American Repertory Ballet returns to State Theatre New Jersey this fall with a dazzling triple-bill. The program opens with Kirk Peterson’s The Eyes that Gently Touch, set to the driving rhythms of Philip Glass’ “Mad Rush” played live, culminating in a dance replete with romance and thrilling movement. Next is Mary Barton's Straight Up with a Twist (an ARB signature performance since its inception), a work set to the eclectic sounds of Kaila Flexer and Third Ear which showcases the versatility of ARB’s dancers and Barton’s choreographic genius. The performance concludes with another company premiere: Peterson’s Carmen. Based on Georges Bizet’s opera—performed with the Rutgers Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Kynan Johns—Peterson tells the tale of Carmen, a passionate, free-spirited woman, the fickle Don José and her love triangle between Don José and popular bullfighter Escamillo.
