“All these elements converged in a deft and stunning repudiation of much of what is going on in contemporary ballet today.”
Carla Escoda, Dance Europe
Each year Oakland Ballet commissions dynamic voices, both established and emerging to create with our artists. From Diaghilev Imagery, a reimagining of iconic ballet masterpieces, to OAKLAND-esque, a celebration of Oakland’s diverse talent, collaborations have been forged with organizations like Axis Dance Company, Vajra Voices, Oaktown Jazz Workshops, noted gospel choir director Nona Brown, and vocalist Tiffany Austin.
“The fact that the ensemble is a collection of experienced, exceptional dancers is made apparent in the tremendous way they deliver the various themes of the story — the theme of unity, in particular.”
Anoushka Agrawal, The Daily Californian
