FEATURING A HEATH GILL WORLD PREMIERE; STEPHANIE MARTINEZ’S “DOS LADOS” & JORDEN MORRIS’ DEVERELL

Mixed repertory is always a high point in the season because the artistic director has constructed a menu of shorter programs that offer a lot of something for everyone. The production begins with a world premiere delivered by Orlando Ballet’s own Rehearsal Director Heath Gill who has wowed audiences with his highly charged and imaginative creations “Confronting Genius” and “The Next Big Thing.” Gill’s ability to captivate audiences through an uncanny and clear ability to fuse the best of classical and contemporary dance has established him as one of the country’s most exciting young choreographers.

Stephanie Martinez’s “Dos Lados, (which translates to Two Sides) a powerful, 13-person ensemble that performs to Spanish guitar in exploration of the idea of duality. Martinez, founder and artistic director of PARA.MAR Dance Theatre in Chicago, is recognized for her focus on diversity and her ability to quickly connect the energy of her contemporary choreography with the audience. This is a premiere performance in Central Florida. Martinez has created more than 60 ballets for companies across the country including Joffrey Ballet, Ballet Hispanico, Kansas City Ballet and National Choreographers Initiative, to name a few.

The production will close with Deverell, yet another of Jorden Morris’ dynamic creations which premiered in 2005 in his native Canada and now will have its Central Florida premiere. Deverell is Gaelic for “on the riverbank” and is one of his most popular works. Morris describes this production as his version of “Riverdance” and notes that he created it as an ode to his own Celtic roots.
