Christopher Caines Dance presents its 2019 season, featuring the premiere of: 
listen out loud / move to keep things whole

“One of the most musically erudite and articulate dance-makers around.”—The New Yorker
A dance celebrating the company's ballerinas, exploring themes of girlhood aspiring to womanhood, women’s intimacies and solitude, their brave vulnerability, their everyday heroism—how, in words by the poet Mark Strand that inspires one of the ballet’s musical scores, they “move to keep things whole.” A new ballet suitable for audiences of all ages—including aspiring young ballerinas!
