Event Details

In this program we enter the mysterious and time bending world of our dreams. We begin with the return of Canadian choreographer Matjash Mrozewski’s The Lost Dance. Seven stylish figures emerge almost as ghosts on a smoky ballroom floor to engage in a kind of ritual dance. Set to Owen Belton’s eerie score, there is a surreal quality to this work that evokes the cinematic world of David Lynch.

We follow The Lost Dance with two OBT premieres. First from audience favorite Trey McIntyre, who takes inspiration from legendary Roy Orbison’s impassioned songs to create In Dreams an achingly romantic work. The dancing is clear, expansive, and uncluttered with Orbison’s “magnificent voice filling the rest of the picture, flooding the stage, and washing over the seats,” writes Sarah Kaufman for The Washington Post.

The program closes with Dreamland, a highly charged work from Australian choreographer and former Australian Ballet Principal, Danielle Rowe. Her powerful and mesmerizing ballet springs from a nightmare of being trapped and clawing to break free.
