The Department of Dance at Case Western Reserve University celebrates movement and innovation by leading off the 2018-19 season with Mosaics, a collection of new, revisited, and guest artist dance works on November 9, 10, and 15 - 17 at 8:00 pm and November 11 at 2:30 pm at Mather Dance Center on the CWRU campus. Showcasing the department’s successes with the use of new technologies, the program will feature the return of Gary Galbraith's visually stunning dance Imagined Odyssey as well as a new work marking another installment in his series of 'media rich' dance-works. Injecting high energy will be Caffeinated, the fast paced work by renowned choreographer Larry Keigwin contrasted by the grace of Nai-Ni Chen’s Bamboo Prayer. Caffeinated, choreographed by Larry Keigwin, is a zany and charming highly charged dance set to Philip Glass’s “Glasspiece # 3”. The work was commissioned by NYU’s dance department and was recently expanded by Jaclyn Walsh, Keigwin’s regisseur, for a cast of 13 CWRU dancers which includes graduate students and undergraduate dance majors. Returning to the Mather Dance Center stage is Bamboo Prayer, a dance for five women choreographed by Nai-Ni Chen that was commissioned by the Joyce Theater in New York where it premiered in 1998. Inspired by the beauty of bamboo, a plant abundant in Chen’s native Taiwan, the dance exudes strength, resiliency and grace embodied in women. Chen was in residency at CWRU for one week to set the dance in the Fall of 2017. Last year marked the first time a group other than Chen’s New York based company performed the work. Imagined Odyssey, created through a collaborative project with CWRU’s Interactive Commons and Gary Galbraith, artistic director of the Department of Dance, is receiving its encore performance due to its success and popularity with our patrons. The groundbreaking, narrative-based technology work utilizes live holographic imagery featuring Microsoft’s HoloLens, an augmented reality holographic headset. Members of the audience will wear HoloLens in order to watch the dancers and holograms move seamlessly on stage as the merging of choreography with holographic content and particles made entirely of light magically create the mysterious landscape of sets and props. These performances will again mark one of the largest numbers of people in the world to simultaneously experience a live holographic presentation using HoloLens. The unique collaboration draws upon the expertise of dancers, artists, illustrators, programmers, network engineers, and more. Galbraith’s new three-sectioned untitled work is another in his long line of media rich dance works. This new work set to haunting and intensely beautiful music finds Galbraith exploring responsive media with projection mapping in new ways to create colorful moving images projected onto dancers, the floor, and set elements. Ticket Information All performances take place at Mather Dance Center, 11201 Bellflower Road, on the Case Western Reserve University campus.

ONLYHUMAN is a dance theater piece by a French-born, NYC-based artist Christine Bonansea. Inspired by Friedrich Nietzsche’s aphoristic volume Human, All Too Human, the work investigates the stark contradiction between our race’s capacity for beauty against its most destructive tendencies. ONLYHUMAN also deals with the various perception of a body, from human to post-human. Developed in a close collaboration with a stellar group of international artists, the show is wrapped into a ultra-modern, Matrix-like, futuristic layer of striking multimedia visuals, featuring the lighting design by Solomon Weisband (who recently worked on a major operatic production with Robert Wilson), with visuals by acclaimed photographer Robert Flynt, video and multimedia by Yoann Trellu, and music by Nicole Carroll. The dance and features virtuosic, gravity-defying solo part performed by the Japanese dancer Mei Yamanaka; other performers include Alvaro Estado, Maya Orchin, Becca Loevy, Amelia Heintzelman, Ichi Go, Cameron Mckinney, Charles Gowin, Kristopher K.Q. Pourzal, and Malcolm Betts. OnlyHuman is presented as part of Danspace Project’s Community ACCESS.

This two-part work discusses how audiences deal with these emotions to find solace while taking action. Original music by Kevin Keller adds to a sense of urgency and the need for community, working in tandem with the choreography to immerse the audience in a fully formed world. Performers and audience connect via The Emotional Architecture of a Bridge, an original concept drawn and created by Teresa Fellion, that is uncovered in the piece via set elements and audience interaction with text. Furthering thoughts of togetherness, which has been an overarching theme in all past BodyStories pieces, “reeling -> healing” exposes the more vulnerable sides of ourselves through dance.

South Florida's leading contemporary dance ensemble, Dance NOW! Miami, entering its 19th year, is expanding its footprint with its "New Voices" initiative by commissioning a work from Jamaica-born and Miami-raised choreographer Christopher Rudd. The world premiere of his work, sponsored by Miami Salon Group and Citizens Interested in Arts, will be featured in the company's first major program of the season, on Saturday, December 1, at Miami Beach's Colony Theatre, with an encore presentation on Sunday, December 9, at the Alper JCC in Kendall. The program also includes a revival of Dance NOW Artistic Directors Diego Salterini and Hannah Baumgarten's "Random Patterns of Falling Leaves", Salterini's "Melody in Four Parts: Just Traveling", and the world premiere of Baumgarten's "Grace." "Chris is a perfect fit for Dance Now's Florida-rooted but international-in-scope approach to today's dance world," says Baumgarten. "We are excited about his work, which melds multicultural influences with his own signature style, created specifically for our company's dancers." Mr. Rudd's choreography draws on contemporary ballet, modern dance, and aerial approaches. He trained at the Thomas Armour Youth Ballet and is a graduate of Miami's own New World School of the Arts. He has gone on to perform with and choreographed for many leading groups, including Les Grands Ballets Canadiens de Montreal, the Elizabeth Streb company, and Cirque du Soleil, and is the director his New York-based ensemble, RudduR Dance. "Random Patterns of Falling Leaves" is Salterini and Baumgarten's critically acclaimed homage to autumn, its revival timed for the ending of fall with its early December dates. Salterini's "Melody in Four Parts: Just Traveling" is a metaphysical journey from birth to death and the beyond, created after the passing of his mother, with an original score by Ohio composer Jenny Bernard Merkowitz and text from Seattle-based poet Janée Baugher. The world premiere of "Grace," choreographed by Baumgarten, will tell the story of her Biblical namesake Hannah, bringing a Jewish and female perspective to the performance. Tickets for the Saturday, December 1 Colony Theatre evening are $35 general admission, and $15 students (at the box office in-person only). Regular price tickets can be purchased in advance online at www.dancenowmiami.org and in-person for all tickets at the theater box office, 1040 Lincoln Road, in Miami Beach.

We are excited to find this collaboration with Carole Alexis and Ballet des Amériques, whose quality, cultural knowledge and artistic vision brings world-class art to our family series and holiday season programming.” Carole Alexis, for her part, explains that her interest in creating a Nutcracker was to bring families and friends together around the essence of what the story represents, namely, the beautiful balance between Marie’s childhood playfulness and her coming of age in the midst of her own circle of family and friends – an objective that dovetails nicely the Emelin’s program. Under the directorship of French-American choreographer Carole Alexis, Ballet des Amériques, has been staging productions at the Emelin Theatre since 2012.

Voted both Outstanding Production in Classical Dance and Outstanding Youth Performance by Metro DC Dance Awards, Lees’ version of the holiday classic is a metropolitan area family favorite. There is something for everyone in this fun and engaging version of The Nutcracker—a huge cannon that fires at the mice, a beautiful growing Christmas tree, whirling flakes in a snowstorm, cute little Ginger Snaps peeking out of a huge Mother Ginger skirt, a lovely Sugar Plum dancing with her handsome Cavalier, and extraordinary costumed characters from the Kingdom of Sweets.

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.
