Prepare to be blown away by BalletX’s much-anticipated return to its intimate home theater, the Wilma, with a week-long performance series featuring world premieres by three of today’s brightest rising choreographic stars: Tiler Peck, Gustavo Ramirez Sansano, and Jamar Roberts.
MEET THE CHOREOGRAPHERS
Tiler Peck, regarded as a “dance luminary” by The Washington Post and “the ballerina who can stop time” by The New York Times, is an award-winning Principal Dancer with the New York City Ballet, actress, choreographer, author, and designer. Tiler, a frequent collaborator with the Vail Dance Festival, joins BalletX for her first work on the company, set to a composition by renowned flutist and composer, Valerie Coleman.
Gustavo Ramirez Sansano
Gustavo Ramirez Sansano is the director of TITOYAYA and the creator of works for Nederlands Dans Theater and Ballet BC, among many others. He returns after his hit BalletX Beyond film, Hernando’s Hideaway, with a work set to the music of Bert Kaempfert and inspired by the famed saying, “Love has no cure, but it is the only medicine for all ills.”
Sponsored by Spain-USA Foundation
Jamar Roberts, whose choreography has been praised as “striking” and “virtuosic” by The New York Times, is a Bessie Award-winner and Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater’s Resident Choreographer. He first collaborated with BalletX at the 2021 Vail Dance Festival, and makes his Philadelphia debut with a new work set to music by Don Shirley, legendary pianist, composer, and inspiration for the film Green Book.
