NEW YORK THEATRE BALLET Announces 2016-17 Season New York Theatre Ballet announces the 2016-17 season, which will include repertory performances throughout the year.

The work is inspired by the history of Danspace Project at St. Mark's Church-in-the-Bowery: “I was very moved by the recent exhibit at the Church which was of tee shirts used as grave sites for the numerous children killed by guns in the past year,” said Antonia Franceschi. Also featured in the program is Jerome Robbins' Antique Epigraphs set to Debussy’s “6 Épigraphes Antiques,” staged by Kyra Nichols, and Song Before Spring choreographed by Zhong-Jing Fang (American Ballet Theatre, corps de ballet) and Steven Melendez (New York Theatre Ballet, principal dancer) to Philip Glass’ Piano Etudes played live by steel drum ensemble, NYU Steel. Jack Anderson recently wrote about Song Before Spring in London’s Dancing Times: “…This was not the gambol one might expect, but an emotional outburst that plunged young people into unruly and unpredictable passions…” and from Carla Escoda of the Huffington Post: “The evening closed with a tumultuous 48 minute account of Philip Glass’ etudes arranged for steel drums. The 12-member NYU Steel ensemble took no prisoners. neither did co-choreographers Steven Melendez, of New York Theatre Ballet and Zhong-Jing Fang of American Ballet Theatre.” 70th Birthday Gala for Founder and Artistic Director, Diana Byer Danspace Project October 7, 2016 at 6:30pm The evening will include Judgment of Paris by Antony Tudor and new works created especially for the event by Alexandra Damiani, former Artistic Director of Cedar Lake; David Parker & The Bang Group Marco Pelle with a new solo; Antonia Franceschi with a new solo for Romany Pajdak from London’s Royal Ballet; and Gemma Bond, followed by dancing with DJ Imogene Strauss.

Join us for a day of dancing with other women! All levels of experience are welcome. Given this current political time, creating spaces for and/ or held by women feels valuable on many levels. We are interested in creating more spaces for women to practice contact improvisation with one another. This may be of interest to you because you want a safer space to practice/ learn this form; because you more often dance with men; because your dances with women seem too careful and you wonder why; or because your most fun dances are with women and you want more! We have noticed that male-female duets tend to be most common in CI jams (even though this is a non-gendered form with no lead or follow). We aim to question that and focus our attention on dancing with other women. In this mixed-level workshop, we will offer contact improvisation skills of falling, flying, and moving with ease into unknown trajectories, while also investigating what is unique to dancing with women. We are interested in the technical (also, social/ emotional) challenges associated with having full spectrum CI dances together. We will be present together, offer ourselves the opportunity to find exhilaration and intimacy, and open to what arises. *trans friendly Schedule: 9:30am space opens for warm-ups 10:00am-1:00pm, morning session 1:00-1:30pm, lunch 1:30-3:30pm, afternoon 3:30pm, closing circle 4:00pm -- out of the space $85.00 for General and/or at the door; $75.00 for BDA/Students/Seniors/military

A performance by women traverses the terrain of relationship, the inventiveness of situation, and the progression of life. Forty+ features new works grounded in movement. An appealing theatricality reveals shaded humor and powerful communication through the female form. Choreographers Andie deVaulx and Sandra Atkinson contribute new works and recent works by Emily Crews and Jane Franklin are performed. Too Many Cooks by Emily Crews counts on concise and amusing kitchen maneuvers to contribute to the creative results. Recipes are realized through group effort with surprising results. Is it a hit or a miss? Artifact by Jane Franklin distills fragments of time, moments shaped by lives welllived. Photographs of the performers are projected as the movement progresses. The three individuals find connection through familiar experiences of youth, motherhood, and memory. Andie deVaulx newest work shifts eight dancers in interwoven patterns and Sandra Atkinson calls on improvisation and the structures of jazz music to find form. Two pieces by Jane Franklin excite in bluegrass fiddle, finding friendly partnership and swift pairings in the American roots music of Baltimore composer Patrick McAvinue.

