Avant Chamber Ballet celebrates the opening of its ninth season and the return to live performances with a unique production, ACB Unplugged.
Sammons Center for the Arts’ Kurth Hall is a non-traditional, intimate venue that breaks down the fourth wall and will give an up-close view of the dancers and pianist Mikhail Berestnev. The program features three district genres of ballet. First is Bouronville’s Napoli Act 3, a celebration of Neapolitan life that ends with the famous joyful tarantella. Next on the program is the return of Katie Puder’s Ragtime, a romp through early American jazzy rhythms which was first performed February 2019. Closing the program is a world premiere by Katie Puder with music by Philip Glass.
