What is failure, and how do we deal with it – as individuals, and as communities? In the new installation/performance FAILURE, choreographer and visual artist Laura Peterson uses language of dance and sculptural design to probe the national consciousness in the aftermath of 2016 Presidential election. Peterson zeroes in on the overwhelming pressure to compete, which is at the heart of the American way of life. Is a small defeat less devastating than a colossal mistake? What is the real outcome of the “winner takes all?”

FREE Performances Featuring The Ashley Bouder Project, CONTINUUM Contemporary/Ballet, Island Moving Company, and Thomas/Ortiz Dance The Ashley Bouder Project, led by New York City Ballet principal dancer Ashley Bouder, is an arts collaborative dedicated to primarily presenting new works by women choreographers and composers. In addition to these commissions, the company is a forum for Bouder's choreographic ideas such as the pas de deux from her work, In Pursuit of, being performed this evening by two New York City Ballet dancers. CONTINUUM Contemporary/Ballet is comprised of classically trained dancers with contemporary artistic voices and a repertory that is fresh, clever, and infectiously dancy. Led by Donna Salgado, the company has fostered collaborations with choreographers from LA, San Francisco, and Amsterdam, appeared at Jacobs Pillow for 3 seasons, and presents works that aim to expand the role of creativity and scholarship in the art of ballet. Tonight features the New York City debut of Prismatic Abstractions, which premiered at the Pillow in 2015 and is choreographed entirely to jazz tunes recorded by Jon Batiste. For 35 years, Island Moving Company, a contemporary ballet company based in Newport, RI, and founded by artistic director Miki Ohlsen, has nurtured collaborations between dance artists and musicians, poets, and visual artists, and is known for its creative use of unusual venues. The company is home to the Great Friends Dance Festival and Great Friends Touring Project, a residency exchange program that creates new opportunities for small and midsized companies. Ohlsen's La Tierra Giro, a work for nine dancers, is being performed tonight, one of over 40 works she has choreographed for the company. Ted Thomas and Frances Ortiz founded Thomas/Ortiz Dance in 2001, melding his urban athleticism with her Latin sensuality, and their combined choreographic and musical sensibilities. The company of twelve culturally-diverse dancers, with backgrounds in both ballet and contemporary dance, perform a repertoire that explores a multitude of thought-provoking and socially-relevant topics and themes, and has appeared at Jacob's Pillow and the Kaatsbaan International Dance Center.

FREE Performances Featuring Limón Dance Company, The Moving Architects, Black Boys Dance Too, and Harlem School of the Arts Dance Ensemble and Junior Dance Ensemble Hailed as one of the world's greatest dance companies, the Limón Dance Company has been at the vanguard of American modern dance since its inception in 1946. It is the living legacy of dance theater developed by José Limón and his mentors, Doris Humphrey and Charles Weidman, whose innovative works revolutionized the American dance. The Company is renowned for its technical mastery and dramatic expression, and demonstrates both the timelessness of José Limón's works and the humanistic vision that guides the repertory choices. The Moving Architects, founded by Erin Carlisle Norton in 2007, is a female-centric dance company known for channeling the authentic complexity of both the current and historical female experience into dance works, all with an edge of charged movement and feminine strength. Black Boys Dance Too is a non-profit organization with a mission to uplift the community and demonstrate the strength and empowerment of the black man through dance, and uniting to keep black culture alive. It is a platform for men of color to showcase their artistry, uplift audiences and educate others in their artistic expression through live dance entertainment, media, illustrations and creative writing. Harlem School of the Arts Dance offers a range of dance classes in classical ballet, modern, hip-hop, jazz, African and tap. Students have experienced the transformative power of dance by taking classes in the Dance Enrichment Program as an extracurricular activity and in the pre-professional programs which produce classically trained, versatile young dancers who then go on to other elite dance schools and programs. Led by Aubrey Lynch, Director of HSA Dance, the Harlem School of the Arts has become a dance education destination.

