11/6-11/16 - Since becoming artistic director of the Pacific Northwest Ballet in 2005, Peter Boal has earned a reputation for introducing audiences to bold new flavors of dance. And while some viewers prefer knowing exactly what to expect (like diners who always choose the same restaurant), most have embraced the surprise and spice he has injected into the menu. Boal continues his innovative programming with New Works, a mixed bill that includes two world premieres (“M-Pulse,” by PNB company dancer Kiyon Gaines and “Three Movements,” by New York City Ballet principal dancer Benjamin Millepied) and one notable PNB premiere: “A Garden,” the latest and some say greatest by local-boy-made-good Mark Morris. Rounding out the eclectic program is “One Flat Thing,” by architectural choreographer William Forsythe (presented at PNB last spring in the Director’s Choice showcase), in which dancers tumble and twist over, under, around and seemingly right through 20 tables in an original, thrilling and thundering pageant. Times and prices vary. McCaw Hall, 321 Mercer St.; 206.441.2424;
