James Sewell Ballet
James Sewell Ballet returns to the Sheldon with three unique pieces of contemporary ballet. Set at the crossroads of East and West to the music of acclaimed cellist Yo-Yo Ma and the Silk Road Ensemble, Silk Road offers a richly complex tapestry of sound and movement; the haunting and mysterious Dusty Realms offers a perspective on the subconscious need to swell or deflate time. Responding to the music of Minnesota hip-hop artist Dessa, Into the Spin rides the driving pulses of Dessa's music to reveal something altogether different in ballet.
