Joffrey Ballet Comes to UC Berkeley

The Joffrey Ballet will perform three works demonstrating its artistic breadth: Marin County native Edwaard Liang’s sumptuous Age of Innocence (2008), a Joffrey commission set to music by Philip Glass and Thomas Newman; Christopher Wheeldon’s inventive After the Rain (2005) to music by Arvo Pärt; and Kurt Jooss’s The Green Table (1932), a pacifist work depicting the corruption of war, set to music by F. A. Cohen. The Green Table is featured in the 2011 documentary Joffrey: Mavericks of American Dance.

Pre-performance talks scheduled in the performance venue one hour before curtain provide enjoyable insights to your experience. These half-hour talks are free to event ticket holders.
