BalletX Spring Series 2017 @ The Wilma Theater
May 3 @ 8:00 pm – 9:30 pm

BalletX Spring Series 2017

BalletX Spring Series 2017 will feature the U.S. premiere of Cayetano Soto’s Schachmatt, the Philly return of Matthew Neenan’s The Last Glass (2010), and a world premiere by 2017 Choreographic Fellow and PHILADANCO! alum, Tommie-Waheed Evans, entitled In Between the Passing…

Barcelona artist Cayetano Soto’s work has been performed around the world, and praised for its “stunning originality” (The Huffington Post). He is currently Ballet BC’s resident choreographer. In addition to serving as BalletX’s 2017 Choreographic Mentor, Soto brings his work Schachmatt to BalletX. Vancouver’s The Georgia Straight called the work “a nonstop parade of fun… there were flashes of French postwar ballads, cheesy mambos, groovy ’60s dance beats, and even Peter Gunn.” BalletX previously performed Soto’s Malasangre in 2015.

Matthew Neenan has been named “one of the strange originals of American ballet” by The New York Times. The Last Glass premiered on BalletX in 2010, and has become a company favorite with performances recently at the Vail International Dance Festival and Boston’s Institute of Contemporary Art. Featuring the wild street-parade sound of indie band Beirut, the work was called “playfully flirtatious” by The Boston Globe, and noted for its “startling spontaneity and urgency” by The New York Times. Neenan has re-cast all of the BalletX dancers in different roles for the Philly return of the work at Spring Series 2017.

10 Tickets available for this performance.

Don’t Dress for Dinner @ Overbrook Presbyterian Church
May 3 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Don’t Dress for Dinner

Bernard is planning a romantic weekend with his chic Parisian mistress in his charming converted French farmhouse, whilst his wife, Jacqueline, is away. He has arranged for a cordon bleu cook to prepare gourmet delights, and has invited his best friend, Robert, along too to provide the alibi. It’s foolproof; what could possibly go wrong? Well…. suppose Robert turns up not realizing quite why he has been invited. Suppose Robert and Jacqueline are secret lovers, and consequently determined that Jacqueline will NOT leave for the weekend. Suppose the cook has to pretend to be the mistress and the mistress is unable to cook. Suppose everyone’s alibi gets confused with everyone else’s. An evening of hilarious confusion ensues as Bernard and Robert improvise at breakneck speed.

There are 12 tickets available for this performance.

A Tribute to Abbey Lincoln

Born in Chicago in 1930, Abbey Lincoln was raised in rural Michigan and went to a one-room school. Toward the end of her life, Lincoln asked her friend Dee Dee Bridgewater to help keep the Abbey Lincoln songbook alive. On May 20, 2011, at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C., with Dianne Reeves, Bridgewater began to fulfill her promise. This is a remounted version of that performance, redesigned as a touring piece, featuring Dee Dee Bridgewater, Dianne Reeves, and Terri Lyne Carrington.
