MorDance, in its mission to create modern, relevant movement that maintains the integrity of classical ballet, celebrates their fifth milestone year at Aaron Davis Hall, April 27-28. Hailed by the New York Times as a “crisp” and “clean” dance maker with “an eye for shaping the arc of a dance as carefully as the transitions and details within it,” Morgan McEwen will premiere two new works on her ensemble of eight, and resurrect a work from their inaugural season. From her diverse group moving in and out of shadows, suspended by raised structures in Arvo Pärt’s Stabat Mater, inspired by a 13th century hymn at the time of Christ’s crucifixion to the exploration of relationships among us in Depth’s Entangled, the evening will present a full scope of technical and artistic storytelling and celebration of movement in it’s purest sense. The company will also honor the centennial celebration of the great Leonard Bernstein with a new work to the chilling score On The Waterfront Symphonic Suite.
MorDance’s 5th Anniversary Season is made possible in part with public funds from Creative Engagement / Creative Learning, supported by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and administered by Lower Manhattan Cultural Council. LMCC.net
