CHICAGO: The Joffrey Ballet presents "Millennials"
The Joffrey Ballet
The Joffrey Ballet’s Millennials program features fresh, vibrant and innovative choreography for the 21st century. Following the success of the Joffrey premiere of his Swan Lake, and on the heels of his Tony Award for Best Choreography for the Broadway hit, An American in Paris, Christopher Wheeldon returns with the Chicago Premiere of Fool’s Paradise. Annabelle Lopez Ochoa, a rising star female choreographer with a fierce improvisational talent, has created a powerful abstract piece entitled Mammatus featuring 20 dancers in a series of ensembles and duets set to contemporary composer Michael Gordon’s Weather One. Myles Thatcher, a current dancer with the San Francisco Ballet, creates a world premeire entitled Passengers choreographed to sections of The Four Sections and Triple Quartet by minimalist pioneer Steve Reich.
