It asks the same question that Faustin asked people in the streets and fields in 2006: what has become of your dreams in war-ravaged Congo? Set to Mozart’s Requiem, performed live by rising opera star Serge Kakudji, dancers and actors move through a landscape of ruins, looking for remainders of their dreams. Faustin Linyekula, an internationally renowned dancer, founded Studios Kabako, a space for contemporary dance serving his native Democratic Republic of Congo. Faustin lives and works in Kisangani, North-East of the Democratic Republic of Congo, former Zaire, former Belgian Congo, former independent state of Congo.

METTE INGVARTSEN: 7 PLEASURES September 29 – 30 at 7:30 pm At the heart of Mette Ingvartsen's 7 Pleasures, 12 performers confront notions of nudity, body politics and sexual practice, questioning the borders between private and public space by literally placing the naked body in the middle of the theater public. In this American premiere, pleasure becomes a perceptual as much as a political question. How do we use pleasures joyful potential to disrupt cliché images attached to nudity and sexuality? Mette Ingvartsen is a Danish choreographer and dancer. Questions of kinesthesia, perception, affect and sensation have been crucial to most of her work, which includes several site-specific propositions and have been seen around the world. Mette was artist-in-residence at the KAAITHEATER in Brussels from 2013 till 2016 and is currently part of the artistic team at Volksbühne in Berlin. metteingvartsen.net BALLETCOLLECTIVE October 25– 27 at 7:30 pm BalletCollective’s 2017 program, Translation, consists of two new ballet-based works that are the result of experimental collaborations between boundary-pushing artists, composers and choreographers. The first work will feature contributions from choreographer and BalletCollective founder Troy Schumacher, artist Sergio Mora-Diaz, composer Julianna Barwick and speculative fiction writer and translator Ken Liu. The second will feature choreographer Gabrielle Lamb, composer Caleb Burhans, and artist Trevor Paglen. While each work is distinct, both are rooted in an exploration of the concept of translation in contemporary culture. BalletCollective connects artists, composers, and choreographers to create new ballet-based works. Through a unique consideration of process, the Collective produces collaborative works that expand the boundaries of artistic disciplines and resonate with a wide audience. Founded in 2010 by choreographer Troy Schumacher, BalletCollective has collaborated with over 50 artistic partners and produced ten new works. www.balletcollective.com JÉRÔME BEL: GALA March 1 and 2 at 7:30 pm; March 3 at 3pm Featuring amateurs, professionals and everything in between, the 20 dancers of Gala will be cast in NYC from all walks of life. Through their movement, the gentle humanity of each performer lights up this inspired production. Breaking the sanctity of the stage, this is a jumble of joys, failures, and stumbling insights into the uniting power of dance. Jérôme Bel, the “mischievously entertaining” (The Guardian) Paris-based choreographer, explores the relationship between choreography and popular culture, dancer and audience, often using humor to break the formality of a theater apparatus. Bel’s work has often been referred to as conceptual. He questions both art and contemporary dance by deconstructing modes of presentation and the notion of authorship while problematizing the historical prominence of technical virtuosity in dance. jeromebel.fr Gala is part of the third annual Tilt Kids Festival, a cultural event for families presented by the Cultural Services of the French Embassy and the French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF). MAI: LIL BUCK AND JON BOOGZ: LOVE HEALS ALL WOUNDS April 13 at 7:30 pm; April 14 at 3 pm and 7:30 pm Love Heals All Wounds, an evening-length work by MAI (Movement Art Is), addresses social issues such as police brutality and violence in America while seeking to promote diversity, inclusion, and empathy as a uniting force. MAI (Movement Art Is), co-founded by Jon Boogz and Lil Buck, uses movement artistry to inspire and change the world while elevating the artistic educational and social impact of dance. Through movement art films, workshops, performances and exhibitions, MAI is resetting the spectrum that defines dance. movementartis.com, Jon Boogz is a movement artist, choreographer and director who seeks to push the evolution of what dance can be – sharing with audiences of all backgrounds an appreciation of the melding of art forms while inspiring and bringing awareness to social issues. He co-starred in the viral short film Color of Reality, which continues to screen at film festivals worldwide and has won numerous awards. LIL BUCK is an International phenomenon. He began jookin’ – a street dance that originated in Memphis – at age 13 and went on to train in hip-hop and ballet.

