Tu Tu is not your conventional affair; Get ready for a highly stylized classical work with a playful twist

Join Atlanta Ballet in April for a spectacular program highlighting the broad spectrum of dance today, including a Company premiere, a world premiere, and an Atlanta Ballet signature work!

Created by Stanton Welch, Artistic Director of Houston Ballet, Tu Tu is not your conventional affair. Moving from buoyant to beguiling, impassioned partnering, Tu Tu is a visually arresting program set off with boldly colored costumes and dramatic lighting. Get ready for a highly stylized classical work with a playful twist. A Company premiere.

After twenty-one seasons as a Company dancer and four main stage commissions, Tara Lee returns with blink, a new and vibrant neoclassical style ballet set to one of Johannes Brahms’ most challenging piano scores. Like capturing lightning in a bottle, the dancers’ energy surges past the confines of the stage and takes you on a voyage through the cosmos. Reflecting the stars of the constellations, they expand and move in and out of configuration, exploring the fleeting, yet sacred, moments that make up a mere blink in the vast history of the universe. A world premiere featuring live piano accompaniment.

Minus 16, one of choreographer Ohad Naharin’s most celebrated works, offers a thrilling exploration of the human experience set to music ranging from Israeli folk songs to Dean Martin standards. Powerful, visceral, and crowd-pleasing, you won’t want to miss this one-of-a-kind work. ArtsATL described it as “irreverent, mischievous, cruel, ironic, irrational, soul-searching and a little kooky.” Experience it for yourself! An Atlanta Ballet signature work.
