The Miraculous Mandarin
Choreographer: Yuri Possokhov | Music: Béla Bartók
Master of invention and Joffrey favorite Yuri Possokhov brings wild imagination to Bartók’s dramatic post-World War I tableau. Dubbed “reliably unpredictable” by the San Francisco Chronicle, the San Francisco Ballet resident choreographer never fails to delight — and stun — with his storytelling.
Choreographer: Alexander Ekman | Music: Brad Mehldau Trio, Django Django, Tiga, Moby
Celebrated around the globe for his originality and humor, Swedish choreographer Alexander Ekman brings his unique cinematic vision to the Joffrey. “An inspired joker and true man of the theater,” says the Chicago Sun-Times.
*Please note there is a strobe light effect in Joy.
Choreographer: Annabelle Lopez Ochoa | Music: Michael Gordon
Renowned for her improvisational skill, Annabelle Lopez Ochoa returns to the Joffrey with her spellbinding depiction of a turbulent cloud formation. “Sexy in an ambient way, embodying the impersonal attractions and repulsions that drive nature’s never-ending churn,” says Chicago Tribune.
