Across the Pond
April 24-May 5 2018
Choreographer: Wayne McGregor
Music: Max Richter
Performed to Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons, reimagined by experimental composer Richter, Kairos, an ancient Greek word denoting ‘weather,’ combines McGregor’s signature physicality with the sleek designs of award-winning, London-based artist Idris Khan. Together, this stunning performance is a feast for the ears and eyes.
Choreographer: Frederick Ashton
Music: César Franck
Considered one of Ashton’s finest works, this ethereal ballet is a true dance classic. Ashton evokes the mystical splendor of the seasons through exquisite movement, embodying everything from the calming stillness of winter to the colorful resurgence of spring and summer.
Choreographer: Andrea Walker
Known for his work with international sensations Coldplay and Lady Gaga, the Founder and Artistic Director of London’s 201 Dance Company brings his striking vision stateside with an exclusive new work for the Joffrey.
