An exuberant start to the season, Fall Works is a double feature including the work of Ohad Naharin, coming to Charlotte Ballet for the first time. Ohad’s Minus 16 has an eclectic score ranging between Dean Martin, mambo, techno and traditional Israeli music. Using improvisation and his signature “Gaga” method, Ohad crafts an experience with elements of spontaneity, while breaking down the barriers between the dancers and audience. Resident Choreographer Dwight Rhoden returns to present his ballet The Groove. Set to 1980s house music, this joyful party ballet is a fitting start to a season of celebration.
