Since its founding in 2005 by award-winning visionaries Christine Cox and Matthew Neenan, Philadelphia’s stellar BALLETX has expanded the vocabulary of classical dance to forge innovative new works of athleticism, emotion, and grace. The company’s world-class dancers collaborate with distinguished choreographers to create bold new dances. The Boston program includes Joshua L. Peugh’s Slump with music by Klezmer Juice, Yma Sumac, and Ella Fitzgerald; Amy Seiwert’s It’s Not a Cry with music by Jeff Buckley (cover of “Hallelujah” by Leonard Cohen); Jodie Gates’s Delicate Balance with music by Arvo Pärt, Henryk Gorecki, Gavin Bryars and David Lang, and Max Richter; and Matthew Neenan’s The Last Glass with music by Beirut.
