East Coast Premieres from Unbound: A Festival of New Works
Two programs featuring works by some of today’s most in-demand choreographers, including Edwaard Liang, Trey McIntyre, Justin Peck, and Christopher Wheeldon, plus Kennedy Center debuts by choreographers Cathy Marston and David Dawson
The world-renowned company follows its acclaimed 2016 performances of Cinderella with all-new East Coast premieres selected from its groundbreaking Unbound festival, which launched this past spring in San Francisco. Presented over two programs, the engagement brings works by familiar and new choreographers that reflect the company’s unique spirit of curiosity, experimentation, and invention.
The Center’s redux of the festival will showcase innovative partnering and shapes (Dawson), literary narrative (Marston), homage to family (McIntyre), evolutions into electronica (Peck), reflections on how technology and relationships intersect (Wheeldon), fully produced and widely raved sets for three of the repertory works (Liang, Marston, Wheeldon), and pieces in both pointe shoes and sneakers—along with contemporary vocal/pop/folk artists and classical music.
