New Chamber Ballet and Miro Magloire present Stray Bird
Stray Bird is a danced tribute to composer Ursula Mamlok, who as a teenager fled from the Nazis, arrived in New York after traveling across three continents, and became one of her generation’s visionary composers. Six of Mamlok’s delicate, poetic chamber music compositions are presented with new choreography ranging from ballet to contemporary dance, highlighting Mamlok’s life, artistry, and her triumph over society’s conventions and political adversity.
A site-specific evening with choreography by Miro Magloire, Rebecca Walden, and Mara Driscoll, performed in the historic spaces of the German Academy New York by the dancers of New Chamber Ballet, the Momenta Quartet, and selected soloists.
