Atlanta Ballet Premiere of Minus 16 by Ohad Naharin, World Premiere of I AM by Gina Patterson andRush by Christopher Wheeldon
Set to music ranging from Dean Martin to traditional Israeli songs, Israeli choreographer Ohad Naharin's Minus 16 is an electrifying work that shows the bold, new directions in the world of contemporary dance. Naharin's compelling choreographic process and inventive, lushly layered movement vocabulary have made him a favorite guest artist with dance companies around the world.
After giving us 2011's Quietly Walking, we are excited that Gina Patterson is back creating another world premiere in the Atlanta Ballet studios. Dance Informa Magazine described her last work as a "polished balletic masterpiece," and her new piece will not disappoint.
Christopher Wheeldon's Rush charmed audiences last year while making its Atlanta debut during New Choreographic Voices and returns to the program this season. A wistful, neo-classical homage to the cnoventional pas de deux, Wheeldon's acclaimed "Rush splatters and explodes symmetry and order." (The DanceReview Times)
