Dance Theatre of Harlem (DTH) and Virginia Arts Festival (VAF), with support from the Kennedy Center, have commissioned a new ballet by Claudia Schreier with an original score by Jessie Montgomery for the DTH repertoire. Neoclassical in form, Schreier will create the work on 12 DTH dancers, and Montgomery’s quartet will record and perform the music. This ballet is being commissioned as part of two important cultural milestones: DTH’s landmark 50th Anniversary Season, and “American Evolution,” a statewide arts and education initiative wherein VAF is a lead partner, that aims to recognize the often-overlooked contributions of women and people of color through 400 years of Virginia history. Estimated artist fee: $45,000/performance; $85,000/week
