(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.

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.

LEIMAY Ludus Lab with butoh dancer Mari Osanai This LEIMAY Ludus Lab with guest dancer Mari Osanai is divided in three different modules: 1) Introduction to Noguchi Taizo Part One, 2) Noguchi Taizo Part Two, and 3) Movement Creation and Structure. Modules can be taken separately or together. However early registration and discounts are only open to those who plan on taking all the modules. This LEIMAY Ludus Lab is open to dancers, body-rooted performers, physical actors of all levels, ages, and capabilities. Within the whole duration of this LEIMAY Ludus Lab participants will explore fundamental elements of Noguchi Taizo (Noguchi Gymnastics). During the third module under the guidance of Osanai, participants will work on the creation of short individual and group pieces. Noguchi Taizo (Noguchi Gymnastics) was created in Japan by Michizo Noguchi (1914-1998) during the same period as butoh was being developed by Tatsumi Hijikata and Kazuo Ohno. The aim is to develop the uniqueness of each individual movement and to relieve any undue strain. Taizo means ‘gym’ in Japanese, but not in the conventional sense. As Osanai explains, “This technique has nothing to do with the swelling of the muscles nor resistance forces. The body learns to move in a certain way but is loose and fluid. It becomes soft and flexible as it uses its own weight to be moved.” These modules will allow participants to experience Mari’s unique approach to dance and understanding of Noguchi Taizo, and to discover their own individual and unique approach to movement creation. Dates: January 28th - February 8th Detailed Schedule: Module 1: Introduction to Noguchi Taizo Part 1: Jan 28, 29, 30 (Wednesday, Thursday, Friday) 6:00PM - 10:00PM Module 2: Introduction to Noguchi Taizo Part 2: Feb 1, 2, 3 (Sunday, Monday, Tuesday) 10:00AM - 2:00PM Module 3: Creating your own Movement: Feb 5, 6, 7, 8, (Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday) 6:00PM - 10:00PM Price: Full course - $580, Module 1 - $198, Module 2 $198, Module 3 $264 Pre-registration is required Members’ discounts and other discounts valid for online payment only http://leimaymain.cavearts.org/?p=3119

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.

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, ease are ones that most actors would envy. “ — Alastair Macaulay, Financial Times (U.K.) AARON LOUX Aaron Loux grew up in Seattle, Washington, and began dancing at the Creative Dance Center as a member of Kaleidoscope, a youth modern dance company.

Choreographed, written and directed by Roussève, Stardust relates the travails of Junior, a gay disenfranchised African-American teenager. Described as “a coming of age story for the Twitter generation,” the work allows the audience to meet Junior only through his confessional text messages, projected on a screen by Roussève’s longtime collaborator Cari Ann Shim Sham, amidst glorious and pain-wrenching dance from African-American choreographer Roussève’s 10-person company REALITY. The sound score juxtaposes the intimate romanticism of Nat King Cole standards with the rough-edged, hip-hop-inflected original music of d. Sabela Grimes. Contains mature content.

Please visit triskelionarts.org for updated information. TICKETS: $16 -- www.brownpapertickets.com/event/875980 Triskelion Arts is pleased to present a shared program featuring innovative choreographers, Adriane Lee and Kathy Wasik, this February in the Muriel Schulman Theater. Simultaneous structures of broad generalization and acute detail are built and destroyed in Adriane Lee’s latest work. Convoluted psychologies are layered with a distanced observation of what simply is. Dancers Rebecca Arends, Kyle Gerry, and Pareena Lim forge a pre-technological and possibly pre-verbal moment of sensorial experience. Join Kathy Wasik in an archaeological dig, an excavation of the dancers’ movement histories. As Faux Fur uncovers kinesthetic, manneristic, and emotional layers, it demonstrates that certain structures have persisted over time. So, how does this persistence connect to the ephemerality of dance? Do certain movements prevail while others dissipate? What is passed from dancer to audience member? What might remain after the dancers exit the stage? Wasik is interested in a logic of feeling and the paradoxical nature of such an idea. Her dances emerge from an emotional yet mathematical place, one both messy and precise. Faux Fur charts a complicated path between movements as disparate as the pas de bourrée and the Electric Slide. Wasik’s attempts to reconcile her performers’ distinct dance histories results in complicated questions about the nature of unison dancing. How different can two movements be and still be perceived as synchronized? How do separate entities mix and come apart again? What points exist between these two extremes? Performed by Alessandra Larson and Kathy Wasik, with an original sound score by Ethan Frederick Greene and lighting design by Andrew Dickerson. More Info: www.triskelionarts.org

