Arts Ballet Theatre of Florida, under the direction of Ballet Master Vladimir Issaev ends its season with the world premiere of contemporary choreographer Edgar Anido’s piece “Fragmentos” and the return of Vladimir Issaev’s exciting neo-classical ballet “Shostakovich Suites”.

Arts Ballet Theatre’s professional corps of 13 dancers have spent the last weeks working on a very demanding and exciting repertoire before they pack their dancing gear to fly to Poznan in Poland where they will perform at the International Dancer’s Festival.

Shostakovich Suites is an exhilarating choreographic piece by Vladimir Issaev, inspired by the music of this Russian composer who was a revolutionary in contemporary composition while suffering the brutal despotism toward talented artists during Stalin’s era.

Fragmentos by Cuban choreographer Edgar Anido is a work that portraits part of Anido’s young memories, and the reflection of those memories on his present.

Edgar Anido is a dancer and choreographer based in New Jersey who currently works for Complexions Contemporary Ballet of New York. These pieces will be performed by the professional dancers of the company where principals Kaori Fukui, Jun Tanabe, Lillian Hill, Fan Shi and Kohhei Kuwana have the responsibilities of the main roles.
