Smuin concludes its quarter-century celebration with a smashing world premiere by master dancemaker Amy Seiwert, set to the empowering a cappella soundtrack of Oakland’s very own Kitka Women's Vocal Ensemble. After ten years as the Company’s Choreographer-in-Residence, Seiwert returns to help Smuin celebrate its milestone 25th season with this groundbreaking work, loosely inspired by the 385-mile protest wall of women in India on New Year’s Day 2019. Also on the bill is The Best of Smuin, featuring the return of timeless Michael Smuin favorites such as Unforgettable, Foolish Things, and the red-hot chair solo Fever from Smuin’s inaugural program. Along with highlights from Carmina Burana, Dancin’ With Gershwin, and Frankie and Johnny, this showcase of classics is packed with the ol’ razzle-dazzle, visually stunning effects, and Smuin’s trademark twists.
