Ordway Music Theater
The Ordway presents a new dance piece by award-winning choreographer Myron Johnson and his company Ballet of the Dolls. Faith: A Dance for Life, is a world premiere ballet work based on one man’s dream and/or reality in the time required to take a singular breath. Created from the inspiration of a work performed in 1991, Faith explores the idea of a man who finds himself in a life-or-death situation; an encounter filled with surreal and haunting moments where faith is put to the test. Humorous and outrageous, Faith follows one man’s story in glimpses of life that range from the very beginning to his final conversations with his “maker.” In familiar Ballet of the Dolls’ fashion, this presentation uses an eclectic array of dance and musical styles including ballet, modern and hip-hop all set to classical, world and contemporary music. Myron’s work is being created specifically for this one-night-only performance at the Ordway.
