In partnership with the Portland Ballet, we are pleased to present ORIGINS, a new work by internationally recognized dancer and choreographer Yury Yanowsky, whose professional performance career spanned two decades with Boston Ballet. He has set choreography for Boston Ballet, Boston Ballet II, and Festival Ballet Providence, along with other established companies and for international galas. In 2015 he won the Choreography Award in the prestigious Erik Bruhn Ballet Competition. The performance will feature Colby students on stage alongside the professional dancers of the Portland Ballet in a new work that was developed in Portland during Colby’s 2018 Jan Plan. Cosponsored by the Center for the Arts and Humanities. This performance is free and open to the public, but tickets must be reserved online.
This show is also being performed in Portland Feb. 9-10 and 16-17. For more information, and to purchase tickets, click here.
