Oceánica Ballet: Blue Skies
July 17 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
One event on July 17, 2021 at 7:00 pm
Oceánica Ballet is proud to present its inaugural production, Blue Skies.
Five choreographers explore themes of resilience, hope, and joy in a dynamic showcase of world premieres presented in-person. Constanza Murphy aims to create a moment of simple beauty danced deftly by an ensemble of men in her ballet “Rachmaninoff Suite.” Jessica Woodman explores dichotomies of slow vs fast, soft vs sharp, and precision vs flow in pas de deux and ensemble forms. Matthew Ebert’s “Raining Glass” imagines a torrential downpour which resembles shards of glass. Robert Burns Lowman juxtaposes moments of community and meditation in “Lark Ascending.” Edgar Lepe’s “Swingin’” finds parallels between WWII-era big band music and our current need for hope and vivacity in the face of uncertainty.
Blue Skies will be performed in-person:
Sat, Jul 17, 3pm and 7pm, Bay Area Ballet Conservatory’s Studio One
Sun, Jul 18, 12pm and 3pm, Hiller Aviation Museum’s atrium
