Gary Carpenter Bermuda Suite and Dolphin
Martinů La Revue de Cuisine
Sinfonia Viva return to the After Hours stage with a compact and agile ensemble in a vibrant mix of dance and jazz-infused pieces. British composer, Gary Carpenter, who has composed ballets for Nederlands Dans Theater as well as operas and film and TV music, takes us on a tropical journey with his Bermuda Suite and Dolphin for quintet.
Czech composer Bohuslav Martinů’s one act jazz-ballet tells the story of kitchen utensils behaving badly. Written in 2917, the dancers play a variety of cooking utensils which swagger their way through an episode of kitchen life. The four-movement suite from the ballet contains a sultry tango and a lively Charleston.
