With a national tour planned, a new venue for repertory works and an expanded schedule of classes to meet the needs of our new neighborhood, NYTB is in a stronger position than it has ever been to advance its mission to bring the appreciation of dance to an evermore-diverse audience. And we’re not done, stay tuned as we are making plans to be bigger and better than ever.” The Company’s 2014/2015 season will include a national tour as well as repertory performances at the 92nd St. Y (January 10-12, 2015), New York Live Arts (February 18-21, 2015), and Danspace (June 15-20, 2015).

(March 6-8, 2015), and Carnival of the Animals (June 5-7, 2015). All performances take place at Florence Gould Hall, 55 East 59th Street, NYC. Tickets are $35 for Children and $40 Adults; Subscriptions run from $90 to $140. Tickets and series subscriptions are available online www.nytb.org or via email at admin@nytb.org, or by mailing an order form (available online) with check or credit card information to New York Theatre Ballet, 131 East 10th Street, 2nd floor, New York, NY 10003. “For all their childlike wonder, most story ballets don’t cater to the average kid’s attention span. With its long-running Once Upon a Ballet Series, New York Theater Ballet consolidates the classics into hour-long productions for the under-10 crowd and puts parents’ minds at ease.” – The New York Times Keith Michael’s The Nutcracker – December 19-21, 2014 New York Theatre Ballet (NYTB) returns for a fourth year of Keith Michael’s The Nutcracker, an enchanting holiday ballet. From clockwork imps to a luminous owl that flies above the audience, mice dressed in polka dots and dancers dancing with huge chopsticks, this timeless, re-imagined classic bursts with energy and excitement. This holiday ballet, danced to Tchaikovsky’s beloved score, is set in Art Nouveau style circa 1907 with innovative choreography by long-time NYTB choreographer, Keith Michael, and costumes by Resident Costume Designer of the Metropolitan Opera, Sylvia Nolan. “One of the most kid-friendly around!” – The New York Times Cinderella – February 7-8, 2015 With a Dancing Clock, wacky Stepsisters and everyone’s favorite princess, Cinderella features choreography by Donald Mahler, costumes by Metropolitan Opera’s Resident Costume Designer, Sylvia Taalsohn Nolan and sets by Gillian Bradshaw Smith. Appropriate for girls and boys of all ages. GOOSE! – March 7-8, 2015 The wit, wisdom, and whimsy of a lively baker’s dozen of Mother Goose characters. They literally leap from the page to the stage to stir the imagination of the young and the young-at-heart, just as they have for centuries! Carnival of the Animals – June 6-7, 2015 In a magical forest, Queen Diana and her shaggy lion rule a charming assortment of animals who live more or less peaceably until a pair of lost children wander in, and then the fun begins! Choreography by Beth Storey Taylor. “The most endearing and engaging part of the show happened … during a prelude led by the company’s artistic director, Diana Byer. In an effort to acquaint young audiences with the behind-the-scenes work of putting on a ballet, Ms. Byer invited her animated production manager, Pepper Fajans, to demonstrate the meticulous art of marking the stage to indicate where props and dancers should go. This also served as a basic math lesson, as Mr. Fajans divided the floor into halves and quarters with bits of colored tape. Ms. Byer then ushered out five “dancing examples” (children from New York Theater Ballet’s school) to show how this task helps to organize bodies in a given space. My 8-year-old companion never seemed more enthralled than when other kids her age arrived onstage, dutifully arranging themselves into a diagonal, a triangle, a square. Their simple, swift and spirited performance, more relatable than any fairy tale, was hard to top.” – The New York Times ABOUT NEW YORK THEATRE BALLET New York Theatre Ballet (NYTB), founded in 1978 by artistic director Diana Byer, is the most widely seen chamber ballet company in the United States and has been hailed by The New York Times as “an invaluable company.” NYTB is dedicated to inspiring a love of dance in diverse audiences through performances of chamber ballet masterpieces and bold new works, as well as innovative one-hour ballets for children, all at affordable prices.

Award-winning playwright, Yussef El Guindi, has created this black comedy, which examines the thwarted dreams of immigrants eager to make it in their adopted country. As converts to the American Dream, notions of success and failure become challenging and lethal. Mixing realism with memory and dance, the show dissects with increasing ferocity this couple’s marriage and aspirations. Contains strong language: for mature audiences only. LAUNCH PAD Previews a Black Comedy About the American Dream 
 UCSB’s Risa Brainin directs Yussef El Guindi’s ‘The Talented Ones’ 
 
