spark @ the Spring Mix

What goes into the making of new thematic work?

All three pieces in the Ballet Memphis Spring Mix are original works created for Ballet Memphis dancers. Flyway was commissioned as a part of a three-part series of original work for the River Project, pieces inspired by our proximity to the river. Dew Point was created for an evening of original work entitled Connections: Earth & Sky. Both are fun, innovative examples of how Ballet Memphis creates thematic work. The final new piece by Rafael Ferreras takes a look at global warming and how our precious Earth is getting hotter. 

In this spark! we'll look at how Ballet Memphis approaches thematic work, works with up-and-coming choreographers and strives to be the ultimate storyteller of our times. The event is free for ticket holders, so come early, grab a glass of wine and share your thoughts on emerging art and artists!
