RADIANT, an evening of neoclassical and contemporary ballet by NWABT’s new artistic director with music from A.L. Webber, W.A. Mozart, and more, promises an athletic, elegant, and moving experience.
JOIN US, as NWA Ballet Theatre presents, Radiant: 5 brand-new works created by new artistic director, Stephen Wynne. The evening opens with A Table 4 4, a contemporary work depicting 4 strangers who unexpectedly find themselves at the same location and situation. These 4 arrived expectant, but realized they were jilted. Next, Unglued, a neoclassical choreography performed to a collection of heart-melting compositions by Andrew Lloyd Webber!
After a 15-minute intermission, the company gathers once again to perform Of a Feather, a narrative with music from W.A. Mozart, which unpacks the choices we sometimes make as we seek connection. Perhaps we are all guilty of first flocking to those who speak our language. This piece offers a mixture of classical and contemporary costuming. Next, A la Playa, a neoclassical choreography set at a beach, a soloist wakes up to find her friends have abandoned her, and there’s only an umbrella left to jog her memory. Lastly, Emerge, a dramatic contemporary concept-piece depicting the anatomy of a rise and fall.
