Ballet 5:8 | Compass | Navigating Cultural Tension with Compassion

Saturday, October 28, 2017 at 7:00 pm

Devos Center for Arts and Worship

Ballet 5:8’s “Compass” features four one-act ballets inspired by the challenges of navigating cultural tension in the present day. From an alien society to 1970’s Chicago, Compass stretches across time and space to explore some of our country’s most pressing topics. At times witty and satirical, and at times deeply emotional, Compass is full of athleticism, power and poetry. Audiences are invited to a post-show TalkBack panel discussion with Ballet 5:8 Artistic Director Julianna Slager and artists of the company.

MBA students will open with two contemporary pieces choreographed by Artistic Director, Nikoloz Mahkateli.