Showcase featuring all-female talent from around the globe uniting communities through dance Featuring 7pm LOHH Dance Workshop Ladies of Hip Hop Ladies of Hip Hop (LOHH) is the brainchild of Michele Byrd-McPhee (executive director and founder), a self-taught hip hop dance forerunner and longtime feminist. She got her start in street dance as it took shape in the clubs that she frequented while growing up. The organization was established in 2004 with the goal of giving women an outlet to dance uninhibitedly and be themselves without the constraints of the male-dominated hip hop world infringing on them. LOHH is a steadfast force in the world of hip hop dance, that provides a constructive outlet for girls and women to proudly display their work. This progressive union of art and egalitarian philosophy also offers liberating workshops, artist exchange programs and inspiring and educational public talks. LOHH is expanding rapidly too; with events all over the US and Europe (Vienna, Sweden), they have burgeoning chapters in Canada and all the way across the globe in China. Bryd-McPhee carefully curates the LOHH participants, presenting a sterling showing of unbridled energy and heartfelt pieces. Amirah Sackett Amirah Sackett graduated with a B.F.A in Dance from the University of Minnesota and has studied at Tisch School of the Arts in NYC. Amirah has performed and had her choreography featured locally, nationally, and internationally. Amirah has been an active participant and 2009 -2010 dance curator for B-Girl Be, an international festival for women in hip-hop, at Intermedia Arts. Amirah was honored to receive a Jerome Foundation Travel/Study Grant for 2008-09, which allowed her to travel with fellow dancer and recipient Lisa Berman to Rotterdam, Holland. In 2011, Amirah created a show encouraging collaborative works between artists in hip-hop called “The Joint Project” as part of the Catalyst Series for Intermedia Arts. It was at this show that “We’re Muslim, Don’t Panic” debuted, combining Amirah’s love of hip-hop dance and her love of Islam. Amirah along with her dancers Iman and Khadijah have performed as “We’re Muslim, Don’t Panic” at events and school throughout the Twin Cities and abroad including “Band Together 2011 for ARC, “Day Of Dignity” at Masjid A’Nur, “Facing Race” Conference 2012 in Baltimore, MD, and at the Nobel Peace Prize Forum 2013 with Brother Ali. Amirah was honored to perform as a solo artist for Undocunation Denver in 2013 in Denver, CO.

Amirah currently resides in Chicago and is excited to have been chosen to represent hip-hop culture in Bangladesh as part of “Next Level” an initiative by the U.S. State Department and UNC. She will be teaching and choreographing with artists in Dhaka, Bangladesh in the month of November 2014. Amirah believes hip-hop culture, as a whole, gives voice to those often unheard and is a way to uplift, inspire, and bring change to those communities that need it the most.

Atop the expansive Big Mesa Farmstead in West Marin with sweeping views of the West Marin hills, SOLIS explores the themes of fire and our relationship to energy through a transformative experience of locally sourced food and open-air ballet featuring former San Francisco Ballet principal Julia Adam and her corps of elite dancers. Julia Adam Dance is an evolving collaboration and literal marriage between former dancer and choreographer Adam and her husband Aaron Lucich, a producer, rancher and agricultural activist. The two have cultivated a rich team of talented artists and artisans who will create their magic again this summer. “We strive to provide a deep connection to the environment through a wholly immersive experience that brings together dance and local gourmet cuisine in a beautiful outdoor setting,” said Adam, founder of Julia Adam Dance. “This isn't your typical ballet with a catered meal. It's a cultural event rooted in the environment. Our commitment to community, the transparency of the food and the connection to place takes this to a new level. It's very hunter gatherer," added Aaron Lucich. SOLIS is the fourth installment of Julia Adam Dance’s series that is designed to spark the wisdom of what ties us together through community, art, food, and the natural world. Each evening starts with a multi-course, Farm Table feast served family style utilizing transparently sourced food from the local bounty of Marin and Sonoma Counties. Local purveyors include Big Mesa Farmstead, Gospel Flat, Star Route Farms, True Grass Farms pork and lamb and Lucich’s Holistic Ag Beef. Wines from Enkidu, and beers and non-alcoholic libations curated by Mojo. After dinner, guests gather with steaming cups of sipping chocolate and meander to the open-air stage for the world premiere of the latest ballet from Julia Adam Dance. A limited number of tickets are now on sale for the six gatherings of SOLIS during the weekends of July 14-16 and July 21-23, from 5pm – 10pm at Big Mesa Farmstead in West Marin. Tickets are $200 and available at JuliaAdamDance.com About Julia Adam Dance Julia Adam Dance is a cultural experience designed by producer, rancher and agricultural activist Aaron Lucich and his wife dancer and choreographer Julia Adam to connect people to each other and the environment through food and art.

In 1993, she choreographed her first ballet, The Medium is the Message for the San Francisco Ballet’s Choreographic Workshop, drawing attention for her uncanny wit and unique sense of music. Since 1996, Ms. Adam has been commissioned to create over 50 works for San Francisco Ballet, Joffrey Ballet, and more.

Citing influences ranging from Cole Porter and Ella Fitzgerald, to Kanye and Drake, Marian Hill fuses disparate sources into a compound sound.

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)
