Essence
March 1–2, 2019, The Cowles Center

Essence is a diverse mixed program of new original works and popular favorites from its repertoire.

 

The program features the World Premiere of a new work, Red, an all-female piece inspired by historical events such as the rise of Nazism, fictional works such as The Handmaid’s Tale and certain contemporary events. Red delves into the essence of women’s individual and group responses, resistance and/or conformity to dystopian, totalitarian, and societal suppression.

 

Also new is The Firebird: Essence of Being, an original work to excerpts from Stravinsky’s music The Firebird Suite, that explores the dynamics—strife and resolution—between diverse cultures and people.  Taking two of the original ballet’s iconic characters, a human and a mystical creature, but reimagining their interaction outside the original storyline, they serve as a metaphor for cross cultural and racial relationships in a more intriguing and intimate way.

 

Returning to Cowles are two TCB favorites: Victor Frankenstein, its acclaimed original contemporary work inspired by Mary Shelly’s gothic novel, Frankenstein, which is an introspective exploration of the thematic elements of the book shown in themed “chapters” rather than as a linear story ballet, and excerpts from TCB’s popular Classicana, an original neoclassical work to different Beethoven pieces that showcases the artistry, technique, musicality and precision that are the essence of quality classical ballet.

 

This evening of relevant and approachable dance highlights TCB’s artistic vision and innovation, and its dancers’ versatility and talent. Essence promises a meaningful and entertaining experience for all—long-term ballet enthusiasts, those new to ballet, and fans of more contemporary dance alike.
