BLUEPRINT is designed to expose students to the best instructors in both the ballet and contemporary fields from New York City and around the world. It is designed to encourage the formation of important industry relationships that will help them to develop more career opportunities and enrich their current dance network. Peridance Capezio Center brings this unique and exciting Intensive experience to pre-professional Ballet and Contemporary dancers, ages 17-22. BLUEPRINT is bridging the gap between conservatory ballet technique and the innovation of the current contemporary dance scene. It brings dancers face to face with current influencial dance educators and immerses them into a true professional work environment. During their time in NYC, these emerging artists polish their technique, work closely with prestigious current contemporary choreographers from NYC and abroad, and develop their own voice as an artist. At the end of the two weeks, dancers get to perform the repertory learned in the intensive on a professional New York City stage. The audience of this invitation only performance include families of the dancers, many of the choreographers who set work, as well as many other artists and choreographers in the NYC area, providing opportunity to secure future employment with working industry professionals. Come see these thriving and talented students from all over the world and country perform work and repertoire by: Lillian Barbeito of BODYTRAFFIC, Alex Ketley, Founder of The Foundry and Igal Perry, Artistic Director of Peridance Contemporary Dance Company.

The last of three evenings features Wild Beast Dance | Tammy Carrasco, Gabriella Carmichael, Micayla Wynn & Artists, biSouth Movement created by Adrianne Ansley and Colton Wall, Marion Spencer, and Corinne Shearer and Dancers. ABOUT THE WORK Away! Anchored Agunah by Micayla Wynn & Artists explores the unfinished lens of a kinesthetic experience. Characters and relationships take root as these women strut, scream, and shimmy through space. As preordained, survival of the human spirit embraces congregation of souls who battle life’s hostilities while seeking transient joy. Wild Beast Dance | Tammy Carrasco presents a new solo, Image of an Heirloom, which addresses a personal inquiry into the notion of blood memory. In this solo, Carrasco asks: how do histories, told and untold, live in the body and effect the way she lives in and understands the world? Through improvisation, Carrasco pursues the ways her flesh, vitality, consciousness, and physical range of expression are heirlooms, bridging a contemporary self to a lineage. Corinne Shearer and Dancers presents Take Me as I'm Not, a dystopian and dream-like interrogation of identity and the mingling of past, present, and future selves. Gabriella Carmichael premieres a collaborative female trio that serves as an excerpt to something big and brewing, musical, glamorous, and true. biSouth Movement presents their first NYC collaborated work, Cuffed&Pleated, inspired by the idea of two individuals embodying the architectural arc within the spectrum of self judgment. Marion Spencer presents a second draft of a dance that is about having relationships with places in the same way that you have relationships with people. It is about glitter and celebration and their power as a cover-up of grief and despair. Image: Corinne Shearer and Dancers photo by Jillian Hobbs

Mission Peridance Youth Ensemble has two major goals: 1. To provide dance training of the highest caliber to young dancers, preparing them for a professional career in dance. 2. To make the art of dance accessible to at-risk youth, through free performances, interactive workshops and seminars. About Peridance Youth Ensemble was founded in 2000 as a natural extension of the professional non-profit Peridance Contemporary Dance Company. It is now separated into two companies: the Jr. Youth Ensemble and the Sr. Youth Ensemble. The Ensemble dancers, aged 14-18 years old, are trained extensively within The School at Peridance's Pre-Professional Training Program and enjoy multiple performance opportunities, representing both Peridance Capezio Center and the main Company in their outreach activities. Training and performing with Peridance Youth Ensemble and later with Peridance's Certificate Program prepares young dancers who are pursuing a professional career in dance to join Peridance Contemporary Dance Company or, alternatively, an academic route such as a university degree program. A pre-professional training program for dancers ages 14 to 18 years old and not-for-profit outreach youth dance companies. In addition to the extensive, well-rounded curriculum of classes, Ensemble dancers have the opportunity to work closely with renowned choreographers and to participate in performances in New York City! Additionally, these dancers serve as a beacon of Peridance's artistic and educational youth activities, performing, mentoring and teaching workshops to at-risk youth. Training Peridance Youth Ensemble's dancers are accepted by audition only. This highly individualized training program offers a well-rounded curriculum comprised of weekly technique and composition classes. The devoted faculty provides a positive and healthy training environment. Faculty includes Founder and Artistic Director Igal Perry, Contemporary choreographer Kristin Sudeikis, and Peridance's Reagan Wood and Marlena Wolfe.PerformingIn addition to an extensive, well-rounded curriculum, dancers learn choreography from emerging and established artists, which they later perform in different venues around the city. Choreographers to date include Martha Graham (set on the Company by Marnie Thomas), Robert Battle, Igal Perry, Sean Curran, Kate Skartepowska, Kristin Sudeikis, Diego Funes, Hernando Cortez, and Gregory Dolbashian. Under the direction of Diego Funes, Ensemble dancers are offered the opportunity to explore time, space, and energy, developing their own unique artistic voice and creating original choreography. This choreography is later showcased in their Annual Spring Choreography Showcase and in outside venues such as the 92nd Street Y's "High at Noon Series" and WOW Cafe.OutreachFor the past 12 years, Peridance Youth Ensemble has positively influenced hundreds of children from various organizations by extending their knowledge and love for dance through performances and interactive workshops, inspiring participants and enhancing their sense of community. The ensemble has worked with organizations include the University Settlement, Services at the Beacon and Turn 2 Foundation.ContactFor more information and to audition please contact the Youth Ensemble Director Diego Funes at 212-505-0886 or youthensemble@peridance.com.

