Morphoses/The Wheeldon company performing in SF
Ballets great white hope Christopher Wheeldon is bringing his spectacular company Morphoses this week to the Yerba Buena Center of the Arts as part of the companies california tour. This will be the 1st time in San Francisco's history that his work has been seen outside of the War Memorial Opera House and home to the San Francisco Ballet. Wheeldon is bringing in not only a great rep with a couple new works by Edward Liang and Alexei Ratmansky but he also restaged Continumm which was set on SFB a few years ago. It will be interesting to see how his dancers take on the ballet which im sure will be terrific. Im personally very interested in seeing his company because of its amazing dancers with the likes of Drew Jacoby , Rubi Pronk, Edward Liang, Rory Hohenstein (former SFB soloist) whom all bring something different to the table.
heres a YouTube of the company at Sadlers Wells.
