ROBINSON BALLET LIVE 2014 Features:
AlteRED – There are a few times in life when you stand at a precipice of a decision. When you know there will forever be a Before and an After from which everything else will be altered.
Choreography: Terry Lacy.
Music: Orff, Ritenour, Grusin, Ahn Trio
Ruminating, a new work by Stevie Dunham, visualizes the existential nature of thoughts. Life can be hectic at times and it’s hard to organize one’s thoughts – this piece demonstrates the inner workings of a chaotic mind with each dancer representing a different thought or train of thoughts. Set to Bach’s Goldberg Variations, Dunham seeks to organize and make sense of a ruminating mind.
Mozart Madness is a merry mix of music and motion, combining ballet with humor and whimsy to depict the world of dance. Featuring a large cast highlighted in a series of vignettes, Mozart’s Madness is a dance about dance, and the magic, madness and joy of it.
Choreography: Keith Robinson
Music: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Gideon Kremer