Jacqulyn Buglisi's moving 9/11 Table of Silence Project, a free public performance tribute to 9/11 and prayer for peace and healing, returns to Lincoln Center for the 7th year. Performed around the Josie Robertson Plaza fountain, the 100+ dancers, led by Buglisi Dance Theatre, is a call to action for peace. Choreographer Buglisi was inspired to create the breathtaking ceremony after seeing Italian visual artist Rossella Vasta's sculptural installation of 100 ceramic plates that represent a banquet table uniting humanity. The ceremony begins at 8:15 am and ends precisely at 8:46 am, the time that American Airlines Flight 11 crashed into the North Tower.

The performance of the self in social media and identity politics illustrates a skewed version of a person… one where authenticity is questioned and self-aggrandizement is common. QBDG’s new production unravels the millennial obsession with the self and it's uncanny likeness to art-making. Who holds the power in an identity? Does truth lie in the performance or the perception? "But Enough About Me" utilizes live and pre-recorded video to offer multiple sight lines into identity and it's performance. The piece is inspired by the sci-fi trope of the android, Dadaism, and Miley Cyrus. A world is created where the seams between the objecthood and personhood of an individual unravel, laying bare the myth of identity. Photo by Bren Munroe.

It asks the same question that Faustin asked people in the streets and fields in 2006: what has become of your dreams in war-ravaged Congo? Set to Mozart’s Requiem, performed live by rising opera star Serge Kakudji, dancers and actors move through a landscape of ruins, looking for remainders of their dreams. Faustin Linyekula, an internationally renowned dancer, founded Studios Kabako, a space for contemporary dance serving his native Democratic Republic of Congo. Faustin lives and works in Kisangani, North-East of the Democratic Republic of Congo, former Zaire, former Belgian Congo, former independent state of Congo. Faustin teaches in Africa, across Europe, and in the United States. kabako.org Co-presented with the French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF)’s Crossing the Line Festival. Part of BRIDGING, an initiative co-developed and supported by The Edmond de Rothschild Foundations. METTE INGVARTSEN: 7 PLEASURES September 29 – 30 at 7:30 pm At the heart of Mette Ingvartsen's 7 Pleasures, 12 performers confront notions of nudity, body politics and sexual practice, questioning the borders between private and public space by literally placing the naked body in the middle of the theater public. In this American premiere, pleasure becomes a perceptual as much as a political question. How do we use pleasures joyful potential to disrupt cliché images attached to nudity and sexuality? Mette Ingvartsen is a Danish choreographer and dancer. Questions of kinesthesia, perception, affect and sensation have been crucial to most of her work, which includes several site-specific propositions and have been seen around the world. Mette was artist-in-residence at the KAAITHEATER in Brussels from 2013 till 2016 and is currently part of the artistic team at Volksbühne in Berlin. metteingvartsen.net BALLETCOLLECTIVE October 25– 27 at 7:30 pm BalletCollective’s 2017 program, Translation, consists of two new ballet-based works that are the result of experimental collaborations between boundary-pushing artists, composers and choreographers. The first work will feature contributions from choreographer and BalletCollective founder Troy Schumacher, artist Sergio Mora-Diaz, composer Julianna Barwick and speculative fiction writer and translator Ken Liu. The second will feature choreographer Gabrielle Lamb, composer Caleb Burhans, and artist Trevor Paglen. While each work is distinct, both are rooted in an exploration of the concept of translation in contemporary culture. BalletCollective connects artists, composers, and choreographers to create new ballet-based works. Through a unique consideration of process, the Collective produces collaborative works that expand the boundaries of artistic disciplines and resonate with a wide audience. Founded in 2010 by choreographer Troy Schumacher, BalletCollective has collaborated with over 50 artistic partners and produced ten new works. www.balletcollective.com JÉRÔME BEL: GALA March 1 and 2 at 7:30 pm; March 3 at 3pm Featuring amateurs, professionals and everything in between, the 20 dancers of Gala will be cast in NYC from all walks of life. Through their movement, the gentle humanity of each performer lights up this inspired production. Breaking the