Daniil Simkin’s INTENSIO
Event on 2015-11-06 20:00:00
Critics compare American Ballet Theatre’s Daniil Simkin to the likes of Baryshnikov and Nureyev. In this much-anticipated dance and multimedia performance to live piano accompaniment, Simkin is joined on stage by fellow stars of ABT – Isabella Boylston, Alexandre Hammoudi, Blaine Hoven, Calvin Royal III, Hee Seo, Cassandra Trenary and James Whiteside – as well as special guest Céline Cassone of Les Ballets Jazz de Montréal. INTENSIO features this ensemble of dancers performing four innovative, newly commissioned works from four of today’s finest modern and contemporary ballet choreographers: Alexander Ekman, Gregory Dolbashian, Jorma Elo and Annabelle Lopez Ochoa. In addition, original real-time video technology, created by Simkin’s father, Dmitrij Simkin, will be integrated into the Ochoa piece. INTENSIO will make its world premiere at Jacob’s Pillow on July 22, 2015.
