Diverse Dance

MOMENTUM features the dancers of our second company, MBII program. This show presents some of ballet’s most classical repertoire with work by August Bournonville as well as brand new work from international choreographers Kathryn Posin, Mimmo Miccolis, Timothy O’Donnell and Kristopher Estes-Brown. Their work delves into topics as wide ranging as climate change to forbidden love. Our MBII program is in its 40th anniversary season and this is the first time the MBIIs have performed an entire program on the historic Pabst Theater stage.
