ABOUT THE WORK
An energetic homage to Ravel’s iconic Boléro, Magadan’s choreography tells a story of the journey of transformations. The work serves as a reminder that powerful artistic expressions can awaken something within us that may lay dormant, activating the courage to continue the search for home in our ever-changing selves.
This work was made possible in part by a co-commission from the Vilar Performing Arts Center in Beaver Creek, CO.
