Supported by Turner
Featuring Boiling Point by Darrell Grand Moultrie, the world premiere of Playground by Douglas Lee & Home in 7 by choreographer Amy Seiwert, spoken word artist Marc Bamuthi Joseph, and composer/musician Daniel Bernard Roumain (DBR)
Created just for Atlanta Ballet, 20|20 is a visionary mash-up of cultures and styles reflective of the vibrant diversity of our city. Take a look at the undeniable talent of Atlanta’s own dynamic and innovative Company as it carves out a place on the leading edge of dance!
Boiling Point is a fast-paced work that heats up the stage as dancers push their bodies to their limits and showcase the searing, demanding athleticism of dance. Since creating this thrilling tableau of sinewy power, Darrell Grand Moultrie has choreographed for megastar Beyoncé and Tony Award-winning director Diane Paulus.
Witness the world premiere of Playground from acclaimed British choreographer Douglas Lee whose inspiring and kinetic works have been performed by prestigious companies around the world, including New York City Ballet, Nederlands Dans Theater 2, and now Atlanta Ballet.
Home in 7 is an emotionally charged exploration of Atlanta featuring seven scenes touching on darker stories of the past to southern belles to baseball. Spoken word artist Marc Bamuthi Joseph and composer/musician Daniel Bernard Roumain (DBR) accompany the dancers live onstage at all performances.
