Tulsa Ballet's own Ma Cong was named one of the "25 to Watch" by Dance Magazine for both his dancing and his choreography. The unique choreographic style of this Tulsa favorite dance maker is rooted in both in his classical and neo-classical experience with Tulsa Ballet as well as his early training in Chinese dance. This year, Cong was inspired by an oil painting he found in Portugal to create his piece Memorias del Viento, translated "Memories of the Wind."
"I was immediately drawn to this image of a woman on a hill watching her husband down by the beach preparing to go fishing to support his family," Cong said. "There was great physical distance between them, but you could see in her eyes that their love and emotional connection was strong. Tulsa audiences really appreciate different cultures so I wanted to bring that culture and that beautiful connection to life in my choreography."
Four couples dance to Spanish music by Bia, Ojos de Brujo and Yesmin. The movements are inspired by Mediterranean folk dancing with an organic, earthy interpretation.
"Ma Cong has created another masterpiece for Tulsa Ballet," Artistic Director Marcello Angelini said. "It has been so much fun seeing this dance maker come into his own, transforming his natural talent into the necessary skills to make a work coherent and captivating from beginning to end. His career as a choreographer is taking off. He is creating works for companies nationally and internationally. I am proud to have promoted his growth as a choreographer and to boast, in the repertory of Tulsa Ballet, a large body of work from this uniquely talented young choreographer."
All performances (April 27 - May 6) will take place at Tulsa Ballet's Studio K in Brookside (1212 East 45th Place South). For tickets, please call (918) 749-6006 or visit us online at www.tulsaballet.org.
