DBDT: Encore! presents a world premiere from Japanese choreographer Takehiro Ueyama. In the Sea of Heaven was created as an ode to the victims of the 2011 Japanese tsunami and the recent 2017 hurricanes. It’s a powerful work-featuring Encore! dancers exploring a variety of global cultural aesthetics.
Then Encore! shifts into fast-gear in Zach Law Ingram’s Phoenix, an action-packed contemporary ballet based on the mythical Greek firebird.
Texas Ballet Theater Professional Division will join the Rising Excellence Series as Special Guest Artiss in the world premiere of Wavelength, a contemporary ballet choreographed by TBT dancer Andre Silva.
