MorDance's 2022 Spring Season at Symphony Space
MorDance returns to the stage April 29-30 with three world premieres woven together by themes of humanity and activism. A trailblazing female-led and diverse ensemble celebrated for creating original works that push the boundaries of classical ballet, choreographer Morgan McEwen, composer Polina Nazaykinskaya, pianist Konstantin Soukhovetski and lighting designer Becky Hiesler collaborate in an evening of dance to push ballet to its limits with dynamic athleticism, artistry, and grace. Heralded by The New York Times as having, “an eye for shaping the arc of a dance as carefully as the transitions and details within it,” McEwen commits to breaking down barriers of movement, social, and gender-based inequalities in ballet and cultivates an empowered environment for artistic expression and exploration.
Following Friday evening’s performance, stay after the curtain closes to join the creative team and dancers for an interactive discussion on the creative process and returning to the stage following a two year pause due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
MorDance 2022 Spring Season is made possible in part with public funds from Creative Engagement, supported by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and the New York State Council on the Arts and administered by Lower Manhattan Cultural Council. Additionally, this work has been made possible by a commissioning grant from the O’Donnell-Green Music and Dance Foundation.
