Smuin Ballet, Cold Virtues, Adam Hougland
The program also features a set of pieces choreographed by Michael Smuin. Starshadows, a sensual and evocative adagio for three couples, explores the mystery and beauty of intimate relationships. Set to Maurice Ravel's Piano Concerto in G major, this piece is dark, dreamlike, and describes in dance a half-remembered melody that flows through the viewer's consciousness. Two solo works by Smuin will also grace the stage; Homeless is a joyous, exhilarating piece that celebrates dance athleticism through sudden leaps and sublime jumps while following the insistent exotic rhythm imbedded in the music. No Viviré spices up the stage when it pairs the extensive classical training of dancing en pointe with the delicious flavoring of Latin American rhythms.
