Ballet 5:8 Presents Baptized Imagination at the Ames Center Nov. 4

November 4 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$28 – $48

Ballet 5:8 brings thrilling, honest and relevant ballet to Minnesota and will present Baptized Imagination at the Ames Center in Burnsville on Friday, November 4 at 7pm. Ballet 5:8 is a Chicago-based female and minority-led premiere ballet company recognized for remarkable artistic excellence, innovation and beauty. Led by Mexican American Artistic Director Julianna Rubio Slager, the company creates innovative and dynamic performances drawing from life, faith, current events and diverse perspectives that tell relevant stories of the 21st century.

Baptized Imagination is a breathtaking mixed bill with four original ballets by Julianna Rubio Slager and Matthew Rushing, Associate Artistic Director of Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, bringing world-class choreography and creative genius to Minnesota for the first time! The evening features two world premieres including Look to the East, a poetic and athletic exploration of the neo-classical form, inspired by the resurrection. Audiences will also enjoy two well-loved fan favorites – Día de Los Vivos and Gospel Impressions. Día de Los Vivos is a clever play on the Mexican Holiday Día de los Muertos and is a love letter addressing the topic of clinical depression. Gospel Impressions is inspired by artist Makoto Fujimura’s exquisite paintings, The Four Holy Gospels, with geometric movement illuminating the gospel stories further.

Be inspired by an evening of unparalleled artistry, athleticism and wonder with Ballet 5:8 at The Ames Center on Friday, November 4. Tickets are now on sale at: https://www.ames-center.com/baptized-imagination.html. Performance is perfect for family outings, date night and more!
