BalletX Winter Series 2017
BalletX welcomes its first commission from world-renowned Norwegian choreographer and storyteller Jo Strmgren, whose work has been performed by companies in over 45 countries, including Vienna State Opera Ballet, Royal Danish Ballet, Royal Swedish Ballet, and Ballett Nrnberg. Delving into the Smithsonian Archives, Strmgrens world premiere will take inspiration from traditional American music, delivered with his signature absurd humor (Critical Dance). BalletX is thrilled to premiere a new work by former company dancer R. Colby Damon, whose choreography has been featured by Opera Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Ballet II, and Brazils Vivadana Festival. Winter Series 2017 also marks the East Coast Premiere of Matthew Neenans Credo, which made its debut at the 2016 Vail International Dance Festival.
