With the New York City Ballet Winter season wrapping up this week, those experiencing NYCB withdrawal symptoms will want to check out works from the Ashley Bouder Project. The group will perform at the Peter Norton Symphony Space (95th and Broadway) March 17-18 with several newly commissioned works. New York Jazzharmonic, headed by Ron Wasserman, will be the accompanying orchestra. On the bill are works from modern dance choreographer Liz Gerring creating a pas de deux with Ashley and fellow NYCB Principal Dancer Sarah Mearns; a work created by Ashley and New York Jazzharmonic Associate Director Miho Hazama; and a revival of Susan Stroman’s Blossom Got Kissed set to Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn. NYCB’s Andrew Veyette will also perform. The last Ashley Bouder Project performance was in 2015.
Tickets are available at the Symphony Space website or by calling (212) 864-5400.
Ron has logged around 5,000 performances in every arts genre, including over 900 performances of The Nutcracker as a member of the NYCB Orchestra, according to the Jazzharmonic website. He is also a member of JP Jofre Hard Tango Chamber Band.
