The Lar Lubovitch Dance Company has received an award from New Music USA during the funder’s third round of project grants.

The Lubovitch company has received an award from New Music USA for its project The Black Rose, which was conceived and choreographed by Lar Lubovitch, with an original commissioned score by Scott Marshall, costumes by Fritz Masten, and lighting by Jack Mehler. The Black Rose premiered on October 15, 2014 at the Joyce Theater, and it will next be performed on tour throughout the United States from August—December 2015.

The work was previously honored with an award from the New England Foundation for the Arts’ National Dance Project and with praise by critics who called it a “cinematic ballet that is both alluring and disturbing.” Writers found it “macabre,” “hallucinogenic,” “lustrous and evocative.” The lead woman (Mucuy Bolles) was called “brilliant” and “gorgeous,” and the two lead men (Reid Bartelme and Barton Cowperthwaite) “were both outstanding” and “perfect.” (For an extensive collection of articles about the dance, which are the sources for these quotes, click here.)

The 62 projects receiving awards today from New Music USA include concerts and recordings as well as dance, film, theater, opera, and more, all involving contemporary music as an essential element. The recipients are all extraordinarily distinguished -- fewer than 5% of 1,242 proposed projects were awarded support.

Including the awards announced today, New Music USA's project grants program, launched in October 2013, has now distributed almost $1,000,000 in support of 179 projects since New Music USA was formed by merging its legacy organizations: Meet The Composer and the American Music Center. Awarded projects from all three rounds can be discovered, explored and followed by the public at
. The overarching goal of project grants is to reach and aggregate the communities of new music enthusiasts, irrespective of genre preferences, and allow the public to discover great new artistic work.
