“Side by Side” Presented by City Ballet of Boston and BoSoma Dance Company
Contemporary dance by two groundbreaking Boston dance companies
Boston Center for the Arts, Wimberly Theatre, 527 Tremont Street, Boston MA 02116
City Ballet of Boston and BoSoma Dance Company present “Side by Side,” an evening of classical and contemporary dance. This double-bill performance, conceived by Anthony (Tony) Williams, the Artistic Director of City Ballet of Boston, and Katherine Hooper, the Artistic Director of BoSoma Dance Company, offers a wide range of 21st century original and newly re-staged works.
For these performances, BoSoma performs works by all-female choreographers—Adrienne Hawkins, Jessica Flynn, Johanna Kepler, and Katherine Hooper. The works represent a range of lived experiences—from the joy within the Black community, to massive life shifts due to Covid and other events, and inspiration from the idea of global travel.
City Ballet of Boston opens their half of the performance with “The Moor’s Pavane,” choreographed by José Limón, and newly staged by Kurt Douglas in celebration of the Limón Dance Company’s 75th Anniversary. Following is “Respighi Variations,” choreographed by Tony Williams in 1985 and refreshed for 2022. The final pieces on their program in rotation are “Spring is Already Laughing” by choreographer Junichi Fukuda and the Romeo & Juliet Pas de Deux choreographed by Gianni DiMarco.
The performances, at the Boston Center for the Arts, take place on Friday, October 28th at 8pm; Saturday, October 29th at 2pm & 8pm; and Sunday, October 30th at 2pm. Tickets are $40-$50 and are on sale NOW!
