Black Moon Theatre Company presents BLISS based on the Tibetan Book of the Dead September 8-25, 2016 Black Moon Theatre Company presents BLISS based on the Tibetan Book of the Dead with performances on September 8-25, 2016, at 7pm with 3pm matinees on Saturdays and Sundays at The Flea Theater, 41 White Street New York, NY 10013. Tickets are $20-$30 and can be found at https://web.ovationtix.com/trs/pr/961264. Performances: Tuesdays-Sundays at 7pm, Saturday and Sundays at 3pm (no 3pm performance on 9/11). BLISS follows the journey of consciousness after death, during the interval between death and rebirth (bardo), and serves as an allegorical guide for the living. In this new multi-disciplinary production, Artistic Director René Migliaccio’s staging is a visual and poetic dance/theatre odyssey within the mind of an individual striving to awaken to a Higher Consciousness. The journey is theatrically of double nature: the actor living the text of the Bardo and a Butoh dancer manifesting as his supra consciousness on the path of liberation. Original music features a fusion of ambient and accents of sounds and voices from the world, journeying on a wide spectrum from dark to ethereal moods. Projections create the pictorial environment for the journeyer on his path to liberation, immersing the audience in the symbolic dimension of dreams. The Creative Team Directed by Rene Migliaccio Text adaptation by Alessio Bordoni Performed by Alessio Bordoni Art work by Estella Dupree Original Music by Amaury Groc Choreographer Consultant: Eric Pettigrew Assistant Director of Production: Isabella Schiller Rene Migliaccio (Director): French-Italian born Rene Migliaccio is an award-winning director and the artistic director of Black Moon Theatre Company (New York), and founder of La Compagnie de la Lettre 5 (Montreal). An accomplished director and adaptor, Migliaccio’s work has been performed at notable theaters and festivals across the globe. He began his career in the “expressionistic realism” style and went on to direct a wide range of plays for the Drama Theater Company, among them: Deathwatch by Jean Genet, and Awake and Sing by Clifford Odets. – In 1990, Migliaccio founded Black Moon Productions and directed Fear and Misery of the Third Reich (1996, Los Angeles Playhouse), Nosferatu, and Servant of Two Masters by Carlo Goldoni (1997, Los Angeles Playhouse), among others. In 2000 Migliaccio’s adaptation of Nosferatu performed in Paris, at the Here Arts Center in New York, and travelled to Telluride, Colorado and the Prithvi International Theatre Festival in Mumbai, India in November 2000. – Migliaccio established the non-profit organization Black Moon Theatre Company with Lori Vincent in Brooklyn, NY in 2001. Black Moon brings together multi-disciplinary works. The company launched with a production of The Bakkhai (2001, The Here Arts Center, NYC) and has continued to produce to critical acclaim, nationally and internationally, notably the Kafka Series- The Metamorphosis and The Trial, Fragments (2009), Dante’s Divina Commedia – Inferno (2010), Oscar Wilde’s Salome (2011), and Ponzi, A Dollar and a Scheme by Alessio Bordoni (2012). Rene Migliaccio’s directing work has been published in the Sixth edition on Directing by Francis Hodge and Michael McLain, published by Allyn and Bacon, 2005; and The Electronic Version (eBook) in Perspectives, Pearson Education, 2016. Alessio Bordoni (Performer) Alessio Bordoni is an Italian-born American actor who has performed in numerous productions throughout Europe as well as in NYC, where he resides. He was trained in Germany by Zygmunt Molik, in NYC at HB studio and at the American Mime Theatre under Paul Curtis. Alessio made his stage debut solo, in his own adaptation of Gargantua and Pantagruel by Rabelais (Teatro Tordinona Rome). He then embarked on a two-year tour of Paolo Poli’s staging of Jacques the Fatalist by Diderot, playing Marquis des Arcis. He subsequently portrayed Jean and Schlome, in French and Yiddish, in Primo Levi’s If This is a Man (tour), starred in Dostoevsky’s Demons (Teatro Sala Uno Rome), played solo in Dante’s Divina Commedia – Inferno (New York Fringe Festival/Prague Fringe Festival), performed King Herod in Oscar Wilde’s Salome (BMTC/Flea Theater) and again solo in his first play Charles Ponzi – A Dollar and a Scheme (United Solo Theatre Festival). BLISS is his second work as a playwright and he is thrilled to be presenting it at the Flea. Alessio is also a passionate reader of Dante’s Divine Comedy which he recites regularly at CUNY/NYU. He is a member of Actors’ Equity Association and the Dramatists Guild of America. Alessio’s work has been positively received. (For details check www.alessiobordoni.com) Amaury Groc (Composer) is a French composer who over the last 20 years has composed original music for 7 shows with Rene Migliaccio. He also collaborated with dancer / choreographer Richard Siegal on some of his creations. His compositions are classical, electronic and world music inspired. Amaury has also worked as a sound engineer for recording studios and radios for fifteen years. Amaury is a developer and programmer at Ableton Live, a composition and performance software company. Eric Pettigrew (choreographer) began performing in Québec, Canada, as a dancer and later as an actor exploring stage work, film and television. In order to follow his passion for discovering new ways of expressions of life through the human body, Eric spent several months in Japan studying Butoh dance under Butoh founders Kazuo Ono and Min Tanaka. He has been collaborating with Blackmoon Theatre Company since 2005. ABOUT BLACK MOON THEATRE COMPANY New York City’s Black Moon Theatre Company was founded in 2001 by Artistic Director Rene Migliaccio and Lori Vincent. Black Moon’s New York productions include Oscar Wilde’s Salome, Dante’s Divina Commedia – Inferno (FringeNYC, Prague Festival Praha), Kafka’s The Metamorphosis (FringeNYC, Philly Fringe, La MaMa, Prague Fringe, Edinburgh Fringe), Carlo Goldini’s The Servant of Two Masters (Lincoln Center, Meet The Artist Series), Euripides’ The Bakkhai (HERE), and Internationally, the company has been seen in Germany, the UK, Canada, Norway, and the Czech Republic. http://www.blackmoontheatrecompany.org/ ABOUT THE FLEA THEATER Non-institutional and resolutely noncommercial, The Flea embodies the spirit of adventure and experiment that has defined Off-Off-Broadway since its inception. We are one of the only professional theaters in the city that maintains an open-door policy for artists—a policy that we believe is crucial to keeping New York theater vital. Part playground, part laboratory, part training ground, The Flea has been home to established artists taking new risks, emerging artists developing their ideas, and mid-career artists building sustained audiences and identities. Each year The Flea presents and produces dozens of new works in an environment that is professional, welcoming, and intimate. As a testament to our success, Flea artists have been honored with two OBIE Awards, an Otto Award and, in May 2004, The Flea was given a Drama Desk Award for Distinguished Achievement commending our dedication to adventurous theater. With the continued participation of our founders and an ever-growing community of diverse and creative talents, The Flea strives to represent the wide range of what is possible Off-Off-Broadway. http://www.theflea.org/

