It’s a global vision that resulted in an otherworldly show.
The Vernon and District Performing Arts Centre Society presents the Aspen Santa Fe Ballet Tuesday, Nov. 14 at 7:30 p.m.
“The Aspen Santa Fe Ballet’s threefold vision — top global choreographers, distractive groundbreaking repertoire, and virtuoso dancers – is brought to life as three leading dance-makers from Spain and Finland present choreography that showcases the technique and interpretive skill of the talented eleven-person ensemble,” said the society’s audience development officer, Keyanna Burgher. “They will bring three pieces to the stage: 1st Flash, Silent Ghost and Huma Rojo.”
Choreographed by Jorma Elo, 1st Flash brings powerful movements and expert ensemble work together to create a dramatic visual story. Silent Ghost, choreographed by Alejandro Cerrudo, is a beautiful, quiet piece that spans the stage with grace and spectacle. And with a spark of humor and physical comedy, Huma Rojo, choreographed by Cayetano Soto, pairs head-to-toe red costuming with lively Latin music.
Hailing from two home-bases, the Rocky Mountains of Aspen and the Southwestern heat of Santa Fe, the Aspen Santa Fe Ballet has operated for two decades and influenced dance across the American West.
