Human Landscapes

Overview

Forgotten Land

Choreography: Jirí Kylián
Music: Benjamin Britten
Stirring and beautiful, Forgotten Land was inspired by a painting of women on a beach by the Norwegian expressionist Edvard Munch. The sea, with its giant waves, is a metaphor for constant motion; for erosion and renewal. Set to the music of Benjamin Britten, we celebrate the 100th anniversary of his birth.

“Lusciously fluid”

Pretty BALLET

Choreography: James Kudelka
Music: Bohuslav Martinu˚
With Pretty BALLET, James Kudelka “tends to the muse,” creating a wistful homage to the art of ballet: conscious of lost dreams, but compelled to carry on.

“Thrilling, ingeniously designed, devilishly rebellious and brash in its showmanship”
– Chicago Tribune

 

The Green Table

Choreography: Kurt Jooss
Music: Frederick Cohen
Created in the shell-shocked aftermath of World War I, The Green Table was a ground-breaking anti-war ballet. Today, celebrating its 80th anniversary, it stands as a vibrant masterpiece of German Expressionism, demonstrating the futility of war and the poignant price paid by its victims.

“A stunning assault of drama and unsentimental truth”
– Chicago Tribune
