Two world premieres by Miro Magloire will take center stage when the choreographer's New Chamber Ballet returns to City Center Studio 5 for November 21 & 22 performances. The Company's home base of the City Center Studio "allows for a very intimate relationship between the performers and audience," according to Elizabeth Portnoy, reviewing in www.broadwayworld.com, September 30, 2014. "The Company is extravagant," noted Brian Seibert" only in live music of high quality." (The New York Times, September 23, 2014).
Magloire will premiere two works at the November performances:
A solo for Kaitlyn Gilliland to Arnold Schoenberg's Six Piano Pieces, op. 19,
And a new company work to Niccolo Paganini's Caprices for violin.
From the repertory is "Stay With Me," is a dark dance of need and rejection, set to a commissioned score by contemporary composer Michel Galante, made possible by a grant from the O'Donnell-Green Music and Dance Foundation.
The program will be completed by "Two Friends," a stormy friendship drama that premiered last June. Known for his sophisticated and wide-ranging musicality, Magloire's works range musically from Karlheinz Stockhausen and Morton Feldman to Debussy's Violin Sonata, which he has selected for "Two Friends."
