Danced to the stirring music of a lone piano, Ben Stevenson’s Three Preludes explores the evolution of a couple’s love in an intimate ballet setting. In an excerpt from Colin Connor’s Vestiges, two dancers display their undeniable connection, reminiscent of a moth to a flame. The program closes with a world premiere by Richmond Ballet Associate Artistic Director Ma Cong. Cong’s undeniably emotive signature movement, along with an extraordinary score by David McAlmont and Michael Nyman, will be the base for a powerful new work that reflects the human experience.
