TU Dance's 16th season opens at The O'Shaughnessy with an evening featuring two company premieres by Artistic Director Uri Sands.
Something Amber (2012), originally commissioned by Alonzo King LINES Ballet Training Program, is a full company work inspired by an illustrious string composition by neoclassical composer Vladimir Martynov. Tracks (2018), a full company work set to the legendary sounds of R&B music's The O'Jays and originally commissioned by Ailey II, references the markings, wounds, and scars that our history leaves on us, pathways created or followed in life, and the regimen of building railroad tracks; manual labor and the arduousness of continuing on despite life's challenges, in an effort to create better tomorrows.
The program also includes a reprisal of Sands's Salve (2017), originally commissioned by Ballet Memphis and set to the music of Gavin Bryars, a meditative work for eight dancers that illustrates the idea of healing through the simple action of coming together.
We have a special pricing system for this production. To better provide for equity and inclusion in our seating, your seat location is not determined by the price you pay.
You decide how much to pay for your ticket ($34, $30, or $24) and the system will assign the best seat available at that price. There are tickets at all price levels throughout the theater, so the relative quality of the seat will be determined more by how early you purchase your ticket than by what you choose to pay.
A production of this scale always costs more than ticket sales alone can cover, so we ask you to consider purchasing your tickets at the highest price you feel comfortable paying. Thank you!
