BalletX, the sellout hit of the 2017 Princeton Festival, has been at the center of Philadelphia’s contemporary dance scene since its founding in 2005. The company has a repertoire of over 50 world premieres by today’s most celebrated choreographers, and makes regular visits to the most prestigious venues and festivals, such as the Joyce Theatre and Vail. In keeping with the company’s commitment to new work, the Berlind performances will feature several premieres, including works by Trey McIntyre and founding choreographer Matthew Neenan.
- Requiem (Andrew McNichol) is set to portions of Mozart’s Requiem.
- Increasing (Matthew Neenan, co-founder of BalletX) is set to the first movement of Schubert’s Quintet for Strings.
- The Boogeyman (Trey McIntrye) is set to a selection of your favorite 1970’s musical numbers by Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, Gilbert O’Sullivan, Earth, Wind & Fire, and others.
Join Christine Cox (Artistic & Executive Director of BalletX) plus dancers of BalletX for a post-show conversation following the performance on Wednesday, October 17.
