Little mortal jump (2012)

Son of Chamber Symphony
by Stanton Welch
The Joffrey Ballet
John Adams’ deconstructed music led Mr. Welch to take standard ballet traditions, turn them inside out and evolve them into new ideas. It is technically challenging, intellectual and sensual. The dance can be enjoyed as a visual enhancement of the score, for the physical achievements of the dancers, or entertainingly to spot the short quotes or allusions to familiar works.
