Attitude on Santa Fe <p>Colorado Ballet will host two Attitude on Santa Fe performances featuring ballets choreographed and performed by Colorado Ballet Company dancers. The Attitude on September 8 will include the performance only and the Attitude on September 9 will include cocktails and dinner prior to the performance. The choreographers include Principal Dancers Domenico Luciano and Yosvani Ramos, and Corps de Ballet Dancers Arianna Ciccarelli and Kevin Hale.<br />This is the third season of Attitude on Santa Fe productions. Every performance of Attitude on Santa Fe has sold out.</p> <p>About the ballets:</p> <p>Domenico Luciano's new untitled ballet features a soundtrack by Michael Jones, who is rearranging a classical piece, Andante by Dmitri Shostakovich, with added sound effects and a five minute soundscape tailored to Luciano's choreography. The 10 minute work features five dancers and will explore the equality of gender. He says that this ballet will be very different from the previous two pieces he has choreographed for Attitude on Santa Fe. According to Luciano, "Male and female dancers will be dressed the same, dance the same phrase, have the same movement vocabulary, and most likely partner same gender in a duet. This will be very contemporary movement, low to the ground, abstract, not really focusing on lines and aesthetic but enhancing the physicality of the dancers."</p> <p>Yosvani Ramos created his ballet Steps in the Night in 2000 for the English National Ballet's Choreographic Workshop. The ballet will feature five female dancers and two male dancers. The music is the first two movements of Beethoven's 7th Symphony. "I have always wanted to do the whole 7th Symphony, which is in four movements, so the year after in 2001, I choreographed the second moment," said Ramos. "It's neoclassical with strong classical language and a lots of off-the-leg partnering and lifts. It has a sexy feeling to it."</p> <p>Arianna Ciccarelli's new ballet is a contemporary piece called What Could Have Been; An Unfinished Symphony. Ciccarelli said that she wanted to step out of her comfort zone and explore a different side of dance by choreographing a contemporary work first time. The ballet features two pieces of music: one is a four minute piano piece composed by Wesley Harper, a friend of Ciccarelli's; the second and last piece of music is Knee Play 4 composed by Philip Glass. "Even though there is no formal story line, I think that we all find/use a part of our lives to relate to the movement," said Ciccarelli. "I am very excited to share my experience of choreographing with my co-workers and of course with the audience!"</p> <p>Kevin Hale's new untitled work features eight dancers and is set to the music of Radiohead from their album “A Moon Shaped Pool.” According to Hale, “the ballet centers around a robot that is turned on for the first time and is learning everything quickly.” The robot quickly realizes more about life than it should. “When dropped with all the other robots, they start to have feelings and subsequently their glitches start to appear,” said Hale.</p> America/North_Dakota/Center
