Woman of Dance

American Repertory Ballet is proud to celebrate 15 years of Mary Barton’s stunning choreography by showcasing three of her most recognized works. The evening’s performance features Scarlet Sonata, a scintillating, technically challenging work for five women; Five Men and a Concerto, a work for five men which highlights the male form, set to the strong drive and melody of Vivaldi’s Concerto for Oboe; and Straight Up with a Twist (an ARB signature performance since its inception), a work set to the eclectic sounds of Kaila Flexer and Third Ear which showcases the versatility of ARB’s dancers and Barton’s choreographic genius. Barton has taught at Rider University since 2002, and has been ARB’s Resident Choreographer for seven years.
