CUNY Dance Initiative and John Jay College in collaboration with Mari Meade Dance Collective present the World Premiere of immigration stories at Gerald W. Lynch Theater at John Jay College, 524 W. 59th Street, NYC Friday, September 13, 2019 at 7:30pm The CUNY Dance Initiative and John Jay College, in collaboration with Mari Meade Dance Collective/MMDC, present the World Premiere of immigration stories on Friday, September 13, 2019 at 7:30pm at the Gerald W. Lynch Theater at John Jay College, 524 W. 59th Street, NYC. Tickets are $20 ($15 for students and seniors) and can be purchased online at www.bit.ly/mmdc_immigrationstories or at the door the night of the performance. immigration stories, a series of dances based on true experiences about relocating to the United States, opens up the vastly different paths people take to come this country. What began with a frustrating phone call for choreographer Mari Meade to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services has evolved into a full evening of personal stories, music and dance. From a young man who was born in Germany and lived in Ghana before making his way to New York, to a Russian woman who moved to Florida as a teenager, these individual stories expand the conversation around immigration in this highly politicized time. Weaving together interviews with original compositions by Rosana Caban, Domenico Curcio, and Eran Sabo, with additional music by Chino Amobi, immigration stories combines words and movement to question assumptions around cultural identity and what being "American" might really mean.   immigration stories is choreographed by Mari Meade with costumes by Emily Petry, and performed by Allison Beler, Breanna Gribble, Misuzu Hara, Sean Hatch, Morgan Hurst, Isaac Owens, Or Reitman, and Roza Savelyeva.    ABOUT THE ARTISTS Founded in 2009, Mari Meade Dance Collective/MMDC creates intricate, fully-formed worlds with epic, abstract narratives. Highly physical, quirky movement forms tight-knit communities of exaggerated characters who are bound to complex narrative arcs. The company is driven by Mari Meade's choreographic inspiration but is shaped by interactions with and contributions from other visual art forms. MMDC has shown work nationally and internationally. Highlights include: the Clark Theatre at Lincoln Center; Dance: Access at Danspace/St. Mark's Church (NYC); STUFFED at Judson Memorial Church (NYC); Triskelion Arts (Brooklyn); FLICfest (Brooklyn); Battery Dance Festival (NYC); New Orleans Fringe Festival (LA); Asheville Fringe Festival (NC); Baltimore Dance Invitational (MD); Katlehong Arts Center (South Africa); and Lake Studios Berlin (Germany). Mari Meade is an educator, choreographer, and the artistic director of Mari Meade Dance Collective / MMDC. Meade has received the New York Choreographic Institute (an affiliate of New York City Ballet), UNCSA Development Residency, the Kenan Fellowship at Lincoln Center Education and was an Artist in Residence at Chez Bushwick, Triskelion Arts, CUNY Dance Initiative, and Lake Studios Berlin. She has shown work at Clark Theatre at Lincoln Center; Danspace; Judson Memorial Church; Joe's Pub; Battery Dance Festival; Triskelion Arts; ChopShop: Bodies of Work (WA); New Orleans Fringe Festival; Asheville Fringe Festival; Baltimore Dance Invitational; Lake Studios Berlin; Katlehong Arts Center (South Africa). She was awarded a Brooklyn Arts Council regrant in 2010, and a "New Work" and Su Casa grant from Queens Council on the Arts in 2019. Mari Meade is also a board member of the Kenan Institute for the Arts and the associate director of the UNCSA's Choreographic Institute. She was recently commissioned by Amalgamate Dance Company, One Day Dance, and CounterPointe. She is a teaching artist for New York City Ballet and Dancing Classrooms. She is a graduate of UNC School of the Arts.    For more information, visit www.mmdcbrooklyn.com.   This project is made possible in part by the Queens Council on the Arts with public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.   MMDC's residency and performance at John Jay College is part of the CUNY Dance Initiative (CDI), a program that opens the doors of CUNY campuses to professional choreographers and dance companies. CDI receives major support from the Howard Gilman Foundation and the Mertz Gilmore Foundation. Additional support is provided by the Jerome Robbins Foundation, the SHS Foundation, the Harkness Foundation for Dance, and Dance NYC's New York City Dance Space Subsidy Program, made possible by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. CDI is spearheaded and administered by the Kupferberg Center for the Arts at Queens College.   www.cuny.edu/danceinitiative   Cultural, informational and visual arts presentations at John Jay College are made possible in part with funds allocated by Council Member Helen Rosenthal and the New York City Council.   John Jay College of Criminal Justice of The City University of New York, an international leader in educating for justice, offers a rich liberal arts and professional studies curriculum to upwards of 15,000 undergraduate and graduate students from more than 135 nations.

