Cincinnati Ballet Kaplan New Works series opens the 2019-2020 Season with six world premieres!
If you think ballet is all tutus and pointe shoes, think again. The Kaplan New Works Series brings raw, powerful contemporary ballet to the Aronoff Center for the Arts for 11 performances September 12-22. This year’s New Works includes six world premieres featuring experimental, athletic contemporary dance from up-and-coming choreographers, including three Main Company dancers!
About the Cincinnati Ballet Kaplan New Works series
Celebrate the start of the season with a mix of innovative dance interpreted by some of today’s most talented choreographers, including a trio of female powerhouses. Heather Britt, Cincinnati native and choreographer-extraordinaire, celebrates her 10th anniversary choreographing for Cincinnati Ballet with her emotional piece When I Still Needed You. She’s joined by internationally renowned choreographer Andrea Schermoly with Swivet, and Sarah Van Patten, longtime San Francisco Ballet principal dancer, presents her new work, Skylight.
New Works also includes three world premieres from Cincinnati Ballet dancers, selected through Cincinnati Ballet’s annual Choreographer’s Workshop held last Spring. This is the second consecutive year Senior Soloist David Morse and Corps de Ballet member Taylor Carrasco have choreographed for New Works. Morse will present his piece, As I State at the Dust and Carrasco presents a new work, Neat. Principal Dancer Melissa Gelfin choreographs for New Works for the first time with her piece, Clockwise.
