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
NCI Highlights_ commemorates choreographic successes originally created during NCI workshops between 2004 and 2012. In total, there have been thirty-seven NCI choreographers, who each created a new piece through this initative. Twenty-two of these original productions have been performed by other companies across the country. NCI Highlights_ celebrates the national artistic impact of this project. Excerpts from several of these pieces will be revived by the 2013 ensemble of dancers, brought back to life on the very stage where they first debuted! NCI Highlights represents the progress and passion of the National Choreographers Initiative’s past ten seasons, and will be a celebration you will not want to miss.
The brainchild of Artistic Director Molly Lynch, NCI is a unique dance project that convenes four promising choreographers and an ensemble of sixteen professional dancers for a three-week intensive process of contemporary dance creation. NCI culminates in a one-night engagement at Irvine Barclay Theatre for the debut performance of these new works.
