National Choreographers Initiative: NCI Discovery

Sat. July 29, 2023 at 8pm

Presented by Irvine Barclay Theatre and National Choreographers Initiative

Be there for the birth of four new ballets created as part of the intensive 3-week process of National Choreographers Initiative. Artistic Director Molly Lynch invites four choreographers, as well as 16 professional dancers from ballet companies across the country, to participate.

Founded by Molly Lynch in 2004, National Choreographers Initiative is a Southern California project with national influence. Many of the pieces begun here have gone on to be performed elsewhere in the U.S. and abroad.

The project culminates in a public performance that showcases the excitement of new creation. Audiences may join us live for the in-person showing at the Barclay or may opt to purchase the livestream option for viewing.
