Ballet22 presents a new take on Ramón Oller's critically acclaimed Carmen. Reimagined on the artists of Ballet22, Ramón has taken his Carmen to new heights, introducing pointe shoes and a cast of all mxn to this beloved ballet. The program will conclude with a world premiere choreographed by Ramón Oller. Join us for this unique double bill!
Ballet22 cast returns to the Bay for this spectacular program. These artists are challenging gender stereotypes and rebuilding what it is to be a ballet dancer en pointe.
Founded in 2020 by Roberto Vega Ortiz and Theresa Knudson, Ballet22 exists to push the boundaries of what is possible in ballet while focusing on producing and presenting works, ranging from classical to contemporary ballet, that break gender normative traditions, specifically by presenting men, mxn, and non-binary artists "en pointe." Ballet22 is a member of Intersection for the Arts, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
