This mixed repertoire production features Chamberlain Performing Arts company dancers in several stirring works. Each show is highlighted by guest artists Texas Ballet Theater.
Being performed are contemporary tributes to fathers and grandfathers. “Veni Emmanuel” is a tribute to Artistic Director/Founder Kathy Chamberlain’s father. Choreographed by Lisa Hess Jones (former NYCB soloist), this beautiful work has been led by current Rockette Brittany Werthmann. Company member, and senior, Amit Katz makes her choreography debut for Chamberlain with “The Last Breath”, music by Hildur Gudnadottir. This beautiful tribute to her late grandfather has been an emotional outpouring for Amit, and her fellow company members are dedicated to honoring her cherished memories.
Bombshell Dance Project’s Emily Bernet and Taylor Rodham have choreographed “One Fell Swoop” which makes its debut at Focal Pointe. This powerful modern work is guaranteed to inspire and motivate. Alumna Katie Martin has poured her heart into “Green Valley”, music by Alt-J, as a cathartic expression of recent experience. “Lady Soubrette Waltz”, also choreographed by Hess Jones, is a gorgeous classical piece sure to delight and brighten hearts in the audience.
