“Balanchine, Wheeldon and Tharp. They are three very different styles of work. You get three very different and very interesting views of the company,” says artistic director Roy Kaiser.
Kaiser also says the ballets takes the audience on a magical ride, from the presentational performance of George Balanchine’s “Square Dance” to Christopher Wheeldon’s more intimate piece, “After the Rain,” and then on to Twyla Sharp’s “Push Comes to Shove.”
Kaiser says the performances are contagious.
“We all have this desire to move, and if they perform with the energy and excitement that they always do, it does make the audience sit up and want to move themselves,” Kaiser explains.
