Return to Fall

Return to Fall

September 14-16, 2018 Return to Fall

  • Return to a Strange Land Choreography by Jiří Kylián
  • World Premiere Choreography by Ricardo Amarante
  • Vertigo Choreography by Mauro Bigonzetti, Performed by Czech National Ballet

Atlanta Ballet returns with a fall lineup that includes one of dance visionary Jiří Kylián’s signature celebrations of dancers’ physical limits, Return to a Strange Land. Sinewy forms entwine in intimate embraces before spiraling across the stage in graceful lifts. They are physical bodies in space detached from place and time – travelers in a strange land. They move as counterpoints, exploring the limits of centrifugal force and, seemingly, gravity.

Rising Brazilian choreographer Ricardo Amarante, recognized for his emotionally-charged, purely neoclassical style, complements the program with a world premiere.

Atlanta Ballet will also welcome a special performance by Czech National ballet of Vertigo, a pas de deux by Mauro Bigonzetti.
