Paper Bird and Ballet Nouveau Colorado carry on with Carry On

"I'm really interested in finding the ways that past and present can naturally collide," says Ballet Nouveau Colorado choreographer Garrett Ammon of his new production, Carry On. "And this relationship with Paper Bird has worked so well because their music is incredibly respectful and reverent of the past without being tied down by it. Which is what we do with ballet. Our dancers are classically trained, but we only use that as a base for further exploration."

Carry On debuted in 2011 and earned raves; this year's version of Carry On (this Friday, September 7 at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House) promises a new evolution of music, dance and a special guest cellist.
