Ballet Memphis.

In celebration of Ballet Memphis' 20th year, founder and artistic director Dorothy Gunter Pugh asked Julia Adam to choreograph a ballet based on the short story "A Curtain of Green," by famed Southern writer Eudora Welty. Adam, whose choreography is known for its gorgeous distortion of classical vocabulary, has fertile material to work with: "Curtain" is a bittersweet narrative that explores themes of loss and raw human interaction. Also featured on the bill is Lila York's Breathless, an upbeat piece set to music by rock 'n roll star Jerry Lee Lewis. Oct. 7-8, Orpheum Theatre, Memphis, TN;
