BalletX is returning to the Vail Dance Festival this August as Company-In-Residence. Each year the Vail Dance Festival brings together a dazzling array of the world’s greatest dancers for two incredible weeks of collaboration and performance, and we are grateful and honored to be part of it. If you have ever dreamed of making the trip or have plans to be in the area, consider joining us in a special performance of Matthew Neenan’s Sunset, o639 Hours, Dancing in the Park, and Now: Premieres.
BALLETX: SUNSET, o639 HOURS
Aug 2, 7:30pm
Following a sold-out performance at the 2015 Festival, Sunset, o639 Hours returns to Vail for one night only. This critically acclaimed story ballet transports audiences through a poignant narrative of loss, longing, and resolution, through extraordinary choreography by Matthew Neenan, and music performed live onstage by a cabaret-style band (composed by Rosie Langabeer, Andrew Mars & The Sunset Club).
DANCING IN THE PARK: BALLETX
Aug 5, 5:30pm
The Festival welcomes Company-In-Residence BalletX to Avon for a free, family-friendly show on the outdoor stage of the Avon Performance Pavilion at Nottingham Park.
Aug 9, 7:30pm
On closing night, the Festival will present an entire evening of new works choreographed by a selection of today’s most inspiring creative voices including Lil Buck with Lauren Lovette, Michelle Dorrance, Justin Peck, Tiler Peck, Jamar Roberts, Cleo Parker Robinson, and James Whiteside, with new music composed by Christina Courtin, Rhiannon Giddens, Caroline Shaw, and Tyshawn Sorey, performed by musicians including Quartet-In-Residence Brooklyn Rider.