STICKY is a work of visual theatre that integrates dance, language, film animation, and choreographed 3-D virtual imaging to explore the nature of bonding and “sticky” situations that arise in long-term romantic relationships. Underlying currents of attraction, repulsion, frustration, and compulsion drive escapism in a world where a couple’s negotiation for power and struggle for identity are contextualized in the current political climate. A collaboration between performers Eun Jung Choi and Guillermo Ortega Tanus of Da·Da·Dance Project (Philadelphia) and choreographer and director Melanie Stewart, STICKY first premiered in Mexico City at the Centro Cultural del Bosque complex in the Teatro de la Danza. The piece makes its New York City premiere at Gibney Dance.

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.

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.

City Opera Ballet presents an all new Romeo and Juliet, choreographed by Amber Willett. This production features an original score, commissioned by City Opera Ballet, composed by Jon Steinmeier. Moving, cinematic, and highly percussive, Steinmeier’s score links with Willett’s emotional and relatable portrayal of Shakespeare's most famous lovers. A story of remarkable contrasts--love and hate, youth and age, a funeral on a wedding day-- COB's Romeo and Juliet is more than a story of pretty teenage lovers, but of voyagers across the barriers that separate forbidden loves, but also creeds, cities, and our own mortalities. Two hearts that couldn’t be joined in life are united in a death that is not sweet, but a warning: to seek concord among social/political differences, among family, among those who love but don’t fully understand us.

