WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Classical ballet meets contemporary cool as Ballet Memphis makes its Joyce debut. The line-up includes two separate programs created expressly for the company to underscore its connection to community and Southern culture. Program A: Tuesday, April 3 at 7:30pm Thursday, April 5 at 8:00pm Saturday, April 7 at 8:00pm Sunday, April 8 at 2:00pm The Naughty Boy Choreography: Trey McIntyre; Music: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart This work brings a streak of passion and the flight of Cupid's arrow heading for its mark. A Curtain of Green Choreography: Julia Adam A retelling through movement of the historically significant and distinctly Southern short story about loss and rebirth by Eudora Welty. Mercurial Balance Choreography: Thaddeus Davis Music: Acoustica (after Aphex Twin), Mista Ian and Yo Gotti Spoken Word Poetry: J'malo Torriel and Ed Torriel Davis has built a tour de force that redefines the process of collaboration between choreography, music and the spoken word while reflecting the urban hip-hop impulse. Program B: Wednesday, April 4 at 7:30pm Friday, April 6 at 8:00pm Saturday, April 7 at 2:00pm The Awakening Choreography: Julia Adam; Music: Frederic Chopin Based on the novel by Kate Chopin, The Awakening offers a stunning interpretation of a beautiful-but-tragic feminist story about a woman's struggle in a repressed society. New work to premiere March 2007 Choreography: Trey McIntyre; Music: Roy Orbison Ballet Memphis' resident choreographer creates a ballet inspired by philanthropy and community, based on a complex and layered piece of sculpture from the Pitt and Barbara Hyde collection, set to the music of the "opera" singer of country music, Roy Orbison. Mercurial Balance Choreography: Thaddeus Davis Music: Acoustica (after Aphex Twin), Mista Ian and Yo Gotti Spoken Word Poetry: J'malo Torriel and Ed Torriel Davis has built a tour de force that redefines the process of collaboration between choreography, music and the spoken word while reflecting the urban hip-hop impulse.