Since then he has collaborated with a broad spectrum of artists across the world, and is an avid arts education advocate and recipient of the WSJ Innovator Award. MEG STUART/DAMAGED GOODS & MÜNCHNER KAMMERSPIELE UNTIL OUR HEARTS STOP May 4 – 5 at 7:30 pm In Until Our Hearts Stop, an American premiere, six performers and three musicians find themselves in a place that is both a nightclub and an arena: an unreliable, high-octane refuge, a place of desire and illusion, experiencing extreme intimacy at each other’s hands. To the sound of throbbing basses, piano and drums - a mix between improvisation and composition - they connect and explore each other, drawing the audience into their immersive world. Meg Stuart is a New Orleans-born choreographer and dancer living and working in Berlin and Brussels. Stuart moved to New York in 1983 and was actively involved in the downtown New York dance scene. Together with her company, Damaged Goods, she has created over 30 stage works, ranging from solos to large-scale choreographies, site-specific creations and improvisation projects.

In what has become an "enjoyable tradition during the holiday season" (The New York Times), Ballet Hispánico in collaboration with the Apollo Theatermakes its annual return to the Apollo stage on December 1-2, 2017, led by Eduardo Vilaro. Three inspiring works reflect on the migrant experience, the tragedy of marginalization and the resilience and triumph of the human spirit to capture contemporary Latino culture through movement. The performances are supported by Goya Foods, Lead Sponsor of Ballet Hispánico. Con Brazos Abiertos (2017) choreographed by Michelle Manzanales, is an exploration of iconic Mexican symbols that she was reluctant to embrace as a Mexican-American child growing up in Texas. Intertwining folkloric details with a distinct voice, set to music that ranges from Julio Iglesias to rock en español, the piece is a fun and frank look at a life caught between two cultures. Espiritu Vivo (2012) an exciting collaboration between Ballet Hispánico and Brooklyn-based choreographer Ronald K. Brown, explores the intersection of the African and Latino diasporas in the Caribbean and Latin America. Finally, choreographer Ramon Oller's Bury Me Standing (1998) was inspired by the unique culture of the Gypsy or "Roma" people, a marginalized community that has journeyed across continents for thousands of years. "The Apollo is a treasured partner and a home for Ballet Hispánico and we're excited to bring these three inspiring works to one of the most important theaters in the world," said Eduardo Vilaro, Artistic Director and CEO of Ballet Hispánico. "Throughout our 47-year history, Ballet Hispánico has been bringing communities together to share, celebrate and explore our cultures. We are honored that The Apollo will once again be part of our journey." "We are thrilled to have Ballet Hispánico return to the Apollo this year with three powerful works which speak directly to what's going on in our country right now," said Kamilah Forbes, the Apollo's new Executive Producer. "Though music has always been at the core of the Theater's mission, dance has also been an integral part of the Apollo's DNA. We continue to honor that legacy through collaborations with esteemed companies like Ballet Hispánico, the premier Latina dance organization in the United States." There will be a post-performance artist talkback with Ron Brown and Michelle Manzanales moderated by Eduardo Vilaro, Ballet Hispánico's Artistic/Executive Director. The discussion will focus on creating culturally specific dance work. Additional programs at the Apollo Theater will include special Ballet Hispánico Performances for Young People / Apollo School Day Live shows of mixed repertory for schoolchildren. Ballet Hispánico's Performances for Young People (PYP) are interactive 50-minute productions that delight students with a guided exploration of Latin American dance forms and music. Apollo School Day Live provides new generations of theater-goers with exciting opportunities to learn about the arts, history and culture. Tickets for the evening shows are $10-65 and are available online at Ticketmaster.com, by phone at (800) 745-3000, or in person at the Apollo Theater Box Office at 253 W. 125th Street, NYC. For more information, visit www.ballethispanico.org. Goya Foods is the Lead Sponsor of Ballet Hispánico's New York Fall Season. Major support for Ballet Hispánico's New York Fall Season was provided by The James and Judith K. Dimon Foundation. MetLife Foundation is the Official Tour Sponsor of Ballet Hispánico. Univision Communications, Inc. is Media Sponsor of Ballet Hispánico. ABOUT BALLET HISPÁNICO Ballet Hispánico, the premier Latino dance organization in the United States, brings individuals and communities together to celebrate and explore Latino cultures through dance. Whether dancing on stage, in school, or in the street, Ballet Hispánico creates a space where few institutions are breaking ground. The organization's founder, National Medal of Arts recipient Tina Ramirez, sought to give voice to the Hispanic experience and break through stereotypes. Today Ballet Hispánico is led by Eduardo Vilaro, an acclaimed choreographer and former member of the Company, whose vision of social equity, cultural identity and quality arts education for all, drives its programs. Ballet Hispánico, a role model in and for the Latino community, is inspiring creativity and social awareness in our neighborhoods and across the country by providing access to arts education. EDUARDO VILARO joined Ballet Hispánico as Artistic Director in August 2009, becoming only the second person to head the company since it was founded in 1970. In 2015, Mr. Vilaro took on the additional role of Chief Executive Officer of Ballet Hispánico. He has been part of the Ballet Hispánico family since 1985 as a dancer and educator, after which he began a ten-year record of achievement as founder and Artistic Director of Luna Negra Dance Theater in Chicago. Mr. Vilaro has infused Ballet Hispánico's legacy with a bold and eclectic brand of contemporary dance that reflects America's changing cultural landscape. Born in Cuba and raised in New York from the age of six, he is a frequent speaker on the merits of cultural diversity and dance education. Mr.Vilaro's own choreography is devoted to capturing the spiritual, sensual and historical essence of the Latino cultures. He created over 20 ballets for Luna Negra and has received commissions from the Ravinia Festival, the Chicago Sinfonietta, the Grant Park Festival, the Lexington Ballet and the Chicago Symphony. In 2001, he was a recipient of a Ruth Page Award for choreography, and in 2003, he was honored for his choreographic work at Panama's II International Festival of Ballet. In 2016, he was inducted into the Bronx Walk of Fame. ABOUT THE APOLLO THEATER The legendary Apollo Theater- the soul of American culture- plays a vital role in cultivating emerging talents and launching legends. Since its founding, the Apollo has served as a center of innovation, and a creative catalyst for Harlem, the city of New York, and the world. With music at its core, the Apollo's programming extends to dance, theater, performance art, spoken word initiatives, and more. Recent highlights have included James Brown: Get on the Good Foot, the Africa Now! Festival, and Apollo Club Harlem. The Apollo is a presenting organization that also produces festivals, large-scale dance and music work. The Apollo's vision is global and includes touring and a digital media presence. The Apollo's work is organized around a set of core initiatives: Apollo Music (African American and culturally diverse artists); Signature programs (Amateur Night, Salon Series and the Apollo Music Café); Legacy Series (work that celebrates and extends our legacy in a more contemporary way); Global Festival (international and U.S. based artists presentations focused under a specific theme); Special Projects (multidisciplinary work with partner organizations). Since introducing the first Amateur Night contests in 1934, the Apollo Theater has served as a testing ground for new artists working across a variety of art forms, and has ushered in the emergence of many new musical genres - including jazz, swing, bebop, R&B, gospel, blues, soul, and hip-hop. Among the countless legendary performers who launched their careers at the Apollo are Lauryn Hill, Machine Gun Kelly, Unlocking the Truth, Miri Ben Ari, D'Angelo, Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Billie Holiday, James Brown, Michael Jackson, Gladys Knight, Luther Vandross, and Stevie Wonder; and the Apollo's forward-looking artistic vision continues to build on this legacy.

