Denver's Wonderbound dance company will perform artistic director Garrett Ammon's “Serenade For Strings,” choreographed in 2013 to Tchaikovsky's work of the same name, at Parker's PACE Center Oct. 18 and 19. The dancers will be accompanied by musicians from the Colorado Symphony Orchestra.
It was the first time a choreographer had set a piece to the full score since George Balanchine and it drew national attention.
Ammons recently visited the Smuin Ballet Company in San Francisco to stage the ballet on those accomplished dancers for a West Coast premiere.
A new work by dancer/choreographer Sarah Tallman will fill out the program.
It is set to Edvard Grieg's “Holberg Suite” and features five movements based on 18th-century dance forms. Her piece is inspired by the work of 20th-century surrealists.Tallman said, “I'm so excited and grateful to be premiering a brand new work for our season opener with musicians of the Colorado Symphony.
“Surrealist art, juxtaposed with the gorgeous Grieg composition, has sparked my curiosity and I can't wait to explore the subconscious, dreamlike aspects of our minds and their joyous complexities.”
Wonderbound will perform again later in the season at the PACE Center and at Lone Tree Arts Center in April. Formerly known as Ballet Nouveau Colorado, the company has a studio at 1075 Park Avenue West in Denver, where small performances are sometimes held.
