Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet

  • March 10, 2012 at 8:00 pm

Concert Hall

This cutting-edge New York-based company explores the infinite possibilities found in the marriage of movement and multimedia. Their daring, athletic movements and integration of classical ballet with contemporary and popular dance forms has garnered this 16-member ensemble a great deal of attention. “Dancing that pulls viewers right out of their seats,” raves The New York Times. The Artistic Director Benoit-Swan Pouffer—celebrated dancer/choreographer and installation artist—has commissioned emerging contemporary choreographers, like Crystal Pite, Jacopo Godani, and Edwaard Liang, to create groundbreaking new works. This wide-ranging spectrum of repertory has helped to distinguish this unique company, which was founded in 2003, as an important, new creative force. “Cedar Lake’s dancers go from zero to 60 with an ease you or I cannot fathom.” (The New York Times)
