Three diverse companies—State Street Ballet, Detroit’s Eisenhower Dance, and Montreal’s ezdanza—bring classical and contemporary styles together to create something stunningly original. Charles Donelan of the Santa Barbara Independent describes it as “choreography that rejects the assumption that dancers on pointe can’t mix with other kinds of movers.”


Visionary choreographer Edgar Zendejas was inspired by Max Richter’s recomposition of Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons, and built Common Ground around it. “Interaction with others happens from the moment we are born, always changing and always moving, starting from the new to the old in every relationship,” Zendejas explained. “In Common Ground, we explore the change of seasons within each one of us.” Zendajas has accomplished that in his choreography by showcasing the uniqueness of each company individually and in unison, with the stage shared by all three, creating a new vision through the common language of dance.
