Maninyas

Choreographer: Stanton Welch

Music: Ross Edwards

Contemporary in design and abstract in nature, Maninyas is a powerful, exotic and passionate ballet that explores the sometimes frightening process of revealing oneself layer by layer in a relationship.

Joffrey Premiere

Maninyas Production Sponsors: Bill and Orli Staley

 

The Man in Black

Choreographer: James Kudelka

Music: Johnny Cash

Six of Johnny Cash’s later songs are given visual resonance in a suite of dances for an ensemble of three men and a woman, all in cowboy boots. The choreography riffs off several popular American country-western dance styles. Like the songs that inspired it, The Man in Black is an ode to the human spirit, vulnerable yet resilient.

Joffrey Premiere

 

Tulle

Choreographer: Alexander Ekman

Music: Mikael Karlsson

On the heels of Ekman’s wildly successful Episode 31, we present a second ballet by the young Swedish choreographer. Featuring the full Joffrey company, voice-over commentary and three large onstage LED screens, this is a ballet about ballet. Part homage and part tongue-in-cheek critique, Ekman displays his fresh wit and serious craft.

Joffrey Premiere

Tulle is presented in celebration of Jay Franke's birthday and with support from the National Endowment for the Arts

 

 

*Performances run approximately two (2) hours including two (2) intermissions.


Join Artistic Director Ashley Wheater and select dancers for our Meet the Artists pre-performance discussion series on February 14th, 19th and 21st. For more information, click here.