Mark Morris returns with his company of 15 dancers for a new, large-scale production that receives its world premiere in September. Layla and Majnun is an Arabian love story that originated as a poem in ancient Persia and is well known among many Middle Eastern and sub-continental cultures. In love from childhood, Layla and Majnun (the name means “possessed”) are not allowed to unite. Majnun, mad in his obsession with Layla, becomes a hermit when she is married off to another man. He devotes his life to writing verses about his profound love for Layla, and although they attempt to meet, they die without ever realizing their relationship. The music for this highly anticipated collaboration between the Mark Morris Dance Group and the Silk Road Ensemble is by the Azerbaijani composer Uzeyir Hajibeyli and performed by the revered singer Alim Qasimov and his daughter, Fargana. Co-presented with Michigan Opera Theatre. Co-presented with Michigan Opera Theatre.

All damn good; all uncompromising. Its premiere event features performances by five NYC-based artists. Each breaks down recognizable molds and blurs the thematic lines between music, dance, theater, performance art, and improvisation.

BalletCollective’s 2016 Season, entitled “What Comes Next,” will further explore the company’s unique collaborative process with world premiere works featuring two collaborations pairing architects Carlos Arnaiz and James Ramsey with composers Judd Greenstein and Ellis Ludwig-Leone respectively. Both works will be choreographed by BalletCollective director Troy Schumacher and will be premiered at NYU Skirball Center on October 27 and 28. The season will also feature Invisible Divide (2015) and will feature live music by Hotel Elephant with an ensemble of seven dancers, including New York City Ballet’s Harrison Coll, Rachel Hutsell Anthony Huxley, Lauren King, Isabella LaFreniere, Ashley Laracey and Lauren Lovette. NEW COLLABORATION: The sixth ballet created in close collaboration between Troy Schumacher and Ellis Ludwig-Leone, with lighting design by Roderick Murray, is inspired by a series of sketches and renderings by architect James Ramsey, the creator of the Lowline, a new underground park and cultural center to be built underneath the Lower East Side of Manhattan, scheduled to open in 2020. The Lowline will be realized in the former Williamsburg Bridge Trolley Terminal, encompassing one acre just below Delancey Street. Ramsey’s design is built on innovative solar technology that will illuminate the historic trolley terminal by use of a “remote skylight” which delivers sunlight below ground using a system of optics. For the new work’s source art, Schumacher and Ludwig-Leone will interpret a series of sketches and renderings of spaces by Ramsey, including the Lowline in different levels of conceptual development, providing inspiration and context for the basis of the work. The new piece will be the sixth work Schumacher and Ludwig-Leone have created and developed together. Their collaboration includes The Impulse Wants Company in 2013; All That We See and Dear and Blackbirds in 2014; and Common Ground and Invisible Divide in 2015. Common Ground, their first work for New York City Ballet, premiered in 2015. NEW COLLABORATION: The first collaboration between composer Greenstein and Schumacher following Clearing Dawn, their 2014 hit at New York City Ballet, will be with Carlos Arnaiz, the architect founder of CAZA. For this collaboration, Schumacher and Greenstein with work with Arnaiz to explore a recognizable moment in time — a signature play by basketball legend Allen Iverson — as viewed through an architect’s eyes. The piece has lighting design by Brandon Stirling Baker. “The history of drawing in architecture has been about the representation of static forms. In an era beset by flux and ephemera, I am fascinated by the possibility that architecture drawing might be an active agent in the formation of something as fluid and personal as music and dance.” said Carlos Aznaiz. NYU Skirball Center for the Performing Arts is the premier venue for the presentation of cultural and performing arts events for New York University and lower Manhattan. NYU Skirball’s mission is to showcase and support diverse and eclectic talent from around the world, while cultivating audiences for live performance through deeper engagement opportunities.

This passionate ballet production contrasts concepts of duality through light and dark and a dramatic simplicity of sets as well as costumes splashed with color.

