Every year, Cleveland Public Theatre welcomes Northeast Ohio's most adventurous contemporary dance companies to the CPT stage for remarkable and premiere dance performances. DanceWorks Week 1 features work created by Inlet Dance Theatre.

The James Levin Theatre is ADA-compliant featuring a patron elevator and an all-gender, wheelchair accessible restroom.

Content Warning: DanceWorks is a presented series, which means we don’t always know the content entirely. CPT supports art in development, as well as social justice oriented-work, and sensitive material may be explored. Because of the nature of art in development, we can’t provide additional content warnings for DanceWorks performances.



Inlet Dance Theatre presents new, moving, and unique athletic works including Hiding and Revealing, a bespoke work about Holocaust survivor stories, Caliban Ascendant, a commissioned work by Cleveland composer Ty Emerson focusing on the topic of colonization extracted from Shakespeare’s The Tempest, and the world premiere of Red Tape, exploring hindering bureaucracy.

About Inlet Dance Theatre

Inlet Dance Theatre is one of the most unique professional contemporary dance companies hailing from the Midwest because Inlet’s ensemble-based culture, rooted in American Modern Dance, purposefully focuses on craftsmanship and mastery while employing a collaborative creative process in the development of new work. Founded in Cleveland, OH, in 2001 by Executive/Artistic Director Bill Wade, Inlet embodies his long-standing belief that a collaborative creative process is more inclusive than the traditional autocratic leadership hierarchy and results in work that is surprisingly diverse. Inlet’s repertory intentionally speaks creatively about human life issues in a life-giving manner. The company presents a wide aesthetic range of works, from abstract to narrative, that speaks to what could be, rather than only what is. Inlet develops and teaches people from the inside-out in all of the company’s design-centric programming, “using dance to further people.” www.inletdance.org
