Nicole Caruana, BalletX’s 2020 Choreographic Fellow, will create a world premiere exploring the early history of the United States. A promising choreographer, she has won first prize at Germany’s International Competition for Choreographers, and received commissions from Scapino Ballet and Canadian Contemporary Dance Theater.
Gregory Dawson is Artistic Director of San Francisco’s dawsondancesf, a company he founded, in 2007, following his 20-year career dancing with Alonzo King Lines Ballet. His work delves into the collaborative nature of choreography, and features “muscular, sinewy, high-impact modern dance inflected and informed by classical ballet” (San Francisco Chronicle).
John McFall, former Artistic Director of Atlanta Ballet and BalletMet, where he commissioned choreographers such as Twyla Tharp and Wayne McGregor, has created works on Dance Theater of Harlem, American Ballet Theatre, and San Francisco Ballet. He embraces “simple gestures” in his work, described as “stunning” and “beautifully performed” (Backstage Beat).
