Morphoses premiere combines dance, film at Jacob’s Pillow

ECKET — In the five years of its existence, the chamber-size contemporary ballet company Morphoses has lived up to the ephemerality of its name, with varying results.

The company’s brief Sturm und Drang-filled history includes a reported falling out between its cofounders — the talented choreographer Christopher Wheeldon and the former ballerina Lourdes Lopez, now Morphoses’ director — resulting in both the exit of Wheeldon and the company’s new model of engaging a series of visiting resident artistic directors.
