Cleveland Public Theatre

Verb Ballets returns to Cleveland Public Theatre’s DanceWorks 2018 with vibrant performances that highlight bold artistry through the dancer’s creative lens. Fresh Inventions are built on the creative talent of company members and provide the opportunity to tap into a new realm of artistic development by experiencing the other side of creation. Verb Ballets presents premieres of new works by Verb Ballets’ Associate Director, Richard Dickinson, MFA, company dancers Kate Webb, Michael Escovedo, Lieneke Matte and trainee, Jocelyn Magnons.

For the second year in a row, the Ohio Arts Council has supported this initiative through Arts Next funding category. The works in Fresh Inventions are a result of explorations in the process by integrating new technology, music and virtual reality into the dance art-form. Verb Ballets led field trips to NASA, New Territory Virtual Reality Arcade and Case Western Reserve University to investigate new technology applications with dance. The National Center of Choreography Akron led a community panel on innovation in the field and facilitated audience feedback to works in progress.  Fresh Inventions reflects Verb Ballets’ vision to be recognized as a catalyst to promote learning and encourage dialogue about the dance art-form. Verb Ballets is honored to return to Cleveland Public Theatres’ DanceWorks for its 18th year.
