JSB invites all who are a part of the Minnesota dance community to join us at the O’Shaughnessy this weekend, with discount code FRIENDOFJSB for $25 tickets!

James Sewell Ballet leaps onto the stage with bold new works!

Pointed Humor features the highly-anticipated choreographies of two guest choreographers and old friends of the company. Shohei Iwahama (former James Sewell Ballet dancer and current member of Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo) brings an expansive group work that emanates curiosity, play, and kinship. Michael Walters returns with his fourth choreographic commission for James Sewell Ballet with a passionate duet, at moments both gritty and gentle.

This remarkable evening includes two Sewell works: a new sextet that blends classical and contemporary ballet within Bach’s Concerto for Violin & Oboe; and a remount of Doo-Be-Doo, which combines high-energy playful antics with stunning technical feats.

Saturday, April 13 at 7:30pm
Sunday, April 14 at 2:00pm

The approximate run time of the event is 105 minutes with a fifteen minute intermission.
