May 12-14, 2023 Significant Others

Relationships and connections are explored in the season finale with two world premieres and a beloved ballet performed across the globe.

A World Premiere
Choreography by Claudia Schreier
Atlanta’s first opportunity to fall in love with Claudia Schreier’s choreography was First Impulse, presented during Atlanta Ballet’s 2018|2019 Season, a bold and colorful introduction to her thoughtful, musical, neoclassical style. Schreier was named as Atlanta Ballet’s choreographer-in-residence in April of 2020 and has since presented two world premières. Pleiades Dances premièred virtually as part of Atlanta Ballet’s 2020|2021 reimagined season, Silver Linings. Schreier’s most recent new work, Fauna, premiered in February of 2022.

Three Preludes
Choreography by Ben Stevenson, O.B.E.
Three Preludes is a romantic pas de deux that tells the story of two dancers who fall in love while working in the studio. Using only a barre, a piano, and two dancers in rehearsal clothes, the three sections of the ballet develop the love story as the movements evolve from low, slow catches to high, soaring lifts, taking the dancers on an emotional journey from light flirtation to intense passion.

Significant Others (World Premiere)
Choreography by Remi Wörtmeyer
What do we mean by “significant other?” It can be a spouse or a romantic partner, but it can also be a collaborator, a sibling, or a parent. In Significant Others, Remi Wörtmeyer sets out to prove that artists achieve their greatest creative potential by inspiring and supporting each other, particularly when bound together by the powerful force of artistic collaboration.
