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. Named one of Dance Magazine’s “25 to Watch,” his collaboration with Spike Jonze and Yo-Yo Ma performing The Swan went viral in 2011. 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. Stuart strives to develop a new language for every piece in collaboration with artists from different creative disciplines and navigates the tension between dance and theater.

The Circuit is an improvised, durational movement piece conceptualised by artist Moi Tran, alongside a live musician and an ensemble of East Asian dancers, whose extensive working credits include collaborations with Jan Fabre, Florence Peake, Akram Khan, Pablo Bronstein or Hofesh Shechter. The Circuitous track represents continuum and journey, whilst the action of walking speaks of commonplace, everyday rituals and behaviours that tend to be overlooked. Central to the piece is the question: what defines an East Asian woman in a contemporary context, noting the Asian diaspora has provoked new dialogues pertaining to culture and identity across the globe? The Circuit can be seen metaphorically as the beginning of a journey, a prologue - charting the territories through which a possible future dialogue on the identity of the East-Asian woman might move, outlining possible boundaries, and proposing routes through the modern flux of shifting and sometimes violently abrading identities, acknowledging both the continuing power of historical narratives and the ultimate impossibility of final destination and closure, stripping away to reach a state in which identity can be formed anew. Open and intimate, The Circuit manifests a viewing experience of physical and psychological intensity. It encourages the dissolution of borders and evokes an immersive union of artists and viewers - from which the latter can engage, or disengage and reengage, at any point.

We’ll use the notion of deconstructing ourselves to navigate class. What happens when we take something apart to better understand how it works? We expose our habits, open wounds, old concepts of thought, celebrations and anxieties. We’ll start by dropping into ourselves through a mindfulness practice in effort to gain an understanding of where we currently reside. Our aim will not be to demolish, but carefully dissect, our thoughts and understandings of ourselves in relation to all the other things around us. What is superficial and broad to begin, will become specific, tiny pieces to examine as an exploded collage. We’ll gaze, try not to judge it, explode it a little more, compartmentalize and reassemble it all with new architecture. To that end, we’ll improvise and learn some more tightly choreographed phrase work throughout the duration of class. Well dig in further to reorganize and re-contextualize our bodies and movement, with full understanding of our parts - each tiny piece. - The Deep Dance Series is a rotating master class series hosted by The Dance Complex that seeks to provide rigorous movement experiences for the intermediate to advanced level dancer pursuing a professional level training in modern and contemporary dance.

