Gendered, Genderless

Exploring gender in his 10-minute piece, Domenico Luciano’s new ballet is the culmination of the talents of five dancers and the magic of Michale Jones’ ability to create soundscapes. In this piece, there will be little differences between the male and female dancers, and all five will take the stage to show off their flawless technique.

17 Years of Perfection

Yosvani Ramos will be bringing his piece Steps in the Night to Attitude on Santa Fe. The 17-year-old piece will feature eight dancers performing to movements one and two of Beethoven’s seventh symphony. Despite its age, this piece has been recreated specifically for Attitude and is Ramos’ vision of his first ballet reborn.

Storyless Movement

What Could Have Been; An Unfinished Symphony by Arianna Ciccarelli will feature a piano piece by Wesley Harper and the dark and dramatic tones of Knee Play 4 by Philip Glass. Ciccarelli’s ballet is an experience in choreography and dance. Though, it does not portray a formal storyline.

A Glitch in the System

The last work featured in Attitude is an untitled piece by Kevin Hale. A movement of eight dancers set to Radiohead, this ballet is about robots malfunctioning when they start to experience feelings.
