The Space in Between | Grand Rapids

  • Devos Center for Arts & Worship 2300 Plymouth Avenue Southeast Grand Rapids, MI, 49506 United States (map)

Ballet 5:8 invites you to experience a riveting evening of dance featuring two one-act ballets. Julianna Rubio Slager’s world premiere The Space in Between is set on a bus ride between heaven and hell, a story inspired by C. S. Lewis’ novel The Great Divorce. Slager’s Four Seasons of the Soul, a Ballet 5:8 audience favorite, explores how the turning seasons in nature parallel the recurring themes of human life.

Ballet 5:8 has been called “spectacular and mature” by the Elgin Review’s Jeffrey Pierce, and Slager’s choreography “consistently imaginative” by Ken Norris of WKTV Journal in Grand Rapids. In Chicago, Kristi Licera of called Ballet 5:8’s Compass “an evening of inspired choreography and thought-provoking performance,” and Kristian Jamie of March Magazine, San Antonio, called Ballet 5:8’s Scarlet an “effortless” adaptation of classic literature.
