5th Anniversary Season

5th Anniversary Season

MorDance, in its mission to create modern, relevant movement that maintains the integrity of classical ballet, celebrates their fifth milestone year this April 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,” Artistic Director 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.
