first in an exciting new series of original work by sought-after young choreographers

A sense of making places, and taking you places, is what you'll experience in this first installment where choreographers explore the past, present and future of place through an entirely new lens of dance. Featuring the work of Joshua L. Peugh, Jennifer Archibald and Gabrielle Lamb. Places marks the first time Peugh and Archibald will work with Ballet Memphis; they will take on “Present” and “Past,” respectively. Lamb will return to Ballet Memphis for a third time and takes on “Future” in her work.

There are four seating options—Premiere ($72), A ($43), B ($22) and C (just $10.)
