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.

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.

Over the past 19 years From the Horse’s Mouth has been presented in New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Honolulu, Minneapolis, Miami, Philadelphia, Boston, and Toronto, as well as Jacob’s Pillow and the American Dance Festival. To date over 1,000 dancers, from ages 13 to 94, have participated, including Mary Anthony, Brenda Bufalino, Roxane Butterfly, Jane Comfort, Grover Dale, Gemze de Lappe, Carmen de Lavallade, David Dorfman, Viola Farber, John Jaspers, Kwikstep & Rokafella, Carol Lawrence, Yvonne Rainer, Gus Solomons Jr and Martine van Hamel. “Heightened emotions and serendipitous dance moments mingle with belly laughs and bittersweet anecdotes.” —Los Angeles Times “Like dying and going to dancer’s heaven.” —The New York Times ABOUT RAJIKA PURI: Trained at an early age in Bharatanatyam, Rajika’s main guru was Sikkil Ramaswamy Pillai. Later, she studied Odissi with the late Guru Srinath Rauth and Guru Durga Charan Ranbir from the Guru Deba Prasad Das Gurukul, of which she is a senior member. After several years of performing dance internationally (and in India), including a command performance for the President of Mexico, she began a career as actor playing the “Narrator /Kali/voice of several puppets’ in a Lincoln Center Theater production directed by Julie Taymor (of‘Lion King on Broadway’ fame), with music by Academy Award winner, Elliot Goldenthal. Rajika soon started to incorporate both speaking and singing in her own danced works, and developed a form of Danced Storytelling in which she embellishes her dancing with songs and narrations in English. In 2005 she did her first solo show of what she calls “Sutradhari Natyam”, a form for which she is now best known. Another form associated with her comes form her love and knowledge of flamenco. Started in 1998 with singer-dancer La Conja, ‘Flamenco Natyam’ refers to her collaborations with flamenco music and dance: in 2001 with south Indian classical vocalist Aruna Sairam, flamenco guitarist David Serva and flamenco dancer Clara Mora; in 2005 a solo suite: Tauromagia, choreographed in Bharatanatyam and set to flamenco music. 2005 saw her first group production: Union/Severed [Asia Society, NY], followed by Conversations with Shiva (2007) and Tapasya [2009]. Her solo show, Devi-Malika, was presented off- Broadway [The Duke on 42ndStreet, 2008]. In 2013 she devised her first full-length danced story: Eleni Of Sparta on the life of ‘Helen of Troy’, in which she sings, in ancient Greek, lyrics from Homer & the 7thC BCE poet, Sappho (Chennai, Delhi, Malaysia tour). A degree from NYU in 1983 [under Dr Drid Williams], involved a social anthropological view of how meaning is made in movement, and led her to write and give lecture demonstrations on the intricacies of her art from a cross-cultural perspective. Her writings, including reviews, cover Indian, flamenco, modern dance – and theatre.

