New Work
World Premiere
Choreography: Cayetano Soto

“The more complicated it gets, the more beautiful it becomes.”
—Cayetano Soto

To launch the season, Soto will create a new one-act work for the full company that will bring together his integrated vision as a choreographer, costume and lighting designer in surprising new ways. An intuitive and masterful designer of movement and space, cited by Dance Europe as having “an abundance of originality”, Soto commands his audiences to dive into intriguing worlds of curiosity and discovery with his choreography.

North American Premiere
Choreography: Johan Inger

“I want to explore the world that lies behind people and their habits – great winds of change actually begin with the smallest of breezes…” —Johan Inger

One of the most prominent dance makers today, Johan Inger’s renowned work probes our intellect and sensitivities. Inger made his choreographic debut in 1995 after a thriving dance career at the Nederlands Dans Theater (NDT), where he remains as Associate Choreographer. In B.R.I.S.A., Inger explores the themes of awakening and change.
