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.

An utterly moving integration of movement, visual imagery and the spoken word, the Barclay presents the southern California premiere of Joe Goode’s latest dance-theater work. _Wonderboy _is an intimate story of an unlikely superhero realized through inspired movement and the enchantment of puppetry. Acclaimed for creating deeply felt, profoundly human experiences, choreographer Joe Goode works with acclaimed puppet designer Basil Twist to create a magical collaboration of innovative storytelling infused with wit, humor and pathos.
Wonderboy had its world premiere last June in San Francisco. The program also includes an audience favorite: Joe Goode’s 1996 work, Maverick Strain.
NOTE: This performance is not appropriate for children.
