Julia Adam Dance is pleased to present SOLIS, the fourth installment of the renowned elemental series that immerses the audience in an experience for all the senses. 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. Together, they have built a team of talented artists to present an event like no other. Julia Adam hails from Ottaway, Ontario. At age 13, she entered the National Ballet School in Toronto and, upon graduation in 1983, spent five years with the National Ballet of Canada. She joined the San Francisco Ballet in 1988, becoming a principal dancer in 1996. Among the choreographers that created works for her are Helgi Tomasson and Mark Morris. In 2002, Ms. Adam retired from dancing and quickly gained recognition as one of the dance world’s rising talents in choreography. 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. Ms. Adam has been featured in Dance Magazine and has received the Isadora Duncan Award for Choreography. Aaron Lucich, a communications professional from the SF Bay Area, spent the last decade researching and documenting the leadership of ecological agriculture. In 2012, after some soul searching and discovering that he wanted to contribute to a survivable future, he founded Holistic Ag an ecosystem services company that advocates, promotes and practices holistically managed agricultural production. On this journey he has managed farming operations and brand development for Traders Point Creamery in Zionsville, IN and consulted to numerous land based organizations including the Sustainable Studies Institute in Corvalis, OR, ZZ2 in South Africa, the MA Center in San Ramon, CA and Biological Capital in Denver, CO.

The season will include a world premiere and two works that have been in the creative process this year, "Critical Mass" and "Room for Elephants". She is honored to be working with company dancers Cassandra Bowser, Ashley Ervin, Robert Perales, Kaley Pruitt, Jen Silver & Megan Wubbenhorst. "Critical Mass" revolves around the powerful force of being anonymous, and what the urban landscape allows of the human expressive condition. It is an incredibly physical, athletic and high energy group work to music by Too Many Zooz, Steve Reich, and World Saxophone Quartet. "Room for Elephants" is a nostalgic, playful, and otherworldly quartet about how we retain structures and physical places that held our sense of home at one time or another. The work looks at memory, and how we keep and perceive those spaces we cannot revisit. The piece is set to several selections by Tin Hat Trio. Tickets $16 in advance, $20 at the door $12 Student price For more information about KPDs July Season, IndieGoGo Fundraising Campaign, Pruitts Works, and the Company Members, visit us at www.KaleyPruittDance.com

This summer the City has teamed up with 95.5 WBRU to bring some of the nation’s best rising talent to the Waterplace stage, the series will feature emerging alternative rock bands paired with regional rising stars. Philadelphia electronic pop duo Marian Hill takes the stage. Comprised of Jeremy Lloyd (production/songwriting) and Samantha Gongol (vocals/songwriting), the pair’s roots can be traced back as far as a middle school talent show during which Lloyd - the son of a conductor and an opera singer - heard Gongol sing for the first time. Many moons later, after Lloyd studied music composition and Gongol cut her teeth in New York as a songwriter, the pair reunited in the former’s bedroom studio. Citing influences ranging from Cole Porter and Ella Fitzgerald, to Kanye and Drake, Marian Hill fuses disparate sources into a compound sound. The band is joined live by bassist and saxophonist Steve Davit. Call Security will open the show.

An addictive fire of passion, love triangle and tragedy.

Chiara Ajkun’s choreography portrays Carmen as a leader of change for women’s free choices. Set apart by her taunting beauty, Carmen lays eyes on Don Josè. Explosive sparks follow, and the ultimate romance of love and passion keeps the audience on the edge of their seats. “[Ajkun’s] Carmen is superb…an outstanding success…[her choreography is] a masterly application in technique…wonderfully more elaborate buildings up and much finer characterization of the various personalities” London Times - Maria Ghirlando

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. He co-starred in the viral short film Color of Reality, which continues to screen at film festivals worldwide and has won numerous awards. LIL BUCK is an International phenomenon. He began jookin’ – a street dance that originated in Memphis – at age 13 and went on to train in hip-hop and ballet.

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)

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.
