An unforgettable mix of live dance and piano virtuosity with world-renowned pianist Joyce Yang performing live on stage. ASFB tackles the quirky Half/Cut/Split by noted Finnish choreographer Jorma Elo, who collaborated with Yang to bring Robert Schumann’s Carnaval to life. Also on the program are Fernando Melo’s Dream Play set to the music of Erik Satie and Frédéric Chopin, and Nicolo Fonte’s touching Where We Left Off with music by Philip Glass. Pre-show talks start in the lobby 45 minutes before the show.
“Yang’s attention to detail and clarity is as impressive as her agility, balance, and velocity.”WASHINGTON POST
