NCI Highlights commemorates choreographic successes originally created during NCI workshops between 2004 and 2012. In total, there have been thirty-seven NCI choreographers, who each created a new piece through this initative. Twenty-two of these original productions are now in the repertoire of companies across the country. NCI Highlights celebrates the national artistic impact of this project. Excerpts from several of these pieces will be revived by the 2013 ensemble of dancers, brought back to life on the very stage where they first debuted! NCI Highlights represents the progress and passion of the National Choreographers Initiative’s past ten seasons, and will be a celebration you will not want to miss!
The brainchild of Artistic Director Molly Lynch, NCI is a unique dance project that convenes four promising choreographers and an ensemble of sixteen professional dancers for a three-week intensive process of contemporary ballet creation. NCI culminates in a one-night engagement at Irvine Barclay Theatre for a showing of these new works.
