Pacific Northwest Ballet: Director's Choice

Closed March 26, 2017

As with a lot of Lang's work, the overall "world" of "Her Door to the Sky" is evoked as much by the lighting, costumes, and decor as it is by the choreography

Why See Pacific Northwest Ballet: Director's Choice?

Peter Boal gives us his season's choice of works

Three works including a world premiere comprise this mixed repertory program, the fourth of the PNB season at McCaw Hall. Jessica Lang arrives from the East Coast with an arresting new piece of original work, Her Door to the Sky, commissioned in 2016 especially for the Seattle-based company, first glimpsed at Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival in August. William Forsythe's New Suite is an adapted version of his work for Dresden Semperoper Ballet, composed of pas de deux, and Empire Noir by David Dawson who originally created for Dutch National Ballet in 2015.

The evening's main event, Lang's special commission Her Door to the Sky is heavily inspired by the Patio Door series of paintings by Georgia O'Keeffe. Using paintings and a simple set design created by Lang herself, the large central window acts as the eponymous door, allowing full interaction with the dancers, and connecting to the ever-changing sky outside.
