Ballet Memphis


“The ache and darkness…put onstage was more than a dance, it was an echo of human experience,” declared The Washington Post about Ballet Memphis who, pairing innovation with raw emotion in every stunning step, delivers a new vibrancy to the dance stage. The mixed repertory programs feature contemporary works grounded in the classical aesthetic that the company has presented so exquisitely on stages around the world. They includes Matthew Neenan’s The Darting Eyes and Julia Adam’s Devil’s Fruit, commissioned works from the company’s lauded River Project series that usher in with realness and grace Ballet Memphis’ commitment to creating distinctly American dance.
