Company C Contemporary Ballet 2014 Spring Program

Aposiopesis (excerpts - 3rd & 4th Movements) Choreography by Charles Anderson Music by Michael Nyman

What's Behind Door #3 Choreography by Charles Anderson Music by Philip K. Bimstein

Maurice Causey (world premiere--title to be announced) Music by Gabriel Prokofiev

New Country (world premiere) Choreography by Charles Moulton Music by Chris Thile and the Punch Brothers

Partly Cloudy (excerpts) Choreography by Patrick Corbin Music by Marsha Groethe


Maurice Causey's slick, sleek and hard-edged Ominous Rumblings of Discontent was a hit of Company C's 2011 season. The European dance-maker returns with a new ballet created especially for the Company set to a score by Gabriel Prokofiev, grandson of the legendary Russian composer, Sergei Prokofiev. Movement magician Charles Moulton will also create a new work for the program. Completing a trio of new works will be the world premiere of What's Behind Door #3 by Charles Anderson that takes as inspiration a creative musical score that samples doors opening, closing, creaking and swinging and a set of three doors the dancers use as inventive props. Rounding out the program and demonstrating the range of Company C artists' technique and performance mettle include excerpts from Anderson's Aposiopesis, and Company C audience favorite Patrick Corbin returns with his dizzyingly athletic Partly Cloudy Suite, set to music by Marsha Groethe.
