Evanescent though it may be, Bjork Ballet is a wonderful watch - surprising, mysterious and a ridiculous amount of fun.

Why See San Francisco Ballet - Program 6?

Peck, Scarlett & Pita

The San Francisco Ballet's kaleidoscopic 2019 Repertory Season continues with the eclectic fusions and fizzing pop culture of Program No. 6. The thrilling adventure of Justin Peck's Rodeo: Four Dance Episodes sets things off to a rousing pace with its abstract and energetic embodiment of Aaron Copland's Americana-infused score. A cast of 15 male dancers and a single female principal deconstruct Agnes de Mille's original Rodeo ballet, challenging ballet's traditional focus on normative feminine and masculine roles with humour and kinetic brilliance.

A brand new world premiere work by up and coming British choreographer Liam Scarlett enjoys its debut thereafter. The Royal Ballet artist in residence has proved himself to be an emerging force to be reckoned with due to his critically acclaimed work in Frankenstein, Fearful Symmetries and Hummingbird. The evening closes with the cacophony of glamour, dreamlike fairytale and outrageousness that is Arthur Pita's Bjork Ballet. Set to eight songs by the inimitable Icelandic avant-garde pop icon, the abstract work captures the yearning, mischief and kinetic magic of her music in a synthesis of movement, art, costumes and design.
