NEW YORK THEATRE BALLET Announces 2016-17 Season New York Theatre Ballet announces the 2016-17 season, which will include repertory performances throughout the year. This season, New York Theatre Ballet continues to provide a platform for female choreographers with a new work by former New York City Ballet dancer Antonia Franceschi and a NYTB Premiere by Martha Clarke. Franceschi’s new piece is inspired by the history of Danspace Project at St. Mark's Church-in-the-Bowery and will be performed there in October, with original music by Claire Van Kampen. The pas de trois from The Garden of Villandry by Martha Clarke, who was heavily influenced by Antony Tudor, will be shown with Tudor's Fandango, Les Mains Gauches and the pas de deux from Romeo and Juliet at the 92Y Harkness Dance Festival in February 2017. New York Theatre Ballet’s 2016-17 Season includes: • October 6-8, 2016 – Danspace Project: Legends & Visionaries • October 7, 2016 – 70th Birthday Gala for founder and artistic director Diana Byer • October 29-30, 2016 - Kaatsbaan International Dance Center: Legends and Visionaries • February 24-25, 2017 – 92Y Harkness Dance Festival: Legends & Visionaries • March 1-4, 2017 – New York Live Arts: Legends & Visionaries • April 28-29, 2017 – Schimmel Center at Pace University: Legends & Visionaries New York Theatre Ballet 2016-2017 Season Danspace Project: Legends & Visionaries St. Mark’s Church-in-the-Bowery, 131 E. 10th Street, NYC Box Office: 866-811-4111, www.danspaceproject.org October 6-8, 2016 at 8pm The evenings will include the World Premiere of a new piece by Antonia Franceschi set to an original musical score by Claire van Kampen. The work is inspired by the history of Danspace Project at St. Mark's Church-in-the-Bowery: “I was very moved by the recent exhibit at the Church which was of tee shirts used as grave sites for the numerous children killed by guns in the past year,” said Antonia Franceschi. Also featured in the program is Jerome Robbins' Antique Epigraphs set to Debussy’s “6 Épigraphes Antiques,” staged by Kyra Nichols, and Song Before Spring choreographed by Zhong-Jing Fang (American Ballet Theatre, corps de ballet) and Steven Melendez (New York Theatre Ballet, principal dancer) to Philip Glass’ Piano Etudes played live by steel drum ensemble, NYU Steel. Jack Anderson recently wrote about Song Before Spring in London’s Dancing Times: “…This was not the gambol one might expect, but an emotional outburst that plunged young people into unruly and unpredictable passions…” and from Carla Escoda of the Huffington Post: “The evening closed with a tumultuous 48 minute account of Philip Glass’ etudes arranged for steel drums. The 12-member NYU Steel ensemble took no prisoners. neither did co-choreographers Steven Melendez, of New York Theatre Ballet and Zhong-Jing Fang of American Ballet Theatre.” 70th Birthday Gala for Founder and Artistic Director, Diana Byer Danspace Project October 7, 2016 at 6:30pm The evening will include Judgment of Paris by Antony Tudor and new works created especially for the event by Alexandra Damiani, former Artistic Director of Cedar Lake; David Parker & The Bang Group Marco Pelle with a new solo; Antonia Franceschi with a new solo for Romany Pajdak from London’s Royal Ballet; and Gemma Bond, followed by dancing with DJ Imogene Strauss.