sanctity of the stage, this is a jumble of joys, failures, and stumbling insights into the uniting power of dance. Jérôme Bel, the “mischievously entertaining” (The Guardian) Paris-based choreographer, explores the relationship between choreography and popular culture, dancer and audience, often using humor to break the formality of a theater apparatus. Bel’s work has often been referred to as conceptual. He questions both art and contemporary dance by deconstructing modes of presentation and the notion of authorship while problematizing the historical prominence of technical virtuosity in dance. jeromebel.fr Gala is part of the third annual Tilt Kids Festival, a cultural event for families presented by the Cultural Services of the French Embassy and the French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF). MAI: LIL BUCK AND JON BOOGZ: LOVE HEALS ALL WOUNDS April 13 at 7:30 pm; April 14 at 3 pm and 7:30 pm Love Heals All Wounds, an evening-length work by MAI (Movement Art Is), addresses social issues such as police brutality and violence in America while seeking to promote diversity, inclusion, and empathy as a uniting force. MAI (Movement Art Is), co-founded by Jon Boogz and Lil Buck, uses movement artistry to inspire and change the world while elevating the artistic educational and social impact of dance. Through movement art films, workshops, performances and exhibitions, MAI is resetting the spectrum that defines dance. movementartis.com, Jon Boogz is a movement artist, choreographer and director who seeks to push the evolution of what dance can be – sharing with audiences of all backgrounds an appreciation of the melding of art forms while inspiring and bringing awareness to social issues.

Since then he has collaborated with a broad spectrum of artists across the world, and is an avid arts education advocate and recipient of the WSJ Innovator Award. MEG STUART/DAMAGED GOODS & MÜNCHNER KAMMERSPIELE UNTIL OUR HEARTS STOP May 4 – 5 at 7:30 pm In Until Our Hearts Stop, an American premiere, six performers and three musicians find themselves in a place that is both a nightclub and an arena: an unreliable, high-octane refuge, a place of desire and illusion, experiencing extreme intimacy at each other’s hands. To the sound of throbbing basses, piano and drums - a mix between improvisation and composition - they connect and explore each other, drawing the audience into their immersive world. Meg Stuart is a New Orleans-born choreographer and dancer living and working in Berlin and Brussels. Stuart moved to New York in 1983 and was actively involved in the downtown New York dance scene. Together with her company, Damaged Goods, she has created over 30 stage works, ranging from solos to large-scale choreographies, site-specific creations and improvisation projects.

Dance St. Louis kicks off its 2017-18 season with "TAP Dynamics," a powerful, lively production that combines tap with live jazz music featuring "three of world's greatest tap dancers" (The New York Times). The production consists of Jason Samuels Smith's "Going The Miles" and excerpts from Dormeshia Sumbry-Edwards' "And Still You Must Swing," performed by the three virtuoso award-winning tap dancers: Jason Samuels Smith (Emmy & American Choreography Awards), Dormeshia Sumbry-Edwards (Astaire Award for Best Performance, Princess Grace Statue Award), and Derick K. Grant (Ovation & Helen Hayes Awards). The trio are considered three of today's most influential and celebrated tap dance luminaries in the world. "And Still You Must Swing" captures the heart and legacy of tap dance and honors the overwhelming influence of jazz roots on this outstanding art form. Named "Best Dance Performance" in 2016 by The New York Times, it's a rhythmic feast including live music, dynamic choreography and stunning improvisation. "Going The Miles" takes a step further than simply tributing Mr. Davis, one of the world's greatest American jazz artists.The dancers engage on a musical odyssey, celebrating the diversity of contributions that our respective culture and collective consciousness continues to make through two of the world's most thriving American art forms. The work emphasizes interplay inspired by three of Miles' iconic tunes, highlighting just why "improvisation" is still the highest expression of these forms. * Performance-only tickets are $20 and available through Metrotix (www.metrotix.com) * Performance plus post-performance cocktail party tickets are $40 through Dance St. Louis (www.dancestlouis.org) * Performance plus post-performance dinner with drinks are $65 through Dance St. Louis (www.dancestlouis.org)

