Kansas City Ballet presents Bliss Point – find the greatest pleasures with ballets by Mark Morris, Jiri Kylián and Alexander Ekman at the Kauffman Center May 12-21, 2023.
Mark Morris’ hip Sandpaper is an inventive pop ballet that teases your imagination with wit, humor, and dazzling movement.
Petite Mort, the tantalizing contemporary ballet by Jirí Kylián, returns to Kansas City Ballet and this popular masterpiece remains an absolute “must see.”
Alexander Ekman’s gleeful ballet, Cacti, pokes fun at the pretentious and often hilarious way that people interpret art. Don’t ask, “what does it all mean?” Experience it. Enjoy it.