The internationally acclaimed Pilobolus Dance Theater returns to NYU Skirball Center for the Performing Arts, November 16 – December 4th, 2016, with two exhilarating programs mixing dance, physical theater, short film, and Pilobolus’s surrealistic and magical physical language. The two unique programs will feature nine works, including the New York premieres of Thresh/Hold and Wednesday Morning, 11:45, as well as revivals of Pilobolus classics Day 2 and Gnomen, and collaborations with Penn and Teller ([esc]) and alt-band OK Go (All is Not Lost). Pilobolus is an internationally acclaimed collective, renowned for its unique, diverse collaborations that ignore preconceived barriers between creative disciplines. The company is committed to constantly making things, always creating collaboratively, and always exploring ways of using the human body as a graphic and expressive medium. Pilobolus was founded in 1971 by a group of Dartmouth College students with no training in dance and no interest in playing by the rules. They employed an inventive naïveté that the contemporary “Pilobolus 2.0” energetically applies to the diversity of opportunities in today’s world. The company puts its intense creative energy into action in the communities where it performs, teaching groups of people of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities new ways of thinking independently, forming genuine human connection, working collaboratively, and finding beauty in unexpected places. Pilobolus has created and toured over 120 pieces of repertory to more than 65 countries, and currently performs its work for over 300,000 people across the U.S. and around the world each year. Pilobolus recently performed with Britney Spears the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards, and on “Penn and Teller: Fool Us” on the CW Network. They have been seen the world on the “79th Annual Academy Awards Broadcast, “ and on “60 Minutes,” “Sesame Street,” “Oprah,” “Ellen” and “Late Night with Conan O' Brien.” Pilobolus has been recognized with many prestigious honors, including a Scripps Award in 2000, a Dance Magazine Award in 2010, a TED Fellowship, a 2010 Grammy® Award Nomination, and several Cannes Lion Awards at the International Festival of Creativity. In 2015, Pilobolus was named one of Dance Heritage Coalition’s “Irreplaceable Dance Treasures.” A Tickets range from $55 - $85 (A 20% discount is available when purchasing two or more performances). Tickets may be purchased online at www.nyuskirball.org or in person at the NYU Skirball Center Box Office: Tuesday-Saturday, 12:00–6:00 P.M. NYU Skirball Center for the Performing Arts is located at 566 LaGuardia Place at Washington Square, New York, New York 10012. *Note: Evening Performances Include Nudity PROGRAM A On The Nature of Things (2014), performed by three dancers balanced on a two-foot wide column rising above the stage, explores the power of iconic bodies as storytellers. All Is Not Lost (2011) is the live companion to Pilobolus's video collaboration with the Grammy-winning rock band OK Go. Thresh|Hold (2015), a New York premiere created in collaboration with the Olivier Award-winning dance and theater choreographer Javier De Frutos (Cabaret), is a physically daring quintet that takes us through the labyrinthine mind of a young woman as she confronts lost love. [esc] (2013): Penn & Teller, the supreme masters of trickery, team with Pilobolus to create the ultimate piece of gripping, do-not-try-this-at-home choreography, with some help from TSA agents, lots of duct tape, duffel bags and stripper poles. Houdini would be impressed! Rushes (2007) Founding Artistic Director Robby Barnett and world-renowned Israeli dance-theater makers Inbal Pinto and Avshalom Pollak discover hybrid terrain in a remarkable exploration of the range and intensity of deep collaboration. PROGRAM B Gnomen (1997) A quartet for men, Gnomen's lyrical exploration of relationships emerges from an unusually inventive physical vocabulary. Wednesday Morning, 11:45 (2015): This New York premiere, with an original score by Alex Dezen of the Damnwells, uses both shadow and real characters to tell a shaggy dog story about a ne'er-do-well and a bird. The Inconsistent Pedaler (2014): A surrealist fable, with an original story by acclaimed Israeli author Etgar Keret and filmmaker Shira Geffen, is the story of a young girl who rides a bicycle that has the power to speed up and slow down time. Day Two (1981): One of Pilobolus’ classic works, Day Two’s tribal atmosphere enacts the second day of the creation of the world, from its earliest forms of life to the moment at which creatures of the earth take flight into the air, set to a soundtrack from Brian Eno and Talking Heads.

This production marks the first full-length work by her socially progressive company KineticArchitecture Dance Theatre. Developed during a 2016 residency at Dixon Place, Wonder/Through the Looking Glass Houses skewers the tales of Lewis Carroll and creates a world of reflection and taboo transformation recreating the characters we are familiar with who are never quite in the right place at the right time. As the White Rabbit with a Marilyn Monroe twist, Ms. Davidson and her fierce, sexy company turn the world of a child’s dream upside down. Tickets are $19 in advance, $22 at the door, and $15 for seniors and students. Tickets can be purchased by visiting www.dixonplace.org or by calling 866-811-4111.

