The Lansburgh Theater | 450 7th St NW
In their Fifth Anniversary Season, Chamber Dance Project presents Ballet, Chant & Song
Witness world premiere of Chant, a powerful work of live Gregorian chant creating a cathedral of sound, movement and light that envelops the audience. Choreographed by Artistic Director Diane Coburn Bruning and company dancer Andile Ndlovu, Chant features singers under the leadership of the National Cathedral Music Director, Michael McCarthy. Drawing on the majesty and emotional sweep of Gregorian chant, the work journeys from traditional chant to African-textured chant that builds into a contemporary overlay of string and voices.
Experience exhilarating performances by the company’s eight dancers and string quartet. Our artists will perform powerful new and repertoire works from four choreographers, with our guest jazz trio featuring Lena Seikaly in the hit from last year, Songs by Cole*. The poignant Vespers by former Paul Taylor dancer, David Grenke, will receive its Washington premiere, and the beautiful Wild Swans, returns to our repertoire.
Diane Coburn Bruning, Artistic Director
