Aspen Santa Fe Bal­let has ac­quired a new piece, Lit­tle Mor­tal Jump, orig­i­nally chore­ographed by Ale­jan­dro Cer­rudo in 2012 for Hub­bard Street Dance Chicago, the con­tem­po­rary dance com­pany where Cer­rudo is res­i­dent chore­og­ra­pher. A mu­si­cal col­lage, in­clud­ing pieces by Philip Glass, Tom Waits, and the al­ter­na­tive rock band Beirut, helps create a dreamy at­mos­phere — dancers con­tin­u­ally come into and out of the piece, ap­pear­ing, like ghosts, and then fad­ing away. Also on the pro­gram is Fer­nando Melo’s in­trigu­ing piece Re:play and Ni­colo Fonte’s The

Heart(s)pace, a fast-twitch dance bathed in red and or­ange light — per­fect for a hot sum­mer night. Per­for­mances are at Len­sic Per­form­ing Arts Cen­ter (211 W. San Fran­cisco St.) on Fri­day, July 15, and Satur­day, July 16, at 8 p.m. Tick­ets, $25-94, are avail­able by call­ing 505-988-1234 or vis­it­ing www.tick­etssantafe.org.
