Strength, Passion, and Elegance!
This mixed bill performance features three pieces: two company premieres and Stravinsky’s The Firebird. The show opens with (Dis)integrating Self by Laura Malpass. This contemporary ballet work explores identity, community, and relationships as dancers play with finding center, pedestrian movements and what it means to be in partnership. The second piece on the program is a Doctoral Thesis Dance Piece from Ellie Hara pertaining to her doctoral study program through the University of Colorado in Boulder. Listen to Ellie Hara speak about her research and watch as it comes to life with dancers as Ferrous Iron, Cyanide, Carbon, and Sulfur. The final piece on the program is Stravinsky’s The Firebird, one of Russia’s most famous fairy tales full of love and magic. It tells the story of Prince Ivan’s journey to win the heart of his princess and destroy the immortal Koschei all with the help of a magical Firebird.
