Generations: Influences from the Modern Age

April 20, 2018 - 8pm

Venue Matthews Theatre

OVERVIEW

American Repertory Ballet returns to McCarter Theatre with a triple-bill program of critically-acclaimed works. The program begins with the much-loved There is a Time, a deeply evocative work by José Limón, a true pioneer in modern dance and choreography. Limón’s classic work is based on Ecclesiastes 3 and evokes rich feelings from the audiences as it dances its way through the time-worn words familiar to all of us. Sea Shadow, choreographed by Gerald Arpino, is, as described by The New York Times’ Anna Kisselgoff, “his neo-romantic tale of love between a mortal and a supernatural with contemporary naturalness.” The evening concludes with Rite of Spring, a ballet by Martin, inspired by revolutionary works that the legendary Ballets Russes brought to America in the early 20th century, showing how the relationships of men and women transcend time.
