BalletX kicks off its 12th season with the return of Nicolo Fonte’s Beautiful Decay. Inspired by a series of Mark Goleblowski’s 3-D photographs of exotic flowers, Beautiful Decay takes audiences on an intimate journey exploring the connection between memory and aging, intertwining the company’s 10 dancers with two senior dance artists. Hailed by The Dance Journal as “explosive, athletic dance,” and a “sophisticated meditation on the passing of time,” the work features original sets designed by Mimi Lien (Tony Award Winner, 2015 MacArthur Fellow) and music from Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, Max Richter, and Olafur Arnalds. Fonte has won critical acclaim for his ballets created on companies around the world, including Les Ballets de Monte Carlo, Finnish National Ballet, and Dutch National Ballet, among many others.
