Acclaimed Choreographer-in-Residence Claudia Schreier’s groundbreaking ballet to The Jungle (Symphony No. 4) by award-winning jazz musician Wynton Marsalis will take you on a journey through musicality and inventive movement that reflects the complexities, diversity and fast pace of modern city life. From the music and choreography to the art and costumes, city flair will take center stage in this world premiere. Through exclusive artistic collaborations with Atlanta-based muralist Charity Hamidullah and costume designer Abigail Dupree-Polston, Nighthawks will embrace colorful palettes, abstract imagery and cosmopolitan influences, presenting a visual and harmonious narrative steeped in emotion, relationships and life.

Brazilian artist Juliano Nunes, one of the world’s most sought-after young choreographers, will set his exhilarating new commission, Yellow, to one of the greatest piano sonatas of all time, Beethoven’s Piano Sonata No. 29 in B-Flat Major. The adagio tempo of the “Hammerklavier” will set the tone for Nunes’ distinctive, interconnected movement vocabulary, revealing minimal disturbances between the visual and the audible. Taking inspiration from the color yellow, its vibrancy and positivity, Nunes’ new work intertwines and reveals the different genres of his ideas. A classical transition into modern times, Yellow is a piece that reflects the growth, fluidity and continuation of life and relationships, highlighting the more we understand, the more we are able to progress.
