Philadelphia Ballet’s ‘New Works for a New World’ series welcomes new work from three different choreographers
New works from choreographers Alba Castillo, Juliano Nunes, and Andrew Winghart will be put on for the Philadelphia Ballet series at the Kimmel Cultural Campus.
As is the case with many arts organizations — within and outside Philadelphia — the Philadelphia Ballet is planning a return to in-person events and productions.
In a statement from Philadelphia Ballet, the arts organization stresses the notion of growth after hardship:
“History’s greatest artistic achievements have emerged from tremendous hardship. After all, the Renaissance followed the Black Plague,” said Philadelphia Ballet.
Philadelphia Ballet is planning three world premiere productions — split into nine performances — between Feb. 3 - 12 at The Perelman Theater at the Kimmel Cultural Campus.
The new series from Philadelphia Ballet features work from three renowned choreographers: Alba Castillo, Juliano Nunes, and Andrew Winghart.
The Philadelphia Ballet has invited the three esteemed choreographers while reflecting on the state of in-person performance, as the pandemic finds itself at another crossroads of sorts among many.
Across the three choreographers, one has a connection to Spain, and another to Brazil.
Castillo was born in Valencia, Spain, starting a career in dance at 17 with the Teatres de la Generalitat Valenciana dance company.
On the other hand, choreographer Nunes trained at the Brazilian Dance Conservatory in Rio de Janeiro.
The work Nunes put in at the Brazilian Dance Conservatory led him to many places, such as Germany, where he studied dance for over two years.
