Ballet 5:8

Ballet 5:8's Fall Program is made up of three dynamic works that, though diverse, converge on a relatable theme: being human. 

The program’s first work is a world premiere by New York choreographer and Chicago native Preston Miller. And Mercy explores concepts of judgment, grace and mercy in an athletic, contemporary style that engages the eye in continuous, connected movement emerging seamlessly from the music.

The program’s second premiere, Mi Familia, is a flamenco-styled ballet is drawn from Artistic Director Julianna Slager’s own experiences growing up in a multi-racial family. The work celebrates the beauty of family and relationships that transcends racial and cultural differences.

Finally, audience favorite The Four Seasons of the Soul will round out the program with its intense, poignant reflection on life expressed through the four seasons of nature. The neoclassical work is a beautiful, unforgettable experience that challenges us to see life through the lens of the bigger picture.
