Spring Series 2017
April 26-May 7
Cayetano Soto (2017 Choreographic Fellowship Mentor), Tommie-Waheed Evans (2017 Choreographic Fellow), Jorma Elo


Praised for his “stunning originality” (The Huffington Post), Spanish choreographer Cayetano Soto will bring his work Schachmatt to BalletX for a company premiere at Spring Series 2017. Known for his highly technical and intense choreography, Soto has premiered work at such companies as Nederlands Dans Theater, Royal Ballet of Flanders, Ballet BC, and Aspen Santa Fe Ballet. Soto will mentor BalletX’s 2016-17 Choreographic Fellow, Tommie-Waheed Evans, who has worked as both a principal dancer and artist-in-residence with PHILADANCO!. His work infuses jazz with classical dance, investigating themes of social justice and his own African-American culture. The company will also reprise Jorma Elo’s Gran Partita, inspired by Orson Welles’ film-noir classic Touch of Evil, and originally premiered on BalletX at The Wilma Theater in 2014.
