The Kaplan New Works Series

Boldly moving choreography forward, one jeté at a time

Now in its tenth year, The Kaplan New Works Series continues to innovate, elevate and celebrate modern choreographers while showcasing the dancers, spotlighting their strength, athleticism and diversity. New Works is performed in a smaller, more intimate setting than all of our other productions, allowing the audience to feel the raw energy this series generates.

This September’s choreographer roster includes: Jennifer Archibald, founder and artistic director of New York City’s acclaimed Arch Dance Company; Heather Britt, a six-time collaborator with Cincinnati Ballet and founder of the wildly-popular DANCEFIX; Cincinnati Ballet’s own Artistic Director & CEO Victoria Morgan; Amy Seiwert, artistic director of Imagery, who last choreographed for New Works with 2011’s I Think of You Often; and William Whitener, former artistic director of Kansas City Ballet and Artist in Residence for part of the 2013-2014 Season.

“New Works is about revelations. Not just choreographic revelations. But since they see these dancers in different ways, the guest choreographers who create these new works offer us revelations about the performers themselves.”