Immigrants in search of the American Dream find it isn’t all it’s cracked up to be in Yussef El Guindi’s The Talented Ones, a play currently in production by UC Santa Barbara’s LAUNCH PAD. A program of UCSB’s Department of Theater and Dance, LAUNCH PAD offers professional playwrights the opportunity to fully produce a new original work with faculty members, guest artists and students eager to participate. El Guindi is in residence at UCSB, continuing to rewrite and tweak the play even as the actors are in rehearsal rapidly approaching the first public performance. 
 “With LAUNCH PAD, our students work with a living writer on the very first production of his or her play,” said Brainin, professor and chair of the Department of Theater and Dance at UCSB and LAUNCH PAD’s artistic director. She is directing what LAUNCH PAD refers to as a “Preview Production.” Every performance is a preview allowing the playwright to continue working on the play while it is being played in front of an audience. “One of the unique opportunities presented by this process is that our students are actually creating the roles. The playwright often rewrites according to what he or she learns from working with the actors.” 
Through the process, students develop important skills, Brainin continued. “For example, they learn to be extremely flexible with text. They have to be responsive to the writer when he or she is trying out a new line or a new scene. Sometimes they have to learn a new scene on the fly – sometimes even between performances. When they graduate, it is likely that new plays will be their bread and butter. LAUNCH PAD prepares our acting students for life after school.” 
 The Talented Ones features a cast of five, all roles for young actors. “The roles are rich and difficult,” said Brainin. “The play opens with a substantial scene between Cindy and Patrick, two characters who are very attracted to each other. But Cindy is married to Omar, and Omar is Patrick’s best friend. So the complications begin immediately.” 
 “I like that the play’s characters have very high stakes,” Brainin continued. “Every play has its own world and its own challenges. In the 10 plays we’ve worked on since LAUNCH PAD began, there have been no two alike in terms of style, content and form. I love that.” She added that “The Talented Ones” is extremely challenging to cast as the play finds the characters at different stages in their lives. That meant double casting both Cindy and Omar. “Also, the characters are immigrants, so that imposed certain parameters on the casting,” Brainin said. Playing Cindy, younger and older, are Junior Joré Aaron-Broughton and Senior Emily Newsome. Junior Rigoberto Sanchez is Omar at age 22 and Senior Roberto Tolentino plays the same character at 30. Patrick is played by sophomore James Reisner. 
 With emotion-packed scenes laced with wicked humor, the play’s tone is unique. Brainin finds this an exciting directorial challenge. And there are other interesting challenges: “From a director’s standpoint, there are multiple realities in the play that must be addressed and made clear to the audience: present, past and fantasy,” she said. “How we move seamlessly between them is a fun, collaborative effort. Our design team of Greg Mitchell, Ann Bruice, Michael Klaers, Randy Tico, our choreographer, Christina McCarthy, and I all work together closely to create the distinctive world of the play.” An award-winning playwright, El Guindi is best known for his play Pilgrims Musa and Sheri in the New World, which received the Steinberg/American Theater Critics Association’s 2012 New Play Award and the Seattle Times’ Footlight Award for best world premiere play. His most recent play Threesome, originally produced at Portland Stage Company, is moving to Off-Broadway this spring. Other plays include Language Rooms, which earned El Guindi the Edgerton Foundation New American Play Award as well as A Contemporary Theatre’s New Play Award The Review, a short Internet play performed via Skype with actors in Cairo and San Francisco Jihad Jones and the Kalashnikov Babes and Our Enemies: Lively Scenes of Love and Combat, which was among six finalists for the 2009 American Theater Critics Association’s Steinberg/New Play Award. 
 The first preview performance of "The Talented Ones" is Thursday, May 21, at 8 p.m. in UCSB’s Hatlen Theater. Additional performances will take place at 8 p.m. on May 22, 23 and 28-30, and at 2 p.m. on May 30. Tickets are $17 general, and $13 for UCSB students, faculty and staff members, alumni, and seniors.

The School of American Ballet announces the Workshop Performance Benefit 2015 on Tuesday, June 2, 2015. The evening begins with cocktails at 5:30pm in Juilliard’s Morse Hall, followed by the performance at 7pm in the Peter Jay Sharp Theater at Lincoln Center. A seated dinner at 9pm at the Mandarin Oriental will conclude the evening. For more information, please contact the special events office at SAB at (212) 769-6610. Tickets and tables are available at www.sab.org/workshopbenefit. The Workshop Performance Benefit 2015 is The School of American Ballet’s most anticipated event of the year. The annual Workshop Performances are SAB’s only public performances and a rare opportunity to get a sneak preview of the ballet world’s up and coming young stars. A Benefit Dinner follows the Tuesday evening performance at Lincoln Center, and attracts more than 550 arts patrons, corporate VIPs and New York’s social elite. This year’s event is headed by Chairmen Michele Barakett, Linda Daines, Hillary Lane Hochberg, Nell Kleinschmidt, and Max R. Shulman; and Young Patron Chairman Stephanie Linka. This year’s benefit will celebrate the legendary Rudolf Nureyev and commemorate the 20th Anniversary of the Rudolf Nureyev Dance Scholarship. At the peak of his career, Mr. Nureyev spent many hours in the classroom, polishing his technique alongside SAB’s students in Stanley Williams’s acclaimed advanced men’s class. In 1995, the Rudolf Nureyev Dance Foundation generously presented the School with funding for an annual scholarship to support promising students in honor of Mr. Nureyev’s affinity for SAB and Mr. Williams’s teaching. In 1964, Alexandra Danilova, George Balanchine’s former classmate at the Imperial Ballet and a leading ballerina of Diaghilev’s Ballets Russes and the Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo joined SAB’s faculty. In 1965, Madame Danilova established SAB’s annual year-end Workshop Performances, giving the School’s advanced students an opportunity to participate in professionally staged, publicly performed productions of classic ballet works. Since its inception, the Workshop Performances have seen hundreds of SAB’s advanced students make their public debut as they prepare to leave SAB and go on to dance on the world’s top stages. The New York Times coined Workshop a “spot-them-before-they-are-stars showcase”. Scores of notable SAB alumni have performed at Workshop, including Merrill Ashley, Peter Boal, Maria Kowroski, Lourdes Lopez, Sara Mearns, Benjamin Millepied, Ethan Stiefel, and Wendy Whelan. The post-performance dinner has evolved through the years, from an intimate gathering hosted by SAB co-founder Lincoln Kirstein at his Gramercy Park townhouse into a festive fundraiser held in the SAB studios. The continued success of the Workshop Performance Benefit has led to the use of another wonderful New York venue. The post-performance dinner will take place in the magnificent ballroom at the Mandarin Oriental with the City’s iconic skyline as a backdrop. The 2015 Workshop Performances program will include 19th & 20th Century Masters (Petipa, Bournonville, Balanchine & Robbins); Harlequinade (“Ballabile des Enfants”), Choreography by George Balanchine, Music by Riccardo Drigo; William Tell (pas de deux), Choreography by August Bournonville, Music by Gioachino Rossini; The Sleeping Beauty (pas de deux), Choreography by Peter Martins (after Marius Petipa), Music by Peter Ilyitch Tschaikovsky; Valse-Fantaisie, Choreography by George Balanchine, Music by Mikhail Glinka; Stars and Stripes (3rd Regiment “Thunder and Gladiator”), Choreography by George Balanchine, Music by John Philip Sousa, arranged by Hershy Kay; and Fanfare, Choreography by Jerome Robbins, Music by Benjamin Britten.

