Jumpin’ Jive kicks off Texture’s twelfth season, premiering two new works – a new creation by Alan Obuzor, set to big band and swing music, as well as a new piece by Madeline Kendall, set to music from the 50s, 60s, & 70s.  Returning for this performance is Obuzor’s Can Reality Acutely Create Knowledge, a 19-minute contemporary ballet for seven dancers, set to music by composer Max Richter and others.

Dive into music of the past and enjoy, as Texture brings it into the present – pairing it with fresh, exciting new movement!
