Denver contemporary ballet company Wonderbound (formerly Ballet Nouveau Colorado) has become something of a hub for collaborations in the Mile High City. They first performed to live, local music in 2011, and have since dedicated nearly every new work to hands-on experimentation with musicians in genres ranging from Baroque to rock. This April, with artistic director Garrett Ammon’s ballet DIVISIONS, they foray into the hip-hop world. The piece will celebrate the release of the Flobots’ new album, NOENEMIES, serving as the starting point for the band’s national tour. April 14–16, 22–23, 29–30. wonderbound.com.