The Peter Jay Sharp Theater is located at 155 W. 65th Street (between Amsterdam and Broadway). The Mandarin Oriental is located at 80 Columbus Circle at 60th Street, NYC. ABOUT SCHOOL OF AMERICAN BALLET The School of American Ballet, the official training academy of the New York City Ballet, was established in 1934 by legendary choreographer George Balanchine and philanthropist Lincoln Kirstein as the first and most essential step in their quest to create an American classical ballet company. SAB, located at New York City's Lincoln Center, is the premier ballet academy in the United States, training more students who go on to become professional dancers than any other school. SAB's former students fill the ranks of the New York City Ballet and other leading U.S. and international ballet companies. #

THREE WORLD PREMIERES IN THREE DAYS TO MARK MORDANCE’S THIRD SEASON Ensemble of six takes the stage at downtown’s Sheen Center New York, May 5, 2015- Mordance, in its mission to create modern, relevant movement that maintains the integrity of classical ballet, embarks on its third season with three world premieres by Artistic Director Morgan McEwen. The first ballet company to perform at The Sheen Center for its opening in 2014, MorDance: Season Three moves back into the black box theater for three shows only this spring, June 4-6 at 7:30 p.m. With their ensemble of six dancers, the evening seeks to re-visit ballet in its purest form. The works exploration of the athleticism that exists in classical ballet compliments McEwen’s employment of agility, witty musicality and a speed that blurs the lines that divide classicism and contemporary movement of the 21st century. “In using a diverse collection of artists from different schools and backgrounds, MorDance and this seasons repertory is a hopeful vehicle to cross generational gaps and social divides,” remarks McEwen. “With the structure of classical ballet spoken in a contemporary dialect, this season rings true to the mission to invite younger audiences into the ballet community through the use of innovative ideas, music and line.” A full-bodied evening length program, Concordant, an earthy and extensive pas de duex, void of partnering, will open the show. Set to selections by Balmorhea, the focus on the relationship between the dancers through time and space is highlighted with very full and breathy movement quality for McEwen and her partner.  To contrast, Eight Pebbles, is a new work of four dancers in 8 movements. With the beginning of its composition in the fall of 2014 at the Silo, this quartet reveals McEwen’s signature speedy footwork set to music composed by Marc Mellitis and played by Real Quiet. With elements of classical and neo-classical line, gestural port de bras seal this work with a lightness fitting for an opening selection. Finally, Romp, a full company work will round out the program. Utilizing a musical arrangement that encompasses various current artists, this ballet will make use of the Sheen’s black box stage in unconventional ways. With the removal of the wings during this finale, dancers are invited to utilize the space with increased opportunity to expand in depth and breath of movement. This set-up will also allow audiences to peer into the more technical aspects of a theater and how it may shape a works final presentation. Tickets to MorDance: Season Three are $30 in advance and can be purchased at https://web.ovationtix.com/trs/pr/946650 Tickets can be purchased at the door for $35. The Sheen Center is located at 18 Bleecker Street in Manhattan and is accessible by the N or R Train to Prince Street, B, D, F, and M to Broadway-Lafayette or the 6 to Bleeker Street.  PERFORMANCE SCHEDULE Thursday, June 4 at 7:30 p.m. Friday, June 5 at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, June 6 at 7:30 p.m.

 "The effect is both androgynous and sexual, anonymous and exposing, which reflects a movement vocabulary that is simultaneously beastly and made mechanical through precision and repetition, executed with an energy that almost seems inhuman in its sustained exertion.

Esoteric Dance Project presents its performance series Juxtaposition, premiering two fundamentally diverse creations by fellow Artistic Directors Brenna Pierson-Tucker and Christopher Tucker. This will mark the inaugural performance of Esoteric Dance Project’s fifth year as a company as well as commemorating EDP’s fifth self-produced production. This weekend long series examines the contrasting spectrum of works bridged by the medium of dance: Orchestrated Homage in Five Movements respects the structure of classical composition and is inspired by its nuances and construction to create modern movement; Public Privacy, through the use of overheard conversations and anecdotes, explores movement and situations derived from these observations. Orchestrated Homage in Five Movements is an exploration into the forms and structures of classical music. By using five distinct styles found within orchestral arrangements as a starting point, the piece translates the compositions of score development into the construction of dance and movement. Ranging from the explorative nature of an “Etude” to the complexities of a “Fugue”, this work is intended to draw together the parallels between dance and music creation. While the music and architecture of the piece are heavily rooted in classical forms, these roots were then transcribed into the modern vocabulary to express the final interpretation. We as humans, particularly in urban societies, spend copious amount of hours interacting with strangers on a detached level often not even recognizing the connections ourselves. These associations happen frequently via public transportation, restaurants and even normal pedestrian encounters. As this routine becomes monotonous, the background figures fade away and we are often observed even though there is a sense of solitude. Public Privacy explores these acts of open candor through the use of overheard conversations and anecdotes. From these often hilarious and sometimes awkward public utterances, the score was composed with the collaboration of a sound artist and then applied as the background for the movement exploration.

