Verb Ballets is pleased to close the season by participating in Cleveland Public Theatre DanceWorks ’14 on May 1-3, 2014 at Cleveland Public Theatre. Verb Ballets’ Spring Series will feature the work of Creative Fusion Artist-in-Residence, Ngo Thanh Phuong, funded through The Cleveland Foundation. Ms. Ngo will be working with Verb Ballets during a three-month residency to develop new work and share a 21st century view of Vietnamese culture with the company and community. Her new contemporary group work will focus on the connection of people and feelings that bring us together. Using an original music score that combines voices, rock and roll and elements of traditional Vietnamese music to express the movement through feelings that are common cultural paradigm. Ngo will also use video projections as installation art with the dancers that pushes the boundaries of conventional dance.

Also on the program is the world premiere by the contemporary choreographer, Sara Whale. Her new work is inspired by Gustav Klimt, the renowned painter of the “Golden Period” of Austrian art. She will explore symbolic meanings of the dual role of women as inspiration in the struggle for modern identity. Whale is a resident teacher with Verb Ballets and on faculty at Baldwin Wallace University. Her style is innovative and uniquely original while rooted in elements of contemporary dance.