Triskelion Arts Presents... E/D & Mei Yamanaka Works December 1 - 2, 2016 at 8pm Triskelion Arts’ Muriel Schulman Theater 106 Calyer Street, Brooklyn, NY 11222 – Enter on Banker Street Tickets: $16 in advance / $20 at the door Purchase at: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/triskelion-arts-presents-ed-and-mei-yamanaka-works-tickets-26548394964 More Info: www.triskelionarts.org Inspired by images of floating buoys, pop-diva feminism, and the notion of a “strong woman,” E/D’s latest work, "Bounce Bounce", unpacks the assumption that physical resiliency and emotional buoyancy are inextricably linked. In both formal dance training and femininity, bodily perfection and control are the dominant tropes. As such, physical performance typically becomes bound up with pleasure in, and identification with, an able, flexible, legible body—a body that performs “strong woman.” Such bodies are schooled to enact resiliency, but what happens when they can’t or won’t bounce back? Using sound, light and imaginative affect as material, E/D inhabits composer Jascha Narveson’s arresting soundscapes with lighting design by Andy Dickerson. Mei Yamanaka Works returns with a new work that underscores the choreographer’s penchant for nonlinear but studiously articulate storytelling. Marked by attention to the nuances of the body in motion and in pause, Mei’s dances also emphasize careful pacing, surprising use of space, and striking sense of play. The quizzical and earnest narratives she suggests are informed by daily life as much as by major events, and are ultimately deeply felt gifts that ignite audiences' imaginations.

Church bells, Wallingford Riegger’s dramatic music, and the sounds of Klezmer accompany the dance. For program information, call 818-353-5734.

Colorado Conservatory of Dance presents A Sensory-Friendly Nutcracker with international guest stars Adiarys Almeida and Joseph Gatti People with sensory, social and learning disabilities can fully participate in a cherished holiday tradition with their families. Denver - December 16 at 6:30pm, Colorado Conservatory of Dance (CCD), formerly the School of Ballet Nouveau Colorado, presents a special version of the traditional, family-friendly holiday favorite, The Nutcracker, for people with sensory needs. Colorado Conservatory of Dance is in its sixth year of offering Ballet Expressions – a program which uses dance to build critical developmental skills and physical strength and flexibility for children with special needs ranging from Cerebral Palsy to Down Syndrome. Building on their expertise with this core program, CCD has developed a theatre experience for people with special needs. CCD’s production of The Nutcracker boasts gorgeous sets and costumes, stunning choreography, and professional guest artists from around the world. For this rare opportunity, however, CCD will alter the normal house rules, fostering the opportunity for families with a special needs family member to feel welcomed in a theatre setting. The performance will feel and look the same as our performances which are open to the general public, but will allow for reactions that would normally be seen as distracting in a typical theatre experience. • Sound levels will be adjusted to a moderate, consistent level to avoid unpredictable loud sounds. • House lights will be left up to avoid total darkness. • Guests of Honor will be encouraged to bring manipulatives into the theatre. • Guests of Honor may react to the story on the stage in the way that feels right to them. They may stand up, walk around, take breaks, etc. as needed. • Seating will be limited to no more than half the house (300 seats) to ensure each audience member has adequate room.

The Urban Dictionary describes “idiotsyncracy” as “any method or procedure based in ritual or dogma that continues by force of momentum beyond the limits of common sense.” That’s certainly what’s in store when Igor and Moreno take the stage. Beginning by singing a Sardinian folk song, they proceed to bounce —literally— for the duration of the piece. Igor Urzelai and Moreno Solinas say that when they set out to create Idiot-Syncrasy they wanted to “change the world.” Recognizing that this would likely not be possible through a performance, they started jumping, singing, and testing different things that require perseverance, while exploring the immediacy of action as a vehicle for meaning, ideas, and desires. Direct from the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the two London-based dancers take audiences on a unique journey of self-discovery, exploring both togetherness and solitude. “Idiot-Syncrasy feels very human. More than that: humane…I left feeling an expanded person.” (LondonDance)

