Don’t miss the groundbreaking 25th Anniversary Season of selected original ballets by New England’s most celebrated dance-maker, Jose Mateo. Get swept away by the compelling pull of Tidal Forces, featuring three hypnotic ballets about an ancient myth, a modern mystical journey, and the alluring rhythms of contemporary life.
In Still Waters (2002), the dramatic swells of Claude Debussy’s Nocturne, Sirénes are reflected in sporadic outbursts of movement and passion in the encounters between the fabled songstresses and their suitors. Presage (2005), set to Polish composer Henryk Gorecki's soaring Symphony #3, is a powerful and visually stunning dance that celebrates the majesty of the human spirit. Over and Over (2009) is set to Symphony #2 by American composer Philip Glass, considered one of the most influential composers of the late-20th century. Over and Over takes us to the all-too-familiar but nameless space where the painfully compacted effects of personal loss and the vastness of repetitious history intersect
