Always on a quest for new forms and featuring an extraordinary repertory of work by some of the world’s most forward-thinking choreographers, New York-based company Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet celebrates a decade with a BAM debut. Showcasing a remarkable versatility—and a virtuosity that’s grounded in ballet, but far more expansive in style—Cedar Lake’s 16 incredible dancers perform the company’s commissioned pieces over the course of four evenings.

The final evening, Program C, features performances of Crystal Pite’s stark, breathtaking work Grace Engine, Alexander Ekman’s stunningly rhythmic Tuplet, and Jo Strømgren’s theatrical romp Necessity, Again.
