On Sunday, March 2nd, Ballet 5:8 is excited to present a full evening program at the Beverly Arts Center in Chicago's south side. The single performance at Beverly Arts will take place at 6:00pm and is part of the SPRING SERIES with performances in Fort Wayne, IN, Chicago, IL and Spring Arbor, MI.
The evening's second act will include the Chicago premiere of Ballet 5:8's full length neoclassical ballet, The Story of Job, a ballet created by Artistic Director Julianna Slager in and for the present day. Job uses a modern-day retelling of the Biblical story to explore the question of suffering.
The evening's first act will include a collection of short pieces by Ballet 5:8 and Tapestry Dance Company, a Chicago contemporary company directed by Sarah Rabbers. Ballet 5:8 will present Proverbs, a pretty ballet inspired by the nuggets of truth found in Scripture, and Indwelling, which explores the tension between the "Old Man" and the "New Man" in the life of the believer. Tapestry will present Sementa de Fé, derived from the parable of the sower in Luke 8, as well as Change Is and Go Do.
Seating at the Beverly Arts Center is reserved. Tickets are available online here or by calling 1-800-838-3006.
