A Million Kisses to My Skin, choreographed by David Dawson, resident choreographer of the Dutch National Ballet.

"A classical piece with an edge, A Million Kisses to My Skin is a neoclassical ballet full of virtuoso technique with the aesthetics of the 21st century,” says Tulsa Ballet Artistic Director Marcello Angelini. Dance Europe said the work “inhabits a rarefied atmosphere while remaining accessible and appealing. Dawson gives the classical vocabulary a rebirth. Familiar steps, set against a formalist frame, take your breath away with their new-minted candor.”

Cripple and the Starfish, choreographed by Adam Hougland, principal choreographer for The Louisville Ballet

James Watts of the Tulsa World says, “Hougland’s Cripple and the Starfish is set to music by the band Antony and the Johnsons, and these plaintive, yet beautiful songs of doomed, transgressive love make a powerful backdrop for Hougland’s choreography, which makes the disturbing emotions of this music visceral and vibrant…those who are truly empathetic may find it devastating. It packs that sort of emotional wallop.”

Cacti, choreographed by Alexander Ekman

Ekman is known for his fast-paced timing, witty humor and clever transitions. His ballets have been performed by the Vienna Staatsoper, Boston Ballet, The Royal Swedish Ballet and many more. The Australian writes, “Ekman has pulled off one of the most difficult challenges in dance, which is to be genuinely funny. Cacti is a delight: witty, effervescent, playful, surreal and joyously physical.”
