The Sammy Project!


The Sammy Project!
At the season's close, delight in two contrasting works by major modern choreographer Twyla Tharp and prolific dance maker,
Darrell Grand Moultrie.

~Simply Sammy
Moultrie's world premiere The Sammy Project! is set to the music of long-time favorite
Sammy Davis, Jr. will draw you into the fascinating world of ache and hope that defined the life of this famous entertainer.

~In the Upper Room
Twyla Tharp's In the Upper Room, Cincinnati Ballet's third acquisition from the choreographer, is considered one of her most brilliant works. A combination of explosive dance and athletics, In the Upper Room consistently draws enthusiastic standing ovations. Norma Kamali's striking costumes of bold stripes, tank tops, sneakers and even red pointe shoes, plus a pulsating score by Philip Glass, propel the work's intensity to create sheer exuberance in motion.
