The Planets

The PlanetsPerformed by Backhausdance with Sabrina Xiao He and Paul Cracchiolo on Two Pianos

Cool off at the McCallum with performances that feed the soul and awaken the imagination!

Backhausdance returns to the McCallum stage with The Planets set to Gustav Holst’s musical movement suite by the same name. Made famous in its fully orchestrated form, it was originally scored by Holst for two pianos. Accompanying Backhausdance on this galactic voyage are pianists Sabrina He and Paul Cracchiolo.  Fluidity and strength take center stage as the dancers powerfully traverse the musical landscapes of Mars, Venus, Mercury, Jupiter and Neptune.  Steeped in choreographer Jennifer Backhaus’s detailed and meticulously sculpted style and imbued with her refined yet playful sense of humor, The Planets brings us a fluid and seamless fusion of classical and contemporary dance that will excite young and old.
