Nora Gibson Contemporary Ballet
NORA GIBSON CONTEMPORARY BALLET PRESENTS the world premiere of EPHEMERAL
February 19-21, 2016
Ephemeral is a ballet about Time about finiteness, about how we perceive Time, about how we are both in its fabric, and observers of it. Ephemeral is immersive, abstract, and cerebral. Choreography by Nora Gibson, and original music score by noted ambient electronic composer Michael McDermott (aka Mikronesia). Lighting design by guest lighting artist, Katinka Marac, known for her installations and creation of powerful environments through light and color. This evening-length ballet features a cast of seven outstanding dancers.
Nora Gibson Contemporary Ballet is committed to presenting ballet that is both beautiful and intellectually bold. Central to the company’s mission is the pursuit of this question: “What is ballet in the 21st Century?” As an American, female choreographer, Gibson is a voice of progress, and openness as to the scope of ballet. Gibson’s work is inspired by the beauty of the natural world, as evidenced in mathematics and science. NGCB provides a platform for interdisciplinary collaboration between dance, music, light installation, and academia. http://noragibsoncontemporaryballet.com
