“We’re flipping the whole story.”


Choreographer Stephanie Martinez explores the concepts of masculinity and femininity in Shakespeare’s iconic couples for her brand new Innovative Works collaboration. See it for yourself, Jan 25-Feb 16.

Also premiering at Innovative Works is a new ballet by Peter Chu, in collaboration with Robinson Distinguished Professor of Shakespeare Andrew Hartley, that dives into Hamlet’s dramaturgical shift throughout the play.

Join us after the show to discuss these thought provoking pieces during a dessert reception with the dancers and artistic staff, open to every audience member.