Katie can accept students from all performance art backgrounds and professional levels. Her only concern is that anyone who studies in her workshop have a deep interest in the work and is willing to experiment and take risks with the material she offers. WHAT YOU LEARN? Improvisational performance breaks the framework of preset choreography and challenges the artist to be the creator/composer/choreographer and the performer at the same time; to be the doer and the observer simultaneously. It is about learning ‘The Eye': of the space, of the watcher and essentially the eye of work being created. The workshop is oriented towards building skills of performance presence, timing, tracking and conviction of choice/action. It focuses on developing skills to interpret dynamic space and creating one’s own performance frame. While Katie aims to explore novel and rigorous approaches to body work. The main focus lies in reaching a state of surprising oneself. The workshop will be structured into body work, activity-based sessions, performances and a jam. Her warm-up and exercises emphasis how the eyes and the ears work in coordination with movement, sound and exposure to gathered crowds altering our perception of time, space, feelings and emotions. Improvisation sessions revolve around the terms pause, flow, exit, choice and presence with discussions articulating play, memory and intuition. Katie guides the dancers and performers through physical exercises that highlight how the eyes and ears affect movement choices and developmental brain studies about “how we learned to walk”. She extends the workshop toward improvisation sessions by setting a fictional front in the studio space and then declaring this as a platform to choose pause, flow or exit. This platform highlights how the limit of these three choices can already provide the frame for a composition to take place, and that misunderstanding, coincidence, live time, interactivity, messiness, emotions, intuition and inspiration are basic materials in a creative process. These raw materials are integrated with the combined fact that everyone in the workshop group can make a choice. WORKSHOP SETTING: Choice is introduced to the workshop group as a compositional reality but also as a means for individuals to elect to participate in the performative or as a viewer and yet remain involved in the process. The aim is to gather the workshop group to recognize that in a creative composition process, time is passing at different perceived speeds and that space is shifting in several dimensions at once. This awareness creates a presence in the space and a compositional alertness. Her aim is to provide a situation where artists can practice together and grow in confidence toward public performances with an objective to clarify that improvisation not the antitheses of choreography or composition but rather the way choreography and composition can be executed. The improvisation sessions are given a delegated time frame with an option for the workshop group to shift, drop or lift the space at will. This shifting, dropping and lifting of the performance space places each individual in a position where they need to be to be fully awake or they will recognisably loose the thread of the creative compositional activity in play. HOW KATIE TEACHS? Katie has been teaching since she began to perform professionally in the mid 70’s. She is dedicated to how process and research play a major role in how one can continue to be artistic in how they approach their life and their work. Over the past 10 years her workshops have been titled “Improvisation” in order to emphasis her views on theater as a live art form reflective of how she executes her own professional performances. Her research is placed in practice with lectures containing her recent interest in brain studies and film. She integrates her current research making each workshop completely unique. She draws from her experiences in live performances, music collaborations, as a director and choreographer. Her enthusiasm for a young artists to be able to continue their practice, in a very different atmosphere than when she began her work, is evident in how she has continued to up grade her life style with new technologies, continued to do research in the sciences, the performance arts and music. She has created several projects with an aim to support a young artists rather than her own career. She continues to take risks with her own career in the support of young artists giving them the possibility to experiment within their own practice. She promotes to her students that the mental connection to the practice of improvisation can be accessed weather they are doing set or open framed performance pieces and that the definitions of what improvisation within art practices mean today need to be reflective to advances in brain-studies and technology. In the way she communicates with students, one is aware of how she understands that the professional field of the arts has altered drastically in comparison to when she began her practice in the mid 70’s. As part of her teaching, she encourages young artists to devise strategies that allow for them to sustain the production of their work with creativity and research involved and yet survive. RESEARCH MATERIAL: Katie has had the possibility to create material for her workshops out of a wide range of practice in the performance arts. She has never formulated her teaching material into a frozen body of knowledge. She does not believe that the accumulation of knowledge is how one becomes a teacher. She believes that It is out of her practice and the practice she witnesses with a student that all knowledge becomes clarified in the lessons she leading. http://katieduck.com/about-katie-duck/text/research-material/ QUOTES KATIE DUCK: “The combination of moving, seeing, hearing, feeling and deliberately volunteering to expose myself in front of an audience alters my perception of time, space and emotions. What I do for a living is an induced neuron madness” “I am not interested in the moment even though it does feel good. I am interested in movement and the fact that time is passing. It is a kind of hippie hype to encourage someone to be in the moment.” “A fully awake body is rarely pedestrian. The body awake needs to be discovered and demands a discipline beyond everyday tasks. And yet when I see movement that does not respect the beauty of the body as pedestrian I become uncomfortable. How the body works and how I see a body is not so different an activity in how I feel. To not respect the body as an already perfect place of motion is like watching a dog trying to learn ballet.” OTHER LINKS: DR Sharon Smith essay about working with Katie Duck http://www.sharonsmith.org/5-its-not-what-you-do-its-the-way-that-you-do-it.php BIO KATIE DUCK: Katie Duck is a director/performer/teacher who has been working professionally since 1976. She has dedicated her life to her work as an on going process rather than settle into one specific methodology or frame. She is working in the context of the time she is living in day to day. Her work is the voice for how she feels about that. Katie Duck is a feminist with an edge to move things along rather than look behind. By the 1980's, Katie began to take a microscopic study for the role improvisation plays in her real time composition integrating music, movement, object and writing. Improvisation in a Katie Duck performance is not the antithesis of choreography or composition; it is how she makes her art work out of practice both in the studio setting and the newness of real time improvised performance. Her performances are about the experience of being there, you are participating in the event and thus, in a sense, the work”. Katie Duck’s practice is a reflection of what she believes art in the theatre can only be; live. She has developed a manifesto in how she conducts research, rehearsal processes, and workshops towards performances based on her background working with live musicians beginning in the mid 70's and her obsession to write and then voice text in a mix with her musical background. Over the past 15 years, she has integrated her curiosity for developmental brain studies as a part of how she teaches movement research and how she works with live public. Public, in her performances, are witnesses and the main provider for how the piece is perceived. Her performances are a practice of presence in a sound driven space with a flirtation to engage public so hopefully they remember what they have seen, heard and felt long after the live performance has died.

