CKM&A concludes the 2013-2014 season in their artistic home at ADI with an evening featuring two world premieres and a special anniversary reconstruction. In The Cold Room is a new work for the women of CKM&A that explores reactions to light, dark, and temperature to create an abstract examination of isolation and connection. Also on the program will be a world premiere duet on Corey Landolt and Andile Ndlovu, guest artists appearing courtesy of The Washington Ballet. Both of these world premieres will feature original music played live by electric cellist/composer Wytold. Closing the program, Morgan will perform his signature solo The Measure of a Man to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of this work
