Ballet Pacifica will highlight its 2000-2001 season with work by guest choreographers who participated in the Irvine company's Pacifica Choreographic Project, initiated in 1991.

The season will open Oct. 13 and 14 at the Irvine Barclay Theatre with a new work by Peter Pucci, an alum of the 1997 workshop. The as-yet-untitled piece will be a collaboration with California visual artist Tony DeLap.

The program will also include "Triptych" by Lynne Taylor-Corbett (also in the 1997 workshop) and "Variations Serieuses" by Choo-San Goh.

The season will continue at the Barclay, 4242 Campus Drive:

* March 23-24: Premiere of a work by Ann Marie DeAngelo (1999 workshop), "Between People" by William Soleau (1991) and "No Less Than Every" by Rick McCullough (1996).

* June 15-16: New work by David Allan (1994 workshop), "As Is, Is Us" by Jamey Hampton (1998) and "Carmen" by Robert Sund.

This summer's choreographic workshop will present works-in-progress July 29 at 8 p.m. at South Coast Repertory in Costa Mesa.

The company also will present 17 performances of the "Nutcracker" at the Irvine Barclay, Dec. 14-24, 2000.