Douglas Dunn & Dancers presents the World Premiere of Aidos at Brooklyn Academy of Music, BAM Fisher, 321 Ashland Place, Brooklyn, NY, from February 11-15, 2015. Performances: Wed-Sat at 8pm, Sat & Sun at 3pm. Tickets are $20 and are available at www.brownpapertickets.com/event/1040421, by phone at (866) 620-7509 or in person at the BAM box office during the week of the show from noon to show time. Aidos, a new work by Douglas Dunn, features dancing by Dunn himself, Jules Bakshi, Alexandra Berger, Emily Pope-Blackman, Jin Ju Song-Begin, Jessica Martineau, Paul Singh, Jake Szczypek, and Timothy Ward to Bach Cello Suites performed live by Ha-Yang Kim, with design by Andrew Jordan and lighting design by Carol Mullins. Though highly stylized and elegant, as is typical of Dunn’s work, the piece allows Aidos, the Greek goddess of shame, to appear as a split personality danced by two six-foot tall women, Jin Ju Song-Begin and Jessica Martineau. Their ongoing duel, juxtaposed against six more affiliated dancers, is the focal point of the general suggestion of dance display as inherently embarrassing. The beauty of the Bach Suites played live by Ha-Yang Kim and the sleek black and gold costumes by Andrew Jordan keep the mordant theme from shredding the luxuriant texture of the hour-long dance. Douglas Dunn began presenting work in New York City in 1971. In 1976 he formed Douglas Dunn & Dancers and began touring the U.S. and Europe. In 1980 the Paris Opera and the Autumn Festival invited him to set Stravinsky's Pulcinella on the Paris Opera Ballet. He has collaborated on film and video-dances with Charles Atlas and Rudy Burckhardt. He works with visual artists (Mimi Gross, David Ireland, Uli Gassmann, Jeffrey Schiff), composers (Joshua Fried, Bill Cole, Eliane Radigue, Alvin Lucier, Robert Ashley, Linda Fisher, John Driscoll, Ron Kuivila), poets (Anne Waldman, Reed Bye, Ruth Margraff), and lighting designer Carol Mullins, to present a multifaceted dance image. Dunn has received funds for his work from the New York State Council on the Arts, the National Endowment for the Arts, the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation, the Foundation for Contemporary Performance Arts, and other sources. In 1998 he received a New York Dance and Performance (Bessie) Award for Sustained Achievement. Douglas Dunn has been dancing and making dances for forty-three years. He likes to collaborate with poets, painters, sculptors, musicians, composers and playwrights to offer a multifaceted theatrical experience. He has set pieces for many companies besides his own, including the Paris Opera Ballet, and has composed numerous outdoor and site-specific events. He is renowned as a teacher of Technique and of Open Structures, with a long tenure at NYU's Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development. Awards include a Guggenheim, a Bessie, and Chevalier in the Ordres des Arts et des Lettres. Douglas produces Salons at his studio in Soho, and is a Board Member Emeritus of Danspace Project/St. Mark's Church. In 2012 his collected writings, available via Amazon.com, were published under the title Dancer Out of Sight. For more information about Douglas Dunn & Dancers, visit www.douglasdunndance.com.

