MORGAN MCEWEN TO LAUNCH MORDANCE, A NEW ECLECTIC BALLET COMPANY IN INAUGUARAL SEASON THIS SPRING WITH A ONE NIGHT ONLY SHOWCASE OF INTERNATIONAL AND NEW YORK ARTISTS.
A sensual and groundbreaking evening of dance that delivers timeless movement and the celebration of dance in its purest form.
Morgan McEwen , ballerina turned artistic director of MorDance, has assembled an army of dancers to propel a new company into the New York arts scene with its world premiere of two pieces this Spring. This young company with dancers hailing from American Ballet Theater to the Polish National Ballet, will playfully leap to the edge of the classical ballet realm and explore the use of athleticism and speed in its aim to modernize and innovate while honoring the grace and beauty of the art form.
McEwen's aesthetic is one of dissimilarity and celebrates dance for its own sake, portrayed by an ensemble with varying body types, backgrounds and strengths to bring to life a realm that is robust, uninhibited and one with impressive staying power. With musical scores by Nico Muhly and Venetian Snares, McEwen will present two world premiers, "Matter of Course" and "Depths Entangled." introducing a dynamic between these newly married dancers that is fresh and inviting.
This one night only performance will take place on May 3, 2013 at 8pm at the Manhattan Movement and Arts Center Theater, located at 248 W 60th St, New York, NY. Individual tickets are priced at $35 and $45. Each $45 includes a post-performance reception.
Dancers to perform in this evening of work are: Tobin Eason (American Ballet Theater), Iza Szylińska (Polish National Ballet) Abbey Rosener (Armitage Gone! Dance), Nora Brown (Les Grands Ballets Canadiens), Kimberly Giannelli (Ballets with a Twist), Kamille Upshaw (The Metropolitan Opera) and director Morgan McEwen of The Metropolitan Opera formerly of BalletMet Columbus.
