On The Move

On The MoveSee City Ballet in a way you have never seen them before, in our grand return to live, in-person performances! We welcome you back to the theater for a spectacular summer evening you will not soon forget. The opening program of City Ballet’s 29th Anniversary Season is for lovers of both classical and contemporary ballet.

Resident Choreographer Geoff Gonzalez offers his audience two world premieres in the company’s exciting return to live, in-person performances. The program includes: Unbroken, a testament to the resiliency of humankind and Within The Hourglass Desert, a piece highlighting the finite beauty of time.

“This program is a catalyst, to inspire us all to keep moving forward and to help restart the heart of the arts community in
San Diego.” – Resident Choreographer Geoff Gonzalez

Choreography: Geoff Gonzalez

A testament to the resiliency of humankind. Just as a pane of glass shatters under stress that exceeds the limit it can withhold – many of us have broken down by the stress of this past year. These remaining pieces, created by burdens too weighty to withstand, now reconfigure with newfound potential. We are the glass, broken but stronger now, like a mosaic amalgamating piece by broken piece, creating something altogether renewed – something more beautiful than before.

Within The Hourglass Desert                            
Choreography: Geoff Gonzalez

A piece highlighting the finite beauty of time. Inspired by poetry, each dancer embodies a grain of sand. Just as a singular piece of whittled down rock trickles its way through an hourglass, time can either feel expansive or cut too short. While a child looks towards the future and wishes it to move faster, an older soul looks back and yearns for it to slow down. Dancers themselves view it as a small window they have been gifted to move and create. We all share this one finite thing – time and the power we have to choose what we do with it.
