Three choreographers at the top of their game.
It’s an evening of movement, music, and athleticism that packs a punch, with works by innovative choreographers at the top of their game, plus powerful music performed live. From Tony Award-winner Christopher Wheeldon’s arresting Morphoses to a bold and pulsing new work from powerhouse duo choreographer Yury Yanowsky and singer/songwriter Josh Knowles (performing live), “Game Changers” is bursting with creativity that you never thought possible and sure to challenge your perception of how bold ballet can be.
Tony Award winner Christopher Wheeldon created Morphoses in 2001 following his breakout hit for New York City Ballet Polyphonia. In this elusive contemporary work for four dancers (whose original cast included America’s greatest contemporary ballerina, Wendy Whelan), “change” takes center stage in a piece that hits the extremes of human athleticism and artistry. From a primeval ground-swell of undulating bodies, to intricate—at times chaotic—partnering yielding extraordinary shapes and structures, this work promises to keep you on the edge of your seat and leave you wanting more.
Music: György Ligeti
Choreography: Christopher Wheeldon
Yanowsky’s Same [WORLD PREMIERE]
Powerhouse choreographer Yury Yanowsky is known for upending tradition with daring moves and contemporary concepts designed to shatter expectations. His new work, Same, is a collaborative adaptation of singer/songwriter Josh Knowles’ breakout hit of the same name. With a pulsing beat, powerful visuals, and music sung and performed live by Knowles collaboratively moving with the dancers on stage, Same offers something truly different.
Music: Josh Knowles
Choreography: Yury Yanowsky
