Smuin's Dance Series 01

About this Event

Celebrating the legacy of Johnny Cash, former Artistic Director of the National Ballet of Canada James Kudelka explores American determination and human vulnerability in six covers of iconic Cash songs at the Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts. Danced in cowboy boots, Kudelka’s movement combines several popular American country-western dance styles -- line, square, and swing dancing -- with sharp ballet technique and raw emotion in this Company premiere. Michael Smuin’s impassioned "Carmina Burana" celebrates life, lust, and joy -- while also mourning the cruelty of fate. Based on the medieval poems that inspired the classic choral score, Smuin’s intensely physical choreography challenges the dancers’ athleticism and expression, culminating in the powerful “O Fortuna.” Following the success of his "Sinfonietta" last season, former Company member Rex Wheeler creates a mainstage premiere set to selections from jazz legend Dave Brubeck’s lively and innovative albums. Full of surprises both visual and musical, Wheeler’s inventive movement and trademark wit offer a charming and colorful counterpoint to Brubeck’s landmark “Take Five” jazz standard.
