Tsai Hsi Hung (Choreographic Fellow), Nicole Caruana, Tommie-Waheed Evans, Caili Quan

Limited Seating Available – Tickets On Sale in February

Join BalletX at the beautiful Glen Foerd Mansion for an intimate performance featuring the world premiere of Choreographic Fellow Tsai Hsi Hung’s new work, as well as three new ballets by Incubator artists Nicole Caruana, Tommie-Waheed Evans, and Caili Quan. Guests are encouraged to come early for impromptu musical performances by surprise guests and tours of the scenic historic site.

Tsai Hsi Hung, a Taiwanese choreographer and founder of Queens Ballet Center/QBC Company in New York, is BalletX’s 2022 Choreographic Fellow. Returning after the success of her BalletX Beyond short film Two X Two, Tsai Hsi’s new work draws inspiration from her series of self-portrait paintings to explore the different faces of unconventional beauty.

Nicole Caruana, BalletX’s 2020 Choreographic Fellow, creates a new work inspired by the transcendent voice of opera singer and activist Marian Anderson.

Tommie-Waheed Evans is a 2021 Guggenheim Fellow and queer black dance maker who returns to BalletX with a premiere inspired by the impact of the church and spiritual music on his life and work.

Caili Quan danced with BalletX for seven years before retiring in 2021 to launch her choreographic career. Caili is a Creative Associate at The Juilliard School, and her work has been featured at the Vail Dance Festival.