Heralded by Lynn Garafola in Dance Magazine as a choreographer with "a personal vision...classical because it is rooted in metaphor and symbolic language [and] populist because of its legibility and broad cultural resonance," Patrelle has also cultivated a long-time collaboration with composer Patrick Soluri, commissioning four original scores including 2009's Murder at the Masque for dP's 20th Anniversary. Known for attracting the great talent of each generation, Dances Patrelle is pleased to count ballet stars such as Marcelo Gomes, Jenifer Ringer, Donald Williams, Lourdes Lopez, and Cynthia Gregory among its dancers. For 25 seasons, Dances Patrelle has tapped into the human experience, connecting intimately with the audience and continuously reinventing dramatic dance. In 2013, the company was named the resident ballet company of the Kaatsbaan International Dance Center. "In Francis Patrelle's ballets, the characters come alive. His choreography is full of heart and soul."  - Cynthia Gregory, Prima Ballerina For more information, visit www.dancespatrelle.org.

Emily Johnson/Catalyst Then a Cunning Voice and A Night We Spend Gazing at Stars All Night Performance September 28-29, 2019 5:00 p.m. - 8:00 a.m. Calumet Park, Chicago FREE parking at the event 
"It’s a sleepover to beat all sleepovers.” -New York Times Then a Cunning Voice and A Night We Spend Gazing at Stars weaves together stories and performance with the exchange of ideas, the sharing of food, and the endurance of spending a night together outside under the stars and sky at Calumet Park. Beginning at dusk and continuing until sunrise, Then a Cunning Voice invites audience members into a multilayered, participatory work that focuses attention on the space we share and on envisioning the future. Throughout the night, audience members are guided through a series of richly crafted events—part ritual, part lyrical adventure—created by Johnson in collaboration with performers Tania Isaac and 14-year-old Georgia Lucas. The performance begins with an opening ceremony and a group walk that arrives at the shores of Lake Michigan and unfolds on 4,000 square feet of quilts. Designed by textile artist Maggie Thompson, each quilt has been hand-made by volunteers at community sewing bees. The quilts serve as audience seating, performance area, resting area, and “home” for the duration of the performance. The performance includes supper, breakfast, and snacks. The night creates space for connection. It is celebratory, to come together like this. Join us around the campfire and under the stars.

"Thoughts & Prayers" is a new dance-theatre work with a palpable activist heart. Through a gripping exploration of America’s relationship with tragedy, catastrophe, and loss, this thought-provoking world premiere aims to harness the power of hope, individual action, and a call for change. Following each show, audience members and community activists are invited to discuss the next steps to create change. Through this new dance-theatre concerto of equal parts music, movement, and theatre, we take a journey with Dana and Felix, as the couple experiences five Disasters. In a dramatic mix of original, virtuosic music, partnering, dialogue, and unique staging, six musicians (woodwinds and strings) are active participants in the performance. embody two distinct Greek Choruses: Congress and The Activists, giving full voice to the political clashes of present-day. This collaboration between artists of completely different disciplines creates a complex, elegant, disruptive world brought to life by creator/director Lauren Hlubny and composer/performer Thomas Giles.

The NC Dance Festival brings professional modern dance choreographers from across the state together to share innovative and moving dance works. NCDF is celebrating its 29th season with shows in traditional and non-traditional venues across NC. Energetic, unexpected, powerful, and joyous, the concert presents a wide variety of NC dance. In Asheville, Vania Claiborne (Burlington) presents “(Bro)tha/Brother”, a duet for two men that celebrates and explores black male joy, friendship, and humanity. In Studio C Project’s (Durham) atmospheric “Two,” three dancers follow two sets of movement instructions that test the accuracy of memory in response to a shifting environment. MARO Movement (Southern Pines) explores the sometimes taboo topic of mortality and vulnerability with “Impact,” inspired by choreographer Matthew Rock’s late grandmother. The multigenerational dancers of Durham’s Big Red Dance Project, ranging in age from 38-78 and directed by Gerri Houlihan, reveal the melodic and rhythmic complexities of J.S. Bach’s Violin Concerto in A Minor in “Dances for the Time Being.” Wilmington’s Alyona Amato presents “It’s All About Me,” an ensemble dance that combines video and movement to capture the sense of competition and self-centeredness that can characterize our modern culture. Local Asheville company Stewart/Owen presents an excerpt of a new theatrical work that broadly speaks to power, control, vulnerability, and how human beings manifest each of those qualities and surrender to them.

