Usually, the elongated lines and buoyant leaps of Boston Ballet dancers are preserved for view at the large, downtown Opera House. “BB@home,” however, allows patrons to be just feet from the action.
During this series, Boston Ballet company members perform at their South End rehearsal studio in a black box theater setting. Over two weekends in February, “BB@home” will focus on showcasing choreography by company members and providing a sneak peek of upcoming work.
“BBII@home,” will take place on Feb. 7 and 8. Boston Ballet II, Boston Ballet’s two-year program comprised of younger dancers, will present old and new works, including one work of choreography by a Boston Ballet company member and another by a BBII member.
On Feb. 22 and 23, the performances will serve as a preview of “Full on Forsythe,” Boston Ballet’s upcoming program at the Opera House. Following the sneak peek, artistic director Mikko Nissinen, choreographer William Forsythe, and dancers will engage in a conversation with the audience.
Tickets for these performances are now on sale on the Boston Ballet website.
