This ballet is inspired by Justin Dello Joio’s Due Per Due: Elegia to an Old Musician and Norman Dello Joio’s Prelude: To a Young Musician. In exploring the relationship between fathers and sons, I have juxtaposed the Prelude and the Elegia, using a style of interpolation (if you will, a collage of music) that I have used to reveal the humanity in the relationships. –jb


The creation and presentation of We are All....Our Father's Sons is made possible, in part, with public funding from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, and the New York State Council on the Arts, with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, and with the generous support of The O’Donnell Green Music and Dance Foundation, The Shubert Foundation, and The Harkness Foundation for Dance.