TICKETS: $16 -- www.brownpapertickets.com/event/876031 It warms the very cockles of Triskelion Arts' heart to present Red Gloves (Billy Schultz) and Josselyn Levinson (of Tough Cookie Dance) hand-in-hand for this shared program in honor of Valentine's Day! The two flirtatious companies fabulously confabulate on romance this February in the Muriel Schulman Theater in a darling evening of dance, chemistry, crying, and chocolate. About the Work Red Gloves takes on Love! With the death of St. Cupid, what will become of hopeless romantic Flannery O'Mally? What will become of her sensitive and desirous heart? Featuring The Ultimate Man, the great Young BeGrown, Diva Delirium, and the Valentine's Day Ninja. With St. Cupid dead, what's the power of love? The Red Gloves' theatrical hijinks combine the rigor of dance, the expressiveness of theater, and an indulgent sense of humor that pulls no punches but are sure to pull on your heartstrings. Josselyn Levinson, of Tough Cookie Dance, shares her privates in a new group, dance-theater piece, love letters: Dear you, We had a great time. I felt things. You felt things, too... I think. I'm not sure. It's not you, its me. Totally me. I mean it's obviously you, but mostly me, Timing or something. Well, it's Valentines Day and I was thinking we could see where this goes. I have a new dress and you though about combing your hair so why not? I'll bring the wine if you bring a topic of intense meaningful conversation. We can dance and talk, but mostly dance and possibly listen to some music that makes us lonely and hopeful and have butterfly bellies. I had this idea that we would fall in love and then break up and then get back together and then… well, you know… and then gaze at each other from a distance. I will be, or appear to be, drunk you can join too, if you like. You can bring me a Whitman's sampler and I will bring protection… literally and figuratively. I love you (if that's ok with you.) XOXO, Me

A BAILAR: DANCE AT THE CENTER [Special Events]

Contact:



