Last year's 10th anniversary!

The National Choreographers Initiative celebrated it's tenth successful season of contemporary dance creation with two special occasions during July 2013. View our 10th Anniversary eProgram here.

The first event, NCI Highlights, commemorated choreographic successes originally created during NCI workshops between 2004 and 2012. In total, there have been thirty-seven NCI choreographers, who each created a new piece through this initative. Twenty-two of these original productions have been performed by other companies across the country. NCI Highlights (Saturday, July 13th), celebrated the national artistic impact of this project. Excerpts from several of these pieces will be revived by the 2013 cast - brought back to life on the very stage where they first debuted! NCI Highlights represented the progress and passion of the National Choreographers Initiative’s past ten seasons, and was a celebration not to be missed!
The second production of the 10th NCI season was the annual showcase, featuring four new works by choreographers David Fernandez, Susan McCullough, Kitty McNamee, and Petr Zahradnicek. The NCI Showing (Saturday, July 27th) presented the emergent works developed during the three-week workshop with the 2013 dancers.
