Feb. 21 – 23 – Modern Masters: Taylor & Wheeldon celebrates the choreography of cutting-edge dance makers from the 20th and 21st centuries.
We are honored to present the company premiere of “Airs.” An instant classic, “Airs” has been a hit since it premiered in the late 1970s. Choreography by Paul Taylor, performed to music selections by Handel.
Another company premiere, “Five Movements, Three Repeats” is an excellent example of Christopher Wheeldon’s signature blend of ballet and modern dance. Choreography by Wheeldon, set to music by Max Richter and Dinah Washington.
Joining these two masters on the program will be a new work by our own Lance Hardin and Amy Earnest. Collaborating with composer Michael Schulze, the piece incorporates artificial intelligence. Because the dancers will help create the music while on stage, no two performances will be identical.
Don’t miss this production of company and world premieres in Boulder. No travel to New York required!
Opening Night: $50 – $75 | All other Shows: $20 – $50
