New Chamber Ballet presents Secret Place, a ballet by Miro Magloire to music by Reiko Fueting, Johann Paul von Westhoff, and Johann Sebastian Bach.

New Chamber Ballet continues its 2023-24 season with Secret Place, a ballet by two German-born artists, choreographer Miro Magloire and composer Reiko Fueting, with additional music by Johann Sebastian Bach and Johann Paul von Westhoff, on April 12 + 19 at the Mark Morris Dance Center, 3 Lafayette Avenue in Brooklyn.

Secret Place is a tribute to the power of the group: a casual gathering of five humans dancing in a clockwork-like synergy - delicate, bold, sometimes risky, always with spine-tingling elegance. One moment they're daringly perched on their pointe shoes, or hover on top of one another in a lift; then suddenly they drop to the floor to slither along the ground.

Reiko Fueting's music for violin and piano, which will be performed live, magically weaves traditional sounds with cutting-edge techniques, building a bridge from the Baroque to today. It is paired with two iconic Baroque violin pieces: Westhoff's Imitazione Delle Campane, and Bach's Chaconne.

Secret Place is performed in New Chamber Ballet's signature, in-the-round setup, with the audience seated up-close and able to see the kaleidoscopic choreography from various angles.

“Secret Place is unusually accessible, extraordinarily lyrical, and one of the highlights of the dance year... [the dancers] danced exceptionally well... a wonderful ballet, one that I can highly recommended seeing should it return...” (Jerry Hochman, CriticalDance.org, 2022)

Performers include the dancers Anabel Alpert, Megan Foley, Nicole McGinnis, Amber Neff, and Rachele Perla; as well as Doori Na (violin) and Seth Schultheis (piano).

The performance will be 60 minutes, and there will be no intermission.

Tickets: $38

This performance is supported by the Amphion Foundation and the Aaron Copland Fund for Music.
