Winter 2017 Performances, February 10-19
Jo Stromgren (World Premiere)
R. Colby Damon (World Premiere)
Matthew Neenan Credo (East Coast Premiere)
BalletX welcomes its first commission from world-renowned Norwegian choreographer and storyteller Jo Stromgren, whose work has been performed by companies in over 45 countries, including Vienna State Opera Ballet, Royal Danish Ballet, Royal Swedish Ballet, and Ballett Nürnberg. Delving into the Smithsonian Archives, Stromgren’s world premiere will take inspiration from traditional American music, delivered with his signature “absurd humor” (Critical Dance). BalletX is thrilled to premiere a new work by former dancer R. Colby Damon, whose choreography has been featured by Opera Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Ballet II, and Brazil’s Vivadança Festival, as well as the East Coast Premiere Matthew Neenan's Credo, which made its debut at the 2016 Vail International Dance Festival.
