To kick off the celebration of the school’s 50th anniversary, SMU Meadows School of the Arts will showcase the critically acclaimed Meadows Symphony Orchestra and the Meadows Dance Ensemble. Led by conductor Paul Phillips, the one-night only program will include three world premieres by internationally acclaimed choreographers.
Former Paul Taylor dancer Takehiro Ueyama will create a new work, “Heroes,” set to “The Chairman Dances” by noted American composer John Adams. Featuring powerful athleticism, as well as delicate gestures drawn from his Japanese heritage. Alex Sanchez, known for his musical theater work on and off Broadway, will create a new dance work to George Gershwin’s “Rhapsody in Blue,” with a story line inspired by the hope and determination of the immigrant experience in 1920s New York. Dwight Rhoden, co-founder and co-artistic director of the New York City-based Complexions Contemporary Ballet, will close out the program with “Stellar Matter,” a new work choreographed to an orchestral suite from Gustav Holst’s “The Planets.”
