Compass | Quad Cities

  • Scottish Rite Cathedral 1800 7th Avenue Moline, IL, 61265 United States (map)

Ballet 5:8’s Compass features four one-act ballets inspired by the challenges of navigating cultural tension in the present day. From an alien society to 1970’s Chicago, Compass stretches across time and space to explore some of our country’s most pressing topics. At times witty and satirical, and at times deeply emotional, Compass is full of athleticism, power and poetry. Audiences are invited to a post-show TalkBack panel discussion with Ballet 5:8 Artistic Director Julianna Slager and artists of the company.
