Cincinnati Ballet’s 60th anniversary season concludes with Rep 5—Playlist, a collection of four one-act productions by groundbreaking artists.

Blake Works III is created by one of the world’s foremost choreographers, William Forsythe, set to the music of James Blake. The work follows in the footsteps of Blake Works I and II which have been called love letters to dancers and to the art of ballet itself.

Amy Seiwert, artistic director of Amy Seiwert’s Imagery, a contemporary ballet company in San Francisco, created It’s Not a Cry set to Jeff Buckley’s mesmerizing recording of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah.” The short work tells an emotional story about yearning for love.

Evermore by Dwight Rhoden, presents styles ranging from ballet to ballroom to Broadway and is set to the music of Nat King Cole. Rhoden is artistic director of Complexions Contemporary Ballet and has worked with and created for some of the most diverse artists spanning ballet and contemporary dance.

Rounding out the program is a world premiere by Peter Chu, an American dancer, choreographer and teacher known for pushing the physical bounds of dance.
