Smuin Contemporary American Ballet is one of the city's true cultural jewels, and it continues to shine brightly during its 23nd season, with cutting-edge pieces like choreographer Trey McIntyre's world premiere Summer of Love, honoring the 50th anniversary of the social phenomenon that's helped shape San Francisco and its culture ever since. At Dance Series 02, you'll also see Choreographer in Residence Amy Seiwert's Broken Open. Featuring 16 dancers, the San Francisco Chronicle pronounced it "fresh, challenging and relevant" after its 2015 debut. Then, see the world premiere of a new work celebrating the joy of dance, set to a classical score, by up-and-coming dancer/choreographer Nicole Haskins, whose recent work Fantasia was also praised by the Chronicle, who declared it "enchanting." Experience Smuin at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts.