Choreographer Stefanie Nelson presents the NYC premiere of her work A MY NAME IS…, an exploration of memory and forgetting inspired by the choreographer’s personal encounter with a family member’s dementia. Employing a cast of four dancers and a multidisciplinary team of international collaborators, the work focuses on the phenomenon of gravity (both physical and metaphoric) as well as repetition and disappearance. Nelson builds a gestural vocabulary for the piece the same way as one’s language skills develop and disintegrate over time and uses it to reflect upon memory and forgetting, aging and loss. The special advisor for the project is David Shenk, a bestselling author of The Forgetting: Alzheimer's: Portrait of an Epidemic. Developed in residency in Italy, the work features stop-motion video by Elisa D'Amico (Italy), original music by composers Sahand Rahbar (Iran/Canada) and Jonah Kreitner (US), with set and light design by Solomon Weisbard (US).

"Your Sister Turns Into a Lion" is a new, evening-length narrative dance piece by Sharp & Fine about two sisters and what happens when one of them turns into a lion. Built on spoken text devised by the cast, the show is a hybrid of real memories and surreal fiction, a story told in acrobatic phone calls to next of kin, an interrogation presided over by a conductor, the unabashed savagery of beasts, and the tender folding of maps. Directed and choreographed by sisters Megan & Shannon Kurashige and created in collaboration with Oakland-based composer Jordan Glenn and five dancers, four musicians, and a classically trained vocalist. Cast: Sonja Dale, Megan Kurashige, Shannon Kurashige, Chelsea Reichert, Sarah Dionne Woods-LaDue // Music: Jordan Glenn & ensemble // Vocalist: Ina Woods

BalletX kicks off its 12th season with the return of Nicolo Fonte’s Beautiful Decay. Inspired by a series of Mark Goleblowski’s 3-D photographs of exotic flowers, Beautiful Decay takes audiences on an intimate journey exploring the connection between memory and aging, intertwining the company’s 10 dancers with two senior dance artists. Hailed by The Dance Journal as “explosive, athletic dance,” and a “sophisticated meditation on the passing of time,” the work features original sets designed by Mimi Lien (Tony Award Winner, 2015 MacArthur Fellow) and music from Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, Max Richter, and Olafur Arnalds. Fonte has won critical acclaim for his ballets created on companies around the world, including Les Ballets de Monte Carlo, Finnish National Ballet, and Dutch National Ballet, among many others.

