When the Joffrey Ballet performs “Beyond the Shore,” a dance created by choreographer and ballet master Nicolas Blanc, the audience is invited to witness a daring journey through an ever-changing environment.

A soundscape by modern composer Mason Bates accompanies the work, which has six atmospheric movements that suggest unfamiliar landscapes, from tropical waters to a walk in space.

On Friday, audiences can experience “Beyond the Shore” when the Joffrey Ballet makes a tour stop at the San Diego Civic Theatre as part of the La Jolla Music Society’s Dance Series.
