Verb Ballets returns to the Akron Civic Theatre on September 28, 2013 with an evening to highlight contemporary choreographers. The program will feature the new company work by Tommie-Waheed Evans, a dancer with PHILADANCO! Evans returned to Verb Ballets this summer to create Dark Matter (2013). His new work is not to be missed and requires percussive driving energy and athleticism of the dancers. Verb Ballets will revived the neo-classical pas de deux Andante Sostenuto (1988)  by Heinz Poll and danced to the second movement of Mendelssohn's Piano Concerto No. 2. Returning to the stage will be Duet choreographed by Poll in 1979 in the neo-classical style of George Balanchine. Also on the program is Passing By (2013) choreographed by Antonio Brown, a dancer with Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company. The contemporary work commissioned for Verb Ballets intertwines patterns and bodies for a visually dynamic performance.
