Verb Ballets returns to Arts in August at Tremont’s Lincoln Park on August 11, 2018 at 8:30pm. The free program will delight audiences with both classical selections and bold works marking its 13th year at Arts in August. Verb Ballets will present the Cleveland debut of K281 by internationally acclaimed choreographer Adam Hougland. The ballet epitomizes the musicality of Mozart’s Piano Sonata No. 3 in B-flat major, K. 281. Verb Ballets, as part of the Graham Company’s Lamentation Variations Project, remounts three variations inspired by Martha Graham’s iconic solo, Lamentation. Nationally noted choreographers Antonio Brown (Bill T Jones/Arnie Zane), Chung-Fu Chang (Taiwan’s Cloud Gate Dance Theatre) and Ginger Thatcher (Lar Lubovitch Dance Company) have contributed their inspirations. Reviewers proclaimed that, “while referencing Graham, the works were themselves memorable and splendidly danced”. Award-winning Philadelphia choreographer Tommie-Waheed Evans work, Dark Matter is also featured. It has been described by critics as sparking, “Sleek encounters that brim with contrasting patterns and connections”. Dance critics are in agreement that Verb Ballets’ performances, “Dash preconceptions …with keen dramatic power”. Don’t miss this free Westside performance to conclude Verb Ballets’ Summer Series.
