The Milwaukee Ballet and The Vitrolum Republic Partner for MXE Milwaukee Mixed

We are proud to announce that Isaac Sharratt of The Milwaukee Ballet will be choreographing 3 movements of dance to music off of our most recent album, For the Lovespun Ramblings and Ghosts in Our Shoes, as part of their MXE Milwaukee Mixed series at the Pabst Theater.

“Once per season, Milwaukee Ballet presents a dynamic program of new, contemporary work at the historic Pabst Theater. Bold, evocative, and captivating, this contemporary show highlights the athleticism and artistry of our dancers in the intimacy of the famous Milwaukee venue.”

“Watch what happens when the talents of five choreographers from Milwaukee Ballet’s Company fuse with a diverse group of local musicians. This Made-in-Milwaukee performance is the perfect mix of high octane energy, exhilarating music, and athletic dance.”

The show runs for 4 nights from Feb 8th to the 11th. Tickets can be found here.

To support the run, The Vitrolum Republic will be performing on 414 Music Live on 88Nine Radio Milwaukee on Feb 1st at 5PM. You can catch that show free in person at the 88Nine studio and on air.

We are excited Isaac has selected our music and we couldn’t be more thrilled about the collaboration!
