From April 20-25 we were in San Francisco to cover San Francisco Ballet's massive festival "Unbound: A Festival of New Works." What happens when 12 of the most innovative international choreographers are given the opportunity to create with San Francisco Ballet's uniquely expressive and daring dancers? With this festival the company celebrated it's home city's spirit of curiosity, experimentation, and invention with 12 world premieres over 17 days.
While at San Francisco Ballet we conducted pre-performance talks with choreographers Justin Peck, Myles Thatcher, and Annabella Lopez Ochoa. We also sat down with other festival choreographers and SFB dancers to discuss their careers and work, and the ballets the San Francisco audiences were be treated to. We recorded a live podcast with San Francisco Ballet Principal dancer, Sofiane Sylve at SFMOMA on Monday April 23rd as a part of Words on Dance's UNBOUND:UNWOUND event that will be published on our podcast channel.
Over the next few months we will be sharing all these great interviews with you.
