“The revolution might not have been televised, but it was choreographed.”
For more than half a century, the Joffrey Ballet has been “America’s Company of Firsts”: the first dance company to perform at the White House; the first to appear on television; the first American company to visit Russia; the first classical dance company to use multimedia; the first to commission a rock ‘n’ roll ballet; the first, and only, dance company to appear on the cover of TIME magazine, and the first company to be the subject of a major motion picture, Robert Altman’s The Company. Now, the Joffrey Ballet makes their first Flynn appearance in a performance of Kurt Jooss’ The Green Table (1932), an expressionist anti-war work that was equivalent to a warning against the clouds darkening over Europe. The company also performs two contemporary works, Christopher Wheeldon’s After the Rain and a brand new piece by Houston Ballet’s superstar, Stanton Welch.
Please Note: Pistols with blanks will be fired on stage during the performance of The Green Table.