New York City Center will present A Bailar: Dance at the Center, a three-week Latin dance festival featuring three acclaimed dance companies from Cuba, Argentina and Spain, running February 18 – March 7, 2015. The Festival kicks off with the U.S. debut of Havana Rakatan, a celebration of Cuban dance and music, and continues with Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui’s m¡longa, which captures the sultry world of Buenos Aires tango. Voces, Suite Flamenca, a new work from flamenco superstar Sara Baras, closes A Bailar. The Festival’s many free pre-show events include dance lessons and discussion panels that will explore Latin culture through a variety of lenses. Havana Rakatan February 18 – 22, 2015 Performing for the first time in the United States, Havana Rakatan explores the roots of Cuban music and dance, a unique fusion of Spanish culture and African spiritual beliefs, accompanied by the son band Turquino. Flamenco, Yoruba and Afro-Haitian rhythms, as well as jazz, mambo, and son, give way to the modern forms of salsa that originated in the early twentieth-century salon dances. Havana Rakatan made its hugely successful debut in 2007 at the Peacock Theatre in London and has since toured all over the world. Cuban choreographer Nilda Guerra directs a talented and versatile company of dancers, most of whom are graduates of the renowned Escuela Nacional de Arte de la Habana, which combines contemporary dance training with Cuban dance and Latin styles. Havana Rakatan also features the eight-piece Cuban band Turquino, which performs live onstage. Havana Rakatan is presented by New York City Center in association with Sadler’s Wells and Congas Productions. m¡longa February 26 – March 1, 2015 Deeply rooted in Argentinean culture, tango has fascinated and captivated the world with its sensuality, power and beauty. In m¡longa, celebrated contemporary choreographer Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui takes the m¡longa—a social dance evening held in Buenos Aires’ intimate late-night bars—as a starting point and adds a contemporary twist. The production features ten tango dancers, two contemporary dancers, and an Argentinean tango band of five musicians. New York City Center presents Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui’s m¡longa, a Sadler’s Wells production. Ballet Flamenco Sara Baras: Voces, Suite Flamenca March 4 – 7, 2015 Ballet Flamenco Sara Baras’ Voces, Suite Flamenca captures the emotion, drama and passion of traditional flamenco with a vibrant contemporary edge. Celebrated for her brilliant footwork and captivating stage presence, Baras has become internationally famous in a career that has spanned more than 20 years and earned her dozens of prestigious dance awards. Baras is joined onstage by her company of 15 dancers, including guest artist José Serrano, and eight flamenco musicians. Voces, Suite Flamenca is presented by New York City Center and Flamenco Festival. New York City Center (Arlene Shuler, President & CEO) has played a defining role in the cultural life of the city since 1943. It was Manhattan’s first performing arts center, dedicated by Mayor Fiorello La Guardia with a mission to make the best in music, theater and dance accessible to all audiences. Today, City Center is home to many distinguished companies, including Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, City Center’s Principal Dance Company, as well as Manhattan Theatre Club; a roster of renowned national and international visiting artists; and its own critically acclaimed and popular programs. The Tony-honored Encores! musical theater series has been hailed as “one of the very best reasons to be alive in New York.” In summer 2013, City Center launched Encores! Off-Center, a new series featuring landmark Off-Broadway musicals filtered through the lens of today’s most innovative artists. Dance has been integral to the theater’s mission from the start, and dance programs, including the annual Fall for Dance Festival, remain central to City Center’s identity. Vital partnerships with arts organizations including Jazz at Lincoln Center and London’s Sadler’s Wells Theatre enhance City Center’s programmatic offerings. City Center is dedicated to providing educational opportunities to New York City students and teachers with programs such as Encores! In Schools and the Young People’s Dance Series. Special workshops cater to families, seniors, and other groups, while events such as the Fall for Dance DanceTalk series offer learning opportunities for the general public. In October 2011, City Center completed an extensive renovation project to revitalize and modernize its historic theater. Havana Rakatan will play seven performances, February 18-22, as follows: Wednesday, February 18 and Thursday, February 19 at 7:30 pm, Friday, February 20 at 8 pm, Saturday, February 21 at 2 and 8 pm, and Sunday, February 22 at 2 and 7 pm. m¡longa will play four performances, February 26 – March 22, as follows: Thursday, February 26, Friday, February 27, and Saturday, February 28, at 8 pm, and Sunday, March 1, at 2 pm. February 26 – 28 at Saturday at 8 pm, Sunday, March 1 at 2 pm. Ballet Flamenco Sara Baras will play four performances, March 4-7, as follows: Wednesday, March 4 and Thursday, March 5 at 7:30 pm, and Friday, March 6 and Saturday, March 7 at 8 pm. Tickets start at $25 and can be purchased online at www.NYCityCenter.org, by calling CityTix® at (212) 581-1212, or at the City Center Box Office at 131 W. 55th St. (between 6th & 7th Aves).

The acclaimed Cuban dance company Ballet Rakatan will make its U.S. debut at New York City Center, February 18 – 22, presenting Havana Rakatan, a dazzling mix of salsa, mambo, jazz, bolero, son, cha-cha-cha and rumba, accompanied by the eight-piece Cuban son band Turquino, which will perform live onstage. Havana Rakatan is a high-energy slice of Havana culture that charts the evolution of Cuban music and dance over the country’s 500-year history, from the West African rhythms brought by slaves beginning in the mid-16th century, to the jazz, mambo and bolero of the 1940s, the rumba and cha-cha of the 1970s, and the salsa and son of modern-day Havana. Today’s son music, a combination of elements of Spanish guitar and song with African rhythms and percussion, is the heart of modern music and dance. Ballet Rakatan is one of Cuba's most successful cultural exports. The company was founded by dancer- turned-choreographer Nilda Guerra in 2001, when she was just 24. Havana Rakatan made its hugely successful debut in 2007 at the Peacock Theatre in London and has since toured all over the world. Nilda Guerra directs a versatile company of dancers, most of whom are graduates of the renowned Escuela Nacional de Arte de la Habana, which combines contemporary dance training with Cuban dance and Latin styles.

