Clowns and Others
The Ballet leaps into its 2017–18 season with a Director’s Choice evening
of exciting works displaying the dancers’ versatility and Robert’s artistic
vision for the company. In Salvatore Aiello’s charming work, Clowns and
Others, they dance, romp, and mime their way through a range of human
emotions and experiences, whether squabbling over an oversized lollipop
or balancing on a ribbon tightrope, all to live piano accompaniment of the
Prokofiev Piano Miniatures. Plus, George Balanchine’s fiery Tarantella, Aiello’s
starkly contemporary “The Waiting Room,” and a new work by emerging
choreographer Isaac Sharratt of the Milwaukee Ballet. The performance also
features guest musicians Erin Aldridge and Alexander Sandor.
