Kiyon Gaines’ Interrupted Pri’si’zh’en

Kiyon Gaines’ Interrupted Pri’si’zh’en was first performed as part of PNB’s 2008 Choreographers’ Showcase. In addition to having his work performed at Bumbershoot, Mr. Gaines (a member of PNB’s corps de ballet) is creating his first repertory work for PNB, which will premiere in PNB’s November NEW WORKS repertory program. Interrupted Pri’si’zh’en will be performed by Batkhurel Bold, Benjamin Griffiths, James Moore, Jordan Pacciti, and Lucien Postlewaite.

Jonathan Porretta’s Lacrymosa

Jonathan Porretta joined Pacific Northwest Ballet as an apprentice in 1999. He was promoted to corps de ballet in 2000, to soloist in 2002 and to principal in 2005. Mr. Porretta has choreographed Duel, Flawless, and Jubilant for PNB’s 2004, 2005 and 2006 (respectively) Choreographers’ Showcases. Mr. Porretta’s Lacrymosa will be performed by Chalnessa Eames and Seth Orza.

Twyla Tharp’s Nine Sinatra Songs

The popular classic Nine Sinatra Songs, choreographed by American dance icon Twyla Tharp, returns for Bumbershoot. Nine Sinatra Songs features seven couples in a delicious ballroom homage to Ol’ Blue Eyes. The series of pas de deux will be danced by seven couples: Lesley Rausch and Stanko Milov, Ariana Lallone and Bakthurel Bold, Maria Chapman and James Moore, Carrie Imler and Jonathan Porretta, Carla Körbes and Jeffrey Stanton, Jodie Thomas and Josh Spell, and Kaori Nakamura and Olivier Wevers.
