Ballet des Amériques in the Fast Forward dance series at Dixon Place
Ballet des Amériques
Fast Forward - Curated by Sangeeta Yesley
Established in 2011, Ballet des Amériques - the "Ballet of the Americas" - is a company of classically trained dancers performing works of French-American director and choreographer Carole Alexis. Drawing on multifarious cultural traditions, these works transcend the established categories of classical, modern and contemporary dance in surprising and captivating ways. Attracting ballet aficionados and fans of modern and other dance forms alike, the company is poised to enchant ever-growing audiences.
Fast Forward is a new dance series curated by Sangeeta Yesley at Dixon Place. Each evening presents works of two choreographers around a theme. The theme of the evening performance on Tuesday, October 18, is "A Point of View," where Carole Alexis will present her latest work "Of Flowers and Tears," a choreographic cycle set to music by Caribbean Jazz musician Mario Canonge.
