Pacific Northwest Ballet’s New Works, is a celebration of dance in three acts. And in honor of composer Johann Sebastian Bach’s 327th birthday, PBN is passing along a 20% savings for any of the remaining New Works performances, March 22, 23 and 24.

British choreographer David Dawson’s A Million Kisses to my Skin is his tribute to the complete bliss dancers sometimes experiences in their work, a feeling “just like that — a million simultaneous kisses to your skin.” Set to the music of JS Bach.

Annabelle Lopez Ochoa’s poignant Cylindrical Shadows extends the scope of an earlier piece she created in homage to the unexpected death of a close friend, a reflection on emotions linked to instantaneous loss.

In Mating Theory, Victor Quijada, founder of RUBBERBANDance Group, combines street-dancing with modern dance, classic and contemporary ballet, and “a combination of many influences, including capoeira, yoga, martial arts, and even theatrical improv. Quijada’s goal is “to forge an original work that promises a living demonstration” and “to make a new dance language, one that can tell new stories.”
