Inhale the full range of human emotion through this modernized version of an ancient tale that re-visions and re-empowers female mythology—By a Thread is The Odyssey for our times. By a Thread shines a light on Penelope, known originally for her fidelity, living in the shadow of her husband, Odysseus.  This ballet reimagines her as a military wife who takes the reins to become a leader.

Original music composed by Ryan Cockerham.


London-based choreographer Marika Brussel is known for reshaping narratives to make ballet more resonant and relevant to audiences today.

Set in the competitive world of corporate law, Iago v. Othello examines Shakespeare's classic drama as told through a predetermined rat race for money, prestige, and power. When loyalties are betrayed in a system rigged against the outsider, Iago sets fire to her world as she brings those around her to their knees. Iago v. Othello is a ballet about the all encompassing seduction of revenge and survival of the fittest.

Original music composed by Ronald Corp and Marc DeSanctis

Aaron Thao is a Hmong American choreographer based in New York City and the Artistic Director of Hudson Ballet Theatre.

A three-hander, narrative work, choreographed and directed by Richard Bermange. This surreally absurdist and darkly rich comedy, inspired by Jean Genet’s Les Bonnes (The Maids), delves into the nuance and complex class and power dynamics, between the ‘Mistress’ and her two ‘Maids’. Spurred on by over zealous imagination and a propensity to ‘one up’ their counterpart, the maids concoct ever more complex and ingenious methods of ridding their lives of the burden of the overbearing Mistress, but where is the line between fantasy and premeditates murder? This character lead piece of dance theatre will challenge expectations and pose the question ‘Who is the real villain of the piece?’.
