Press Alert: The Backstage Beat’s Glowing Review for MAYhem!
Click here to read The Backstage Beat's review of MAYhem: All Premieres!
"Your mind will be changed by this one. You didn’t think desert plants were great inspiration for dance? You were clearly wrong! Ekman has found inspiration everywhere: from the yoga practices of Tibetan monks, to potted succulents, to the lighting and set pieces. It took a while for the audience to warm up, but soon they were laughing and cheering. The movement seems simple, but there are a lot of bodies, and the total result is ultimately complex. The dancers are having a marvelous time, and their enthusiasm is contagious. It’s another ballet that is alone worth the price of admission. This evening of dance is a bargain!"
MAYhem was the final program of the 2014-15 Season, but you can still catch dance this summer with Atlanta Ballet's Wabi Sabi. Click here for a list of our upcoming Wabi Sabi performances around the city that take dance off the stage and into the community!
