In a triumphant return to the stage after the pandemic, Moveius Contemporary Ballet offers three compelling dance works inspired by phenomena that elicit a sense of wonder: the cosmos, nature, and music. Diana Movius’ powerful choreography blends contemporary athleticism with ballet technique, highlighting the strength of the company’s DC-based professional dancers. The show opens with The Listener, a meditation on the joy that listening to music can bring. Following is Apocrita, a contemporary dance about the intense but short lives of ants, wasps, and bees. In a visually-enticing and high-energy finale, the ballet Star Struck is inspired by the early pictures of the earth taken from space in the Apollo missions, capturing the wonder of the cosmos.


Wonder is presented in conjunction with the Atlas Intersections Festival 2022