Bryn Cohn + Artists presents their first evening of repertory, The Art of Loss, a collection of notable works from 2012-2017 that expose the rebellion, hope and despair that root in otherness. Renowned for their ferocious physicality, theatrical worlds and intimate performances, BC + A navigates an unforgettable cultural, emotional and kinetic adventure. The evening will include the World Premiere of a brand new politically-inspired work, A Perfect Union, which addresses the current sociopolitical climate in our world through the lenses of race, gender, sexuality, terrorism, activism, hierarchical structures and humanitarian effort. In her first-ever musical composition, Cohn has designed a mash-up score sourced from inaugural and political speeches by Jimmy Carter, Barack Obama, and Donald Trump. "A Perfect Union is both a personal response to the effects of political agenda as well as a larger communal commentary on the apocalyptic conditions that plague our country," said artistic director Bryn Cohn. "Through integration of a text-based score, America takes on a humanized presence within the work with whom the performer maintains a direct and intimate relationship. The score provides a rhythmic platform for movement generation and reinforces the conversational engine that is intrinsic to the thematic objectives. Layering of dialogue serves to reinforce the perpetual bombardment of information and negativity that saturate American existence. Theatrical undercurrents are illuminated through militant and sacrificial imagery in the body as well as symbolic motifs that parallel and counterpoint the spoken word." The program also includes four audience favorites: HOME, Skin, 4AM and If You Sink. HOME (2016) is a dance - theater work inspired by familial dynamics and the pursuit of physical, emotional and spiritual manifestations of connection. The work embodies a non-linear narrative that provides a lens into the varied encounters that occur within a group of individuals inhabiting, fighting for and existing in harmony within designated spaces. Music: Original Composition by Kevin Keller The newest piece in the company's repertory, 4AM (2017) illuminates the uncertainty, spirituality and sensuality that emanate from relinquishing inhibition and surrendering to sensation. Contextualized through examinations of rave and trance culture, kinetic and explosive choreography promotes ways of kinesthetically and psychologically losing oneself within environments, others and movement vocabularies. Music by Loscil, The Sight Below & Chaos, Move D, Positive Centre, Planetary Assault Systems, Julianna Barwick Skin (2015) explores how we physically and metaphorically "build" a person in a continuous cycle of creation and destruction in response to social castes, gender, race, sexuality and political systems. The cast enters dualistic states of being - God and man, sculptor and subject, dictator and citizen - exploring how each person or entity might be formed, and the freedom, rebellion and heroism that accompany this process. Music: Original Composition by Kevin Keller If You Sink (2012) examines archetypical models of hetero normative relationships and corresponding social constructions of power that exist. Movement languages encompassing rhythmic nuance punctuated by highly articulated gesture and classical idioms are seamlessly woven into the subtleties of Chopin's score. Music by Chopin Dancers: Chelsea Ainsworth, Nico Gonzales, Jessica Malat, Yuliya Romanskaya, Will Tomaskovic ABOUT BRYN COHN + ARTISTS Founded in 2011, Bryn Cohn + Artists is a New York-based contemporary dance company comprised of unique collaborative artists from diverse backgrounds.