CONTEMPORARY BALLET CHOREOGRAPHER CHERYLYN LAVAGNINO TO PRESENT “GENDER SHIFTS” AT 92ND STREET Y HARKNESS DANCE CENTER’S “DIG DANCE: Moving Forward: Women Ballet Choreographers East and West” “Fridays at Noon” Dance Demo and Panel Discussion To Include Cherylyn Lavagnino Dance and Five Female Ballet Choreographers Cherylyn Lavagnino, Artistic Director of Cherylyn Lavagnino Dance, will present a new, combination choreographic work, “Gender Shifts,” at 92Y’s DIG DANCE Moving Forward: Women Ballet Choreographers East and West, on Friday, April 28 at 8pm, in the historic Buttenwieser Hall. Five female East/West choreographers will come together that evening to present a singular program of new dances and revivals. *Program below. Cherylyn Lavagnino will also present an excerpt of “Drive”, her 2016 male/female double duet, for the “Fridays at Noon” series, at the same location. A discussion on the unique place women ballet choreographers hold in the ballet, their future in the ballet, and a look at the recently formed Women Ballet Choreographers Institute at Djerassi will follow, hosted by author Wendy Oliver. Joining Cherylyn Lavagnino at “Fridays at Noon” are choreographers Gemma Bond, Lydia Johnson, Dalia Rawson and Kathryn Roszak. Cherylyn Lavagnino's choreographic mission is to create movement that engages an audience by aligning the rigor of ballet with the humanistic performance values of contemporary dance. Her choreography uses pointe work as a platform to delve into the range of human interaction and emotion. The unconventional use of ballet expresses complex and honest portrayals through the choreography and the dancers. Music is paramount to her creative process, and its influence pushes and prods the imagery. *Cherylyn Lavagnino Dance Program “Gender Shifts” at 92Y Dig Dance, April 28, 8pm: • Duet (2017). Originally a male/female duet about the physical and emotional boundaries in a relationship, Cherylyn Lavagnino was interested in translating this material to suit a male-to-male interaction. This new, recent exploration is set to Martin Bresnick’s, Strange Devotion. • Veiled (2016), a work for a female cast of seven, Veiled explores the idea of preserving physical and internal grace in the face of oppression. While Martin Bresnick’s, Josephine the Singer inspired the choreography, reading Lolita in Tehran, by Azar Nafisi, and The Art of Grace by Sarah L. Kaufman, provided the initial creative research. According to Cherylyn Lavagnino, “our daily process as dancers is centered around a quest for grace of movement and emotion.” Musical accompaniment will be played live by violinist Derek Ratzenboeck. 92Y “Fridays at Noon” – April 28 at Noon: • Drive (2016 Excerpt) a male/female double duet in which an angular, taut movement vocabulary explores the uncompromising aspects of ourselves that extend to our most personal relationships; the plaintive and dissonant original score composed by Scott Killian, will build on the dancers' unnerving sense of detachment. Ultimately, we recognize that the conflict will not be resolved, yet the isolation of this impasse is eerily harmonious. CHERYLYN LAVAGNINO DANCE AT 92Y “FRIDAYS AT NOON” AND “DIG DANCE: Moving Forward: Women Ballet Choreographers East and West” FRIDAY, APRIL 28 AT NOON AND 8PM 92Y – Buttenwieser Hall 1395 Lexington Avenue at 92nd Street New York, NY 10128 GENERAL 92Y INFORMATION: 212-415-5500 TICKETS: FRIDAYS AT NOON: From $10 http://www.92y.org/event/fan-women-ballet-choreographers DIG DANCE - From $15 https://www.92y.org/Event/Moving-Forward.aspx “As always in Lavagnino’s choreography, you get a sense of people on the go—rushing somewhere, charging ahead, finding partners or colleagues, then moving on. Designs materialize and vanish. This is a society in tumult, but full of hope—one in which structures crumble and are rebuilt in new ways.” – Arts Journal “The intimacy with which her works touch the musical compositions set to the dances is like a welcome shade in the midst of a roaring blaze, as the intensity with which the dancers evoke her visions.” –Broadway World “Drawn to the rigor of ballet and the humanism of modern dance” – Time Out ABOUT CHERYLYN LAVAGNINO Cherylyn Lavagnino Dance performed at Danspace Project’s DANCE: Access series for seven seasons, as well as at the Baryshnikov Arts Center, the Kaatsbaan International Dance Center, Dance Now/NYC Festival, The Joyce Theater’s Evening Stars series in Battery Park, Symphony Space’s Dance Sampler, the Field’s Uptown/Downtown workshop and performance series and three times at Inside/Out at Jacob’s Pillow.

Critically-Acclaimed ArtBark International Reprises Alma.Sama in Los Angeles and Santa Barbara April 29-30, 2017 Santa Barbara, CA, February 27th, 2017 The multigenerational performing arts collective ArtBark International, with seasoned dance artists hailing from California, New York and Slovenia, will reprise their dance theater work Alma.Sama at Arc Pasadena on April 29, 2017 at 7:30 pm and the Gail Towbes Center for Dance in Santa Barbara, CA on April 30, 2017 at 6:00 pm. Ticket prices are $5 kids, $10 adults and $100 angel patrons. For detailed ticket and venue information, please see http://www.artbark.org/tickets. Alma.Sama is a visual and sonic feast for audiences of all ages, with original music by Stephen Kelly, costumes by Misa Kelly, and projections by the company. The evening-length work premiered to sold-out audiences and was presented by Slovenia’s leading cultural center the Cankarjev Dom in Ljubljana in June 2015. Described as “sophisticated dance poetics with expressive depth and superior movement vocabulary,” and “subtle, intellectual, sophisticated” by the Slovenian publication Parada Plesa, Alma.Sama celebrates the life of Slovenian traveler and revolutionary Alma Karlin (1889-1950) in an energetic and lush non-linear dance theater work. Alma.Sama serves as a timely and relevant story as Karlin was a visionary who shed all that she had been reared to believe as the "right" course of action for a woman of her standing. The Slovenian polyglot, world traveler, painter, theosophist and author of numerous books sacrificed comfort and convention in favor of an often subsistence-level life with the people of South America, India, Japan, and the South Pacific in the years after the First World War. Celebrated for saying, “An eagle must mate in the air or fly alone,” Karlin believed in the power of empathy and embraced the unknown exposing herself to new ways of thinking and understanding cultures and people around the world. Alma.Sama commemorates this historical figure while exploring what the physical and emotional fibers of a visionary might embody today. The project began as a “seed” idea in 2012 when ArtBark was on tour in Europe. While at the Celje Library in Slovenia, they met with dramaturg Marijan Pušavec who dreamt of creating a dance theater work based on the life of Alma Karlin. Inspired by Pušavec’s passion, together they set out to make his vision manifest. In 2015 — after three years of creative development, which included sharing early sections of the work with communities in Connecticut, New York, Santa Barbara, and Los Angeles ¬—ArtBark ventured to Slovenia for the final leg of research with a one month residency to visit historical sites relevant to Alma M. Karlin, to dialog with historians, and integrate of their findings into an evening-length work. Alma.Sama. is a co-production between ArtBark International, Cankarjev Dom Slovenia, and House of Culture Celje. The West Coast performances are supported by the Ministry of Culture Slovenia, Slovenian Embassy in Washington and Ministry of Foreign Affairs Slovenia. Hubbard Collective joins ArtBark as guest artists at ARC Pasadena. Closing the evening with their dynamic work Sacred Matters, the company gives voice to the harsh reality of being Black in America. In Santa Barbara, Nebula Dance Lab will share a work-in-progress created specifically for this project by their Artistic Director Devyn Duex, producer of the HHII Festival.

