As a new works company, we are always creating, experimenting, learning, and growing. This ongoing creative process enables us to continuously explore different ideas and present pieces by a variety of artists.
Each year, Texture Contemporary Ballet creates and presents more new work than most other companies across the country. We are very proud to offer our audience something that is new and fresh at every performance.
For this performance of Momentum, Texture will premiere two new works by Artistic Director Alan Obuzor. The first new work,Flow, is set to the music of Ludovico Einaudi, Ezio Bosso, and Florian Christl. This dynamic and striking work explores the ebb, the flow, the beauty of movement, bodies, and music.
The second new work,B.E.P., is set to music of the Black Eyed Peas, who are known for their many top musical hits in the genres of hip-hop, dance, and pop music.B.E.P.is a high energy piece which will feature Texture dancers' versatility, passion, and charisma. This program will also bring a return of some past Texture favorites:Another Story, Ding,andHollowed,which were all co-choreographed by Alan Obuzor and Kelsey Bartman, andStills From Italy, which Kelsey originally choreographed in 2011. Join us to experience the energy and power of dynamic movement by our incredible artists! Momentum is on stage September 23-25!
