The Atlanta Ballet’s Wabi Sabi has a series of performances coming up during the next month. Created by Atlanta Ballet dancer John Welker four years ago, Wabi Sabi expands the boundaries of dance through the creation of new works by emerging choreographers, then presenting them in up-close-and-personal ways in venues not usually associated with dance. Each is an unique experience.

If you are new to Wabi Sabi, you may want to interact with this exciting young company at the upcoming free performance August 21 at the High Museum. Other options are August 1 at Sautee Nacoochee, August 23 at Serenbe, August 14-15 when the company collaborates with Backside of the Tent Productions at the Historic Rhodes Theatre. You will have a chance to see the company and the beautiful home of the Atlanta Ballet at the Atlanta Ballet Block Party August 29 at the Carlos Center. You can find out more or purchase tickets at the Atlanta Ballet website.

Are you out of town for the summer? You’ll have another chance to see Wabi Sabi November 6 at the High Museum on November 6.
