  • Performance History World Premiere

The world premiere of Under the Trees' Voices will stream below on April 30 at 7:00 PM CDT. Blanc’s Under the Trees' Voices features 15 Joffrey artists dancing to Symphony No. 2 by Italian composer Ezio Bosso. The performance channels the power of community in the age of social distancing. Much of the inspiration behind the choreography is a result of Blanc’s feelings during the Spring of 2020, when he noticed the nuances of people’s moods as the weather began to improve and pandemic restrictions eased. It was during this time that Blanc was walking along Lake Michigan in Chicago while listening to Bosso’s Symphony No. 2 that he felt inspired to create Under the Trees’ Watch below for a live look at the creation of Under the Trees’ Voices, the new world premiere from Joffrey Rehearsal Director and choreographer Nicolas Blanc for The Joffrey Ballet. The stream is available through April 22.
