Program II, April 16, 17 and 19 at GRB’s Peter Martin Wege Theatre, will kick off with “Tomorrow Never Comes,” a new ballet by GRB star dancer/choreographer Yuka Oba. The 12-minute ballet for twelve dancers set to music by A Hawk and A Hacksaw, Yann Tiersen and Dead Can Dance, says Oba, was inspired by a general feeling of dissatisfaction she noticed from young people about their prospects in life.
