There’s a wedding in Denver, and everyone is invited to attend for the price of a ticket to Wonderbound’s latest show. Garrett Ammon, the company’s artistic director, has once again shown audiences the power of convergence in a city that is capable of creating something that’s at once quirky, accessible, and world-class—a rare treat that Denverites should squeeze into their ever-expanding array of cultural choices.
Wonderbound’s latest work, The Seven Deadly Sins, offers original, contemporary choreography performed with a primarily strings-based live accompaniment by a select handful of Colorado Symphony members.
