From the whispers of the past we hear a resound that cannot be silenced. Every human - beautiful or plain, desirable or marginalized - is precious and created with purpose. Join Ballet 5:8 for an evening of one-act ballets featuring Julianna Rubio Slager’s Butterfly, in memory of the children of WWII Terezin, and their poems and artwork. Also included: a World Premiere by Kevin Jenkins, winner of multiple Dance Magazine and Pointe Magazine Editors Choice choreography awards, Slager’s Of Splendors and Horrors, inspired by C.S. Lewis’ book The Weight of Glory, and Slager’s playful Brothers & Sisters, exploring the beauty and contrast of men and women.
Right in the Eye
Sunday March 22nd 2020 at 2:00 pm
Following the success of its first tour in 2018 and after a run of over 500 performances in Europe and in North America, the live movie-concert Right in the eye, created by the French artist and composer Jean-François Alcoléa, returns to the USA.
This multimedia show offers a contemporary poetic and playful rendition of Georges Méliès’ universes performed by 3 live musicians. With a multitude of instruments and an original orchestration, the musicians together with the image bring a new life to the fantasy and genius of the father of cinema and special effects. A show for all ages that reimagines the early years of cinema.
“This show rises to the challenge of reflecting the wondrous singularity that so appropriately describes the films produced by Méliès. It is at once inventive, elegant, and moving... right to the core.” - Chronique - Festival OFF Avignon

A&A Ballet presents:
Saturday May 16th 2020 at 2:00pm & 7:00 pm
What does it mean to be real? Inspired by the original Italian tale of 1883, this much-loved fairy tale follows
the mischievous and charming wooden puppet, Pinocchio, as he pursues his dream of being a real boy.
We accompany him as he learns the life-lessons that make one real.
A perfect ballet for audiences of all ages, we celebrate his concluding realization that “I am who I am because I’m me.”
A & A BALLET invites you to its production of Pinocchio. Colorful costumes, tender characters, delightful storytelling: all work together to bring to life the story of the stumbling and endearing Pinocchio as he pursues an obstacle-filled
adventure that, in the end, reminds us all that dreams can come true. The production is child-friendly; it has
two acts and lasts approximately 1 hour and fifteen minutes, including a fifteen-minute intermission.
