Peter Quanz: National Choreographers Initiative

By Julye Huggins
NCI 2010 Choreographer Peter Quanz

Leading up to an exciting performance of new experimental ballets, Canada’s own Peter Quanz is working away with a fresh batch of dancers in southern California at the National Choreographers Initiative. This intensive three-week process has given four choreographers the opportunity to develop new material on sixteen American professional dancers from ballet companies. His peers in the program include Ann Marie deAngelo, Helen Heineman and Viktor Kabaniaev. On July 31st, their work will be showcased at Irvine Barclay Theatre where the choreographers will talk and answer questions about their concepts and ideas.Be sure to check out the March 2009 issue of The Dance Current print magazine for an article about Quanz’s work with the National Ballet of Canada, as well as the online review of Quanz’s piece In Tandem presented at the Canada Dance Festival this past June.