By Marc Bamuthi Joseph/The Living Word Project Directed by Michael John Garcés Choreography by Stacey Printz Composed by Tommy Shepherd Set and video design by David Szlasa Lighting design by Tom Ontiveros Sound design by Rob Kaplowitz Costume design by Meghan Healy New York Premiere BAM Harvey Theater (651 Fulton Street) Oct 18—21 at 7:30PM Tickets: $25, 35, 45 (weekday); $30, 40, 55 (weekend) (prices subject to change after July 23) “The two places on earth I actually feel free aren’t coordinates, they’re moments. The first is inside of dance, somewhere between rising up against gravity and a sensation that the air beneath my body is falling in love with its weight, carrying me so that I might never come down. The second place is after scoring a goal on the soccer pitch, wherein my body floods with the chemical they bottle up in EpiPens to revive the dead. I am weightless...raceless...” –Marc Bamuthi Joseph /peh-LO-tah/, a performance work by award-winning poet-performer Marc Bamuthi Joseph, explores the links between dance and sport, as well as the complexities of soccer—the world’s most popular game—as a source of both joy and exploitation. Based on the artist’s own experiences playing the game as an American child of Haitian immigrants, as well as his travel journals from visits to World Cups in South Africa and Brazil, /peh-LO-tah/ deftly mines the political, economic, and social significance of the spinning ball (pelota). It is, per Joseph himself: “a dance about the economy, choreographed to the rhythm of the beautiful game.” /peh-LO-tah/ combines Joseph’s signature spoken word and charismatic storytelling with live music and choreography inspired by South African and Brazilian movement styles and techniques from the soccer field. The production also encompasses silhouette and shadow play, filmed imagery and video production, and of course the powerful physicality of the production’s dancers and musicians, delivering a multi-dimensional theatrical experience both immersive and illuminating. Marc Bamuthi Joseph is one of America’s most vital voices in performance, arts education, and artistic curation. After appearing on Broadway as a young actor, Joseph developed several poetry-based works for the stage, including Word Becomes Flesh, Scourge, and the break/s, that have toured across the US, Europe, and Africa. Joseph's Word Becomes Flesh was re- mounted by Theater Alliance in 2016 and earned five Helen Hayes Awards in May of 2017. Joseph is an inaugural recipient of the Guggenheim Social Practice initiative, a United States Artists Rockefeller Fellowship honoree, a 2011 Herb Alpert Award winner, and an inaugural recipient of the Doris Duke Performing Artist Award. In pursuit of affirmations of black life in the public realm, he co-founded the Life is Living Festival for Youth Speaks, and created the installation Black Joy in the Hour of Chaos for Creative Time. Joseph is currently completing a new libretto with Bill T. Jones for the Opera Philadelphia while serving as Chief of Program and Pedagogy at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. Joseph was last at BAM with red, black & GREEN: a blues (Next Wave 2012), a performance work and multimedia installation. Commissioned by the Kennedy Center for the Arts and the Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA), Chicago. Produced by MAPP International Productions

Virago-Man Dem is the newest evening-length, experimental dance-theatre work by Cynthia Oliver, whose company is making its Chicago debut. Virago-Man Dem is a nuanced study in masculinities and their multiplicities within cultures of Caribbean and African-American communities. The work captures various masculinities through movement, spoken language and visual design and explores the expressions particular to Caribbean and African-American black masculinities as they are performed and expressed by men, staged on male bodies, but designed and interpreted by a woman. Virago-Man Dem is based on the lives of the men performing it—Duane Cyrus, Jonathan Gonzalez and Niall Noel Jones—and asks, “How can a woman choreograph masculinity without resorting to stereotypes, but instead locate its nuances, challenges and ambiguities? Those very elements that black communities know so well and yet see rarely reflected in the culture at large?”

