Chamber Dance Project’s seventh Washington season brings together nine dancers from leading ballet companies, our resident string quartet, and guest musical artists in a program that reflects the company’s creative range, powerfully daring dancing, and signature approach to the collaboration of dancers and musicians together onstage.

4 WORLD PREMIERES | 1 DC PREMIERE |2 WEEKENDS | 2 PROGRAMS | 5 CHOREOGRAPHERS | 9 DANCERS |  14 MUSICIANS | 

Four world premieres choreographed by Claudia Schreier, who recently premiered a ballet with Dance Theatre of Harlem, Colin Gee, a recent Guggenheim Fellowship recipient, and Diane Coburn Bruning, Founder and Artistic Director of Chamber Dance Project. Company dancer, Cooper Verona, also makes his choreographic debut with In the Silence with a glorious Arvo Part score.
