A series of stunning pieces make their way to the Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts to challenge and enlighten the Bay Area. With Smuin, ballet choreographer extraordinaire Helen Pickett's sensual and powerful "Oasis" is set to an original score by Emmy award-winning "House of Cards" composer Jeff Beal. Inspired by the simplicity of nature, Pickett offers challenge and exploration to both dancers and audiences alike, igniting the stage with passionate energy. Choreographer-in-Residence Amy Seiwert's visually stunning "Falling Up" offers an in-depth look at strength and trust between partners. Set to a lush piano score by Johannes Brahms, Seiwert's signature sculptural movement and intimate partnering enhance the energy of contemporary ballet, resulting in a delicate creation. Last but not least, master dance maker Val Caniparoli returns to Smuin to create a world premiere to conclude the 24th season.
