Gustavo Ramírez Sansano at Ballet X Summer Series 2022

Spanish choreographer Gustavo Ramírez Sansano comes back to the U.S. for a collaboration at the Summer Series 2022 by BalletX, with a work were Bert Kaempfert’s music sets the mood.

The Wilma Theater welcomes back BalletX for a week-long performance series featuring world premieres by three of today’s most well-known choreographers: Tiler Peck, New York City Ballet; Gustavo Ramirez Sansano, director of TITOYAYA; and Jamar Roberts, resident choreographer of Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater.

The Spanish choreographer returns after his hit BalletX Beyond film, Hernando’s Hideaway, with a work set to the music of jazz legend Bert Kaempfert and inspired by the famed saying “Love has no cure, but it is the only medicine for all ills.”
