Our goal is to bring together improvisation-based performance artists, to cross-pollinate communities, and to highlight the varied possibilities and styles of improvisation. This festival presents artists who chase the surprises and invitations that come along with improvising for an audience and who approach performance as an experiment rather than a pre-determined idea. This is an opportunity for viewer and performer to raise questions, eliminate the tight grip of expectation, and replace it with freedom, risk, and communication. This year's festival will feature three weeks of performances including works by The Lovelies, Site Project, Hannah Wendel & Artists, Sarah Chien, Nicole Wolcott & Guests, and azumi O E + Sean Ali + Carlo Costa. Never Before Never Again will also offer a variety of workshops hosted by our festival artists. The workshops are designed to expand our investigation and understanding of improvisational forms. Workshops are open to ALL movers, shakers, and magic makers. All workshops will take place in Triskelion Arts' Muriel Schulman Theater.

Life of Pi is the retelling of Yann Martel's best selling novel of the same name through the south Indian classical dance form of Bharatanatyam. As in the book, the dance concert follows the story of Pi, a 16 year old Indian boy who finds himself alone in a boat with an adult Bengal Tiger for 227 days after a shipwreck in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. Pi's journey forms most of the story, making us rethink the place of faith in the modern world. Adaptation of the Yann Martel’s book through choreography was created by Ganesh Vasudeva, a dancer and choreographer from San Francisco. The concert also features an original music composition by Snigdha Venkataramani. Dancers are Aishwarya Venkat, Ganesh Vasudeva, Nitya Narasimhan, Roopa Suresh, and Shreya Iyer.

Always, so many things happen at the same time in this world. The happiest and worst things are happening at the same time. Yamanaka wants to believe that there is a totally different world existing beyond the world we are in right now and explores the relationship between two people experiencing different distances at different times with this new work. Through bounding movements and a dreamlike soundscape, the performers embody different facets of a shared relationship with earnest strength. Sometimes, the relationship is like a mother and child, sometimes like best friends, sometimes like lovers, and sometimes simply two individuals. As they trace these ever-shifting boundaries, the widening divide between extreme closeness and extreme distance is revealed. Inspired by OK Cupid advertisements commonly found in NYC subways, Yamanaka takes interest in the color and shape of these ads intended to encourage people to join and use the online dating site… the design and aesthetic is the jumping off point for generating memorable images. Inside a colorful space of unexpected humor and bold colors, movements build and take shape to create, decipher, and punctuate the ever-changing relationships at play.

Ballet des Amériques Announces Westchester Wednesday Dance - A New Performance Series at the Tarrytown Music Hall French-American choreographer Carole Alexis and her Ballet des Amériques dance company bring a rich and sprawling repertoire to the Tarrytown Music Hall in a new series called Westchester Wednesday Dance. These weekday evenings of dance offer audiences a break in the workday routine and a chance to witness the original work of the Music Hall’s company in residence. As a student of Maurice Béjart, Alexis’ choreography is rooted in classical ballet training and tradition while drawing on influences as disparate as children’s games, island rituals, natural phenomena, and modern urban life. Her dances entice and charm the viewer with elements of humor, psychological insight and surprise. Her company’s extensive and eclectic repertoire bears her distinctive signature and vision, reinvigorating “ballet” for new audiences and dance connoisseurs alike. Performances are scheduled for October 10, 2018, 7PM; February 20, 2019, 7PM; April 24, 2019, 7PM; June 26, 2019, 7PM. Tickets for all four performances of the season are available at: https://tickets.tarrytownmusichall.org/eventperformances.asp?evt=2164 For the first performance of the series, Ballet des Amériques will present evolved versions of Lentil Soup, Macouba and Nos ici et d’ailleurs. Westchester Wednesday Dance is made possible in part by ArtsWestchester with support from the Westchester County Government. Established in 2011 under the directorship of French-American choreographer Carole Alexis, Ballet des Amériques, as its name implies, inserts itself into the French cultural heritage of the Americas. Composed of classically trained dancers of diverse backgrounds, the young company has already danced the choreography of Carole Alexis in over 60 public performances beginning with its debut at the Festival de Fort-de-France in Martinique in 2011. As the resident dance company of the Tarrytown Music Hall, Ballet des Amériques is building on the success of its Evenings of Dance series to develop a regional dance audience in Westchester and neighboring counties. With its local roots and international orientation, the company is poised to grow its audiences beyond dance connoisseurs to reach those who have never been exposed to this art and especially young people, in conscious fulfillment of the educational function of dance in the spirit of Maurice Béjart.

This sunny ballet will enchant the whole family with its lively story set in a tiny European village a century or so ago. Spunky Swanilda loves Franz, but he falls for a beautiful mechanical doll made by the reclusive toymaker Dr. Coppélius. When Coppélius captures Franz, Swanilda poses as the doll to free Franz from the toy workshop where he is held captive. Spirited villagers dance. An experiment explodes. Toys whirl out of control. The entire village turns out for a wedding.
