Smuin's 'Dance Series 02' comes to Mountain View


Smuin, the contemporary ballet company, will close its season with performances of "Dance Series 02," including the world premiere of the whimsical "If I Were a Sushi Roll" by choreographer Val Caniparoli, which features the music of American contemporary classical composer Nico Muhly and Faroese singer/songwriter Teitur, with lyrics based on YouTube videos. "Oasis," a collaboration between Helen Pickett and "House of Cards" composer Jeff Beal, celebrates water in all its forms, while "Falling Up" by Amy Seiwert, which explores trust between partners and is set to a Brahms piano score, returns to Smuin for the first time since its debut a decade ago.

Seiwert will soon be leaving her post as Smuin's choreographer-in-residence to become Sacramento Ballet's artistic director.

"Dance Series 02" will be performed at the Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts (500 Castro St.) May 24-27, Thursday-Saturday at 8 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday at 2 p.m. Tickets are $56-$72. Go to Smuin.
