Smuin Ballet dancers bring their collective passion, depth of talent, finesse, and beauty to the stage to create and perform their own new works. In this intimate, in-house performance, our dancers premiere new works created on one another and collaborate on lighting, stagecraft and costumes. Come on into our house at Smuin and see how we create!
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.
