Dance at its most glam-o-rock-ous!
A full-throttle evening of entertainment that combines the artistry and beauty of dance with the power of the world’s most innovative popular rock icons who defined an epoch and became fixtures in American pop culture. Bowie is enigmatic. Queen is killer. S&R Foundation is proud to collaborate with The Washington Ballet in Bowie & Queen, which will feature S&R Artist-in-Residence, violinist Machiko Ozawa.
Trey McIntyre has electrified the ballet world by breaking the boundaries of contemporary ballet just as Freddie Mercury and Queen pushed the limits of musical performance. This virtuosic and wildly popular piece features both tap dance and ballet while contributing a new dimension to the familiar and beloved music of Freddie Mercury and Queen.
Choreography: Trey McIntyre
Dancing In the Street
Rounding out the program is a celebration of dance as a company premiere choreographed by Edwaard Liang and set to selections of music composed by Gabriel Gaffney Smith intermixed with selections from rock legend David Bowie.
Liang explores the irresistible energy that attracts people to dance using music from the quieter phases of David Bowie’s career with an arc that culminates in his spirited “Dancing In the Street” duet with Mick Jagger. He takes a Pan-like character who is garnering the courage to talk to a girl to reveal the communal power of dance to attract and liberate passersby. This is the fifth TWB commission with Liang.
Music: David Bowie, Gabriel Gaffney Smith
Violin: Machiko Ozawa
