Oceanica Ballet presents "Harvest Moon" on Sunday 10/17 at 1pm and 4pm in South San Francisco

Sunday, Oct 17, 2021 from 1:00pm to 2:30pm

  General Admission USD 30.00


Oceánica Ballet is proud to present Harvest Moon. Five San Francisco Bay Area choreographers present ballets of elegance, whimsy, and contemplation in a showcase of world premieres. Featured choreographers include Oceánica Ballet Artistic Co-Directors Edgar Lepe and Robert Burns Lowman, along with returning choreographer Jessica Woodman and guest choreographers Isabelle Sjahsam and Connolly Strombeck. Intrigued by the depiction of the marriage ceremony in classical performance, Isabelle Sjahsam draws from Nijinska’s Les Noces, Shakespeare, and traditional pas de deux to create a joyful queer reclaiming of the “wedding scene.” Jessica Woodman presents an exploration of individuality through five solos choreographed around the personalities of the dancers performing them. Connolly Strombeck’s work explores the struggles we all experience dealing with change and accepting when the time has come to make changes for the better. Strombeck’s work asks what we need to let go of to move forward, and how do we find the courage to break our self-destructive patterns? Edgar Lepe’s An Autumn Gala harkens to the romantic era of ballet with dances to music by Alexander Glazunov, Joseph Lanner, and Johann Strauss I. Robert Burns Lowman’s Game Night! turns tabletop games into a mod 1960’s dance romp.

Harvest Moon will be performed in-person in Bay Area Ballet Conservatory’s Studio One at 7pm on Saturday October 16th, 2021; and at 1pm and 4pm on Sunday October 17th, 2021. All members of Oceánica Ballet have presented proof of Covid immunization and will be masked. All audience members are respectfully required to be masked.
