About the performance:
Under the direction of Peter Boal, one of America’s greatest ballet companies makes a rare East Coast appearance. Their exciting program includes British choreographer David Dawson’s exuberant A Million Kisses to My Skin and Nacho Duato’s Rassemblement, inspired by and danced to the music of Haitian singer Toto Bissainthe. The remarkable Twyla Tharp’s Scottish-inspired Brief Fling, originally created for American Ballet Theatre, “openly contrasts the ballet vocabulary…with her own spiraling, slouching modern-dance idiom” (The New York Times).
