Choreography Yoshiaki Nakano

Music Felix Mendelssohn Symphony No. 1 in C Minor, Op. 11: III. Scherzo

Franz Shubert Die schöne Müllerin, Op. 25, D. 795


Described as “lively and detailed,” Nakano’s classical-leaning choreographic style is based in a keenly observed understanding of the strengths of his fellow dancers. With Infusion he plumbs his own expressive powers with the goal of creating a physical version of the music for the stage. Nakano’s recent works include A Fellow Feeling, a 2016 work for PBT, and The Symphony, created in 2017 for PBT School.
