Milwaukee Ballet presents: Winter Series
Milwaukee Ballet presents a forward-looking, edgy experience with three new works created specifically for Milwaukee in â€śWinter Series,â€ť Feb. 13 through 16, 2014 at The Pabst Theater.
The three featured choreographers push boundaries and challenge preconceived notions of what dance can be.
â€śIf youâ€™ve never seen dance performed live,â€ť said Milwaukee Ballet Artistic Director Michael Pink, â€śI enthusiastically invite you to experience this show. The energy of the dancing, the skill of the dancers, the lighting and the intimacy â€¦ they all come together to thrill you.â€ť
â€śWinter Seriesâ€ť will serve-up a premiere work from New York choreographer Gabrielle Lamb, who returns after winning last seasonâ€™s international choreographic competition, â€śGenesis.â€ť
Lamb will be joined by Milwaukee Ballet Choreographer-in-Residence Timothy Oâ€™Donnell, whose leather-clad â€śChildren of the Wallâ€ť brought audiences to their feet last season.
Internationally celebrated Italian choreographer Luca Veggetti makes his Milwaukee debut, offering a meditation on abstract painter Wassily Kandinsky. This world premiere will be presented in partnership with Milwaukee Art Museum.
In contrast to story ballets, the shortened, 20-minute run time of each piece creates a burst of energy and inspiration for the audience to enjoy.
