Oceanica Ballet, a new professional ballet company, is proud to present its inaugural production, “Blue Skies.” Five choreographers explore themes of resilience, hope, and joy in a dynamic showcase of world premieres presented in-person. Constanza Murphy aims to create a moment of simple beauty danced deftly by an ensemble of men in her ballet “Rachmaninoff Suite.” Jessica Woodman explores dichotomies of slow vs fast, soft vs sharp, and precision vs flow in pas de deux and ensemble forms. Matthew Ebert’s “Raining Glass” imagines a torrential downpour which resembles shards of glass. Robert Burns Lowman juxtaposes moments of community and meditation in “Lark Ascending.” Edgar Lepe’s “Swingin'” finds parallels between WWII-era big band music and our current need for hope and vivacity in the face of uncertainty.
Easy on-site parking at both locations