CUNY Dance Initiative and John Jay College, in collaboration with Dušan Týnek Dance Theatre, present the World Premiere of Anna at the Gerald Lynch Theater at John Jay College, 524 W. 59th Street, NYC on February 16 & 17, 2018 at 7:30pm. Tickets are $30 ($20 for students and seniors) and are available at https://dusantynek.eventbrite.com. Anna is an evening-length contemporary dance-theater performance by choreographer Dušan Týnek inspired by Tolstoy’s classic Russian novel, Anna Karenina. An exploration of love and infidelity within the structures of stifling social mores, Anna side steps a conventional re-telling of the novel, focusing instead on the essence of its characters and their situations. “Structurally, dealing with such a well¬-known work of literature gives me freedom to leave out parts of the story without losing the general narrative,” said Dušan Týnek. “Each segment will oscillate between abstraction and literal representation as a way of exploring and being in conversation with the plot, characters, moods, and psychological themes that appear in the novel. Anna will not only investigate the romantic image of Anna Karenina but also other female archetypes as victims of gender inequality and social pressures. I want the experience to be less like seeing a play or a ballet of one of the great novels of western civilization, but of falling asleep with the book on your chest and dreaming of it.” Anna features an original composition by frequent collaborator Aleksandra Vrebalov, known for her recent commission by the Kronos Quartet, and lighting design by Roderick Murray. The premiere of Anna is the culmination of the company’s two-week residency via the CUNY Dance Initiative at John Jay College’s Gerald Lynch Theater. “Intelligent and inventive dancemaking” – Dance Magazine "The work is marvelous ... Mr. Týnek is an undoubted talent, a choreographer who seems fascinated by movement itself and the strange, subtle ways in which it communicates strange, subtle things." – The New York Times Dušan Týnek is known internationally for his striking blend of theatricality, musicality, and humanism in formally structured modern dance and has been called “an undoubted talent” by The New York Times. Since founding his own company Dušan Týnek Dance Theatre in 2003, Týnek has created over 25 major dances, choreographed an opera, and held nine critically- acclaimed seasons in major dance venues in NYC (e.g. New York Live Arts, BAM Fisher, The Joyce Theater). Two NYC seasons have been named as the highlights of the year by The New York Times and the Huffington Post. In addition to stage work, he has created a large number of site-specific works at museums (The Met), Skyspaces by James Turrell (The Ringling Museum, FL; Rice University, TX) and flooded quarries on Cape Ann, MA. Týnek has received commissioning grants from the NEA and from the Harkness, Greenwall, and O’Donnell-Green Music and Dance Foundations. He has taught and/or set work on students at schools across the U.S. and abroad. He is the recipient of the prestigious Bogliasco Fellowship, Djerassi Artist Residency, The Hermitage Fellowship, the CUNY Dance Initiative residency and a winner of the Choreographic Fellowship at the University of Kansas. The company has received ongoing support from the Ford Foundation, NYCDCA, Czech Center NY, Trust for Mutual Understanding, and Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation among others. www.dusantynek.org Aleksandra Vrebalov (composer) has written works ranging from concert music, to opera, dance (Rambert Dance UK, Dušan Týnek Dance Theatre, Take Dance, Scottish National Ballet, Augsburg Theater), to sound installations in collaboration with architect Ronit Eisenbach. Her most recent works have been commissioned by Carnegie Hall for Kronos Quartet, Belgrade Philharmonic, and Limon Dance Company. Vrebalov, who has been a fellow of MacDowell Colony, Rockefeller Bellagio Center, Djerassi, The Hermitage, and Tanglewood, is the recipient of The Harvard Fromm Commission, The American Academy of Arts and Letters Charles Ives Fellowship, and two Golden Badges from her homeland: one for her opera Mileva, and the other for a lifelong contribution to Serbian culture. Vrebalov's works have been recorded for Nonesuch, Cantaloupe, Innova, Centaur Records, and VMM. Her two works for Kronos Quartet, Beyond Zero: 1914 – 1918 and The Sea Ranch Songs, are available as DVDs with films by Bill Morrison and Andrew Lyndon. Apart from her new opera, Abraham in Flames, Vrebalov's work this season centers on Asian music with two new pieces: one with shakuhachi, commissioned by Kyo-Shin-An Arts, premiered by New York's shakuhachi Grand Master, James Nyoraku Schlefer; and the other with ancient Chinese instruments for The Forbidden City Orchestra in Beijing. Her children's ballet, The Widow's Broom (2004), based on Chris Van Allsburg's story, was done again this season at the Festival Ballet Providence as the company's Halloween favorite. Vrebalov lives in New York City. www.aleksandravrebalov.com Dušan Týnek Dance Theatre's residency at the John Jay College is part of the CUNY Dance Initiative (CDI), a residency program that opens the doors of CUNY campuses to professional choreographers and dance companies.

Sasso & Company will present Deeply Rooted this February at the Dance Complex, Julie Ince Thompson Theatre! Deeply Rooted will showcase a brand new world premiere piece exploring the psychological theory of attachment as well as fan favorite company repertory. As part of the company’s mission to create a greater sense of connectivity in the Boston dance community, Sasso & Company is excited to be presenting the work of local artists and companies. Deeply Rooted explores the nature of attachment and our visceral reactions to such relationships. In psychology, attachment theory attempts to describe the dynamics of long-term and short-term interpersonal relationships between humans. Moreover, the feeling of security, anxiety, and/or apathy has a direct relationship to how our bodies react to one another. Deeply Rooted deconstructs attachment through movement, gesture, and soulful dance expression.

