Event Description

Ballet 5:8 invites you to experience a riveting evening of dance featuring two one-act ballets. Julianna Rubio Slager’s world premiere The Space in Between is set on a bus ride between heaven and hell, a story inspired by C. S. Lewis’ novel The Great Divorce. Slager’s Four Seasons of the Soul, a Ballet 5:8 audience favorite, explores how the turning seasons in nature parallel the recurring themes of human life.
