 An Evening With New Chamber Ballet
 
New ballets to live music in an informal setting.
 
Venue: ( City Center Studio 5)
City Center Studio 5
Producer: ( New Chamber Ballet)
New Chamber Ballet
City: New York

Additional Notes:

New Chamber Ballet's 2017/18 season continues with a program of five ballets by Miro Magloire with live music on violin and piano:

 

The World Premiere of the complete version of Bach, a quartet to preludes and fugues from The Well-Tempered Clavier.

 

The World Premiere of Schattentanz, a collaboration with composer Reiko Fueting.

 

The revival of Tilting / Leaning. The title doesnt do justice to the inventiveness of the action: [the dancers'] weight-sharing, limb-locking, head-butting and other modes of manipulating one anothers bodies, often in deliberately arduous ways. Pierre Boulezs Notations... reflected their sense of discovery. Sarah Thea Swaffords costumes — maroon bodysuits with sheer accents, black point shoes — were appropriately stark. (Siobhan Burke, The New York Times)

 

Lace, a ritualistic trio to Luciano Berio's Sequenza for violin. Whenever (one dancer) is performing a short solo, the other two sit on the floor in poses that call up images from Greek friezes… Their calmness is a nice contrast to the intricacies of the solos... (Deborah Jowitt, The Village Voice)

 

Morning Song, a solo set to John Cage's Cheap Imitation for solo violin. [Dancer Elizabeth Brown's] blend of poetry and authority put me in mind of some of Martha Graham's most evocative works... I have continued to be in awe of [Elizabeth's] particular gifts as a dancer and interpreter; this solo really shows her off to perfection. (Philip Gardner, Oberon's Grove)

 

Performers include Sarah Atkins, Elizabeth Brown, Kristine Butler, Traci Finch, and Amber Neff. The music will be played live by Doori Na (violin) and Taka Kigawa (piano).

 

It's heartening to see work so focused on the meeting of dance and music. -Alastair Macaulay, The New York Times

 

Schattentanz was commissioned by the O'Donnell-Green Music and Dance Foundation. Bach was commissioned by Leslie and Richard Curtis.

Additional Notes:
Chromoluminarism is a multi-media, circus theatre piece about Georges Seurat's last painting, The Circus. Featuring the acrobats of Constellation Moving Company, this artist collective explores Seurat's personal life, pointillism, and his relationship with the circus world. Aerialists merge with live and recorded text, soundscapes, projections and music to create a kinetic atmosphere between color, movement, sound, and light. Delving into Seurats color theories, Chromoluminarism explores the elusive quest of the artist.