Open World Dance Foundation is a non-profit organization promoting the preservation of true classical ballet and art education, which introduces underprivileged children and youth to the many facets of professional ballet and theatre. In support of our mission Misty Copeland and Calvin Royal III, who are guest artists from American Ballet Theatre, will be performing as Cinderella and Prince in this production. They will share the stage with other professional dancers from all over the United States, and local children and youth of different cultural and ethnic backgrounds, promoting the Foundation's motto "United by Dance". This new creation of the ballet Cinderella has been inspired by orphans of St. Petersburg, Russia where they sketched on paper what they thought this fairytale should look like onstage. A drawing by an eleven-year-old girl of Cinderella's housedress was chosen as an inspiration for the costume design that will be worn by Misty Copeland on stage. Another young gifted orphan sketched her own ideas of all scenes of the ballet and they became backdrops for the show and gave life to the stage design. With the imagination and creation of these talented kids these drawings are now the inspiration that will come to life for the Open World Dance Foundation's production of Cinderella.

Nederlands Dans Theater 1 returns to New York with a 2016 season that includes four U.S. premieres by Sol León and Paul Lightfoot, Crystal Pite, and Marco Goecke, running November 16 – 19, 2016 at New York City Center. Nederlands Dans Theater, under the Artistic Direction of choreographer Paul Lightfoot, is recognized as one of the world’s most prolific and creative contemporary dance companies. The season features the U.S. premieres of Safe as Houses (2001) and Stop-Motion (2014) choreographed by Sol León and Paul Lightfoot; The Statement (2016), choreographed by Crystal Pite; and Woke up Blind (2016), choreographed by Marco Goecke. “Nederlands Dans Theater has a strong connection and history to New York City, and we are thrilled to introduce these four pieces to American audiences,” said Paul Lightfoot. These dances feature the finest dancers working in the Netherlands today, and will highlight NDT’s diverse and acclaimed repertoire.” About the Performances: Safe as Houses (2001), choreographed by house choreographers Sol León and Paul Lightfoot to secular music by Johann Sebastian Bach, was inspired by the ancient Chinese book of I Ching. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qCf8oMwauWY&feature=youtu.be Stop-Motion (2014), choreographed by Sol León and Paul Lightfoot to music by Max Richter, features seven dancers depicting a process of farewell and transformation, reinforced by large screens that show delayed video projections, which include their daughter Saura. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uz_k7BEZY2I&feature=youtu.be Woke up Blind (2016), choreographed by NDT’s Associate Choreographer Marco Goecke, was inspired by two love songs by American singer/songwriter Jeff Buckley, who died tragically and young. Two female and five male dancers are drawn into an acoustic world that contrasts with Buckley’s vocal power and his frenetic guitar sounds. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tr8yuY6QXiA&feature=youtu.be The Statement (2016), choreographed by Crystal Pite, on a new composition by Owen Belton with spoken text by playwright Jonathan Young, takes a contemporary world view of power, conflict and morality. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rragD1P34NA Nederlands Dans Theater will present four performances at New York City Center: Wednesday, November 16 at 8 pm, Thursday, November 17 at 8 pm, Friday, November 18 at 8 pm, Saturday, November 19 at 8 pm.

“Chipaumire has become a rock star of downtown dance, with a majestic quality that blows everything else out of the water.” (Dance Magazine) The Zimbabwean choreographer Nora Chipaumire made her UMS debut as a member of Urban Bush Women in 2008 and now brings her latest work, portrait of myself as my father, to Ann Arbor. The performance celebrates and critiques masculinity, manhood, and ideas around the “African male.” The two performers — Senegalese dancer Kaolack joins Chipaumire — are tethered together in a makeshift boxing ring, battling their shadows and their ancestors and reflecting on what it is about the Black African male body that both intimidates and intrigues us.

