Tango and Drum Roll by Li Yaming

Jardin Anime by Marius Petipa
Ben Stevenson (OBE) choreographed his gold medal winning pas de deux, End of Time, as a meditation on ideas of global devastation. Set to Sergei Rachmaninov, the critically acclaimed choreographer created this work to reflect the tension and beauty within a relationship when nothing else remains (Company Premiere). Rhonda Cooper takes a light hearted look at the sinners and the saints of a New Orleans Mardi Gras. Her work, Stop! Thief! is set to the iconic Nina Simone and plays with ideas of repentance and forgiveness (World Premiere). Brazilian choreographer Renata Pacheco offers an all female ensemble of strength and endurance in Monasterio, with music from the renowned Portuguese collective Madredus. Alice Gerbrecht brings a piece inspired in part by playwright Irwin Shaw. Quiet City, choreographed to incidental music from Shaws play by the great American composer Aaron Copeland, challenges the dancers through its complex musicality and emotional risk, bringing the dancers closer together (World Premiere). Li Yaming, Coastal City Ballets Artistic Director offers two works: Tango, set to Astor Piazzolla, and Drum Roll, a powerful all-male work displaying synchronicity and balletic skill (Company Premieres). And from the classical ballet canon Marius Petipas Jardin Anime from Le Corsaire (Act II), scored by Leo Delibes and Ludwig Minkus, shows the mastery of one classical ballets most elegant excerpts (Company Premiere).
