A Golden Ticket
They always say a picture paints a thousand words, says David Palmer, co-program director with Yanis Pikieris of Miami City Ballets Contemporary Dance Series. Well, choreography is many pictures; its movement. And this statement reflects tonights series opener, an intimate look at Twyla Tharp, a master contemporary choreographer. The program features The Golden Section, from The Catherine Wheel, and a sneak peek at sections of Tharps In the Upper Room, scheduled to premiere during the repertory season.
Also planned is the unique Dance Talk with Edward Villella, founding artistic director/CEO. The talk offers an in-depth look at the neoclassical style of George Balanchines Agon, a piece said to have changed the world of ballet because it introduced and inspired a move to abstract. Villella will dissect ballet to show what lies behind that abstraction. Performances are at 8:00 tonight and Saturday (with a matinee at 2:00 p.m. Saturday) at the Miami City Ballet Studios, 2200 Liberty Ave., Miami Beach. Tickets cost $45. Call 305-929-7010, or visit www.miamicityballet.org.
Fri., Sept. 8, 8 p.m.; Sat., Sept. 9, 2 & 8 p.m.
