PETER BOAL'S ANNUAL SELECTION offers audiences a riveting duet, a favorite work, a little controversy, and a world premiere by PNB dancer Ezra Thomson. The limbs of a bonded pair sculpt open air in Slingerland Duet, and pure athleticism surges like reverb from Red Angels' electric violin. Audiences have another chance to debate William Forsythe's contrapuntal One Flat Thing, reproduced, as the dancers take cues from each other on, under, and around 20 tables.
