For the second program of its 43rd season, Pacific Northwest Ballet provides a crystal-ball look at the next generation of dance makers with EMERGENCE, a program of four contemporary works. PNB audiences have been counting the days until they could see Crystal Pite’s Emergence again, and PNB dancers have felt the same way. Kiyon Gaines’ Sum Stravinsky was another immediate favorite when it debuted in PNB’s 2012 ALL PREMIERE program. The Calling, a haunting work by choreographer Jessica Lang, artistic director of Jessica Lang Dance, receives its PNB season premiere, alongside Signature, a world premiere by PNB’s own Price Suddarth.


EMERGENCE plays for seven performances only, November 6 – 15 at McCaw Hall at Seattle CenterRunning time is approximately two hours and ten minutes, including two intermissions.

I hope you can join us!
