In this triple bill program, experience works that showcase the artistic depth and technical virtuosity of Houston Ballet dancers. Stanton Welch’s Velocity, created for The Australian Ballet in 2003, is a study in speed, characterized by rapid precision. It serves as a compelling and dynamic showcase of the athleticism of the company dancers.

 

The return of Aszure Barton’s powerful Come In, crafted for her friend and mentor Mikhail Baryshnikov in 2006, highlights the strength of 13 male dancers. Barton’s eclectic works have graced countless international stages worldwide.
