Kaleidoscope, an innovative program featuring a new creation by ARB’s own Ryoko Tanaka and pianist-composer Ian Howells. Audience favorite, Claire Davison’s Bewitched (set to Ella Fitzgerald’s iconic vocals), is certain to delight alongside a dazzling classical pas de deux showcasing the balletic bravura of ARB’s artists. Also commissioned for the program is a unique collaboration between choreographer Da’ Von Doane (formerly of Dance Theatre of Harlem) and New Jersey-based visual artist Grace Lynne Haynes, whose creations have graced the cover of The New Yorker magazine among others.
Co-choreographed by Ethan Stiefel and Johan Kobborg, Giselle will make its American Repertory Ballet premiere at the New Brunswick Performing Arts Center in March 2023. This celebrated and moving production had its world premiere at the Royal New Zealand Ballet in 2012, and has since toured the globe. Giselle was adapted into a feature film directed by Tao Fraser, selected for screening in the NZ International Film Festival, Vancouver International Film Festival and the Toronto International Film Festival. Stiefel and Kobborg’s Giselle will be restaged and partially redesigned specifically for American Repertory Ballet by an award-winning and renowned creative team.
PREMIERE3 features the revival and company premiere of Holberg Suite, choreographed by legendary dancer, dance maker, trail-blazer, and co-founder of the Dance Theatre of Harlem – Arthur Mitchell. This invigorating ballet, set to the music of Edvard Grieg, will have newly designed costumes created for American Repertory Ballet.
