An inspiring, multiplistic mix of contemporary ballet from nine different choreographers, it’s Balletfest! Join us for this first gathering featuring the works of both modern masters and emerging southland artists selected by Southern California’s own Kenneth Walker.
Balletfest showcases works by José Costas, Jestoni “Jet” Dagdag, Joyce Lo, Zoe Marinello-Kohn, Maté Szentes, Stella Sing Yiun Ng, Marine de Vachon and fKWDP performing the work of Salvatore Aiello and Gerald Arpino, as well as This diverse group of up-and-coming choreographers was chosen from an open submission call. Each artist is helping to diversify the voices creating ballet in Southern California.
Program highlights include the pas de deux from Light Rain by Gerald Arpino. Staged for KWDP by Joffrey Ballet alum Cameron Basden, this sensual duet is an audience favorite wherever it is performed. KWDP is proud to be the first company to perform it in Los Angeles since Joffrey moved to Chicago in 1995.