A "Gallery Workout" heightens the perception of visual art with movement and sound that leads to a greater understanding of the art itself. Visual artist Ellyn Weiss’s show "Form and Void" includes a large abstract mural (12 feet long) called "Night Comes,"prints on Japanese paper and pieces made of tar. The forms began with Ellyn’s consideration of extremophiles, organisms that live in the most hostile environments on earth - extreme heat and cold, toxic materials, radioactivity, without oxygen, etc. As we do irreversible damage to the systems that humans need to survive, these are the organisms that may inherit the earth. Welcome to an exciting exploration of visual art interpreted by the moving body in an overarching connection to environment. Also on the program, Jane Franklin Dance combines with Forty+, to reminisce and laugh along with the intergenerational Shorthanded, a performance piece that revisits technology pushed away over time: cassette tape, VHS, paper dolls, IBM 3033, and other blips on the relentless march of cultural change.

Hair and other stories In 2001, White Bird introduced Urban Bush Women with Jawole Willa Jo Zollar’s humorous and poignant Hair Stories. Hair and Other Stories is a brand new multidisciplinary work that addresses matters of race, gender, identity and economic inequality through the lens of hair, primarily that of African American women. Harking back to the original Hair Stories, this exciting work with a new director is certain to be just as memorable.

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 1999, In Spite of Wishing and Wanting caused a huge international stir. For the first time, Wim Vandekeybus created a performance not about the chemistry between men and women, but a primal desire in a world of men alone – fierce, wild, naïve, and playful. The performance derives its power from the organic symbiosis between dance, theatre, and film. Captivating dance sequences underpinned by the sensual soundtrack by David Byrne, founding member of Talking Heads, dissolve into monologues on fear, the desire for security, and the dreadful magic of sleep. Accompanying the performance is the short film entitled "The Last Words," made by Vandekeybus himself and based on two stories by Julio Cortázar. Wim Vandekeybus’ first show, "What the Body Does Not Remember," was an international success, earning him a Bessie Award (New York Dance and Performance Award) for its innovation. Throughout the creation of his company Ultima Vez, 30 years of new works, and a whole series of films and videos, Wim Vandekeybus is still searching for novelty and innovation. In all these very different productions, Ultima Vez nevertheless remains true to its own movement idiom – tension, conflict, body versus mind, risks, and impulses. Physicality, passion, intuition, instinct: These are essential elements that will always be part of Vandekeybus’ work, giving a completely different appearance in each instance.

Transitional State attempts to describe, through a nonlinear narrative, characters overwhelmed by life transitions leading to a state of emotional unraveling, expressed through the movement and laughter. Through mercurial weight shifts we will explore how these sudden shifts, optimistically force us to adapt. Phases, a duet for longtime friends and dancers Karen Klein and Kelley Donovan, depicts movement and performance at different times in one’s life. The Body Becomes the Messengerattempts to show how our body thrives when all is integrated and in balance. When we try to have our mind, heart and soul work without addressing our body’s needs and concerns, we battle against ourselves. Only in true union of all of parts of ourselves can we be at our strongest and best. teXtmoVes founded by Karen Klein, works in the interdisciplinary intersection between spoken word and movement, exploring their boundaries and connections. It is the goal of this collective to bring intergenerational performance works which integrate dance and poetry to diverse audiences. Don’t Break the Circle, a new production by teXtmoVes, choreographed to a poem by Klein about Yevgenia Lazerevna, a Russian woman soldier, a brigade leader captured by the Nazis in World War II and sent with her female troops to Ravensbruck. Her heroism allowed them to survive. Nearly forgotten by history, Lazerevna is remembered in this work performed by 6 dancers. textmovescollabora.wixsite.com/textmoves Kelley Donovan splits her time presenting work in both Boston and New York City and has performed work by Ann Carlson and Liz Lerman. She is on the faculty at UMass Boston and has been a guest artist and teacher at many colleges including Roger Williams University, Salem State College, Boston Center for the Arts and has had work commissioned by World Music/Crash Arts. In New York City she has shown work at Movement Research, The Cunningham Studio, Duo Theater, The Joyce SoHo, The Hatch, The Fresh Fruit Festival, Galapogos, Gibney Dance Center and the 92nd St. Y. Her work has received financial support from The Artist Foundation of Boston and the Massachusetts Cultural Council. Kelley studied choreography with Mark Morris and Bessie Schönberg.

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.
