Smuin Contemporary Ballet presents “Dance Series 1”

Smuin Ballet kicks off its 29th season with Dance Series 1

Smuin Contemporary Ballet kicks off its 29th season with Dance Series 1 featuring a long-awaited World Premiere by brilliant Cuban choreographer Osnel Delgado, whose work Bay Area audiences will experience for the first time in The Turntable. Set on Smuin company artists, this vibrant debut is inspired by the uncanny timing of life and is set to a sweeping percussive soundtrack including music from Latin American artists and composers. Also on the bill is Annabelle Lopez Ochoa’s hit Requiem for a Rose, which examines both the ephemeral nature of romance and the enduring devotion of love in a pulsing ballet called “Brilliant” by the San Francisco Chronicle. Finally, the music of jazz legend Dave Brubeck will come alive in Take Five by former Company member Rex Wheeler (who recently gained international fame as the first runner-up on the 2022 season of “RuPaul’s Drag Race.”)