Benefit tickets are $200 (includes reception and one ticket to an NYTB at NYLA performance of your choice). RSVP for benefit tickets by February 1st via email: admin@nytb.org or via phone 212-679-0401. New York Theatre Ballet will present four ballets in an unforgettable evening. The program will include two world premieres by Nicolo Fonte and Pam Tanowitz. Nicolo Fonte is choreographing There, And Back Again, a 20-minute piece for four dancers inspired by the Brothers Grimm classic story “Hansel & Gretel” in a wholly contemporary esthetic, performed to a new score composed by Kevin Keller for piano and violin. Pam Tanowitz will create One Plus One, a new 13-minute ballet for ten dancers set to the Andante movement of Beethoven’s Sonata in D Major #15, which will be played live on piano two times at different tempos. The dance is based on the “pas de deux” and will be used as a metaphor for the age-old notion of unrequited love. The company will also revive Merce Cunningham’s trio Cross Currents, staged by Jennifer Goggans, performed to an arrangement by John Cage of Conlon Nancarrow’s Rhythm Studies for Player Piano Nos. 1-6. The evening is completed by a revival of Keith Michael’s The Alice-In-Wonderland Follies, which Broadway World called “A fantastic production…there is no more delightful or charming production to be found in New York City.”

TICKETS: $16 PURCHASE: http://wrdm2015.brownpapertickets.com/ “Leave space for the unexpected.” Triskelion Arts is pleased to present white road Dance Media’s latest work, NEON BRAVE, challenging the idea of the traditional performance “run”. This full-length work will be presented once a week over the course of three weeks at Triskelion Arts in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. NEON BRAVE is a work fixed on courage and brightness of being, investigating both the consequences of libertine actions and the strength needed to move forward. Can you accept your history and its consequences, your restlessness and driving desire to be more than the sum of your parts? Can you become the most powerful core version of yourself - locate and electrify your own neon bravery? A quartet of fearless women investigates these questions in real time, allowing them to become alternately entangled and interreliant, empowered and individualized. The production was created in collaboration with sound designer Chad Raines, who composed the original score. This performance contains nudity and images that may not be suitable for young children. Created by Marisa Gruneberg Original score by Chad Raines Performed by Sammy Donahue, Sydnie Liggett, Miranda Lyon and Alexandra Taylor Lighting by Andrew Dickerson Costumes by Joey Blaha This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council. Created under the auspices of the Triskelion Arts Space Subsidy Program, made possible with support from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Additional support for the creation of NEON BRAVE was provided by DanceNOW/Silo.

TICKETS: $16 PURCHASE: http://tsd2015.brownpapertickets.com/ Triskelion Arts is pleased to present Tami Stronach Dance’s latest evening-length work this February in the Muriel Schulman Theater. Around The Bend is a workshop performance that exists somewhere between a dance-theater piece, a guided conversation, and a celebration. This new work asks us to consider what it means to be in the middle of something: a life, a career, a love triangle, a movement… and a creative process. Stronach gives form to the potent emotions of anticipation, regret, and hope that accompany not knowing how something will end. A stellar design team and cast of performers join her in exploring how the past intrudes on the present, how expectations impact unfolding information, and how we can stay open to risk even as we have more to lose. The audience is invited to stay after the performance to discuss the material, to ruminate on what being in the middle means to them, and to revisit sections of the dance to foster genuine exchange. “Sublime beauty… images of extraordinary, even alarming power.” - Eva Yaa Asantewaa This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, and from the Decentralization Program of the New York State Council on the Arts, administered in Kings County by Brooklyn Arts Council (BAC).

Quentin Burley Dance Group premieres two new works. A solo performed by Quentin Burley investigates the small, understated bodily quirks that sway social interaction. Filled with flourished movement and intimate expression, this solo investigates self-awareness and challenges tropes of performance. Also premiering is a trio performed by Myssi Robinson, Emma Rumberg, and Lynda Senisi exploring intricacy in dynamic movement. Set to a vast backdrop of music, this analytical piece examines highly physical movement and the ability of sound to dramatically change context and meaning. Danté Brown/Warehouse Dance presents Soapbox, examining what it means to “have a voice” and its association with power. Focusing on augmenting the bodily languages of American politicians and popular music artists, Soapbox questions who is allowed on these platforms of power and examines how we, as a culture, respond.

