- BALLET 5:8 AUDIENCE MEMBERS
An Electric and Varied Evening of Dance with Something for Everyone
Ballet 5:8's mixed contemporary program includes ballets Four Seasons of the Soul, Indwelling and Sigao Ekklesia. The technically stunning, neoclassical Four Seasons portrays the four seasons of life with a remarkable, deep connection between the dancers and the audience. Indwelling presents a keenly applicable picture of the struggle between good and evil within, and in Sigao, the dancers embark on a raw and relatable struggle with some of religion's biggest challenges.
