Potential Energies is a modern ballet that breaks barriers between music & movement, inspired by the Millennial Generation’s balancing act of hope & survival.
In a project conceived and directed by NCP Artistic Director Sugar Vendil, the ensemble joins forces with choreographer Barbie Diewald and composer Trevor Gureckis to create Potential Energies, a bold, new modern ballet where musicians transcend their conventional roles. Individual musician and dancer pairs act as two sides to a single identity, attempting to reconcile ambitions with reality. Inspired by the emerging adulthood of the Millennial Generation, the arduous journey of artists, hope and rude awakenings, Potential Energies is a daring undertaking by artists who are not only creating this work, but also living it. This will premiere on May 29, 2014 at BAM Fisher (Fishman Space).

In this scene, music from Act 2 Movement 2 is featured.
