Hear the word vector, and an illustration from an old geometry textbook may come to mind. But instead imagine this: what if rather than slicing across paper, a vector emerged from within a body?

This is precisely what choreographer Julia K. Gleich and producer Lynn Parkerson intended to explore in Quilt, which will premiere at Brooklyn Ballet’s 2013 season titled In 4D, February 28-March 10 at the Actors Fund Arts Center.

Their collaboration began after Parkerson, the artistic director of the Brooklyn Ballet, expressed interest in Gleich’s studies into a vector-based system for creating dance.

CounterPointe, is dedicated to presenting the latest experimental, innovative, risk-taking choreography that shows a depth of investment in ballet by women dance makers working with the pointe shoe. In response to the continual neglect of representation of women ballet choreographers in major ballet companies (notably, the Royal Ballet has not commissioned a work from a female choreographer for the Opera House stage since 1999) this series offers a performances ripe with the latest curated works by women who make dances with the pointe shoe.
Investigating new and old territory the series highlights new work, opening up discussion, and creating a forum for women, young or old, emerging or established, to take risks.
