Working with dancers from the Atlanta Ballet Fellowship Ensemble, Pablo Bronstein stages Plaza Minuet. Following pre-determined rules, dancers move across gridded lines marked on the floor to a basic minuet step. With some dancers performing Baroque ballet movements and others reworking those movements in language drawn from the Modernist repertoire, Plaza Minuet stages a collision between two choreographic traditions.
