Company C Contemporary Ballet
2014 - 12th Annual Season

Maurice Causeyís slick, sleek and hard-edged Ominous Rumblings of Discontent was a hit of Company Cís 2011 season. The European dance-maker returns with a new ballet created especially for the Company set to a score by Gabriel Prokofiev, grandson of the legendary Russian composer, Sergei Prokofiev. Movement magician Charles Moulton will also create a new work for the program. Completing a trio of new works will be the world premiere of Whatís Behind Door #3 by Charles Anderson that takes as inspiration a creative musical score that samples doors opening, closing, creaking and swinging and a set of three doors the dancers use as inventive props. Rounding out the program and demonstrating the range of Company C artistsí technique and performance mettle include excerpts from Andersonís Aposiopesis, and Company C audience favorite Patrick Corbin returns with his dizzyingly athletic Partly Cloudy Suite, set to music by Marsha Groethe.

“In a dozen fast and frenetic years, we have consistently delivered an ambitious range of ballets and performances featuring significant choreographers from the Bay Area and beyond and compelling works that dig below the surface of performance to engage audiences in the nuances, emotions and psychological underpinnings of dance,” says founder and Artistic Director Charles Anderson. “This season we will continue to present the thrillingly theatrical, deeply passionate and breathtakingly athletic in ballets that range from complex character studies to boundlessly joyous dance for the pure sake of dance.”
