Seasonal Special Happenings

Verb Ballets DanceWorks

When: Thu., May 5 2011

It's time again for DanceWorks, Cleveland Public Theatre's annual showcase of local dance companies. This year, six celebrated troupes will perform over the course of six weekends, beginning tonight through June 5. This weekend's spotlight shines on the contemporary dance company Verb Ballets, which will be performing new, experimental works created by four of Verb's dancers and by artist-in-residence Terence Greene. Part of the company's "Fresh Inventions" series, the works come in a range of styles and themes, accompanied by everything from spoken-word poetry to a string quartet. Also on the program: a performance of Noumenon Mobilus, a 1953 modern-dance classic by choreographer and performance artist Alwin Nikolais. Verb Ballets performs tonight, Friday, and Saturday at CPT's Gordon Square Theatre, 6415 Detroit Ave. Tickets are $10 to $25; purchase by phone at 216-631-2727 or online at — where you will also find a full schedule of upcoming DanceWorks performances. — Elaine T.
