Event Description

The Joffrey Ballet's Millenials program showcases new works by some of the world's most exciting choreographers. Following the triumphant success of the Joffrey premiere of his reimagined Swan Lake and on the heels of his Tony Award for Best Choreography, the Joffrey will premiere Christopher Wheeldon's Fool's Paradise. Golden lighting captures falling shimmering petals as the dancer's bodies form a series of living sculptures. Annabelle Lopez Ochoa is a rising star female choreographer with a fierce improvisational talent. Dance Magazine says she is "in demand all over the world" and "one of her trademarks is the ability to suggest powerful emotions through abstract movement." Myles Thatcher, a current dacner with the San Francisco Ballet, will premiere a work set to music by Steve Reich. The SF Gate says "there's fearlessness to Thatcher's own eye-catching and dynamic choreography/"
