JAMES SEWELL BALLET: Leaving Gravity at the Door

On December 28, the ballet troupe the New York Times calls “the company to see” opens the Warren Miller Debut Season. Founded two decades ago in New York to perform innovative work that explores the technical boundaries of ballet, choreographer and co-founder James Sewell has been called “one of American ballet’s most inventive choreographers.” An incredibly versatile dance-maker, Sewell’s works range from comic reenactments of Garrison Keillor’s “Guy Noir, Private Eye” family-friendly renditions of Miss Spider’s Tea, to contemporary works that explore music and movement with boundary-breaking excitement. Prepare to be astounded and inspired as this company opens the WMPAC 2013-2014 season with leaps and bounds.
