Fire & Ice
Contemporary Ballet Dallas opens its 14th Anniversary concert season of dance with Fire & Ice on October 23-24, 2014, 8:00pm, at the Latino Cultural Center. Fire & Ice features several premieres continuing CBD’s mission to present innovative dance performances while cultivating emerging dance artists and choreographers in North Texas.
Director Valerie Tabor premieres Firebird Suite, featuring Lea Essmyer Zablocki, as the Firebird, and Brandon McGee, as Prince Ivan. Local musician Nick Earl infuses Igor Stravinsky's classic score with original composition, introducing an updated version to North Texas.
Local artist, choreographer, and dancer Danielle Georgiou is premiering Fending. Set to Osso String Quartet’s re-working of Sufjan Stevens’ instrumental album, Enjoy Your Rabbit, Fending focuses on the complexities in relationships, and protecting one’s self from outside forces. Choreographer Erin Boone is refreshing her fiery Fandango for Five. The guitar talents of Milos Karadaglic provide the musical backdrop, while Mrs. Boone expands the work with a larger cast and a new section.
Mrs. Tabor is also restaging Personnel, set to the compelling sounds of Kronos Quartet. Personnel is a haunting examination at the monotony of the ‘daily grind.’ Choreographer Jennifer Arellano is also bringing back audience favorite Diablo, taking an evocative glimpse into the Devil’s lair.
