Thursday, February 4-Saturday, February 6 at 8pm
HARVEST is an evening of new and reconstructed works by choreographer Gemma Bond, in collaboration with a select group of ten dancers from American Ballet Theatre and New York Theatre Ballet.
The evening's four works consider the connection between everyday events and the aesthetics of ballet. Bond's choreography is a study in placing ballet in a less traditional setting-without scenery, without mime and gesture, or a set narrative, but through pure dance creates and inspires emotion that connects with the audience.
"Being a dancer with American Ballet Theatre myself, I'm surrounded by beautiful talent that longs to express itself through new and different avenues," writes Bond. "Together we hope to take this great opportunity to explore, create, and bring classical ballet to a new audience in this remarkable location.''
