What I love most about Christopher K. Morgan & Artists, besides the amazing film promos, is that by simply watching the movement, I want to dance. The quality and organic nature of the movement, combined with partnering and altering of the physical space they are performing in with props or set design, creates an idea or emotion that always draws me into the work.
CityDance resident artist Christopher K. Morgan and his company, Christopher K. Morgan & Artists (CKM&A) will perform Spiraling, a concert featuring Morgan’s “forward thinking choreography” (Ballet-Dance Magazine) this weekend at the CityDance Studio Theater at Strathmore. Christopher K. Morgan’s C’est le ton qui fait la chanson, a playful work set to nostalgic 1930′s French music will open the program.
Over the 2012/13 season, CKM&A has focused on collaboration and is demonstrating this focus by presenting CityDance Conservatory, along with the Dance Exchange in this concert.

CityDance Conservatory is debuting a new contemporary ballet work that Morgan was commissioned to create. Also, on the program is Morgan’s critically acclaimed piece, Rice, which was hailed by The New York Times as “charming and poignant.”
The Dance Exchange will present a work in progress excerpt of Ground Loss by their Resident Artist Sarah Levitt. Closing the program will be the company premiere of Morgan’s 2012 work De-Generate.
The performances this Saturday an Sunday will be followed by a discussion with the artists, providing audiences with a unique opportunity to deepen their understanding of the work, ask questions, and share their thoughts. You can order tickets online or call the office at 301.581.5100. Tickets are $20 for students and $25 for general admission.