With AscenDance Project, founder and artistic director Isabel von Rittberg gives birth to a new genre of dance that fuses rock climbing, music and choreography performed on a vertical wall. Without ropes or suspension, dancers use sheer strength to overcome gravity with grace, beauty and artistic prowess. AscenDance Project’s performance is centered around the idea that while contemporary political zeitgeist suggests walls are necessary to separate those of differing backgrounds or ideologies, this wall is designed to inspire connection and hope. Von Rittberg believes that we create the world we live in. She dreams of a new world, where we dance on the walls that divide us. Her choreography is inspired by an impactful selection of music. Each piece tells stories of struggle, hardship and solitude that eventually melt into connection, love and trust. Each piece builds to the final dance featuring all performers on the wall.

BALLET HISPÁNICO  in collaboration with THE APOLLO THEATER presents The World Premiere of  Annabelle Lopez Ochoa's Tiburones A Restaging of Nací by Andrea Miller Con Brazos Abiertos by Michelle Manzanales November 22-23, 2019 at 8:00pm Ballet Hispánico, the nation's premier Latino dance organization, returns to the Apollo stage on Friday and Saturday, November 22 and 23, 2019 at 8:00pm with a program that continues its commitment to staging works by female, Latinx choreographers. Ballet Hispánico is sponsored by GOYA, which has sponsored the company since 1977.    In the World Premiere of Tiburones, Anabelle Lopez Ochoa reimagines the world of the street gang, The Sharks (from the award-winning musical West Side Story) from a Latinx and gender fluid perspective. Ochoa will embrace non-gender specific roles while deconstructing stereotypes and giving new life to an ever appropriated cultural icon.   In this restaging of Nací (2009), choreographer Andrea Miller draws from the duality of her Spanish and Jewish-American background and employs her distinctive movement style to investigate the Sephardic culture of Spain, with its Moorish influence and profound sense of community, despite hardship.   Con Brazos Abiertos (2017) is a fun and frank look at life caught between two cultures. Michelle Manzanales utilizes iconic Mexican symbols that she was reluctant to embrace as a Mexican-American child growing up in Texas, to speak to the immigrant experience. Intertwining folkloric representations with humor and music that ranges from Julio Iglesias to Rock en Español, the work brings life to a Latino dilemma. "We are thrilled to bring the World Premiere of Annabelle Lopez Ochoa's Tiburones to the Apollo Theater. Ballet Hispánico is dedicated to providing arts programming that is accessible to community members of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds and we are grateful for this continued partnership with the Apollo, allowing us another opportunity to elevate the voices of Latinx and female artists,"said Artistic Director & CEO Eduardo Vilaro. "Our collaboration with Ballet Hispánico not only speaks to the importance of presenting such vital works in Harlem, but also speaks to the Apollo's mission of continuing to create a 21st century performing arts canon. We want to not only commission and present a myriad of new multidisciplinary works, but also continue being a home for cultural innovators such as Ballet Hispánico," said Kamilah Forbes, the Apollo's Executive Producer. "We are proud to support the work and talent of Ballet Hispánico because we value organizations who bring together communities of all cultures and ages through the beauty and passion of their art form," said Rafael Toro, Director of Public Relations of GOYA Foods.   Artistic Director & CEO: Eduardo Vilaro Rehearsal Director: Johan Rivera Choreographers: Annabelle Lopez Ochoa, Andrea Miller, and Michelle Manzanales Dancers: the Ballet Hispánico Company; Simone Cameresi, Shelby Colona, Laura Lopez, Geena Pacareu, Gabrielle Sprauve, Dandara Veiga, Melissa Verdecia, Lenai Wilkerson, Christopher Bloom, Jared Bogart, Antonio Cangiano, Paulo Gutierrez, Paulo Hernandez, Omar Rivera, and Lyvan Verdecia   Tickets begin at $10 and will be available for purchase starting August 22, 2019.

Annabelle is the recipient of the Jacob's Pillow Dance Award 2019.   Andrea Miller is Artistic Director and choreographer of Brooklyn-based company, Gallim, and has established herself as a perpetually groundbreaking artist. A sought-after creator and collaborator in dance, art, film, theater, tech, and fashion, Miller was named 2017/2018 Artist in Residence at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and in October 2018, she was featured in Forbes as a female entrepreneur and leader in the dance world.
