Da’Rius Malone (previously ChiArts, Boston Conservatory at Berkley, JSB dancer in his fourth season), Kerry Parker (previously Pacific Northwest Ballet, Vienna State Opera Ballet, and Ballet of the Dolls), and Michael Walters (previously Netherlands Dance Theater, Frankfurt Ballet, and Lyon Opera) collaborate, create, and craft with our company dancers.
Mesmerizing physical feats and nuanced moments combine to transport you to three bold new places.
Malone builds a texturally-rich environment that thrums with intrigue and vulnerable honesty. Parker’s quiet, powerful Viriditas (working title) is inspired by the women of the 12th and 21st centuries, with devotion manifest in doing (singing, dancing). Walters combines his learned and self-determined savvy from a career in both dance and theater with the utmost potential of each dancer to extract their personal exquisiteness. The three new works, from process to product, all embody agency and voice.
