About Dance Series 02 - San Francisco

Helen Pickett’s sensual and powerful "Oasis", set to an original score by Emmy award-winning House of Cards composer Jeff Beal, returns to the Smuin stage. Pickett offers challenge and inspiration to dancers and audiences alike, igniting the stage with passionate energy. A feast for the senses, "Oasis" explores the concept of water in its many incarnations and implications, celebrating its abundance and its essential role in life.

Choreographer-in-Residence Amy Seiwert’s visually stunning "Falling Up" offers an in-depth exploration of strength and trust between partners. Set to a lush piano score by Johannes Brahms, Seiwert’s signature sculptural movement and intimate partnering enhance the energy of contemporary ballet, resulting in a delicate creation.

Master dance maker Val Caniparoli returns to Smuin to create a world premiere to conclude their 24th season. Capitalizing on the strengths of the Smuin dancers, Caniparoli weaves a unique movement narrative that transforms time-honored classical forms into vibrant, cutting-edge and humanistic dance experiences. Caniparoli was last seen with the Company when commissioned by Smuin in Spring 2014 to create his lauded Tutto Eccetto Il Lavandino (everything but the kitchen sink), a piece set to the music of Vivaldi.