At most theatrical performances, audience members are asked to put their cell phones away. But at a show that will open at St. Olaf College in March, audience members will be asked to take their cell phones out — and use them to control the movements of dancers. Theatre Engine is a multi-media performance event that combines live dance, electronic music, computer programming, and smartphone technology. Housed at Michigan State University, the project has drawn together experts from around the country to create a performance that incorporates — indeed, relies upon — the mobile devices that nearly every audience member carries in his or her pocket. "We live in this very interactive world, and what we wanted to do is find a way to use that same technology we use for video games in a live performance," says Todd Edwards, the designer and technical director for the St. Olaf Theater Department and one of the experts who began working with the Theatre Engine project two years ago. As the project got off the ground, Edwards asked the St. Olaf Dance Department to get involved. This fall Artist in Residence in Dance Anthony Roberts worked to prepare 15 first-year students to perform in Theatre Engine when it comes to campus. "Collaborating with graduate students and faculty from other schools has been a great experience for our students," Roberts says. "They're learning how to be creative, and how to think, move, act, and respond in the moment." After its initial performances at Michigan State, Theatre Engine will travel to St. Olaf. It will then continue on to Brigham Young University. And at each stop — in fact, at each performance — audience members will see something entirely unique. How it works Using an app developed by computer scientists at Michigan State, audience members will have a small avatar of a performer on their smartphone. If the avatar is wearing a green costume, then that audience member controls the performer wearing a green costume. As audience members move their phone, the computer program takes the GPS/accelerator data from the device to a server. There the program translates that into audio cues for the performers, who translate them into various moves. "It gives the performers a lot of creative interpretation," Edwards says. As the performance evolves, the app invites audience members to take a more active role in the performance, such as change the lighting, make sound, strike a pose. Through all of it, a composer will be creating a computer-generated soundscape, in real time, to match what is evolving with the performance. As audience members become more involved in the piece, Roberts says, there's a subtle shift. They have gone from being the "controllers" of the dancers to being invited into the piece. As the environment evolves, the cues get more cryptic. "The idea is that we get them to the point that the phone is set down and they are brought into the space," Edwards says. That, he says, is perhaps the most significant hurdle that smartphones present. "One of the biggest challenges the piece has is treading the line between being in the moment and not in the technology, with heads down staring at screens," Edwards says. An evolving performance The goal is that by the time Theatre Engine leaves St. Olaf, the performance will contain elements it didn't have when it arrived from Michigan State. Each institution will continue to build on the piece by reacting to the actions of audience members, Edwards says. "There's no completion, no 'finish' to this piece," he says. Yet he notes that after seeing a few trial runs of Theatre Engine in Michigan, he's mesmerized by the possibilities. "We saw everyone from little kids to elderly adults participating," he says. Although the audience will eventually be drawn into the piece, the initial performers will be the first-year dancers taught by Roberts. Both Roberts and Edwards say they hope this project has shown the students the importance of play and the reward of taking chances. Christy Dobbratz '18 has enjoyed the cross-department collaboration of this project and the opportunity to explore the innovative side of dance. "It has been interesting to explore my own capacity to work on the fly and develop my improv skills," Dobbratz says. "I am a little nervous for the performance, but as long as we as dancers keep an open mind and give it our best shot, the audience will enjoy it." Cosimo Pori '18 says despite the ubiquity of smartphones, he had never considered using technology to literally control dancers. Such a complex concept is exciting to participate in, he says, and has provided a valuable lesson in teamwork and trust. "It is exhilarating to be a part of a project that is taking audience participation and interactivity to an entirely new level," he adds. Theatre Engine performs at the Wagner Bundgaard Dance Studio One in Dittmann Center on Saturday, March 7, at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. and on Sunday, March 8, at 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. The performances are free and open to the public, with general seating and no ticket required.

