Founder and Artistic Director Douglas Webster, who grew up in North Conway, NH and currently lives in Kittery, Maine, says the IDI performances are called Winter Surprise and Delights and will showcase a mix of world-premiere pieces he choreographed. Says Webster, “Two new works, Revival, set to the music of Mumford and Sons, Jason Castro, and Audra Mae; and New World, a fantasy ice ballet set to a commissioned score by Jonathan Galland; are both designed to lift the spirits during this unprecedented year. We are thrilled to have the opportunity to share this program that focuses on hope, joy, and overcoming struggle.”
