Delusional Beauty | Annabelle Lopez Ochoa

A restaging of the premiere work Annabelle created for The Washington Ballet in 2019 which draws inspiration from the surrealistic painting of Salvador Dali titled Femme à la tête de fleurs (Woman with a Head of Flowers).

“I’m always filled with gratitude when an older work gets revived. It sheds a light on who I was at the time and what my preoccupations were. It is exciting to see a new cast of dancers interpreting the work. Delusional Beauty is inspired by a painting by surrealist Salvador Dali “La femme à la tête de fleurs”. Paintings are a huge source of inspiration. I believe that each painting carries a soul. By bringing the characters of the painting into movement, I release them from their frozen state into the evanescent state of dance.”

Annabelle Lopez Ochoa

colōrem | Chanel DaSilva

A restaging of the 2022 world premiere by the Joffrey Ballet with music by Cristina Spinei.

Chanel DaSilva is an artist that is driven by strong conceptual ideas which she then translates with lots of emotions. It makes her dances visually arresting and human. She is an intelligent woman and I love her activism for moving the art form forward and make it more inclusive. Her work Colorem is an ensemble piece that requires commitment and tight togetherness of the dancers.

New Creation | Houston Thomas

Come back for more details about Houston Thomas’ world premiere new work with The Washington Ballet

Houston Thomas, is a young American choreographer who danced most of his career in Europe. His work is hyper-kinetic and deeply rooted in the classical ballet vocabulary. With this new voice, I want to challenge the TWB dancers with his high-demanding choreography.

Her wide-ranging body of work includes short conceptual pieces, full-length narratives, and dance films.

She has been creating new works and new forms ever since and is also frequently invited to teach.