Saint Louis Ballet opens its 2017-2018 season with Giselle, a hauntingly beautiful ballet that’s in the repertoire of all the world’s top ballet companies. Re-staged by Saint Louis Ballet’s Artistic Director Gen Horiuchi, it is considered to be the greatest Romantic ballet of all time. Giselle is a peasant girl who, upon discovering her lover is betrothed to another, dies of a broken heart. But a group of supernatural women, the “Wilis”, summon her from the grave and target her lover for death. Giselle’s great love frees him from their grasp. Giselle debuted by the Ballet du Théâtre de l'Académie Royale de Musique in Paris in 1841, with Italian ballerina Carlotta Grisi as Giselle. A “must-see” for the ballet lover, Giselle was staged across Europe, Russia, and the United States. The traditional choreography derives from revivals staged by Marius Petipa during the late 19th/early 20th centuries for St. Petersburg’s Imperial Ballet. Librettists Jules-Henri Vernoy de Saint-Georges and Théophile Gautier were inspired by a prose passage about the Wilis in De l'Allemagne, by Heinrich Heine, and from the poem "Fantômes" in Les Orientales by Victor Hugo. Adolphe Adam composed the music; Jean Coralli and Jules Perrot created the original choreography.

The hardcore of this practice is to gain freedom in motion. By moving away from any ideology, style or form, we can reexamine our physical abilities with fresh eyes. The work refers to information from various movement disciplines (contact improvisation, martial arts, somatic practices & contemporary dance) and offers a wide spectrum of tools to study our body, to understand movement and communicate physically. MAIN STUDY TOPICS: - Body preparation (warm-up/cool-down) - Physical Adaptation - Flexibility and movement fluidity - Undulation and spiral patterns - Muscle tonus - Hands as feet and feet as hands - Reflexive awareness - Structural limitations & manipulation - Freedom in expression The work passes through various constellations (solo, duet or group work), studying the never ending possibilities that occur in dynamic improvisations. LEVEL: The workshop is open for beginners and advanced movers. LANGUAGE: Language is english Translation into german is possible WATCH MATAN’S VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PzXq3ZtcXfM https://www.youtube.com/user/justobehappy https://vimeo.com/matanlevkowich BIO MATAN LEVKOWICH: Matan Levkowich is a dancer, choreographer and graphic designer. Movement Lab represents all his artistic engagements in the field of dance and performance. Matan's approach to movement is based on the study of the body's intuition. The study of intuition enables to navigate through instability and develops trust in the body's capacities. His choreographic work is inspired by social phenomena and human behaviour. From his base in Vienna, Austria, he tours around Europe, presenting his choreographic work, performing and leading workshops. http://matanlevkowich.com/ A WONDERFUL LOCATION: EDEN***** STUDIOS Breite Strasse 43 13187 Berlin (Pankow) http://www.dock11-berlin.de/index.php/cat/c4_Service.html …scroll down to "STUDIO 190.EG,“ in Haus 2 TRAFFIC LINKS: Tram-Station „Pankow-Kirche“: M1, M50 U & S-Bahn Pankow: U2, M27, S2, S8, RE3, RE5 Bus: 107, 155, 250, 255, X54, N50, N2 https://www.google.de/maps?daddr=13187+Berlin,+Breite+Strasse+43

