Four innovative premieres by renowned TRBP Resident Artists and internationally acclaimed Guest Choreographers. DEBUTS delivers world class dance straight to the heart of San Diego. 


The grand finale to our 2022 Season: Interplay: DEBUTS, captures four distinct choreographic voices, each uniquely different yet connected in their uninhibited approach. TRBP’s season finale program presents World Premieres by brilliant Resident Artists Katie Spagnolletti and Jeremy Zapanta, as well as a World Premiere by Guest Choreographer, Myles Thatcher, Soloist and Choreographer with San Francisco Ballet, and a San Diego premiere of SEXTETTE by Dance Magazine's 25 To Watch and TRBP Guest Choreographer, Katarzyna Skarpetowska

DEBUTS exemplifies TRBP’s dedication to elevate and enrich the arts in San Diego through the creation of exciting, fresh, and intimate opportunities to experience superlative live performance art for artists and audiences alike. This final program will be presented under the stars in an indoor/outdoor theater housed at the Mingei International Museum: La Atalaya Foundation Theater in the heart of Balboa Park.
