Ajkun Ballet Theatre presents the World Premiere of "America" in NYC
Ajkun Ballet Theatre
The fierce creative pace of Leonard Ajkun brings another premiere in New York City
(New York) April 20, 2015 – Leonard Ajkun’s America is always on the move. The dream drives free people from the Pacific to the Atlantic, it provides hope for the hindered, and it strengthens the hearts of the ones contending with adversity.
Finding the perfect and delicate balance between freedom “to” and freedom “from” involves pacing the roads of life that, in return, uncage forceful emotions.
Ajkun’s imagination is triggered by vision of shapes and his profound passion for music. Although his ballets are constructed on great physicality, with tangible challenges for the dancers’ bodies, it is his powerful artistic temperament that connects emotionally with the audience.
The story is incidental to the choreographer, and so are the market demands. His full attention is given to art and dance in its most enjoyable and audacious form.
Fully embracing the concept are his dancers. Most notably, the fiercely athletic Brittany Larrimer and sizzling Momoko Sasada.
