This mixed bill performance features three pieces with live piano accompaniment by Alaina DeBellevue: two company premieres and Stravinsky’s The Firebird. The show opens with (Dis)integrating Self, a contemporary ballet work exploring identity, community, and relationships as dancers play with finding center, pedestrian movements and what it means to be in partnership. The second piece on the program illustrates the first chapter of CU Boulder doctoral candidate Ellie Hara’s dissertation, Releasing Cyanide from Ferrocyanide Complexes by Carbon Monoxide Ligand Exchange in Alkaline Environments. Listen to Ellie Hara speak about her research and watch as it comes to life through movement. The final piece on the program is Stravinsky’s The Firebird, one of Russia’s most famous fairy tales full of love and magic. It tells the story of Prince Ivan’s journey to win the heart of his princess and destroy the immortal Koschei all with the help of a magical Firebird.
