Bespoke brings a fresh mixed repertory program with three ballets never-before-seen on the Wortham Theater stage. Continuing the long-standing commitment to bringing Jiri Kylian’s work to Houston, the program opens with the Houston Ballet premiere of Kylian’s Overgrown Path. Set to the deeply moving score from composer Leoš Janáček, the work was created in 1980 for Nederlands Dance Theater in dedication to the legendary choreographer, Antony Tudor. Anchoring the program is another Houston Ballet premiere: Stanton Welch’s Bespoke. Created on San Francisco Ballet in 2018, set to a series of Johann Sebastian Bach’s violin concertos, the ballet explores dancers’ love for their art form and the fleeting cycle of being a performer, with motifs of time present throughout the piece. Joining the two Houston premieres is Australian choreographer Tim Harbour’s rhythmic, fast-paced Filigree and Shadow, taking the stage at the Company’s home theater for the first time after its debut during the Hometown Tour following Hurricane Harvey in 2018.
