Explore Balletic Boundaries with Three Vanguard Dancemakers

A world premiere from Jamar Roberts opens this program of works from dancemakers at the forefront of contemporary choreography. Resident Choreographer at Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, Roberts returns to NYCB for his first main stage work following the Fall 2020 dance-on-film premiere of Water Rite, employing selections for orchestra and jazz quartet from saxophonist and composer Wayne Shorter’s album Emanon for his new choreography. It is joined by Pam Tanowitz’s first dance for the Company, Bartók Ballet, an ensemble piece fusing neoclassical choreography with modern and folk steps. The program concludes with Kyle Abraham’s genre-bending work for the 2018 Fall Gala, The Runaway, with a score that combines classical pieces by contemporary composer Nico Muhly with music by James Blake, Jay-Z, and Kanye West, among others.