The core of this practice is to gain freedom in motion. By moving away from any ideology, style, form or aesthetic, we can reexamine our physical abilities with fresh eyes. The work refers to information from various movement disciplines (biomechanics, martial arts, somatic practices, contemporary dance & contact improvisation) and offers a wide spectrum of tools to study our body, to understand movement and communicate physically. ANIMAL INSTINCT offers natural movement patterns to create rich duets based on improvisation. This workshop will help developing the bodily-kinesthetic intelligence to provide dancers with the agility and coordination to complete the movements successfully. We will work on partnering exercises to expand our personal movement vocabulary and our ability to physically communicate in a duet. TOPICS we will explore/study: - Body preparation (warm-up/cool-down) - Physical Adaptation - Flexibility and movement fluidity - Undulation and spiral patterns - Muscle tonus - Hands as feet and feet as hands - Reflexive awareness - Structural limitations & manipulation - Freedom in expression We will work in various constellations (solo, duet or group work), studying the never-ending possibilities that occur in dynamic improvisations. We will re-inhabit our dancing body and emerge ourselves into the flow of movement. The ANIMAL INSTINCT is a frame in which one can explore his own body in relation to a partner/partners. The starting point for this exploration is the pleasure that comes from bodily communication. We will learn the effect of the physical forces that are around us and how they can be utilized into our partner body and to ourselves. We will learn how to fall, roll, jump, fly and manipulate. We will examine touch qualities and explore our imagination and curiosity. ANIMAL INSTINCT can be divided into three layers: body preparation, body communication, body migration. Each layer is an independent universe that can exist on its own but is designed to support, develop & complete the other layers. Together they represent what I define as movement liberation. By diving into the world of movement, we can start perceiving ourselves as movement ambassadors, as a reference point to ‚body inhabitants’. It grows into a responsibility, a missionary quest, to bring back our natural heritage to be in movement, to become motion. BODY PREPARATION The foundation layer. The work consists a variety of movement tasks/exercises to understand the body as an individual entity. By working with the solo body, we can differentiate, dissect and map the body properties, limitations and potentials. The work aims to establish tools for self-discipline and self exploration of the body. BODY COMMUNICATION In this layer the exploration focus is on the universe of physical communication with another person. When working with a partner, we can transform the motivation for movement to a reaction based practice. We are not alone anymore. We are being affected by external forces/intentions and we can clarify our desires and motivations. This layer helps to experience evolution through dependency on another being. BODY MIGRATION The last layer introduces group constellations. The exponential increase of the ever-changing variables, confronts the individual to adapt and change constantly, evolving into a state where the speed of our thoughts is equalised with our body reactions. In this frame, one can examine himself/herself through a wider lens. We are social beings and we need to develop skills to exist within a group. When combined together to a body of work, we can take our heads 'out of the water’ and merge into a wider context: We are living in a demobilized society where movement is being perceived as luxury/hobby and the body is being appreciated merely on its aesthetic properties. By diving into the world of movement, we can start perceiving ourselves as movement ambassadors, as a reference point to 'body inhabitants’. It grows into a responsibility, a missionary quest, to bring back our natural heritage to be in movement, to become motion. SCHEDULE: Friday, 25.11.: 6pm - 9pm Saturday, 26.11.: 11am - 6pm (1h break) Sunday, 27.11.: 11am - 6pm (1h break) LEVEL: The workshop is open for beginners and advanced movers. LANGUAGE: Language is english Translation into german is possible MATAN'S VIDEOS: https://www.youtube.com/user/justobehappy https://vimeo.com/matanlevkowich BIO MATAN LEVKOWICH: Matan is a dancer, choreographer and movement teacher inspired by social phenomena and human behaviour. His approach to movement is based on the study of the body's intuition. The study of intuition enables to navigate through instability and develops trust in the body’s capacities. His choreographic works explore narratives of body/relations. His main interest lays in utilizing coincidence into stable, communicative scenarios. Matan started his physical education in Rene Cassin high school for sport. Until the age 18 he was trained to be a basketball player. His first encounter with dance was 2007-2009 in The Group in Jaffa – School for Contemporary Dance, 2009-2010 he studies at The Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance, 2010-2013 he continued his studies at Salzburg Experimental Academy of Dance (SEAD).

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)

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

Colorado Ballet will present a collection of three master ballet works to live music by the Colorado Ballet Orchestra in Ballet MasterWorks, which includes Firebird, by choreographer Yuri Possokhov and music by Igor Stravinsky. The ballet is based on the Russian folklore tale of the Firebird, a magical creature who assists Prince Ivan Tsarevich in rescuing the maiden Tsarevna from Kashchei the sorcerer. The production will also feature Serenade choreographed by George Balanchine to Tchaikovsky’s “Serenade for Strings in C.” Serenade was the first original ballet Balanchine created in America and is one of the signature works of New York City Ballet’s repertory. Colorado Ballet is extremely excited to present a work by choreographer Jiří Kylián for the first time—rounding out the program with Petite Mort by Kylián with music by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Kylián created this ballet for the Salzburg Festival on the second centenary of Mozart’s death.
