The Joffrey Ballet celebrates its 20th anniversary of calling Chicago home in the 2014-15 season. Artistic Director Ashley Wheater opens the season with “Stories in Motion,” a special one-weekend-only addition to the Joffrey’s usual three-program subscription season. This program, exploring the concept of “story ballet” with works that each tell a story in a freshly conceived way, features the return of two Joffrey repertory favorites, George Balanchine’s Prodigal Son and Antony Tudor’s Lilac Garden, along with the Joffrey/Chicago Premiere of Yuri Possokhov’s Asian-themed RAkU.
The Joffrey presents “Stories in Motion” in five performances only at the Auditorium Theatre of Roosevelt University, 50 East Congress Parkway, September 18 – 21.
The Joffrey Ballet performs “Stories in Motion” Thursday and Friday, September 18 and 19 at 7:30 pm; Saturday, September 20 at 2 pm and 7:30 pm; and Sunday, September 21 at 2 pm.
