Overview

February 15-26, 2012 

In the Middle, Somewhat Elevated
Choreography: William Forsythe
Music: Thom Willems

Joffrey Premiere

Raw and muscular with a throbbing, electronic score, this is classical ballet stretched to its modern limits. With searing hot choreography and aggressive, sensual energy, Forsythe is at his “fierce finest.” - New York Times

 

After the Rain
Choreography: Christopher Wheeldon
Music: Arvo Pärt

Set to achingly beautiful music, this masterpiece displays the push-pull of a passionate relationship, at times tender, at others agonizing. The stunning, sculptural movement, the emotional intensity, and Pärt’s haunting score will leave you breathless.

“A heartstoppingly beautiful creation” - Chicago Tribune

Choreography: Wayne McGregor
Music: Max Richter

U.S. Premiere

Combining emotionally moving dance with the calm indifference of the cyber world, the result is a revolutionary piece of 21st century dance. The poignant choreography of McGregor mixed with the urban design of world-renowned artist Opie and Richter’s mournful industrial score are unforgettable.
