Three choreographic voices - selections from American composer Paul Moravec, live music from ALIAS Chamber Ensemble, and vocal collaboration from choral group Portara Ensemble - combine to create three new works that will premiere in Emergence.

Banning Bouldin 
Specializing in contemporary dance, Banning Bouldin brings a cutting edge, European style of movement to the stage accompanied by classical music.

James Gregg 
Nationally in-demand choreographer James Gregg combines classical ballet and contemporary movement with varying dynamic shifts to create a brand new work.

Gina Patterson
After her 2013 creation, …but the flowers have yet to come, set to music from Nashville singer-songwriter Matthew Perryman Jones, Gina Patterson creates another new work full of intense artistry and a feminine perspective.