For a second year, 2016-17 CATALYSTS artists-in-residence will perform at The Dance Complex for three weekends in January. This year’s artists, Ryan Casey, Lorraine Chapman, Junichi Fukuda, Yosi Karahashi, and Doppelgänger Dance Collective (DDC): Danielle Davidson and Shura Baryshnikov, represent classic and hybrid forms including tap, modern, and flamenco. CATALYSTS performances, which will run in repertory and highlight 4 - 5 performers per night. Performances are three weekends: January 14-15, 20-22, and 27-28. This year’s CATALYSTS selections reflect both expansive and unique talent, as well as demonstrating individual self-motivation in making dance a reality. Now halfway through their rehearsal process, each artist’s work will reflect dynamic themes, approaching their subject matter as a starting point for inspiring dance presentations: Ryan P. Casey will perform excerpts from a piece titled "Unbound.” It follows a high school student reluctantly attempting his summer reading assignment: an essay on Little House on the Prairie. When the book fails to capture his interest, his imagination takes over, and the words and characters leap from the page to the stage. Lorraine Chapman’s "Big In The Big Top" is a study, in several working sections, composed of raw material. By no means trying to make a political statement, the material in itself is a catalyst for the performers to explore their feelings about the state of current events in our country today. The role that duality plays in society is also examined - the putting on of one face over another. Doppelgänger Dance with Danielle Davidson and Shura Baryshnikov will perform a piece by Alissa Cardone. Her work for Doppelgänger Dance Collective is inspired by the collages of Dadaist photomontage artist Hannah Höch. Exploring this source material, Cardone uses image-based movement as a jumping off point to explore vocabularies and approaches found in butoh, release technique, and physical theater. With the physicality and theatricality of the dancers uncovered, two distinct characters emerge and move in relationship to self, other, present and past. Junichi Fukuda is choreographing No More Mendacity. Set around Boston Conservatory students, the piece reflects on the physical and emotional states of being truthful to yourself. The work concentrates on discovering honesty and rawness of being truthful. No more rounding, avoiding, and hiding. Yosi Karahashi’s piece shares her personal dream of being a Flamenco dancer through a musical movement journey from Japan to Spain to the United States. TICKET LINK http://catalysts2017.bpt.me/

Using a long-form structure, Artistic Director Elizabeth Dishman joins with collaborator/performers Leah Ives (Trisha Brown Dance Company), Joshua Reaver (Third Rail Productions) and Myssi Robinson (Kyle Marshall Choreography) in an homage to process, pursuing an articulation of the live moment that is both piercing and lush. Responding to the disillusionment of the day, Run-on seeks both solace and power in the persistence of creativity, the tenacity of beauty, the everness of potential, and the generative nature of the body.

