Ballet22Through Jul 30th
Ballet22 plans a spectacular Summer season in the Cowell Theater at Fort Mason Center For Arts & Culture with performances of Juntos on Friday and Saturday, July 29 and 30, 2022, 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. The Juntos Program Guide is available at this link.
The program includes excerpts of classical ballets that honor the technique and history of ballet, contemporary works re-envisioned for an all mxn and non-binary cast, as well as a world premiere. Repertoire includes Don Quixote Grand Pas de Deux, La Sylphide Grand Pas de Deux, Juntos by Joshua A. Stayton, and new works by Fernando Ramos and Natasha Adorlee.
Founded in 2020 by Roberto Vega Ortiz and Theresa Knudson, Ballet22 exists to push the boundaries of what is possible in ballet while focusing on producing and presenting works, ranging from classical to contemporary ballet, that break gender normative traditions, specifically by presenting men, mxn, and non-binary artists “en pointe.”
Since its founding, Ballet22 has commissioned seven new ballets that contribute to representation in the ballet world. Named by Dance Magazine as “25 to Watch in 2022,” the company continues to prioritize commissioning works that bring inclusion to the LGBTQ+ community and experience in ballet.
