Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre says
Featuring the premieres of Alexander Ekman’s Cacti, Yuri Possokhov’s Classical Symphony &
John Heginbotham’s Angels’ Share

MAYhem is an explosive program that presents the future directions of dance propelled by the extraordinary talents and artistic vision of Atlanta Ballet.

Alexander Ekman is one of today’s most surprising choreographers with his work, Cacti, serving up a large dose of humor and whimsy. The piece, performed with live music, makes light of the sometimes absurd nature of the avant-garde.

Classical Symphony by Yuri Possokhov, former Bolshoi dancer and San Francisco Ballet resident choreographer, is a celebration of ballet. The New York Times described it as an “exhilarating and bold display of full-throttle academic pure dance with modern accentuations.”

Fresh off winning the Jacob’s Pillow Dance Award, John Heginbotham created Angels’ Share for Atlanta Ballet’s Wabi Sabi 2014 summer season. An ethereal and uplifting work, we are thrilled to premiere it on the Cobb Energy stage with live music.

Run time is approximately 1.5 hours, including one 20-minute intermission.

Program subject to change.
