Smuin’s 22/23 season finale is a quadruple bill. Originally commissioned as an anniversary gift by a devoted Smuin patron, we present Dream by Michael Smuin, which is a stirring pas de deux set to “Romanza” from Chopin’s “Piano Concerto No. 1 in E minor, Op. 11.” Our DS2 program includes two new works created by women: a world premiere by Amy Seiwert and company premiere by Kate Skarpetowska, who Dance Magazine named one of “25 to Watch.” Rounding out the bill is Val Caniparoli’s Swipe, a highly technical and inventive piece for four men and three women set to a remix of “String Quartet No. 2” by Gabriel Prokofiev, grandson of Sergei Prokofiev who is a classically trained composer known for electronic and hip-hop music.
