An interview with Garrett Smith.
Smith, a former member of the Houston Ballet and now a member of the Norwegian National Ballet, has come back to the city where he launched his professional career as a dancer. This time he's here as a choreographer. His new work, part of the Four Premieres concert by Houston Ballet, is an appropriately named work, Return. "Did everybody get that?" Smith laughs.
Set to music by John Adams, Return features six male and six female dancers as a group of teens who find a secret place. "It's abstract with a narrative stream through it," Smith tells us. "While they're there they have a fun time with one another. Other than that, I've keep it abstract ... so that people can bring their own interpretation to it."