The Earth Harp is the largest stringed instrument on the planet. Part sculpture, part instrument, and part architecture, the sound it creates is nothing short of remarkable. Together with one of the most unique and breathtaking ensembles in the world, the Earth Harp Collective, inventor William Close pushes the envelope of the musical experience – making beautiful music with a massive physics machine. The long golden strings will be played by Close running rosin-covered gloves along the instrument, creating beautiful, cello like tones. Turning the Earth/landscape into a giant harp, her strings have stretched 1,000 feet to the top of the Seattle Space Needle, temples in Vietnam and the Colosseum in Rome. In another “first work” for the Festival, the iconic Superman Building becomes part of the instrument for an extraordinary musical performance. Three-days of celebration, including community “plays” with local students from FirstWorks Arts Learning, culminate in Festival concerts on Saturday, June 13. The Earth Harp is part of the Providence International Arts Festival June 11-14 put on by FirstWorks & the City of Providence.

Internationally noted street artists Etam Cru and Natalia Rak will also be exhibiting their unique and flamboyant visual styles through new works here in the Creative Capital. Rak’s large-scale works depicting femininity and nature in bold, colorful juxtapositions have graced walls in Hawaii, Sweden and Italy, and she has staged “Art Battles” in New York City’s Bryant Park. Polish duo Etam Cru (street artists Sainer and Bezt) creates giant murals, often several stories tall, that are steeped in folklore and mysticism throughout eastern Europe, as well as in Portugal and the U.S. Throughout the festival, The Avenue Concept’s art work and programming will foster a conversation about the role of art in the public space, and the way creative expression is instrumental in making a city vibrant and inclusive.

“Sarah Ruhl’s distinctive tone and technique have quickly made her one of the most produced and most admired of young playwrights… Often in the same instant, she makes us laugh and gasp at the hideous, hilarious absurdity of life.” –The Boston Globe Trinity Rep celebrates the Providence International Arts Festival with the world premiere of “Melancholy Play: A Chamber Musical”, written by Tony Award nominee and Brown alum Sarah Ruhl, along with prolific Public Theater (NY) composer Todd Almond.

The World Premiere of THE MAR VISTA, a dance/theater work written and choreographed by Yehuda Hyman in collaboration with the Mystical Feet Company (Ron Kagan, Dwight Kelly, Amanda Schussel and Hyman), will be presented at The Theater at the 14th Street Y, 344 E. 14th Street, from June 11 – 13, 2015 at 8pm and June 14, 2015 at 3pm and 7pm, as part of NYTF’s KulturfestNYC. Tickets are $18 in advance or $22.50 at the door. Tickets are available at 646-395-4310 or www.labajournal.com/2014/12/mar-vista/. THE MAR VISTA is a fractured memoir about an American Jewish family. Taking place over a span of almost 100 years, THE MAR VISTA weaves together dance, gesture, spoken word, improvisation and ritual to tell a comical/tragical fragmented narrative about Hyman’s parents. “Mar Vista” is Spanish for “view of the sea.” It is also the name of the Los Angeles neighborhood where Hyman grew up, a working class area on the Westside that had a high population of World War II and Korean War veterans and their families, many of whom bought their homes with the help of GI loans. The neighborhood’s name held within it a promise of views of the Pacific Ocean for all. Unfortunately, the Hyman’s small house was at the bottom of a big hill, which blocked his family’s view. In this lyrical and quirky new work, Hyman attempts to climb that hill and witness the sea below. THE MAR VISTA is performed in three parts: Part 1: Hamsa, is a solo performed by Hyman, which deals with curses, Passover, the 10 plagues and the story of his father. Part 2: Leaning Into Moisture, a duet for Hyman and Amanda Schussel about his mother and her forbidden wartime romance in Istanbul. Part 3: Cincinnati, takes place in Cincinnati, 1951 on the night that Hyman’s father proposed to his mother – in a hurry. The MAR VISTA was incubated at LABA: A Laboratory for Jewish Culture at the 14th Street Y. “LABA was the breeding ground for the birth of THE MAR VISTA,” explained Artistic Director Ronit Muszkatblit. “That year the theme of ‘Mother’ resonated with Yehuda and inspired him to develop this exciting dance theater work.” Creative Credits Artistic Director/Choreographer: Yehuda Hyman Performers: Yehuda Hyman, Ron Kagan, Dwight Kelly, Amanda Schussel Costume Designer: Amy Page Lighting Designer: Kryssy Wright Sound Designer: Dominick Boyle Yehuda Hyman was born in Los Angeles to immigrant parents from Poland and Russia. He began making dances in NYC at the Riverside Dance Festival and Washington Square Church. His work has been produced at the McCarter Theatre, Mark Taper Forum, San Diego Repertory Theater, and Highways Performance Space among others. Honors include two NEA Grants, Kennedy Center Fund for New American Plays Award, Jerome Fellowship and grants from the Center for Jewish Culture and Creativity. He performed his solo piece, The Mad 7 at the NYC Fringe, the JCC Manhattan and across the U.S. and performs with Target Margin Theater (at HERE Arts Center, Chocolate Factory and the Bushwick Starr). He was a 2013/14 Artist Fellow at the LABA House of Study/14th Street Y. He received his M.F.A. in Dance from Sarah Lawrence College and currently teaches in the Dance/Movement Therapy M.S. program at Sarah Lawrence College.

