Return to Nashville Ballet

Carlos Pons Guerra has been invited to create his second work for Nashville Ballet, as part of the company’s Attitude Programme.

Following Together Clinging, the duet Carlos created for artistic director Paul Vasterling’s 20th Anniversary Gala, Carlos will be creating a new group work for Attitude: Other Voices, in which “a collection of choreographers known for pushing the envelope explore gender identity and stereotypes will create a series of groundbreaking new works. These artists take ballet beyond the boundary of what is traditionally expected as they reflect on what it means to be a man or woman, how gender affects one’s existence and more.”

Nashville Ballet’s 2019/20 Season, which was recently announced, will present a collection of new works and poignant classics, raising a mirror to society in an exploration of perceptions, standards and stereotypes. Through thought-provoking, entertaining programming, the 2019-2020 season promises to captivate, educate and spark meaningful conversations. The season will feature works by choreographers including Vasterling, Lopez Ochoa, Wheeldon and Bruce.

Carlos’ new work will premiere at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center on February 14, 2020, in a programme with new works by Jennifer Archibald, Mathew Neenan and Erin Kouwe.
