More Room to Play - Kaplan New Works

The 2023-2024 Season kicks off with Rep 1—MORE ROOM TO PLAY, Kaplan New Works. The wildly popular annual series returns with invigorated programming from Artistic Director Jodie Gates.

The annual Kaplan New Works series presents the work of up-and-coming choreographers. This ambitious program will feature two world premieres, one by Tiler Peck, principal dancer with New York City Ballet, and one by Houston Thomas, freelance choreographer and a second-soloist with the Dresden Semperoper Ballett. Thomas’ work is set to the music of Bohren & der Club of Gore, a German ambient/jazz band, and British musician cktrl.  Amy Seiwert, artistic director of Amy Seiwert’s Imagery, a contemporary ballet company in San Francisco, created It’s Not a Cry set to Jeff Buckley’s mesmerizing recording of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah.” The short work tells an emotional story about yearning for love. Completing the program is a work entitled Quem Viver, Verá (“He Who Lives Shall See”) a dance for five men by Cincinnati Ballet artistic collaborator Jennifer Archibald.  The title work on the program, MORE ROOM TO PLAY, is choreographed by David Morse.
