Avant Chamber Ballet presents FASCINATING RHYTHMS: GERSHWIN, PIAZZOLLA AND MASON

May 3 and 4

7:30 pm with a family-friendly one-hour matinee at 2:30 pm on Saturday

Closing the season is Fascinating Rhythms – an exciting evening of dance and live music by George Gershwin, Astor Piazzolla, and local composer Quinn Mason.
Returning to the repertoire is George Balanchine’s Who Cares? – an audience favorite that perfectly pairs Gershwin’s toe-tapping melodies with Balanchine’s genius choreography.
Next is Paul Mejia’s Cafe Victoria, a company premiere features Piazzolla’s alluring Contrabajissimo.
The performance closes with a collaboration between choreographer Katie Cooper and composer Quinn Mason. The performance will mark the world premiere of both Cooper’s choreography and of Mason’s String Quartet No. 2.