The School of American Ballet (SAB) announces the 2015 Winter Ball at Lincoln Center’s David H. Koch Theater on Monday, March 9, 2015, sponsored by legendary French jewelry Maison, Van Cleef & Arpels for the eighth consecutive year. To purchase tickets, a table, or for more information, contact the Special Events Office at (212) 769-6636. An annual event, the Winter Ball is a glamorous, black-tie dinner dance attended by more than 500 patrons, including the School’s board members and alumni as well as leaders from the New York corporate and social communities. A highlight of the evening is a performance by the advanced students of The School of American Ballet created specifically for the event. This year, New York City Ballet dancer Peter Walker was selected as choreographer by Peter Martins, Artistic Director and Chairman of Faculty for SAB. The proceeds from the event enhance every aspect of the School’s extraordinary ballet training program, helping to provide more than $1.9 million annually in student scholarships, as well as supporting faculty, maintaining world-class studios and offering vital student programs beyond the classroom. This year’s Winter Ball will celebrate SAB co-founder George Balanchine’s affinity for the unique spirit and energy of America. Ron Wendt will take inspiration from the influences of the Pop Art era and 70’s revival using color and whimsy to create a fun and festive atmosphere on the David H. Koch Theater’s promenade level. Famed French jewelry Maison, Van Cleef & Arpels, will again act as the lead corporate sponsor for the gala. This long-standing partnership is a tribute to the friendship shared between SAB founder, George Balanchine, and one of the Van Cleef & Arpels founding brothers, Claude Arpels, who established the Maison in New York in 1939. From their shared passion for exceptional stones was born an artistic relationship that resulted in Balanchine’s ‘Jewels’ ballet and its sumptuous costumes. The event is led by Chairmen Joyce Giuffra, Julia Koch, Serena Lese, and Laura Zeckendorf; and Young Patron Chairmen Noreen K. Ahmad, Amanda Brotman and Lesley Vecsler. 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. ABOUT VAN CLEEF & ARPELS Van Cleef & Arpels was born in Paris’ Place Vendôme in 1906, following Alfred Van Cleef’s marriage to Estelle Arpels in 1895. Always striving for excellence, the Maison has become a worldwide reference through its unique designs, its choice of exceptional stones and its virtuoso craftsmanship, offering jewels and timepieces that tell stories and bring enchantment to life. Over the years, the Maison has remained faithful to this highly distinctive style characterized by creativity, refinement and poetry. Whether inspired by nature, couture or the imagination, its collections evoke a timeless world of harmony and beauty. Peter Walker hails from Fort Myers, Florida, where he began his early dance training at age eight. He attended the School of American Ballet during the 2006 and 2007 summer courses and enrolled as a full-time student in the winter of 2007. Peter honed his choreographic skills by participating in SAB’s annual Student Choreography Workshop; and in 2011, 2012 and 2014, he was selected by Peter Martins to choreograph the Summer Session of the New York Choreographic Institute. He was a recipient of SAB’s 2011 Mae L. Wien Award for Outstanding Promise and became an apprentice with New York City Ballet. He joined the Company as a member of the corps de ballet in fall 2012.

Renewal is an evening-length work that unpacks the state of being made new, fresh, or strong again – dramatizing how we re-invent ourselves again and again over time. Renewal will be composed of a series of shorts that shift the physical and visceral present movement, re-starting, reclaiming, and revitalizing our experience of it. Each short will highlight signature structures and elements in Selwyn’s style including gesture, partnering, virtuosic artistry juxtaposed with pedestrian movement, humor, character, and theatricality. With Selwyn’s fresh and vibrant movement language of extended limbs, physical risk, athleticism, energy, release, touch, and balance, she will activate emotional expression and offer many in-roads for audiences to make meaning for themselves. “Amanda Selwyn is a master at illustrating the symbiosis of sound and movement, the romance of motion and emotion – she had me laughing, crying, cringing and gasping all in the short 55-minute production.” - Inside New York

 “Amanda Selwyn’s work is masterly and emotionally expressive, she is truly gifted in the art of dance making.” - NYC Dance Stuff Dancers: Sarah Buscaino, Adam Robert Dickerson, Jenny Gillan (rehearsal director), Manon Hallay (apprentice), Gildas Lemonnier, Louie Marin, Torrey McAnena, Robert Moore, Emily Pacilio, Randall Smith, Sarah Starkweather.

