Studio ONE Choreographer’s Club
World Premiere (Neal), Bow Out (Caniparoli/Bedford & Powell)
Building on the success of Gargoyles, Philip Neal, one of Richmond Ballet’s illustrious alums, returns to choreograph another world premiere to open the 30th anniversary season.
Ballet at its most unexpected: Bow Out pairs sleek style with the unconventional jazz music of the Apollo Saxophone Quartet. In Bow Out, both male and female dancers don men’s suits for an urban take on contemporary movement. Choreographed by Caniparoli, who has been called an “American master with a uniquely eclectic style,” Bow Out premiered in 1995 at Richmond Ballet.
This opening night event includes a post-performance Q&A with artistic staff and guests, along with a post-performance reception.
