Building Bridges Together

November 21, 2020 7:00 PM ET

Verb Ballets and BlueWater Chamber Orchestra have joined forces to create, Building Bridges Together, a captivating collaboration designed, performed, and filmed specifically for virtual performance. This uniquely Cleveland-born partnership combines the evocative dancers of Verb Ballets under the leadership of Producing Artistic Director, Dr. Margaret Carlson and Associate Artistic Director, Richard Dickinson, MFA with the virtuosity of BlueWater under its Artistic Director, Daniel Meyer. The combined program will be a visual cinematic experience, providing an intimate view from the vantage point of the artists unlike any stage performance. Featured repertory includes Heinz Poll’s Adagio for Two Dancers set to Albinoni’s Adagio and Broken Bridges by Michael Escovedo set to Shostakovich’s Chamber Symphony. BlueWater will also play Anton Webern’s Langsamer Satz in a stand-alone performance. It’s an evening of connecting to the heart; a perfect respite for these emotionally challenging times.
