Repetory troupe reinvents itself with a fresh vision, a new name

By STEVE SUCATO

For more than a decade, Cleveland's Repertory Project has billed itself as "a different dance company." That phrase took on new meaning a year ago, when newly appointed artistic director Hernando Cortez took over the company and literally made it different.

Cortez reinvented the Repertory Project, bringing in a radically different yet popular movement style, hiring a new corps of highly skilled dancers and acquiring several modern-dance masterworks.

What's in a name?

Not much, when it comes to Verb Ballets, the company formerly known as the Repertory Project.

The ensemble's trustees were on the right track when they decided a new name was needed to affirm the dramatic changes made over the last year by artistic director Hernando Cortez. No longer a women's collective performing postmodern choreography, the company had hired a new contingent of accomplished male and female dancers and had begun to build an attractive collection of modern-dance classics and contemporary ballets.