Oumou Sangaré, or “Sangaré the Songbird,” is Mali’s great diva and a Grammy Award-winning international star. Sangaré the Songbird carries on that tradition with her spellbinding vocals and powerful songs that strike deep in the heart, using music to comment on life as it really is. Oumou Sangaré’s huge natural range and sense of rhythm is both remarkable and effortless; by turn deep and powerful, soaring and sensuous. At the Festival on the Niger, “The voice of Oumou Sangaré is like a burning fire over the staccato punch of electric bass, the rattle of djembe drum, and the crack of cowrie on calabash.” In keeping with PIAF’s focus on the world-class in the Creative Capital and abroad, she teams up with her Malian countryman Sidy Maiga, winner of the 2011 RI State Council on the Arts Folk Arts Fellowship and a Rhode Island-based master drummer in whose hands the djembe sings, laughs, whispers and electrifies. Oumou Sangare and Sidy Maiga are part of the Providence International Arts Festival June 11-14 put on by FirstWorks & the City of Providence.

Imagine a ballet where NAO robots and humans dance to Maywa Denki’s mechanical musical orchestra, whose instruments double as witty art installations. Brimming with good-natured humor and emotional insight, this startling international hit by Blanca Li—who has collaborated with the Paris Opera Ballet and the Metropolitan Opera and choreographed films for Pedro Almodovar, videos by Beyoncé and Daft Punk, and Jean-Paul Gaultier’s runway shows—is an upside-down trip through a magical, topsy-turvy world in which everything becomes its other. Human dancers become robots and robots dance like humans in a fantastical trip into the future.

Sky Candy, Austin’s premiere aerial and circus arts theatre company and studio, is proud to announce the world premiere of Swings Asunder, directed by world-travelled dancer Nathan rumbaugh. This avant garde aerial dance exploration of gender identity and self-worth will run June 20th - July 3rd, 2015 at the Rollins Theater at the Long Center. Swings Asunder will examine gender duality versus fluidity, and how we struggle to fit the molds of masculinity and femininity through life’s rites of passage. A man cracks raw eggs and drinks them whole... Four women are contained by a metal cube, shifting within its bounds as it lifts into the air... Two men posture like peacocks as a herd of turtle-women drift nearby... Swings Asunder will draw from the lyricism of modern dance movement as well as the stylized, precise movements of gesture to create a world where gender roles shift fluidly within the same body and blow up to extreme proportions, identities develop, die, and are reborn anew, and perspectives shift through the courage of self exploration. The cast of Swings Asunder includes Sky Candy performers Chelsea Laumen, Caroline Poe, Jamie Roberts, and Cory Allen, and guest artists Hailley Laurèn, Taryn Lavery, Amy Myers, and Leila Noone. The design team includes Composer Justin Sherburn, Set Designer Ia Ensterä, Lighting Designer Patrick Anthony, and Costume and Makeup Design by Wendy Sanders of Blood and Glitter Makeup. This production has been generously funded by The Creative Fund's Q Rental Subsidy Grant program. The Creative Fund is a funding mechanism that provides much needed support to local performing artists enabling them to further their creative endeavors. This project is supported in part by the Cultural Arts Division of the City of Austin Economic Development Department.

Returning for its second season in Washington DC, Chamber Dance Project will feature world premieres and favorite works at the gorgeous Lansburgh Theatre (450 7th St NW, Washington, DC 20004), all integrated with live music by CDP’s own string quartet. Celebrated choreographer Diane Coburn Bruning founded the organization in 2000 in New York City and moved to D.C. in 2014. She has gathered together an impressive roster of solo dancers from the Joffrey, Atlanta, Milwaukee, and Washington ballets to perform contemporary pieces by four choreographers. Highlights of the program include the world premieres of Darrell Grand Moultrie’s Wild Swans and Diane Coburn Bruning’s Arranged, D.C. premieres of Ann Carlson’s satirical Four Men In Suits and Bruning’s sensuous Journey, encore performances of Bruning’s powerful pieces Exit Wounds and Time Has Come, and Jorge Amarante’s tango-flavored crowd-pleased, Sur. Each performance will also feature a segment of CDP’s enormously popular “structured improv,” where the dancers will create a piece from audience suggestions, offering a unique vantage point on the intersection between concept and creation, breaking down the fourth-wall between audience and artist.