Miami City Ballet’s new redesign of the magical George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker® will feature enchanting new costumes and sets by the designer-artist power couple Isabel and Ruben Toledo, Balanchine’s glorious choreography and Tchaikovsky’s beloved score. The production, co-commissioned by The Music Center in Los Angeles, will run at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts in Miami from December 15 – 24, 2017. All performances will feature live music performed by the Miami City Ballet’s Opus One Orchestra, conducted by Gary Sheldon. The production will have its world premiere in Los Angeles on December 7, 2017. Isabel and Ruben Toledo’s fanciful new sets and costumes will enhance this classic holiday tale of a young girl and her magical Nutcracker Prince, who journey to an enchanted kingdom where heroic toy soldiers battle giant mice, and a glittering Sugarplum Fairy dwells in a magical Land of Sweets. Miami City Ballet is one of the few companies in the country to continuously perform George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker®, which it has done for almost 30 years. The production features a cast of over 100, including 70 children. Following the Miami engagement, the new production will run at the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts in West Palm Beach from December 28 – 30, 2017, opening with a special family-friendly afternoon performance. Lourdes Lopez, Miami City Ballet’s Artistic Director, said, “There’s no more popular ballet than George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker®, and no more brilliant and magical a ballet narrative. Audiences – grownups as well as children – come back to it again and again, for Tchaikovsky’s great score, for its stage magic, and for its profound insight into childhood. What an honor to work with Isabel and Ruben Toledo, two great artists who understand the importance and impact of this work through generations, and with a great artistic team that includes Wendall Harrington and James Ingalls. They will create a new production that uniquely belongs to Miami City Ballet and will become the highlight of the holiday season in Florida.” “We are inspired by Balanchine’s elegant, witty vision and Tchaikovsky’s lush compositions,” said Ruben Toledo. “The story’s links between the mystical human imagination, the language of dreams and the power of transformation influenced our designs, and allowed us to imagine worlds of moonlit landscapes, frozen wonders, and a light-filled Caribbean paradise, reflecting our Cuban heritage.” Isabel and Ruben Toledo are internationally renowned artists in the worlds of high fashion, style and design. The couple has strong ties to Miami and South Florida: In 2012, MDC’s Freedom Tower hosted “Toledo/Toledo: Full Circle,” a retrospective of three decades of their creative collaboration; they received a Lifetime Achievement Award by Fashion Group International, presented in Miami in 2011; and are currently collaborating on design elements for the new Park Grove Residential Towers in Coconut Grove. They are recipients of the 2005 National Design Award from the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum. Isabel Toledo was nominated for a 2014 Tony Award for her costume designs for the Broadway musical revue After Midnight and designed costumes for Christopher Wheeldon’s Commedia and Twyla Tharp’s Yemayá. Toledo, who has been described as a radical classicist, has been designing and exhibiting her collections twice-yearly since 1984 and became an international household name when she created the lemongrass lace coat dress worn by former First Lady Michelle Obama at President Obama's first inauguration in 2009. Ruben Toledo has created illustrations for such prestigious publications as The New Yorker, Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, Town & Country and The New York Times, among others. His work has been exhibited at prestigious institutions including The Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute, Victoria and Albert Museum in London and Pitti Palace in Italy. Wendall K. Harrington is an award-winning projection designer, known as the godmother of modern projection design. Her work has been seen in a range of diverse disciplines, including theater, multi-media design, opera, ballet and concert production. Lighting designer James K. Ingalls is known for his work on Broadway and with international and national ballet and opera companies. Both Harrington and Ingalls most recently worked with Miami City Ballet on the projections and lighting for Alexei Ratmansky’s The Fairy’s Kiss, which had its world premiere during the 2016-17 season.

Presented by the Dance Center of Columbia College Chicago. Choreographer Lin-Hwai min's newest evening-length work, Formosa, takes the homeland as inspiration for a work of abstract beauty born from land and lore. Using gesture, script, song and other elements from the island as raw material, Lin and dancers create a lustrous, transfigured sphere in which only the universal remains a playground of love and life, mediated by tragedy, hope and rebirth. Recorded music by award-winning indigenous singer Sangpuy serves as the soundtrack as the dancers stomp, sway, dash and dart. With unparalleled grace, they mingle in intimations of community, making tribal ritual and urban bustle seem as one. Luminous projected images of Chinese character typefaces, interlocked and overlapped, provide the stunning visual backdrop. Devoid of specific meanings, they merge in teeming thickets to evoke a host of imagery: mountains and rivers, earthquakes and tsunamis, ancient inscriptions, a black sun. They seem to imply writing as a precarious vehicle for memories, which blur and recombine at the whim of history’s wind. At the work’s end, a blue sea appears amid the characters, only to wash them away in the waves.

In the spring, the Dance Center conducts a two-week festival focusing on ways in which concert dance presentation can be a document of process rather than dance as a consumable product. Process v. Product invites choreographers, dancers, presenters, students of dance and audiences to consider and reflect on ideas around how and why the creation, practice and witness of dancing can be more than a product for paying spectators. As part of this festival, Bebe Miller Company presents In a Rhythm, a suite of new dance works based on the dynamics of adaptation and translation. Inspired by the writings of Gertrude Stein, Toni Morrison and David Foster Wallace, whose voices capture diverse cultural relevancies through their structure of language, In a Rhythm looks at the syntax of movement—how we apprehend meaning through the juxtaposed dynamics of action and context in time and space. Miller is creating this work within an overarching collaborative project, The Making Room, an investigation into innovative ways of sharing the creative process.
