artist catalysts.
This show’s running time is two hours and 10 minutes, including two 15-minute intermissions.
