Ballaro Dance

Vivaldi

Ballaro Dance builds community through the creation and presentation of modern dance while inviting its audience, often first-time dance viewers, to SEE, MOVE, & SHARE with the Company in an approachable, welcoming environment; community is prioritized at the center of the work. Ballaro Dance presents Vivaldi, a dance film in collaboration with Zoran Prodanovic. The piece highlights a coming-of-age journey building in intensity through the embodiment of an internal “blue” quality as the film climaxes in slow motion. Matching the dramatic music with contrasting colors and hues, light, and shadows, environments change to parallel the inner monologue of the character.

Described as “magnetic and intricate,” Flexicurve is known for its high artistic standards and innovative movement vocabulary. Out of the Shadows is a collaborative dance film created with Z Collective and is inspired by Plato's Allegory of the Cave.
