Sunset, o639 Hours at Jacob’s Pillow
BalletX performs Matthew Neenan and Rosie Langabeer’s Sunset, o639 Hours (2014) at the Ted Shawn Theater at Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival, July 20-24, 2016.
This narrative evening-length work interprets the dramatic, true story of pilot Edwin Musick’s 1938 inaugural airmail flight across the Pacific. With stunning dancers and an onstage cabaret-style band, audiences will be transported by the rich sights and sounds of pre-World War II New Zealand, Samoa, and Hawaii through this beautiful and intensely personal narrative of loss, longing, and paradise.
BalletX will present an evening of love-themed choreography, including Slump by Joshua L. Peugh, Show Me by Matthew Neenan, and Malasangre by Cayetano Soto. The performance will take place at Mt. Gretna Playhouse, a stunning pavilion-style theatre surrounded by trees.Learn more
