San Francisco Ballet

New Vision with Tamara Rojo and Aszure Barton

Sun, Oct 15, 3:00 pm & 7:30 pm

In her first season as San Francisco Ballet’s artistic director, Tamara Rojo will center cross-disciplinary and cross-cultural collaborations, celebrate the artists and histories of San Francisco, and spotlight women’s voices on stage and off. In this Works & Process program, go behind the scenes of the newly commissioned Mere Mortals, with music by Floating Points and choreography by Aszure Barton. Aiming to provide an immersive and visceral experience for the audience’s senses, the work will recontextualize the classic parable of Pandora’s box for our modern world and mark the first full-length work SF Ballet has commissioned from a female choreographer. Join Rojo and Barton as they discuss the creative process and how the work will take on the possibilities and consequences of artificial intelligence. Company dancers perform excerpts ahead of the ballet’s world premiere on January 26, 2024.

As part of the Fall 2023 Works & Process season, new artistic directors from American Ballet Theatre – Susan Jaffe (October 8), Dance Theatre of Harlem – Robert Garland (October 29 and 30), and San Francisco Ballet – Tamara Rojo (October 15) will be given a platform to share their visions.

Championing creative process from studio to stage, Works & Process amplifies support for performing artists and their artistic process, and simultaneously provides the public with behind-the-scenes access to new works, fostering greater understanding and appreciation. For an organization without walls like Works & Process, collaborations and partnerships are key to success, and we are proud that the fall 2023 season will be our largest fall ever. In a philosophy akin to farm to table, Works & Process LaunchPAD offers artists fully-funded creative residencies with 13 partners in 8 counties in New York and Massachusetts. This fall, Works & Process will also present programming at the Guggenheim Museum and the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, in partnership with the Jerome Robbins Dance Division, and seven Works & Process commissions created in Works & Process bubble and LaunchPAD residencies will tour to six states and the District of Columbia.
