Our eleventh season closes out with Reimagine, April 1st-3rd at the New Hazlett Theater!
Texture is continuously exploring new ways to reimagine ballet in the modern world. This show will include a world premiere by Alan Obuzor, featuring excerpts of classical ballets that have been reimagined, rechoreographed, and reinterpreted, with a wider array of movement than what originally existed in classical ballet. This "ballet beyond the rules" piece uses music and elements of choreography from historic classical ballets such as Giselle, Paquita, and The Sleeping Beauty, and combines them with stunning new classical and contemporary choreography.
Kelsey Bartman's newest original work is set to music by Ben Folds and centers on the experience of realizing you are turning to a new chapter, yet feeling joy and fulfillment when looking back on the past. Also on the program is the return of a Texture favorite, Old Skin. This inspiring work is based on the mythical being of the phoenix, and how one can symbolically be reborn multiple times throughout a lifetime.
Join us at Reimagine to enjoy a transformative and inspirational night out!
