More Room to Play


The 2023-2024 Season kicks off with Rep 1—MORE ROOM TO PLAY, Kaplan New Works.

The annual Kaplan New Works series presents fresh and ambitious works from talented choreographers. This ambitious program will feature three world premieres from Tiler Peck, principal dancer with New York City Ballet; Houston Thomas, freelance choreographer and a second-soloist with the Dresden Semperoper Ballett and Cincinnati Ballet patron favorite David Morse. Thomas’ work is set to the music of Bohren & der Club of Gore, a German ambient/jazz band, and British musician cktrl; and the title work on the program, MORE ROOM TO PLAY, choreographed by David Morse.

It also features work from Amy Seiwert, who serves as the artistic head of her own contemporary ballet company, Amy Seiwert’s Imagery, and is currently the Artistic Director of Smuin Ballet based in San Francisco. She crafted a piece titled ‘It’s Not a Cry‘, set to the captivating rendition of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” by Jeff Buckley. The short work tells an emotional story about yearning for love.

Completing the program is a work entitled Quem Viver, Verá (“He Who Lives Shall See”) a dance for five men by Cincinnati Ballet artistic collaborator Jennifer Archibald.
