Celebrate ten seasons of innovative storytelling and breathtaking dance with Ballet 5:8.
In honor of our 10th Anniversary, we will bring several audience favorite works from the Ballet 5:8 archives back to the stage for special encore celebrations! Drawing inspiration from cultural luminaries such as Makoto Fujimura, Gwendolyn Brooks and C.S. Lewis, Slager's ballets speak to the present moment with incisive wit and clarity. With music ranging from Vivaldi to Gorecke to Rachmaninoff, this evening of ballet will inspire and delight both the seasoned balletomane and the first time audience member.
Enjoy a stunning performance featuring repertoire from the past nine seasons of Ballet 5:8, and a world premiere of Julianna Rubio Slager’s newest work, Toda Raba.
