For 10 years, Post:Ballet has been at the cutting edge of interdisciplinary dance. Join us for a retrospective evening featuring live music by our collaborating composer, Daniel Berkman, and a trip down memory lane:
- Explore the artistic labyrinth of Post’s journey from Concert One to Season Ten
- Visit the ‘Colouring’ photo booth with visual artist Enrique Quintero and photographer Natalia Perez
- Review the fashion of Post:Ballet by designer Christian Squires
Experience our virtual reality dance film ‘Come Out to Lavender Country’ before its premiere at the SF Dance Film Festival
Be among the first to experience an excerpt of ‘Lyra,’ their newest co-production with The Living Earth Show featuring composer Samuel Adams and choreographer Vanessa Thiessen.
Also on the program is an encore performance from ‘Incandescent Body,’ Post’s recent sold-out collaboration with Star Amerasu.
After the performance and live auction, get down at our Post:Party, featuring music by DJ Jacqueen!
Support Post:Ballet as they celebrate how far they’ve come and look forward to what’s next.
Post:Ballet was founded in 2009 by Artistic Director Robert Dekkers, who was named “25 to Watch” by DANCE Magazine after the company’s inaugural season, with a vision to experiment with eclectic artists, using dance as a means for creative expression that takes chances, pushes boundaries, and challenges social norms.
Dekkers and Resident Choreographer Vanessa Thiessen take a collaborative approach to dance making that gives all of the artists involved the opportunity to contribute to the development of new work, resulting in productions that are “decidedly daring and always beautifully performed” (SF Arts Monthly). Integrating the company’s classically trained dancers with diverse artists including composers, animators, architects, cinematographers, fashion designers, and sculptors, Post:Ballet’s collaborations range from intensely intimate to wildly conceptual.
