Aspen Santa Fe Ballet Presents

2022 Santa Fe Performances

Experience the transformative power of dance this summer as Aspen Santa Fe Ballet curates an eclectic series of dance featuring three of the world’s finest dance companies.

BLACK GRACE

Friday, July 22, 8:00pm - Lensic Performing Arts Center

Made possible through the generosity of Pamela & Richard Hanlon

First up, all the way from New Zealand, is BLACK GRACE. Founded in 1995 by Neil Ieremia and steeped in the rich story-telling traditions of the South Pacific, BLACK GRACE masterfully blends contemporary and indigenous Samoan dance genres. This program will include O Le Olaga – Life, a tribute to Ieremia’s parents and a celebration of life set to Vivaldi’s Gloria in D Major, as well as Fatu, a new work inspired by Samoan painter and sculptor Fatu Akelei Feu’u. Santa Fe is one of only three stops on their North American tour.

Alonzo King LINES BALLET

Sunday, July 31, 8:00pm - Lensic Performing Arts Center

Made possible through the Estate of Dolly Gray-Bussard

Next comes Alonzo King LINES BALLET, celebrating 40 years of evocative dance. Master choreographer Alonzo King’s unique artistic vision adheres to the classical form — the linear, mathematical and geometrical principles deeply rooted in the pre-existing East-West continuum. Bending the line between classical and contemporary ballet, he draws on the strengths of his extraordinary dancers altering the way we look at ballet today. We proudly present Mr. King’s newest creation, Deep River, a collaboration with composer Jason Moran and Grammy-winning vocalist Lisa Fischer.

Levity and lightheartedness will be on full display with the mind-bending ever-popular MOMIX.
