Open to Stanford students, faculty, and staff
Stanford Dance and The Stanford Storytelling Project present Smuin Ballet performing Trey McIntyre’s Oh, Inverted World, choreographed to music from The Shins’ album “Oh, Inverted World.”
Join us for a special evening of storytelling through dance with Smuin Ballet. Fresh from its New York premiere and back by popular demand, Smuin Ballet presents an encore workshop performance of Oh, Inverted World at Stanford University. Smuin Ballet commissioned the riveting Oh, Inverted World from acclaimed choreographer Trey McIntyre. Set to music by indie-rock band The Shins, this dynamic piece received its world premiere in San Francisco in October 2010. An innovative fusion of McIntyre’s fresh, impulsive choreography and The Shins’ distinctive style, Oh, Inverted World is a mesmerizing and lingering work, called “action-packed” “striking” and “remarkable” by the New York Times.
This program is co-sponsored by Stanford Dance and The Stanford Storytelling Project.