One enters a world with its own internal logic, a sensual, organic world of movement, language, and images where one is pulled along by currents unseen and inevitable." [Dance Magazine] ZviDance brings its audiences a passionate vision of community in a modern age. A collaborative alliance among artists, the company's stirring work celebrates diversity by melding movement genres into the distinct dance vocabulary which is provocative both in form and in subject matter. Led by Israeli-born Artistic Director Zvi Gotheiner and Executive Director, Nikki Chalas, the company is shaped by a synergistic model of creation, involving the ensemble and designers from the initial research phase, pushing the methodology and ethics of a creation process within an interdisciplinary format. “Zvi Gotheiner’s choreography suggests that he is as much sociologist as dance-maker.” [Alastair Macaulay, The New York Times] In the last 24 years of existence, ZviDance has received critical praise and stable funding for its artistic projects. Recently, one of the company’s signature works, DABKE, was recognized by the New York Times as one of Alastair Macaulay’s TOP TEN DANCE FAVORITES OF 2013. The company performs frequently at home in such New York venues as the Joyce Theater, Dance Theater Workshop and Lincoln Center Out-of-Doors. ZviDance has toured across North America to festivals such as Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival and The American Dance Festival, and abroad to Germany, Poland, Russia, Israel, Colombia, Brazil, Ecuador and Japan. BIOGRAPHIES ZVI GOTHEINER (Artistic Director) Born and raised in a kibbutz in northern Israel, Zvi began his artistic career as a gifted violinist with the Young Kibbutzim Orchestra, where he attained the rank of soloist and Concertmaster at age 15. He began dancing at 17, and soon after, formed his first performance group. Zvi arrived in New York in 1978 on a dance scholarship from the America-Israel Cultural Foundation and danced with the Joyce Trisler Dance Company, Feld Ballets/NY and Bat-Sheva Dance Company. After directing Tamar Ramle and the Jerusalem Tamar Dance Companies in Israel and the Israeli Chamber Dance Company in New York, he founded ZviDance. NIKKI CHALAS (Executive Director) is a New York City-based creative producer and arts executive who celebrates the pulse of today's culture. She began her career as a dancer with performing in many New York City-based productions and international tours, and helping create movement for Nickelodeon movies, Broadway and off-Broadway shows. Nikki was the General Manager of the U.S. operation of The Aluminum Show, where she also served as Production Manager and Creative Supervisor, leading the show on major tours throughout the United States, Europe, Canada and Russia. Other experience includes: Breaking Surface – Flying Dance Theatre Over Water (Associate Producer, Artistic Consultant), GALOIS (Associate Producer). Nikki earned her BFA in Dance from The Ohio State University and was one of NYFA’s 2014 Emerging Leaders. She is also currently a candidate for her MFA in Theater Management and Producing at Columbia University, where Nikki is also a recipient of the Shubert Presidential Fellowship. This is Nikki’s second season with ZviDance. SCOTT KILLIAN (Composer) Since 1997 Scott has created over 20 works with Zvi, including the most recent--ZOOM (2011). Other on-going collaborators include Joanie Smith (Shapiro and Smith Dance) and Cherylyn Lavagnino. In addition to his extensive work in dance, Scott’s music and sound design has been heard in many NYC and regional theatres, including Manhattan Theatre Club, Red Bull heatre, MCC (Manhattan Class Co.), Berkshire Theatre Festival (Resident Composer since 1997), Shakespeare and Company, George Street Playhouse, Cleveland Playhouse, Shakespeare Theatre-Wash. D.C., Westport Playhouse, Theatre Calgary, Vancouver Playhouse, Seattle Rep, and The Huntington Theatre. MARK LONDON (Lighting Designer) continues to value his longstanding collaboration with ZviDance where he can free himself from the confines of broadcast lighting and return to his joy for lighting dance. Some of Mark’s international collaborations include Noche Flamenca De Madrid, Stars of the Bolshoi and Kirov Ballet, the Chinese Opera of Taipei and the Pokrovsky Russian folk ensemble. NY-based companies have included Jeanette Stoner, Muna Tseng, Colloquium Dance, 40Up and ISO Dance as well as theatre productions at the Public Theater and the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) among countless “more intimate” venues. Some of Mark’s notable work in broadcast includes the design of lighting systems for WNET, WNYC, CNN, Bloomberg, MSNBC, Fox and Reuters as well as overseeing production of the broadcast lighting for four of the last five Olympic Games. MARY JO MECCA (Costume Design) recently designed for Laura Peterson’s FOREVER at The Kennedy Center. New York City companies and choreographers for which she has designed include: Rashaun Mitchell Interface at Baryshnikov Arts Center and Nox at Danspace Project; Rebecca Laziers’ Coming Together/Attica (2012/2013) at the Invisible Dog and I Just Like This Music, Terminal (2009); Zvi Gotheiner’s Sky and Water at the MUSA!

The Theater Access Program is a comprehensive subsidized rental program benefiting a diverse group of dance and theater companies and producing organizations. The creation of Escher/Bacon/Rothko is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governer Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature. This project is also supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts. The company's creative process benefited greatly from a space grant at Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts, and also from a NYSCA's Long-Term creative residency at Kaatsbaan International Dance Center. #

Bryn Cohn + Artists present the world premiere of Skin, an imaginative and emotionally pioneering performance of integrated scenic design, costuming, music and highly crafted movement invention. Skin investigates how we physically and metaphorically “build” a person in a continuous cycle of creation and destruction until the most authentic self is found. Six mannequins act as six voyeurs in the space, observing the entire performance but lacking the human ability to fully participate. Through the heroic, intimate and risk-taking journey of the dancers, we strip away fabricated spectacle and seek ultimate truth in the experience of living in our own skin. Submerge into the world of Skin in a dance film here: https://vimeo.com/127791115 Directed + Choreographed by Bryn Cohn Performers: Rachel Abrahams, Mike Abbatiello, Jessica Malat, Nik Owens, Yuliya Romanskaya and Will Tomaskovic Original Score by Kevin Keller with additional artists Located off the N/R Train at 8th Street/NYU, 6 Train at Astor Place and L Train at 3rd Avenue Skin is part of Danspace Project's DANCE: Access, a self-produced series administered by Danspace Project.

Triskelion Arts Presents... Vangeline Theater WAKE UP AND SMELL THE COFFEE Butoh for Waste Prevention - Reducing Coffee Trash, An Eco-Friendly Butoh Fantasy June 26 - 27, 2015 at 8pm at Triskelion Arts’ Muriel Schulman Theater 106 Calyer Street, Brooklyn, NY 11222 (Enter on Banker Street) Tickets: $16, www.brownpapertickets.com/event/962046 In their latest work, Vangeline Theater is campaigning to raise awareness by pioneering a Green initiative called WAKE UP AND SMELL THE COFFEE, Butoh for Waste Prevention - Reducing Coffee Trash. This new dance work will incorporate a set made of 1000 used coffee cups to illustrate how much non-recyclable waste our society generates. Audiences are invited to buy reusable cups and commit to being part of a positive change for our community. This piece is a cautionary tale about global warming... coffee cups are generally coated with plastic, which makes them neither recyclable nor compostable.

