After sitting down and talking with Nowell, Ammon attended a Baroque Chamber Orchestra performance. “What really struck me was that a lot of people — just like when they hear the word ‘ballet’ — might have pre-conceived notions of what [the Orchestra] is," he says. "I was really struck by how incredibly alive and fresh their approach is to the music that they play.”
The result is A Dangerous Liaison, a dance performance in two parts featuring music by Vivaldi and Tartini and choreographed by company dancer/choreographer Sarah Tallman and Ammon himself.
A Dangerous Liaison opens tonight at 7:30 p.m. at the PACE Center, 20000 Pikes Peak Avenue in Parker, and continues tomorrow at 2 p.m.; you can also catch the performance Friday, November 9, through Sunday, November 11, at the Performing Arts Complex at Pinnacle Charter School, 1001 West 84th Avenue.
