New Chamber Ballet

New York City, NY      

Praised by the New York Times as “one of the small-scale delights of the New York Dance Scene,” New Chamber Ballet is a group of dancers and musicians dedicated to performing modern ballets to contemporary chamber music.

The company boasts a repertoire that includes over seventy ballets by founder and chief choreographer Miro Magloire, as well as important works by other young choreographic talents, set to music by composers such as Stockhausen, Boulez, Feldman, Berio, Sciarrino, Haas, Furrer, and younger composers such as Michel Galante, Richard Carrick and Nina C Young.  “It’s heartening to see work so focused on the meeting of dance and music.” (Alastair Macaulay, The New York Times)

New Chamber Ballet has has collaborated with ensembles including the Argento Chamber Ensemble, Ensemble Sospeso, and Ensemble Moto Perpetuo. Recently the company has created site-specific works engaging architecture ranging from Bramante’s Renaissance-Tempietto in Rome to a new building by Pritzker Prize winners SANAA.

In the 2015-16 season, the company is performing nationally from California to Connecticut, and internationally from Italy to Guatemala. But its artistic home remains its ongoing studio series at New York’s City Center Studio.  “In a city full of ballet, Magloire’s New Chamber Ballet is a welcome and unique voice… Indeed, with music and choreography that remind us of our own humanity, Magloire, with New Chamber Ballet, will continue to show us what is possible for ballet.” (Tara Lindis, Times Square Chronicle)