Farrell Dyde Dance Theatre & Novodada present Mountains Are Mountains, Three New Works by Farrell Dyde Friday February 3 & Saturday February 4 2017 at 8 PM at The Match Houston, Texas Mountains Are Mountains, Three New Works by Farrell Dyde, is part of a larger, ongoing research and development project entitled Strategies, Visions, and Excavations --- strategies for making new dances, visions that come from dreams and other sources outside day to day reality and excavations of past memories. Farrell Dyde in this performance is sharing with the audience the results of his last two years work alone in the studio to evolve new movement vocabularies and ways of shaping those dance lexicons into new works that seem to have a necessity for being as well as providing some level of entertainment for the viewer. They represent a kind of dialogue or wrestling to resolve the conflict between purely abstract dance and dance that has some form of narrative and character driven “plot.” And between something that is highly structured and complete improvisation – between freedom and security. Dyde likes to keep the “meaning” of the dance somewhat mysterious so descriptions are not necessarily given to tell what the piece is “about” but rather to serve as an enticement to get people interested enough to come and experience them in person for themselves. The three new works on the program are: 1. Koan Blue with an early minimalist score by Michael Nyman is a kind of dance riddle with a gentle humor that also has roots in the kind of pure dance that formed early classic forms in its technical simplicity and use of space. 2. New York Nocturne set to music by Gavin Bryars is a cubistic Hamlet-like soliloquy in dance that occurs in an unreal dreamscape where anything can happen. (with a more expressionistic, surrealistic style that abstractly depicts a man coming to terms with deep grief, remorse and regret.) 3. The Last Boy concerns a boy growing up & coming of age possibly in the 1950s, 60s, & 70s as seen through the lens of a man in his late 60s. The work springs forth from a score by the late Harry Nilsson (The Beatles “favorite singer” and music that Dyde listened to obsessively while at college in 1969 in Boulder, Colorado) whose fragile, addictive personality and untimely death also impacts the nature of the piece. Farrell Dyde is an American choreographer, dancer and actor who has created over 100 original modern and post modern movement theater works of varying dimension and approach and that cover a broad spectrum of both narrative and non-narrative for his own company and many other companies and institutions. An original member of the CAM(Contemporary Arts Museum) choreographers in Houston, he created two world premiere ballets for Houston Ballet (1983 & 1985). “Farrell Dyde is a witty, articulate dancer/choreographer whose inventiveness and clarity of thought remind me of Merce Cunningham….Dyde is a perfect exemplar of modern dance, of disciplined investigation into new ways of making dance.” -- Nancy Kauffman, Austin American Statesman www.farrelldyde.org

Felice Lesser Dance Theater’s 2017 season will feature the world premiere of Lightning, a multi-media dance dealing with timely issues facing the world in the new year, set to a score by the contemporary Slovenian composer Borut Krzisnik*. The season will run for six performances, February 8 – 12, 2017 at The Duke on 42nd Street, 229 W. 42nd Street (between 7th and 8th Avenues). Lightning combines drama and humor to reflect Lesser’s reaction to today’s complex political and social issues, including Trump’s election, the rise of racism and anti-gay sentiment, the plight of immigrants and refugees, and growing world violence. Video preview link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xofQz6q6y5s *Note: Borut Krzisnik’s score for Lightning will have its U.S. premiere on February 8, the Slovenian holiday of “Preseren Day,” a national cultural holiday celebrated with free cultural festivals, performances and art exhibits. In keeping with the spirit of the holiday and its own strong commitment to cultural outreach, the opening night audience will be invited to a post-performance champagne toast, in honor of the holiday. Thursday, February 9 will be a “Twenty for Twenties” special performance: $20 tickets and a post-performance reception will be available to anyone in their 20s. The Felice Lesser Dance Theater (FLDT), founded in 1975 by choreographer, playwright, filmmaker and animator, Felice Lesser, creates and performs her contemporary dance works, which are mixed with theater and technology. Lesser's "moving sets" of simultaneous projected video and computer animation are featured as a visual background to what is happening onstage, where live dancers interact with filmed ones, or distorted images appear as counterpoint. Lightning will reflect on some of today's most important issues: borders, global warming, inclusion, terrorism, technology, and artificial intelligence.

SYREN Modern Dance will premiere Red and Blue, Bitter and Sweet, a piece inspired by the dynamic and mysterious world of quantum physics. Each evening will include a conversation with Allen Mincer, Ph.D, and Professor of Physics at NYU. The piece explores theories such as Entanglement, Duality, Uncertainty Principle and Superposition in a way that aims to shed light on complex scientific theory through the lens of art and human connection. The way particles function at the subatomic level is vastly different than how we see the world function on a daily basis. The disparity between both realities is a key point of departure for the work. While the inspiration for the piece is science-based, the exploration itself is filled with humanity. The many emotions we experience throughout life: love, joy, loss, and anticipation are all explored. Life itself is the manifestation of the way our particles interact; both within us and within each other- it is a dance, indeed. February 9, 10, 11, 2017 at 8:00PM Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door.

Colorado Ballet will present a collection of three master ballet works to live music by the Colorado Ballet Orchestra in Ballet MasterWorks, which includes Firebird, by choreographer Yuri Possokhov and music by Igor Stravinsky.

