Episode 211: James Sofranko

Cheryl A. Ossola, SF Ballet writer and Dance Studio Life magazine editor in chief, interviews Soloist James Sofranko. Soloist James Sofranko discusses his roles in Justin Peck’s In the Countenance of Kings (and the injury that kept him from performing it) and Christopher Wheeldon’s Continuum, whose creative process he was part of in 2001. An emerging choreographer himself, Sofranko talks about how Peck and Wheeldon have influenced him; his upcoming work for the San Francisco Ballet School Showcase (his second), set on the Trainees; and his new role as founder and artistic director of a small troupe, SFDanceworks.
