American Repertory Ballet is pleased to make a return engagement on Saturday, October 8 at 3:00 p.m., at The Theatre at Raritan Valley Community College, Branchburg, NJ, presenting Fall Favorites, a program of mixed repertoire.

The Company, fresh off its successful 2015–2016 tour, is proud to present a three-part performance, which includes works from ARB Artistic Director Douglas Martin and Resident Choreographer Mary Barton. The afternoon’s performance includes:  


Shades of Time

Choreography: Resident Choreographer Mary Barton

Music: Edward Elgar

Shades of Time is Barton’s moving visual work that evokes the passing of time, light and moods of the day. 


Ephemeral Possessions

Choreography: Artistic Director Douglas Martin

Music: Samuel Barber

Ephemeral Possessions is Martin’s compilation of movements captured from memory to reflect vanishing experiences we all encounter. 


Rite of Spring

Choreography: Artistic Director Douglas Martin

Music: Igor Stravinsky

Lastly, Rite of Spring, another ballet by Martin, was inspired by revolutionary works that the legendary Ballets Russes brought to America in the early 20th century, shows how the relationships of men and women transcend time.


American Repertory Ballet’s mission is to bring the joy, beauty, artistry and discipline of classical and contemporary dance to New Jersey and beyond through artistic and educational programs, presented by a financially responsible organization.