Featuring sound composition by musician Ben Wagner, the work explores modes of improvisation, embodiment, and spontaneous composition with the topics of seeing and being seen, agency and mindful submission, female kinship, energetic bodies, subtle leadership, and unplanned emergence of content. The duo’s process is centered around a shared vocabulary of physical scores, verbal dialogues, and rituals. Their early research relates to historically female-associated spiritual practices and the connection of the human body to earthly phenomena (attempts to sense and embody rising sea levels, tectonic plates, electromagnetic energy). Mokdessi and Hughes allow research topics to inform their scores without attaching to outcome, and are developing a shared decision-making practice as a method of training sensitivity to desire and mutual intuition, and attempting to model a radical form of deep togetherness.

"More Like Your Mom", created by three women who are child-free by choice, is a multi-media dance theater rollercoaster, shape-shifting through ideas of what it means to be female today when old ideals still hold strong images in our collective conscious. Through games, interactions, and interruptions, LMnO3 encourages the audience to engage with the multitude of ways in which we identify as women by challenging notions of femininity and celebrating alternative ways of channeling the instinct to nurture. This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council as well as the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature. MORE INFO: http://www.triskelionarts.org/lmno3 Photo by Whitney Browne

Staged for two angles, the audience is arranged on dual sides of the performance space and set intimate into the exchanges of the dancers. Relationships emerge as if through a revolving door, and as characters blend qualities, the weight and beauty of each moment smolder into the next. Influenced by the ever-changing demographics and social shifts that are broadening the interpretation of “relation” and “family structure”, "For Whom" examines the significance of nurturing behaviors in human relationships and explores what it means to care for one another, what compassion looks like, and how empathy affects our lives.

Young choreographers ages 5-18 present 13 original works of emerging social consciousness. Movement for Change gives audiences a glimpse into the hearts and minds of 100 children who use the medium of dance to build community and move towards justice and equality. The students are taking a hard look at the world around them. Dances will cover a broad range of topics that will include the influence of social media on personal identity; politics as a social trend; Asian stereotyping; a dance letter to Trump; xenophobia; a parent/child dance; a piece utilizing caution and safety hazard signs as symbols of children's fears and thoughts on leaving childhood behind; and a montage on inspiring stories of teenage girls around the world who have defied and challenged gender oppression and harmful cultural practices. There will also be a few humorous numbers! “We provide a forum for young voices to be heard,” says Pilato. “We encourage students to create material that reflects their responsibility as members of a global community, to search for fresh answers to old questions while exploring the idea that art can effect positive change. We encourage children to take risks, and we support them in their creative vision.” In addition to participating in Loco-Motion's curriculum of modern dance, dance composition, ballet and improvisation techniques, 100 students from seven different dance classes have spent the last nine months in extensive choreography workshops. Young artists who are relatively new to the choreographic process will have the opportunity to showcase their work along side of Loco-Motion's older and more experienced choreographers. Their combined training and performance backgrounds have coalesced and transformed this dedicated group of children into a formidable ensemble. It will prove to be an entertaining and thought-provoking experience for audiences of all ages.

The Company has been home to over twenty New York City dancers since its founding. Every year, ETD provides three emerging New York-based choreographers with $1000 grants to fund the creation of a new piece and subsequently produces and hosts a work-in-progress show featuring each of the new works. The Company’s “Community and International Outreach” program specifically uses dance as a tool to inspire, heal, and build communities for populations who might not otherwise have access to movement programs. The ETD “mobile” program currently conducts twelve workshops a week for the following organizations: PGCMH, CUCS, NYU Langone Medical Center, Odyssey House, and Acacia Network.

ABOUT DANCERS FOR GOOD: During the summer of 2015 dancer Michael Apuzzo of Paul Taylor Dance Company, and event planner/former Broadway performer Eric Gunhus came up with the idea to bring a new and fresh event to East Hampton: a dance festival of some the most prestigious dance companies and prominent dancers in the world, sharing their gifts to raise funds in support of the arts and the local community. Michael & Eric soon partnered with author and fashion/food expert Hal Rubenstein, engineering VP David Nickle and their not-for-profit Fund In The Sun Foundation, an organization with a long history of successful benefits in Fire Island Pines. The four decided to combine their efforts and the collaboration brought Dancers For Good to life with last summer’s well-received inaugural event. The name Dancers For Good is two-fold in meaning: Dance is a discipline that stays with the dancer for life…for good. Additionally, this event brings together incredible dancers eager to give their time, talents and energy for charitable philanthropy…to do good. This celebration allows all of us an opportunity to experience Dancers For Good.