Dance Company Presented in Partnership with the National Museum of Dance July 6 – 21, 2015 The World Premiere of The Long Walk Composed by Jeremy Howard Beck with libretto by Stephanie Fleischmann Directed by David Schweizer, Conducted by Steven Osgood Featuring Daniel Belcher, Heather Johnson, Caroline Worra, David Blalock, Javier Abreu, Justin Hopkins, and Donita Volkwijn July 10 – 25, 2015 Opera Saratoga announces its 2015 Summer Festival season, which will run from July 2 – July 26, 2015 at multiple venues throughout
Saratoga Springs, New York. The 2014/2015 season is the first programmatic year under the artistic and general direction of Lawrence Edelson and marks an expansion for the company in several ways: the first World Premiere presented by the company in nearly 30 years, three operas instead of two, and a longer festival season including performances at multiple venues in the region. “I am honored to have the opportunity to lead Opera Saratoga into its next chapter, and thrilled that my first season will provide opportunities for audiences to see three operas that show the breadth and depth of what is happening in opera today, with some of the foremost artists of our generation,” said Lawrence Edelson. “The season includes three operas that couldn’t be more different. La Cenerentola (Cinderella) is a bubbling comedy by Rossini that features virtuoso singing to impress the most passionate opera lovers, and is also an ideal introduction to opera for family audiences. Our presentation of Dido and Aeneas will be our first site-specific production, presented in partnership with the National Museum of Dance. Operas that prominently feature dance will be a part of our programming every season moving forward, and this particular production not only builds upon the region’s connection to dance, but also takes advantage of the stunning natural beauty of Spa State Park, where we are located. The world-premiere of The Long Walk marks a reaffirmed commitment to the inclusion of contemporary American opera as a regular part of our programming. The Company has produced 33 works by American composers in its history, 5 of which have been world premieres, but The Long Walk, by two of the most exciting writers in American opera today - composer Jeremy Howard Beck, and librettist Stephanie Fleischmann - will actually be the first world-premiere for the company in 27 years! This year, we are initiating new partnerships with a wide variety of cultural organizations throughout the region, enabling us to offer exciting new performance programs that compliment the season’s operas, which provide even more ways for audiences to connect with the company and our wonderful artists. By expanding the festival, and moving it into July, we are providing more opportunities not only for local audiences to enjoy our programs, but opportunities for audiences from around the country to enjoy the cultural riches that Saratoga Springs has to offer. With a train station in the heart of the city, and Albany airport less than 30 minutes away, we look forward to welcoming opera lovers from around the country to enjoy not only Opera Saratoga, but all of the restaurants, shops, cultural attractions, historic sites, and natural beauty that Saratoga Springs has to offer.” In tandem with the expansion of the season, the Young Artist Program – the second oldest program of its kind in the country – is being expanded to provide greater professional development opportunities for emerging professionals. The program will consist of three tiers for singers, as well as opportunities for pianists, conductors and directors, under the direction of Laurie Rogers. Opera Saratoga has selected 28 gifted artists from over 1,000 applicants from across the country, who will be in residence in Saratoga Springs this summer. A complete list of Young Artists may be found at http://www.operasaratoga.org/2015-young-artists/ OPERA SARATOGA’S 2015 SUMMER FESTIVAL PROGRAMMING LA CENERENTOLA (Cinderella) Music by Gioachino Rossini, Libretto by Jacopo Ferretti, Based on the Fairy Tale by Charles Perrault Directed by Lawrence Edelson, Conducted by Gary Thor Wedow Featuring Sandra Piques Eddy, Andrew Owens, John Brancy, David Kravitz, and Ryan Kuster Performances: Thursday, July 2, 2015 at 7:30pm; Saturday, July 11, Tuesday, July 14, and Saturday, July 18, 2015 at 2pm; Sunday, July 26, 2015 at 7:30pm Opera Saratoga opens the 2015 Summer Season with Rossini’s beloved version of Cinderella. Based on Perrault’s timeless fairytale, La Cenerentola features plenty of magical enchantment; the ridiculous, over-the-top situations and toe-tapping melodies that you expect from the master of comic Italian opera; and heartfelt emotion to bring together this story of forgiveness and true love. The ultimate rags to riches tale; it's a Cinderella story...but not quite as you may know it! Opera Saratoga is proud to present the company debuts of five extraordinary singers in La Cenerentola: Metropolitan Opera mezzo-soprano Sandra Piques Eddy sings the virtuoso title role along side tenor Andrew Owens as Prince Ramiro, baritone John Brancy as his valet Dandini, David Kravitz as her wicked step-father Don Magnifico, and Ryan Kuster as the mysterious philosopher Alidoro. Gary Thor Wedow also makes his company debut conducting this new production by Artistic and General Director Lawrence Edelson.

One of the earliest English operas, Dido and Aeneas is one of Purcell's foremost theatrical works. This heartbreaking opera recounts the love of Dido, Queen of Carthage, for the Trojan hero, Aeneas, and her despair when he abandons her. The combination of exquisite vocal music and extensive use of dance has inspired many interpretations of the great score. Opera Saratoga has invited world-renown choreographer and director Karole Armitage to create a very special site-specific production for Saratoga Springs that embraces the natural beauty and history of The National Museum of Dance located in Spa State Park. The production will feature Metropolitan Opera mezzo-soprano in her company debut Jennifer Johnson Cano as Dido, along with the exquisite dancers of the ArmitageGone!

