Atlanta Ballet: Return to Fall
- This event has passed.
Return to a Strange Land
Atlanta Ballet returns with a fall lineup that includes one of dance visionary Jiří Kylián’s signature celebrations of dancers’ physical limits, Return to a Strange Land. Sinewy forms entwine in intimate embraces before spiraling across the stage in graceful lifts. They are physical bodies in space detached from place and time – travelers in a strange land. They move as counterpoints, exploring the limits of centrifugal force and, seemingly, gravity.
This selection of works will include the Grand Pas de Deux from Don Quixote as well as Tschaikovsky Pas de Deux staged by Balanchine* protégé and beloved Atlanta Ballet Artistic Director Emeritus, Robert Barnett.
As part of a new transatlantic partnership with Czech National Ballet, Atlanta Ballet will present a special guest performance this September. Witness the powerful emotional metamorphosis of the artists through sensual, off-kilter partnering in this in this highly stylized work by Mauro Bigonzetti.
