A Dance Tribute to Ursula Mamlok with Chamber Music and Dance

In a cross-disciplinary first for Phillips Music, contemporary dance and music are synthesized in a unique project devised by choreographer and composer Miro Magliore as a tribute to composer Ursula Mamlok.

In the intimate setting of the Music Room with the audience seated up close to the performers in the round, the New Chamber Ballet and an ensemble of leading musicians take us on a sonic and visual journey through Mamlok’s delicate, abstract music with dances by three choreographers, revealing powerful themes of loss, displacement, rejection, and reconciliation.

These performances of Stray Bird are made possible in part by support from the Dwight and Ursula Mamlok Foundation.

This performance is 1 hour and 10 minutes without intermission. Audience seating is in the round. Space is limited.

Both performances are SOLD OUT as of January 31, but standby ticket line forms at the door 1/2 hour before the performance.
