Press Alert: ArtsATL Previews MAYhem and Interviews John McFall
Click here to read the ArtsATL preview of MAYhem: Kissed. The article also includes an interview with Artistic Director John McFall, who reflects on his favorite moments from the past 21 years at Atlanta Ballet. He officially retires at the end of the 2015|16 Season on June 1, 2016.
"'Nowness' is the way dancer Tara Lee describes the spirit of innovation that’s filled Atlanta Ballet studios under John McFall’s artistic leadership. That heightened sense of being in the moment is a natural theme for MAYhem: Kissed, the company’s closing production of McFall’s 21st and final season. It will be a breathtaking farewell, expressed through three works spanning from Gustavo Ramírez Sansano’s lush and playfully resonant El Beso (The Kiss) to Andrea Miller’s world premiere of Push to a repeat performance of Yuri Possokhov’s Classical Symphony, a fast-paced tribute to the danse d’ecole."
Join Atlanta Ballet in honoring John McFall at the last show of his storied tenure with Atlanta Ballet, MAYhem: Kissed!