WHERE Mark Morris Dance Center, 3 Lafayette Avenue, Brooklyn, NY WHEN on Saturday, July 11 and Sunday, July 12 WHAT auditions forThe Hard Nut and full-time company positions The Mark Morris Dance Group will hold auditions on July 11th for both male and female dancers of all ages for The Hard Nut (performances in December 2015), as well as full-time company positions. Space is limited and priority registration will be given to this year’s MMDG Summer Intensive students. Call backs will be held on July 12th. Pre-registration is required at MMDG.ORG/AUDITIONS ABOUT THE MARK MORRIS DANCE GROUP Founded in New York in 1980, the internationally-renowned Mark Morris Dance Group (MMDG) has been called “the preeminent modern dance organization of our time” (Yo-Yo Ma), receiving “highest praise for their technical aplomb, their musicality, and their sheer human authenticity.” (Bloomberg News). MMDG spent three years in residence at Brussels’ Théâtre Royal de la Monnaie as Belgium’s national dance company, returning to the United States in 1991. The Dance Group is distinguished as the only modern dance company with a commitment to live music at every performance, founding the MMDG Music Ensemble in 1996. MMDG also regularly collaborates with eminent musicians across genres, including cellist Yo-Yo Ma, mezzo-soprano Stephanie Blythe, jazz trio The Bad Plus, the London Symphony Orchestra, baroque orchestras Tafelmusik and Philharmonia Baroque, as well as opera companies such as The Metropolitan Opera and the English National Opera. Community engagement is also a vital component of the Dance Group. Through the organization’s Access/MMDG programming, it integrates opportunities for dance, music, talks, and education at its Brooklyn home, the Mark Morris Dance Center, as well as on tour around the world. “The Mark Morris Dance Group has long been ahead of all other dance companies in the flow and detail of its dancers’ response to music. And their qualities of focus, stillness, and ease are ones that most actors would envy. “ — Financial Times ABOUT THE HARD NUT The Hard Nut is a retro-modern take on the holiday favorite The Nutcracker. Morris' rendition, which has won Ovation TV's Battle of the Nutcrackers contest for three years running, transplants the story from the decorous 1890s to the swinging 1970s, a freewheeling era realized with panache and wit. Inspired by the E.T.A. Hoffmann story, Tchaikovsky's gorgeous score, and the comic book art of Charles Burns, Morris captures the beauty and tenderness of this classic while infusing it with supreme musicality and raucous humor. “Morris' choreography is formally dazzling, uproariously funny.” — San Francisco Chronicle

Named one of the nation’s “Top 25 to Watch” by Dance Magazine, Sean Dorsey Dance breaks ground with “The Missing Generation,” a dance-theater work exploring the impact of the 1980’s AIDS crisis. A powerful fusion of full-throttle dancing, luscious partnering, intimate storytelling, and highly physical theater, “The Missing Generation” features remarkable real-life stories layered with Dorsey’s writing, and a haunting original score. A moving portrait of contemporary American history that is heartbreakingly beautiful and profoundly relevant to our times.

Robert Moses’ Kin returns to Bates with “NEVABAWARLDAPECE,” (“never be a world of peace”) a full-company work of urgent, pulsing energy that explores critical moments of change in America’s liberation movements, insurrections and revolts. In a world of seemingly endless chaos and confrontation, “NEVABAWARLDAPECE” feels like a plea for a return to core principles. A collaboration with award-winning writer and performer Carl Hancock Rux; Afro-Celtic, folk-funk, hip-Appalachian vocalist Laura Love; blues musician, composer, MacArthur Fellow and Bates alum Corey Harris; and lighting and visual designer Elaine Buckholtz, this dance/spoken word/music driven tour de force packs a punch.

Their show combines the pulsating sounds of footwork, song, castanets, syncopated hand clapping and guitar for a riveting display of this true Spanish art form. This award-winning ensemble has been providing Bay Area audiences with passionate performances for 20 years, bringing artists from Spain and abroad to appear with them. Peña Pachamama is known for its Latin American, Bolivian and raw food tapas and other dishes, plus wine, beer and specialty cocktails for purchase. "Flamenco star Carolé Acuña brings the soul of Spain to San Francisco" - Peter Fish, Sunset Magazine “Lugo is a woman with complicated memories and sorrows… When she dances, she conveys depths of melancholy, devilishness or joy through the apt placement of her torso. The tilt of her ribs, for example, is just right to create that essential image of dignity, slight arrogance and emotional daring without which Flamenco is just another collection of steps and tunes. As a musician she’s equally sophisticated, inhabiting the music in the middle of every beat, with a command that is neither haughty nor proud, but self-assured, at ease. She dances the way some French cook—with what appears to be a graceful inevitability discovered on the spot." ~ Ann Murphy, Dance Critic for Dance View West Magazine "It is when Lugo and her daughter Carolé Acuña dance together that the women unearth a new dimension in dance..." ~ Ann Murphy, Oakland Tribune Best to arrive 30 minutes before show times for seating. Allow for traffic and parking which is available next door or across the street.

In 2015 we expect over 2000 people to attend our screenings, with thousands more viewing the work online in years to come via our soon-to-launch live archive. In addition, SFDFF presents lectures and screenings year-round in collaboration with respected local partners such as libraries, universities and dance schools. These outreach programs give selected filmmakers even further exposure, as they join us in bringing dance to new audiences through the accessible and portable medium of film. As fellow artists we appreciate the time and cost that went into your project and pledge to review your entry with the respect and focus it deserves. Thanks and good luck!

Closing out the 2015 season, Dana Lawton Dances returns to the choreographer's hometown of Santa Barbara, CA for two evenin gs of contemporary dance. This performance follows a run of shows in her current place of residence, her home of Oakland, CA, and a successful journey internationally to Belfast, Ireland, the birthplace of a company member. Home features new works of dance and music, some live, created specifically for the current season. Dana Lawton Dances prides itself on its collaborative efforts. Home was choreographed in partnership with local musicians, composers, designers, and visual artists. The program revolves around the central theme of “Home”, presenting contexts, relationships, and images triggering the audience about what “Home” means to each of us. A beautiful evening of contemporary dance, and storytelling awaits! Home is accessible, poignant, and finely crafted. Danced by a skilled intergenerational company at the top of their art form. Dana Lawton Dances is at it's best. Come HOME!
