The Atlanta Ballet's Wabi Sabi bids summer farewell at the Botanical Garden

Posted By on Wed, Sep 19, 2012 at 12:20 PM

Summer's coming to an end so it's time to get outside and enjoy all the things we love about the season before they totally slip away. Long sunsets, cold cocktails, evenings in the garden, and great outdoor performances are all at the top of our list.

Fortunately, it's possible get one last blast of all of the above at this week's Cocktails in the Garden event at the Atlanta Botanical Garden on Thursday evening, September 20, as the Atlanta Ballet's chamber group Wabi Sabi delivers another round of site-specific performances amid the orchids and Old-fashioneds. The performances are free with paid admission to the Garden, and the event includes one free drink, with more available for purchase. Cocktails begin at 6 p.m., with performances scheduled to start around 6:15 p.m.

The performance features five original pieces, including two by Atlanta Ballet principal dancers Tara Lee and Peng-Yu Chen. Also on the program are works by Nicole Jones, an Atlanta Ballet Fellowship dancer; Nathan Griswold, a former Atlanta Ballet dancer now with Germany’s Ballet Augsburg; and Gretchen Alterowitz, an associate professor of dance at the University of North Carolina-Charlotte. For more information, visit the Atlanta Botantical Garden.
