Experience world premieres by choreographers Loughlan Prior and Stina Quagebeur, and the return of Amy Hall Garner’s Switching the Groove (2023).
Loughlan Prior is the award-winning Choreographer in Residence at Royal New Zealand Ballet. Described by DANZ as “a creative tour de force,” his 2020 BalletX dance film, Scribble, was featured on PBS’s Great Performances. Prior’s new work explores the 1772 Macaroni Scandal, and features an original score by Claire Cowan.
Stina Quagebeur, whose work has been hailed as “original and memorable” by Dance Tabs, is an Associate Choreographer of English National Ballet whose work has been performed at Ailey, Sadler’s Wells, The Joyce Theater, and more. Her new work takes inspiration from Akira Kurosawa’s classic film, Rashomon.
Amy Hall Garner‘s Switching the Groove (2023) was praised by The Philadelphia Inquirer for its “large movements and crisp footwork.” A graduate of The Juilliard School, Garner has been commissioned by New York City Ballet, Miami City Ballet, and Paul Taylor Dance Company, among many others.
