In addition to Firebird, CIDE will perform Qiu Yie, choreographed by Tong Wang, former Butler professor and currently Professor at UC Ir-ving; Evacuees, choreographed by former New York City ballerina Lisa de Ribere and lastly, Colorimetry, choreographed by Pacific Northwest Ballet dancer and alum of CIDE, Price Suddarth.
