Nora Gibson Contemporary Ballet is committed to presenting ballet that is both beautiful and intellectually bold. Central to the company’s mission is the pursuit of this question: “What is ballet in the 21st Century?” As an American, female choreographer, Gibson is a voice of progress and openness as to the scope of ballet. Gibson’s work is inspired by the beauty of the natural world, as evidenced in mathematics and science, and by working across disciplines to fully realize ballet's aesthetic and reach for all modern thinkers. NGCB provides a platform for interdisciplinary collaboration between dance, music, light installation, and academia.
