03jun7:30 pmOregon Ballet TheatreThe Americans – take two


Event Details

At last! The much anticipated second installment of our The Americans series celebrating the unique voices and rich history of American choreographers. In this program we feature an OBT first time commission from rising star Michelle Manzanales whose piece Con Brazos Abiertos for Ballet Hispánico was lauded by the LA Times as one of “heart tugging beauty.” In high demand, Ms. Manzanales will premiere work on both coasts next season with commissions from Paul Taylor Dance Company as well as OBT. Rounding out this innovative production we are delighted to bring back two audience favorites: Darrell Grand Moultrie’s whimsical Fluidity of Steel celebrating maleness without conformity; and Ashley Roland and Jamey Hampton’s Big Shoes harkening back to that moment when we dressed in grown-ups’ clothes and imagined the vast road that stretched on ahead, forever beckoning, daring us.
