VERB BALLETS Returns To DanceWorks 2018
Cleveland Public Theatre presents Verb Ballets in, Fresh Inventions, at DanceWorks 2018 May 17-19, 2018 with vibrant performances that highlight bold artistry through the dancer's creative lens. Fresh Inventions is built on the talent of company members and provides the opportunity to tap into a new realm of artistic development by experiencing the choreographic side of creation. Verb Ballets presents premieres of new works by Verb Ballets' Associate Director, Richard Dickinson, MFA, company dancers Kate Webb, Michael Escovedo, Lieneke Matte and trainee, Jocelyn Magons.
The works in Fresh Inventions are a result of explorations in the process of integrating new technology, music and virtual reality into the choreographic effort.
These premieres are the result of a choreographic initiative supported by an Ohio Arts Council Arts Next grant. Verb Ballets led field trips to NASA, New Territory Virtual Reality Arcade and Case Western Reserve Univeristy to investigate new technology applications with dance. The National Center of Choreography Akron led a community panel on innovation and facilitated audience feedback to works in progress. Fresh Inventions reflects Verb Ballets' vision to be recognized as a catalyst to promote learning and encourage dialogue about dance as an art-form.
Verb Ballets is honored to return to Cleveland Public Theatre's DanceWorks for its 18th year. Verb Ballets will perform May 17-19, 2018 in the Gordon Square Theatre. Performances begin at 7:30 p.m. Single tickets on Fridays and Saturdays are $30 for general admission and $12 for all tickets on Thursdays.
