Drawing inspiration from cultural luminaries such as Makoto Fujimura, Gwendolyn Brooks and C.S. Lewis, Slager's ballets speak to the present moment with incisive wit and clarity. With music ranging from Vivaldi to Gorecke to Rachmaninoff, this evening of ballet will inspire and delight both the seasoned balletomane and the first time audience member.
From the archives of a decade of innovative storytelling and breathtaking dance, Ballet 5:8 brings to the stage beloved classics and groundbreaking new work. 10FOLD’s lineup is composed of eight works by Artistic Director Julianna Rubio Slager.
