    Presented by at Sanctuary Theatre

    April 29 - May 16, 2010



    “…a bold, in-your-face moment that breaks new ground for Mateo.” The Boston Globe “… a ballet venue unlike any other in town. It’s a rush to be so close to the dancers that you can practically touch them.” The Improper Bostonian Jose Mateo Ballet Theatre closes its 24th season with a bang with the season finale, Uncontainable. One revival work, one world premiere and endless inspiration by New England’s most celebrated dance-maker, Jose Mateo. Enjoy a new way to experience ballet with cabaret-style seating, close-up view of the dancers, and cocktails during the show. Uncontainable feature’s Mateo’s fast-paced and dynamic Fearless Symmetries, awarded The Boston Globe’s Top Ten in Dance. Set to John Adams’ Fearful Symmetries, a young woman is swept by the appeal of contemporary urban life and then overwhelmed by its very unpredictable forces. Uncontainable also includes a world premiere set to Alfred Schnittke’s Concerto for Piano and Strings, composed in 1979. Jose Mateo Ballet Theatre’s Uncontainable offers Boston audiences the only opportunity to see new classical ballet. Each work is customized for its glorious 5,000 square foot Sanctuary Theatre in Harvard Square for an intimate experience unlike any other in dance performance.
