I’m excited to share that I just had a premiere in Salt Lake City, Utah – I was commissioned by choreographer Shane Urton to score his new dance-theatre creation “Sweetspot” (I called the score “Study II” & made a score-video). This was Shane and I’s first time working together, AND my first time working with pianist Olena Mozil who played wonderfully on the recording! The folks from RDT Utah did a phenomenal job presenting the work; Caleb Daly, Trung “Daniel” Do, Jonathan Kim, Megan O’Brien, Ursula Perry and Caitlyn Richter and even scored us a warm, warm review:

“Shane Urton’s Sweetspot was a brilliant organic study of sweet spots in dance movement that grew in metaphorical complexity, along with dazzling lighting design executed by Pilar I. and an impressive solo piano score by Adam Vincent Clarke and performed and recorded by Olena Mozil.”

“The lighting design beautifully paralleled Clarke’s excellent score, marking how discrete phrases of music appear and eventually form a melodic line, in the first section. As manifested in the lighting, the music accelerates to its most intense drive in the middle section before losing its momentum in the closing section, while calls for a response or affirmation are left unanswered, as they fade into silence.”

TheaterKrant’s review of the Dutch premiere of Âmok/Âmok’s contr (a / o) vers (e / u)s at the Jonge Harten Festival.

“With that permanent threat of all those stacked plates that she is getting closer to. She won’t…” –

“It’s uncompromising and terrifying. Indeed: contra and versus. In their radical approach to their subject, Borremans and Clarke leave little to be desired.”-

Duet from John-William Watson’s Hang in there, Baby! performed by the wonderful Susato Trio. A playful duo that, reminiscent of miming, has an air of playfulness framed by something a bit more sinister. HITB premiered at Sadler’s Wells in October, 2022.

La Scena Musicale reviews Clarke’s La Danse Balkanique and his project Est-Ouest whilst on tour in Canada.

“…[La Danse Balkanique] proved to be the most explosive and festive of all, with occasional waves of lyricism. Always in the spirit of merging cultures together, the driving force of the project, the work borrowed from Bulgarian rhythms which gave it a exhilariting character.” – La Scena Musicale
