Performance lasts two hours including one 15-minute intermission. A brief Q&A will follow the performance.
Ballet 5:8’s Compass features four one-act ballets inspired by the challenges of navigating cultural tension in the present day. From an alien society to 1970s Chicago, Compass stretches across time and space to explore some of our country’s most pressing topics. At times witty and satirical, while at times deeply emotional, Compass is full of athleticism, power, and poetry. Audiences are invited to a post-show TalkBack panel discussion with Ballet 5:8 Artistic Director Julianna Slager and artists of the company.
