The Louisville Ballet’s “Choreographers’ Showcase” is always one of its season’s most interesting offerings, with multiple choreographers trying out new work, often with a bigger and better trained group of dancers than they’ve worked with before.
This year promises to be something special. Teaming with the Kentucky College of Art + Design (KyCAD), the Louisville Ballet is creating an immersive dance-filled environment that will pair choreographers with artists and students from the art school.
These big changes require a big name change. #ChorShow is a title, but also a hashtag and something of a curatorial and design-oriented thesis for the evening of open world sandbox-style creativity that takes place Thursday, Jan. 31, through Saturday, Feb. 2.
Insider caught up with Louisville Ballet Artistic Director Robert Curran as well as Ezra Kellerman, KyCAD’s assistant professor of Studio Art, to find out about this site-specific performance that will move through the entire 849 Gallery.
