“Worlds to Come,” PNB’s last set of performances for its 50th Anniversary Season, streamed digitally June 15-19. The program, with its two world premieres and a live performance premiere, was one of the best I’ve seen at Pacific Northwest Ballet. All three choreographers are extraordinary storytellers—Edward Liang, Annabelle Lopez Ochoa, and Kiyon Ross—Liang and Ochoa celebrated for their powerfully thematic work, and, Ross, his exciting neoclassicism. I was moved by Ross’s thrilling, beautifully-structured piece—which I mention, too, in my Pacific Northwest Ballet’s Season Encore review. Unquestionably, he has his finger on the pulse of contemporary ballet—what it should be and where it’s going.
