PHILADELPHIA: BalletX's Spring Series 2016
BalletX’s 10th Anniversary Retrospective includes excerpts spanning from each year of the company's history. The program features works by some of BalletX's most vital collaborators, including BalletX co-founder Matthew Neenan’s, Frequencies (2005) and The Last Glass (2010), which will remind us why he has risen to acclaim as "one of today's foremost dance poets" (The New York Times).
BalletX will also present a world premiere by Kevin O'Day, renowned choreographer and Artistic Director of Ballett Mannheim. A former dancer with Mikhail Baryshnikov's White Oak Dance Project and Frankfurt Ballet under the direction of William Forsythe, O'Day's unique creative process has been praised by The New York Times as "capturing the spirit of the times in which he lives." His new ballet will feature an original composition by John King, performed live by Curtis Institute of Music alumna Wendy Sutter, hailed as "one of the greatest cellists of the classical stage" (The Wall Street Journal).
