bold moves plus

July 23-25, 2020 | Aronoff Center

This COMBINED program will feature highlights from BOTH Director’s Cut and Bold Moves. Newly titled Bold Moves Plus certainly lives up to its name with four provocative works. The program will feature the following: Alejandro Cerrudo’s Extremely Close, Annabelle Lopez Ochoa’s Bloom, Val Caniparoli’s Ibsen’s House, and Ohad Naharin’s Minus 16. This extended program will notably capture most of the beloved pieces from both programs and will serve as Cervilio Miguel Amador’s retirement performances before he joins the team at Cincinnati Ballet as our Acting Ballet Master for the 2020-2021 Season.
