The program will also feature short films and visuals by 3-time Emmy award-winning filmmaker/composer Dutch Rall. Ballets include Reveir (an adaptation of Chris Marker’s La Jetée), The Afternoon of a Faun (Ballets Russes production, 1912), Beyond the Reach of Time (inspired by Arthur C. Clarke’s 2001: A Space Odyssey), Circus Alius and Quantum Connectivity.
