Description: “Possibly the country’s most innovative ballet troupe.”-The New York Times

Making its much-anticipated UApresents debut, New York’s Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet is renowned for dancers who combine powerful physicality with classical technique. As its reputation has gone from strength to strength, the company has delivered brilliantly on its mission to integrate ballet with contemporary and popular forms.

For its first Tucson appearance, Cedar Lake will introduce works of three of the world’s most innovative choreographers. Created by Israeli-born Hofesh Shechter, Violet Kid examines man’s struggle for harmony within a complex and often horrifying universe. Tuplet, a pulsating work for six dancers, uses the dancers’ own bodies as percussion instruments. Canadian choreographer Crystal Pite’s noirish Grace Engine concludes the bill. A performance not to be missed.
