Genesis

Feb. 7, 2013 7:30 p.m.

Genesis is a competition for choreographers, but those who witness it are truly the winners. Three finalists are handpicked by Michael Pink from around the world and challenged to choreograph a dynamic, cutting-edge new piece in three weeks. You, the audience, help select who will win the ultimate prize: the honor of returning to create another work for Milwaukee Ballet. This isn’t just an opportunity to change a talented choreographer’s life. It’s a chance to see boundaries pushed and rules broken. It’s a glimpse into what truly is the future of dance.
