Tears of the Moon, choreography by Kirk Peterson Pas de Deux from Ephemeral Possessions, choreography by Douglas Martin Airs, choreography by Paul Taylor (company premiere)

Fulfilling his long-held desire to create a work to music by Beethoven, Kirk Peterson created Tears of the Moon on ARB dancers in 2013, when he felt he "now had the maturity and experience as an artist to explore the possibilities of dance to the master's work." A delicately emotional piece, Tears of the Moon features a range of movements – from highly technical, quick footwork to a lush and emotional pas de deux.

Pas de Deux, from Douglas Martin's Ephemeral Possessions, is set to music by Samuel Barber. Celebrating the legacy of the American Master choreographer Paul Taylor, ARB presents the company premiere of Paul Taylor's Airs, set to music by G.F. Handel.
