ODC/DANCE

The Argyros

ODC (Oberlin Dance Collective) was founded in 1971 by Artistic Director Brenda Way. Brenda, who trained under the legendary George Balanchine, moved ODC to San Francisco in 1976, aiming to ground the company in a dynamic and pluralistic urban setting. ODC was one of the first American companies to return, after a decade of pedestrian exploration, to virtuosic technique in contemporary dance and to commit major resources to interdisciplinary collaboration, including musical commissions, for the repertory. ODC performs its imaginative repertory for more than 50,000 people annually. The company has long been recognized for its rigorous technique as well as its wide ranging collaborations with other artists. In 2024, Brenda was inducted into the California Hall of Fame with a class that included other luminaries such as Ava DuVernay, Los Lobos, and The Go-Gos. The Argyros is honored to welcome this groundbreaking company and its visionary leader back to Ketchum!

Barcelona Flamenco Ballet • CARMEN

The Argyros

Barcelona Flamenco Ballet address the ever-present myth of “Carmen” in their new project. This new recreation of Bizet’s work brings new elements from flamenco that were previously unknown. It goes beyond the traditional conception in which it has historically been categorized and adapts it to the reality of today’s contemporary society. “Carmen” is pain, passion, and a cry for freedom - feelings that flamenco art masterfully represents in its wildest and most primitive aspect. Barcelona Flamenco Ballet tells the story written by Prosper Mérimée delving into the love affair between Carmen, the gypsy, and Escamillo, the bullfighter. Here, too, the flamenco language is the best vehicle of artistic expression to exhibit emotions and is the perfect driving force to convey the passion of the protagonists.