The production will also feature Serenade choreographed by George Balanchine to Tchaikovsky’s “Serenade for Strings in C.” Serenade was the first original ballet Balanchine created in America and is one of the signature works of New York City Ballet’s repertory. Colorado Ballet is extremely excited to present a work by choreographer Jiří Kylián for the first time—rounding out the program with Petite Mort by Kylián with music by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

Tom Gold Dance presents its sixth annual New York City season, Tuesday, March 14 and Wednesday, March 15 at the Gerald W. Lynch Theater at John Jay College. The Company will give the local premieres of Tom Gold Dance Founder and Director Tom Gold’s Oasis and Served. Details about a third work, a World Premiere, will be announced at a later date. Scheduled performers currently include dancers Sara Adams, Marika Anderson, Daniel Applebaum, Meagan Mann, and Kristen Segin of New York City Ballet; Allynne Noelle of The Suzanne Farrell Ballet; Zachary Guthier, most recently of Los Angeles Ballet; and James Shee, most recently of the National Ballet; and pianist Xak Bjerken. In 2017, Tom Gold Dance is a City University of New York Dance Initiative (CDI) resident artist, a collaboration that will allow the Company to rehearse and offer additional public activities at the Gerald W. Lynch Theater. Oasis was commissioned by the St. Louis Ballet as part of its October 8, 2016 Vision: Where Ballet and Fashion Meet program at The Touhill Performing Arts Center pairing three choreographers with three emerging fashion designers. Set to John Zorn’s “Lucifer” from the Book of Angels, Oasis explores the composer’s exotic and jazz-infused constructions through an imagined group meeting at a desert retreat. Oasis completes Gold’s Zorn trilogy, following Shanti (2003) and La Plage (2013). Gold began to develop Served in July 2016 as a participant in the 13th annual National Choreographers Initiative (NCI) in Irvine, California. While watching a tennis match on television, Gold observed similarities to ballet, not only in the sport’s power physicality, and intensity, but also its rhythm, balance, technical discipline, and virtuosity. Set to Schubert’s demanding Wanderer Fantasy, Served explores these qualities through the articulated steps of a “dancers’ club.” Allynne Noelle and Zachary Guthier, who appeared in Served during the NCI’s culminating public workshop presentation at the Irvine Barclay Theatre, July 30, 2016, will reprise their roles in the New York Premiere at the Lynch Theater. Served will be performed to live accompaniment. “We can’t wait to return to the Gerald W. Lynch Theater for our annual New York City season,” says Gold. “These works will demonstrate the wide range of traditional classical dancing across multiple and contrasting musical styles in our trademark mix of sophistication and fun. I am especially excited to introduce some of the original dancers from Served to New York audiences, and, as part of our effort to feature live music in all self- produced Tom Gold Dance events, to work with the highly accomplished pianist Xak Bjerken.” “After a productive and fulfilling year that included the Company’s European premiere of Tom’s adaptation of November Steps,” adds Executive Director Alexander Zaretsky, “we look forward to welcoming new and familiar faces to our home city performances. We are especially grateful for the chance to partner directly with the Gerald W. Lynch Theater to enhance the public’s awareness of and access to high quality and original dancing through the CDI residency program.” Information Tuesday, March 14, 2017 at 7:30PM Wednesday, March 15, 2017 at 7:30PM Both performances are at the Gerald W. Lynch Theater, 524 West 59th St. (between 10th and 11th avenues).

Enter the exotic world beloved author Lewis Carroll created through his time-tested story, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Our heroine, Alice, and all of the eccentric characters she encounters, jump from page to stage in this wacky, whimsical production, featuring fanciful sets, outlandish costumes and movement styles that fuse classical ballet with contemporary ballroom, modern and hip-hop choreography. You can’t miss this giddy conclusion to a storybook season! Choreography by Septime Webre Music by Matthew Pierce Live accompaniment by musicians from Austin Symphony Orchestra
