Atlanta Ballet – Modern Choreographic Voices
Featuring Ohad Naharin’s Minus 16, Alexei Ratmansky’s Seven Sonatas &
Gina Patterson’s Quietly Walking
For 2015, Atlanta Ballet is bringing back three of your favorite innovative works from past seasons.
Ohad Naharin’s Minus 16 takes you on a thrilling exploration of the human experience with music ranging from Israeli folk songs to Dean Martin standards. Minus 16 will have you dancing your seat and maybe even center stage.
Witness an exquisitely challenging classical work with Seven Sonatas from American Ballet Theatre artist in residence Alexei Ratmansky. Breathtakingly impeccable and performed with live piano accompaniment, Seven Sonatas focuses on the playful relationships of three couples.
Quietly Walking is an imaginative melding of classical and contemporary movement by choreographer Gina Patterson. “A lovely restrained piece, it felt like the quiet walk suggested by the title, an opportunity for Zenlike mental stillness and contemplation of beauty” (Creative Loafing Atlanta).
Run time is approximately 2.25 hours, including one 20-minute intermission.
Program subject to change.
