    Shadows Fleeting

     “Dramatic chills thrill in edgy ballet”  The Boston Herald
    “…the antithesis of stuffy, over polished dance…The intimacy lends Mateo’s dynamic choreography a raw power that is compulsively watchable…”
    Best of Boston Dance Performance 2011, Boston magazine   New England’s celebrated dance-maker, Jose Mateo, opens the Company’s remarkable 28th Season with a concert of stunning original ballets. Peer into Mateo’s dark side with two of his most haunting and complex works and a highly anticipated world premiere. Shadows Fleeting features Mateo's spellbinding, Covens (premiered 2006) set to James MacMillan’s Symphony #3. This ballet thriller is a haunting tale about love and deception amidst the hysteria of a witch-hunt. Dark Profiles (2001) explores the range of emotional intensity in Beethoven’s Fugue in B Flat. The ballet reveals the secrets of a tormented woman whose insistence on the truth of her own reality creates tension with the object of her lustful desire. Shadows Fleeting offers a unique theater experience with an extraordinary close-up view of the dancers, reserved cabaret-style seating and cocktails during the show. The glorious Sanctuary Theatre is home to Jose Mateo Ballet Theatre and hailed as one of the area’s most spectacular performance spaces.