Tickets are now on sale for Gotham Chamber Opera’s final production of the 2014/2015 season, The Tempest Songbook, comprised of incidental music for The Tempest composed in 1695 and attributed to Henry Purcell and Kaija Saariaho’s 2004 Tempest Songbook for soprano, baritone and period instrument ensemble, in its U.S. and World Stage Premieres. A co-production with The Martha Graham Dance Company, The Tempest Songbook will be performed in The Grace Rainey Rogers Auditorium at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, with three performances from March 27 – 29, 2015. Performances: Friday and Saturday at 7pm, Sunday at 3pm. Tickets range from $30 to $175 and are available at metmuseum.org/tickets. The Tempest Songbook will explore the themes of William Shakespeare’s The Tempest through dance, movement and song. The singers and dancers will express the words and actions of various characters, resulting in a lyrical vision of Shakespeare’s play. The production is also notable for the video creation of celebrated multimedia artist Jean-Baptiste Barrière. “I am thrilled to be invited to share my vision for The Tempest Songbook with Gotham Chamber Opera,” said director and choreographer Luca Veggetti. “Through my association with Kaija Saariaho, I became acquainted with her Tempest Songbook and her suggested pairings with Purcell, which serves as the starting point for the production.” “Last season’s production of The Raven, conceived by Luca Veggetti, was a tremendous success,” said Neal Goren, artistic director of Gotham Chamber Opera. “We are eager to embark on another journey led by Luca as we explore his conception of The Tempest Songbook with these fabulous singers and dancers." The Tempest Songbook will be conducted by Neal Goren and directed and choreographed by Luca Veggetti, with scenic design by Clifton Taylor and Luca Veggetti, costume design by Peter Speliopoulos, lighting design by Clifton Taylor, and video creation by Jean-Baptiste Barrière; and will feature Jennifer Zetlan, soprano, Thomas Richards, bass-baritone, and dancers from the Graham Company: Peiju Chien-Pott, Abdiel Jacobsen, Lloyd Mayor, Xiaochuan Xie.

"There has been no company I have been so glad to discover as Noche Flamenca and, above all, its lead dancer, Soledad Barrio. I can think of no current ballet star in the world as marvelous as she." —Alastair Macaulay, The New York Times Sizzling flamenco electrifies the stage as this Madrid-based company of dancers, singers and musicians provides an authentic look at a fiery and expressive art form. Soledad Barrio & Noche Flamenca promise a passionate journey through the very heart and soul of flamenco. All aspects of flamenco – song, dance, and music – are interrelated, creating a true communal spirit among the group’s ten performers. But Barrio is the indisputable star, a great artist without pretense, who makes you aware that, above its virtuosic feet, flamenco is an art of curves, arcs and circles. Her body is her soul’s instrument, ensnared by the music, and you feel yourself fortunate to be in the same space with her. Tickets: $23-55 (Prices include $3 restoration fee)

WHAT is Soul de Soul? Soul de Soul (SDS) is a dance convention for dancers at any level of experience from ages 5 - 50. SDS offers classes in a variety of styles for "mini" dancers through teachers and everyone in between! Co-founded and directed by best friends, Hilary McAlister and Mackenzie Crosley, this convention is meant to be a way of sharing their passion for dance with other young artists. SDS reaches to empower dancers of all ages by creating a community where they can dance, risk and excel in a safe environment with some of the best teachers and choreographers in the industry. SDS offers class in several styles but believes the improv class is the true heart of Soul de Soul as it imparts a new understanding and true love of movement. WHY we created SDS: Soul de Soul was created out of our shared concern of the closed off community that we felt in our city due to the lack of opportunity to take from other local teachers outside of home studios and the desire to bridge the gap between studios and dancers who were training down the street from each other 3 times a week. Our efforts were to create a safe place free from those boundaries and to offer a safe place where dancers, students, teachers and anyone with the shared affinity for dance could come create and experience others' talents. This is the founding integrity of our company.
