We would like to thank the crew at Peace Water for keeping their doors open late for our patrons & “friends of IB” AND for agreeing to donate a portion of the event’s sales back to IB as a fundraiser. That means the more friends you bring and the more wine you drink (responsibly, of course) or take home, the more IB will receive to help keep the incredible artistry on display coming to the Circle City.
Indianapolis Ballet’s New Works series moves to The District Theatre, adding to the updated venue’s eclectic artistic programming. The four performances November 8-11 will feature fresh, genre-bending choreography in an intimate setting that will allow audience members to witness the passion, precision and athleticism of professional dance via a unique, up-close experience.
IB is thrilled to welcome award-winning choreographer and one of Broadway’s brightest talents, Joshua Bergasse, as a collaborator for New Works. IB’s performance of Aspects of Andy will bring Bergasse back to Indiana, where he debuted the choreography on the Indiana University Ballet Theater in October 2010, which featured current IB member Chris Lingner. The work was part of “The Baker Dances,” a jazz-inspired presentation featuring music composed by legendary IU Jacobs School of Music Distinguished Professor David Baker.
New Works will include another piece featuring an Indiana jazz icon, as saxophonist Rob Dixon’s “Blues for Velez” will serve as the backdrop for choreography by Roberta Wong. The production will also debut choreography by IB Founding Artistic Director Victoria Lyras (Caprice & Variations, Diana & Acteon Pas de Deux) and IB Ballet Master Paul Vitali (Take it from Tony).
