Taking wing on dreams of a homeland
Though choreographer Jose Mateo left his native Cuba to come to America at the tender age of 5, the heart and soul of his country’s culture is deeply ingrained. For the second time in only four years, Mateo has devoted an entire program that goes back to his roots, and what a kick it gives his classically based choreography.

Less is more in Mateo’s ‘Fearless’
You wouldn’t know it from the fever-pitched rhetoric firing up the news these days, but elegance and tasteful intelligence still exist.

For proof, see Jose Mateo Ballet Theatre’s production of “Fearless Symmetries.”

JMBT opened its repertory season at the Sanctuary Theatre in Cambridge on Friday evening with the world-premiere of that work and 2005’s “Presage.” Exploring opposite poles of musical minimalism, the two pieces told compelling stories with straightforward simplicity.

From bouncy to brooding
Jose Mateo Ballet Theatre's season-opening program at Harvard Square's Sanctuary Theatre explores two very different sides of music minimalism. And gratifyingly, the music seems to have sparked two very different choreographic responses from the veteran dancemaker, resulting in a compelling and engaging program.

With 'Streams,' Mateo takes abstract route
The title of José Mateo Ballet Theatre's latest concert, "Revel Without a Cause," whimsically refers to Mateo's conscious choice to liberate himself from the necessity of balletic narrative. And revel he does, as shown in the new abstract "Streams," given its world premiere at the Sanctuary Theatre Saturday night.

Performers shine in ‘Lunar Effects’

Mateo melds loss, hope, and a fluid beauty
Jose Mateo Ballet Theatre’s new program, the first of its 24th season, pairs two contrasting ballets about loss. One, the brand new “Over and Over,’’ catches the edgy tenor of the times. The other, 1991’s “Isle of the Dead,’’ is one of Mateo’s most unabashedly gorgeous works, a ballet that tempers the desolation of loss with hope.
