THE TIMES ARE RACING

February 12-23, 2020

 

Commedia

Choreography:  © Christopher Wheeldon | Music:  Igor Stravinsky

Taking inspiration from Stravinsky's Pulcinella Suite, Wheeldon's ballet is an "elegant piece, beautifully jointed and crafted..." (The Guaridan).

 

Mono Lisa

Choreography:  Itzik Galili | Music:  Thomas Höfs

Wiggling hips. Break-neck twists and turns. Feats of grand athleticism. Galili's incredible spin on the classical pas de deux evokes a daring game of cat and mouse-a fierce, dynamic dance of seduction.

Chicago Premiere

 

Bliss!

Choreography:  Stephanie Martinez | Music:  Igor Stravinsky

Award-winning, Chicago-based choreographer Martinez shares her newest work. Bliss! is set to Dumbarton Oaks Concerto, one of only two chamber concertos composed by Stravinsky.

 

The Sofa

Choreography:  Itzik Galili  | Music:  Tom Waits

Described as a "broad, physical comedy" (Critical Dance)The Sofa takes shape as a love triangle run amok. Music by Grammy Award-winner Waits sets the tone for this comical take on gender, sexuality and relationships.

Chicago Premiere

 

The Times Are Racing

Choreography:  Justin Peck | Music:  Dan Deacon

Tony® Award-winning Peck brings one of his most "arresting and complex" (The New York Times) works. A "sneaker ballet," The Times Are Racing channels the power of protest and the process for creating change.
