Overview

DYAD 1929
Choreography: Wayne McGregor  |  Music: Steve Reich  

WORLD PREMIERE: MELODY MENNITE 

THE RITE OF SPRING
Choreography: Stanton Welch AM  |  Music: Igor Stravinsky

 

It takes a world-class company to perform an evening of ballet this diverse. Abstract and fast as lightning, Wayne McGregor’s Dyad 1929 is dedicated to the memory of modern dance legend Merce Cunningham and features her trademark style of dynamic contrasts and intensely physical partnering. The evening will also include a world premiere by Melody Mennite, Houston Ballet Principal Dancer and noted choreographer to watch. Set to the audacious Stravinsky score, Stanton Welch’s The Rite of Spring features art by indigenous Australian painter Rosella Namok and expands on the provocative movement of the original production with themes of sexuality and primitiveness.

Layers of dancing matched the intensity of Stravinsky’s iconic score.
