McCarter Theatre welcomes New York-based Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet to Princeton on Friday, January 17 at 8 p.m. Through their daring athletic movement and integration of ballet into contemporary and popular forms, the dancers of Cedar Lake take audiences on a choreographic journey that explores the varied possibilities of movement and multimedia. Since its founding in 2003, Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet has been recognized internationally for its collaborations with diverse choreographers including Alexander Ekman, Crystal Pite, Hofesh Shechter, Jo Strømgren, Andonis Foniadakis, Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, Ohad Naharin and Jirí Kylián. The performance on January 17 will include a dance and multimedia program with performances of Jirí Kylian’s Indigo Rose and Crystal Pite’s Ten Duets on a Theme of Rescue. The 16-member troupe celebrates its 10-year anniversary this year with performances of Rain Dogs by Johan Inger and a new work by Israeli choreographer Emanuel Gat.
