Each year, the New Choreographers Initiative holds an intensive three-week process to create fresh, cutting edge new dances. NCI Discovery 2014 will showcase four new ballets created through this program. Artistic Director Molly Lynch invited four choreographers of note, as well as sixteen professional dancers from ballet companies across the country, to participate. This evening will debut the results to the public. This year's choreographers are Barry Kerollis, Gabrielle Lamb, Philip Neal and Garrett Smith. The evening also offers an opportunity to hear the choreographers talk about their concepts and ideas, and for the audience to participate in the discussion. Learn More

“Completely seductive.” —The Guardian_ _(UK)
Watch a video of Knots.
Pronounced “kush came,” this company will make its first West Coast appearance en route to New York. Controversial, startling and aggressive in movement and text, this dance-theater piece is based on the studies of couples’ relationships by noted psychologist R.D. Laing. Widely acclaimed on the international festival circuit, this award-winning evening, bursting with high-octane choreography, is both brutal and touching — and at times, hilarious. Virtuoso choreographer Liam Steel (of Stan Won’t Dance) directs the six performers of CoisCéim in a show that tries to untangle the complexity of human relationships.
