About

City Ballet of Boston (CBB) and BoSoma Dance Company (BDC) present Side by Side, an evening of contemporary dance. This double-bill performance, conceived by CBB Artistic Director Anthony (Tony) Williams and BDC Artistic Director Katherine Hooper, offers a wide range of 21st century original and newly re-staged works. For these performances, BoSoma performs works by all-female choreographers Adrienne Hawkins, Jessica Flynn, Johanna Kepler, and Katherine Hooper. The works represent a range of lived experiences from the joy within the Black community, to massive life shifts due to Covid and other events, and inspiration from the idea of global travel.

City Ballet Boston opens their half of the performance with The Moors Pavane, choreographed by José Limón, and newly staged by Kurt Douglas in celebration of the Limón Dance Company's 75th Anniversary. Following is Respighi Variations, choreographed by Tony Williams in 1985 and refreshed for 2022.
