State Street Ballet ended its latest season on a high note with Other Voices at the Lobero.

It was a captivating blend showcasing the talents of choreographers who pushed boundaries, redefining the art of dance. A sweeping panorama of innovation.

The productions were as thought provoking as they were entertaining.

The show featured four short works – “Corelli’s Concerto” by Nilas Martins, “The S.I.T.” by Royce Zackery, “A Warm Window” by Nicole Powell, and “As We Always Have” by Laurie Eisenhower, last performed by State Street in 2019, and a popular longer work, “Common Ground,” first performed at the Lobero in 2015 and last staged in 2017 at the International Ballet Gala in Santiago, Chile, with choreography by Edgar Zendejas set to Max Richter’s enchanting re-composition of Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons exploring evolutions, changes, and life’s winding paths.

Next season can’t come soon enough…
