The program will include Lara Murphy’s evocative Nosotros - a romantic pas de deux set to the music of prolific Cuban composer and respected pianist Ernesto Lecuona. Darshan Bhuller’s evocative 1914 commemorates the centennial of World War I with a 15-minute abstract piece that exposes the isolation and desolation of war, while Robert Battle’s Rush Hour energizes the stage with its powerful abstraction of modern life. Kehynde Hill’s work entitled (B)ear (N)o (W)itness also explores hop-hop with an upbeat score of contemporary music and a solemn storyline. The program also features a driving contemporary work by guest choreographer Josée Garant entitled Forced Entry, as well as two ballet works - an excerpt from the upcoming Thomas Armour Youth Ballet/NWSA production of The Nutcracker and Away, a moving contemporary piece by Gerard Ebitz.
