I've been going to see Joffrey performances for the past few years after getting a groupon with some girlfriends. It is so fun to see friends, go downtown and be in the beautiful Auditorium Theatre. The latest performance was a few weeks ago and I wish I could find it on video to share but all I could find was their preview video. There were three performances as part of their Contemporary Choreographers, some were better than other but overall I was so happy I got to see them, it was so inspiring!
For the past few years, I've gotten season tickets to the Joffrey Ballet with a group of girlfriends. It's 3 performances a season so not a huge commitment and it always feels like such a treat to go downtown and be inspired by something so outside of my normal day-to-day life. One of my friends couldn't to the last performance a few weeks ago so Matt came with us which was so fun! This was a perfect time for him to join us because this performance consisted of three pieces that were pretty modern. Below is a clip from After the Rain which we saw last year but still blew me away! The music is so beautiful and it's so romantic. This clip is from another company so not totally the same but you get the idea. The second clip is from Infra with music by Max Richter, very contemporary and featuring art by Julian Opie.
