State Street Ballet Presents Modern Masters

Following the 2016 production of Women’s Work, described by the Santa Barbara Independent as “a bold new step for both the company and the dance community,” State Street Ballet is again focusing on innovative repertory with Modern Masters.

Performances are at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, May 13, and 2 p.m. Sunday, May 14, at the New Vic, 33 W. Victoria St.

An eclectic mix of contemporary movement, Modern Masters offers new ideas from choreographers who are redefining the language of ballet.

The weekend’s showcase, described by Artistic Director Rodney Gustafson as “not your grandmother’s ballet,” brings together choreographers William Soleau of New York, Gina Patterson of Jackson Hole, Kevin Jenkins of Boston, and Cecily Stewart of Santa Barbara.

Saturday’s program will also feature a presentation celebrating acclaimed dance photographer Rose Eichenbaum’s new book, Inside the Dancer’s Art, and her 20-year association with State Street Ballet. A discussion with the choreographers follows Sunday’s matinee.

State Street Ballet’s 2016-17 season is sponsored by Margo Cohen-Feinberg and Tim Mikel.

Tickets are priced at $18 and $38. To buy tickets, visit statestreetballet.com, or call the New Vic box office, 965 5400. Group discounts, for parties of 10 or more, are available.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
