The world premiere of “A New Stage” – curated and starring renowned New York City Ballet Principal Dancer, Tiler Peck – gives you a front-row seat to experience world-class artistry from the comfort of your home, with three incredible performances of styles from ballet to hip-hop to tap.
Together for the first time, Tiler Peck, dancer Charles “Lil Buck” Riley, Broadway star Sierra Boggess (“Phantom of the Opera”), Brooklyn Mack, and the Syncopated Ladies take the stage and collaborate in new works by Chloe Arnold and Jennifer Weber (“& Juliet”), and a world premiere from Tony® Award Winner, Christopher Wheeldon (“An American in Paris” musical).
In addition to each performance, you’ll get behind-the-scenes access to see how this reimagined production came together in the midst of a global pandemic. From rehearsals over Zoom, to collaborating in quarantine, these artists’ passion for creating and bringing new art to the beautiful Arts community gave birth to a new way, a new form…A New Stage.
Tiler Peck commented, “Creativity is what drives me and fills my soul. During the quarantine I have loved dancing at home but still longed to be on the stage, performing with my peers, expressing myself in the best way I know how to. My heart was heavy for all of the artists out there who felt like me and all of the Arts patrons who missed watching dance so badly. I came up with the idea for A New Stage to create new material that is of-the-now and fill the dark theaters and stages with life. I called some of the artists I love and respect most to join me. Together with CLI Studios, we (safely) created an evening I am very proud to share.”
“A New Stage” will be available to stream starting October 16, only on CLI Studios for $19.99. Buy a ticket at clistudios.com/anewstage. The performance was filmed at the historic La Mirada Theatre in La Mirada, CA, supporting our local Los Angeles stages.
