Ajkun Ballet Theatre’s Newest Contemporary Ballet: “Revolution”
Since 2000, the Ajkun Ballet Theatre has brought some of the finest dancers to Albany for its annual three-week residency and performances at The Egg at the Empire State Plaza. The 2014 Ajkun Residency opens with a performance of Leonard Ajkun‘s newest contemporary ballet Revolution.
Revolution is about human power in surviving a post-apocalyptic world. Passion, hope and retribution will keep you stuck to your seat watching the protagonists altering the political landscape of the continent. In this post apocalyptical world of Ajkun, it is not the scenery or the shiny costumes, rather the dancers transforming before your eyes into wild animals, blood thirsty demons, desperate vagabonds and angelic visions.
The evening will also offer the opportunity to meet the members of the Ajkun Ballet Theatre, its residency community partners and artists.
