Verb Ballets joins with Cleveland Chamber Orchestra for 'Verb Goes Electric'

Published:

Verb Ballets will perform Verb Goes Electric with the Cleveland Chamber Symphony, which will run March 21 through 23, with shows at 7 p.m., at Cleveland Public Theatre during the 2013 DanceWorks Series.

"We are excited to collaborate with Cleveland Chamber Symphony, a Grammy winning symphony, to explore contemporary American music. This show speaks to Verb's purpose to support and foster emerging talent," said Director, Dr. Margaret Carlson.

Four to six young and emerging composers will be selected to present new electronic music that explores and pushes the boundaries of contemporary American music. The dancers of Verb Ballets will then take the new score and challenge and explore how to move in the sound evolution of the musical language.

Single tickets $28-$10 are available by calling the Verb Ballets office at 216-397-3757 or online at www.verbballets.org. The Breen Center for the Performing Arts is at 2008 W. 30th St. in Cleveland.

Verb Ballets also will perform at Cleveland Public Theatre April 18 through 20 at 7 p.m. with an evening work featuring a modern interpretation of The Rite of Spring choreographed by Richard Dickinson. The new ballet titled, The Rite of Spring: The Bride Unseen, reinvents the story of pagan sacrifice as the bride surrenders her dreams to appease her family and succumbs to the pressure of an arranged marriage.
