The Joffrey Ballet's Joffrey Studio Series, featuring a combination of live and prerecorded content, is premiering two new works that will be streamed live from the Joffrey's Gerald Arpino Black Box Theatre.
The new performances, created with the COVID-19 era in mind, are "Bolero," a performance choreographed by The Joffrey's Yoshihisa Arai for 15 Joffrey dancers, which will be livestreamed on the company's YouTube channel at 5 p.m. Feb. 12; and "Under the Tree's Voices," created by Joffrey Rehearsal Director Nicolas Blanc. Viewers will be able to watch the rehearsal process via livestream on Dec. 9 and Jan. 27, with future dates to be announced. Livestream dates are subject to change.
Other projects in the series include "Stage Notes," a collection of behind-the-scenes segments and content with commentary from the dancers, viewable on Dec. 14, Dec. 22, Feb. 11 and Feb. 25; "On Cue," which includes conversations about the state of dance from Joffrey artists, viewable Jan. 5 and Jan. 19. The company plans to feature the programs on The Joffrey's website, Facebook, YouTube and Instagram pages on the listed dates.
