Why See San Francisco Ballet - Program 5?
McIntyre, Wheeldon, Possokhov
The San Francisco Ballet presents an exciting amalgam of styles and genres during Program 5 as part of their 2019 repertory season. The program begins with prolific American choreographer Trey McIntyre's 'Your Flesh Shall Be a Great Poem', a kinetic personification of McIntyre's trademark whimsical sweetness and mediative movement set to Americana-tinged tracks from singer-songwriter Chris Garneu's El Radio album.
His 10th commissioned work for the company, Christopher Wheeldon's 'Bound To' follows. A radical flurry of intricate patterns and steps set to the music of English folk musician Keaton Henson, the expressive work explores the inextricable relationship between humans and their hand-held smart phones. A hotly anticipated world premiere by San Francisco Ballet's Choreographer in Residence Yuri Possokhov closes the evening.
Performance date: 30 March 2019