Sleeptalk is a collaborative, experimental dance work about sleep talking and our relationship to the unconscious. Developed around actual recordings of sleep talking, it explores the revealing, disturbing, and even humorous things that can surface, translating them through an appropriately dreamlike mix of media. Conceived by Ashley Fargnoli in collaboration with the dancers, a videographer, composer, and set designer, Sleeptalk is inspired by Fargnoli’s own sleep talking, which began as a reaction to the vicarious trauma she encountered working as a trauma therapist. As the performance unfolds, it moves from the personal to Jung’s collective unconscious. The audience will discover threads that link the dancer’s stories and the mysterious power of the unconscious that connect us all. This project is partially supported by an Individual Artist Program Grant from the City of Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs & Special Events, as well as a grant from the Illinois Arts Council, a state agency through federal funds provided by the National Endowment for the Arts.

Some questions are impossible to answer and some experiences too personal to express. Crystal Pite, the choreographer who brought The Tempest Replica to Ann Arbor four seasons ago, is back with her 2015 work for Kidd Pivot and Electric Company Theatre: Betroffenheit, which means a sort of shock, speechlessness, and bewilderment. This searing work has its roots in a deeply personal tragedy, the deaths of writer Jonathon Young’s teenage daughter and two cousins in a fire. With unflinching honesty, it achieves broad resonance as it touches on themes of loss, trauma, addiction, and recovery through a boundary-stretching hybrid of theater and dance. “A stunning testament to what can happen when life turns into art.” (The Globe and Mail)

Farrell Dyde Dance Theatre & Novodada present Mountains Are Mountains, Three New Works by Farrell Dyde Friday February 3 & Saturday February 4 2017 at 8 PM at The Match Houston, Texas Mountains Are Mountains, Three New Works by Farrell Dyde, is part of a larger, ongoing research and development project entitled Strategies, Visions, and Excavations --- strategies for making new dances, visions that come from dreams and other sources outside day to day reality and excavations of past memories. Farrell Dyde in this performance is sharing with the audience the results of his last two years work alone in the studio to evolve new movement vocabularies and ways of shaping those dance lexicons into new works that seem to have a necessity for being as well as providing some level of entertainment for the viewer. They represent a kind of dialogue or wrestling to resolve the conflict between purely abstract dance and dance that has some form of narrative and character driven “plot.” And between something that is highly structured and complete improvisation – between freedom and security. Dyde likes to keep the “meaning” of the dance somewhat mysterious so descriptions are not necessarily given to tell what the piece is “about” but rather to serve as an enticement to get people interested enough to come and experience them in person for themselves. The three new works on the program are: 1. Koan Blue with an early minimalist score by Michael Nyman is a kind of dance riddle with a gentle humor that also has roots in the kind of pure dance that formed early classic forms in its technical simplicity and use of space. 2. New York Nocturne set to music by Gavin Bryars is a cubistic Hamlet-like soliloquy in dance that occurs in an unreal dreamscape where anything can happen. (with a more expressionistic, surrealistic style that abstractly depicts a man coming to terms with deep grief, remorse and regret.) 3. The Last Boy concerns a boy growing up & coming of age possibly in the 1950s, 60s, & 70s as seen through the lens of a man in his late 60s. The work springs forth from a score by the late Harry Nilsson (The Beatles “favorite singer” and music that Dyde listened to obsessively while at college in 1969 in Boulder, Colorado) whose fragile, addictive personality and untimely death also impacts the nature of the piece. Farrell Dyde is an American choreographer, dancer and actor who has created over 100 original modern and post modern movement theater works of varying dimension and approach and that cover a broad spectrum of both narrative and non-narrative for his own company and many other companies and institutions. An original member of the CAM(Contemporary Arts Museum) choreographers in Houston, he created two world premiere ballets for Houston Ballet (1983 & 1985). “Farrell Dyde is a witty, articulate dancer/choreographer whose inventiveness and clarity of thought remind me of Merce Cunningham….Dyde is a perfect exemplar of modern dance, of disciplined investigation into new ways of making dance.” -- Nancy Kauffman, Austin American Statesman www.farrelldyde.org