Chicago Tap Theatre (CTT) bring audiences live music, a touch of magic and boundless energy with the return of their annual Tidings of Tap!, a warm and wondrous celebration of tap dance and the winter season. SeeChicagoDance said “It’s charming and gleeful and heart-rending at times.” And last year was just the beginning. CTT will be adding new pieces, a little more narrative, and a bit more magic just in time for Chicago Tap Theatre’s 15th Anniversary Season. Tidings of Tap! has been described by the Chicago Tribune as “undeniably charming and wholesome fun.” Children will even have the opportunity to be in the show this year, thanks to the expanding Chicago Tap Theatre Winter Intensive, which will be a two days event offering rhythm-loving kids the chance to learn technique, tap history and a short dance that will be incorporated into Tidings of Tap! More information on this program will be available at a later date. Now in its 15th year, Chicago Tap Theatre prides itself on breaking the mold of traditional tap dance and does the same with holiday entertainment. “Dance has the ability to bridge gaps and bring people together which is especially important at this time of year,” said Yonally. “CTT is excited to return with this holiday production, as it has become one of our favorite things seeing familiar faces and families attending year after year celebrating their holidays with us. This year audiences will feel the magic of the Holidays more than ever in Tidings’ home at the North Shore Center.”

SPLIT BILL at Triskelion Arts featuring Caitlin Cullen Dance, Olive Prince Dance, Zehnder Dance, and Akerman/Jansen December 14 - 17, 2017 at 7:30pm Triskelion Arts’ Muriel Schulman Theater 106 Calyer Street, Brooklyn, NY 11222 – Enter on Banker Street Tickets: $18 in advance | $22 at the door Purchase: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/split-bill-at-triskelion-arts-december-2017-tickets-35984114455 The Split Bill program aims to serve emerging and mid-career artists looking for a stepping-stone between the showcase format and evening-length self-production. Unlike many showcases, this series encourages the development of premiere, long-form pieces between 20 and 40 minutes. Split Bill presents all kinds of movement-based work with each night offering two different companies. PERFORMANCE SCHEDULE Thursday, December 14: Olive Prince Dance & Zehnder Dance Friday, December 15: Caitlin Cullen Dance & Olive Prince Dance Saturday, December 16: Zehnder Dance & Akerman/Jansen Sunday, December 17: Akerman/Jansen & Caitlin Cullen Dance ABOUT THE ARTISTS Zehnder Dance premieres an exciting new work exploring what it means to be “connected.” This piece takes a deeper look at relationships and addictions between self, others, technology, and drugs through a series of duets and solos. The audience is drawn into a world of manipulation and conflict, as each moment of connection offers a glimpse into the individual’s struggle to embrace, give in, resist, or fight back. Through complex partnering, dynamic athleticism and risk-taking, dancers showcase both dependency and codependency, playing between tension, conflict, desperation, isolation, and tenderness deepening our understanding of the human experience. Caitlin Cullen Dance produces work that excites the viewers with rich physicality, while creating a sense of health by delving deeply into life's simple beauties. Each dance challenges sensitivity to everyday interactions, by cultivating balance and exploring the extraordinary combination of delicacy and power. With uninhibited generosity, the artists are able to encourage openness, discussion, and heartfelt thoughts, through the ideals that develop the work. In this new work, the dancers scrutinize their most intimate memories, exploring fantasies and realities. They work to find a balance. A certain empowerment must be recognized in order to push forward, toward what may seem unrealistic or unreachable. Featuring a wooden seesaw by Jason Rondinelli, "Letting Go of the Ground" is a new work by Lily Akerman and Krista Jansen, where two people try to find a balance on and off the ground. Olive Prince Dance, a Philadelphia dance company, makes a NYC premiere with a mysterious and emotive group work, "Of our remnants". Inspired by a page from Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s book, Love in the Time of Cholera, where he describes the visual details of a house “under the rule of death”, a collection of abandoned chairs set the stage as a dance of expressive physicality and intimate connections emerge. "Of our remnants" creates a moving metaphor exploring union and death, together and apart, collective and alone. Gutsy and honest performances abound.

Miami City Ballet’s new redesign of the magical George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker® will feature enchanting new costumes and sets by the designer-artist power couple Isabel and Ruben Toledo, Balanchine’s glorious choreography and Tchaikovsky’s beloved score. The production, co-commissioned by The Music Center in Los Angeles, will run at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts in Miami from December 15 – 24, 2017. All performances will feature live music performed by the Miami City Ballet’s Opus One Orchestra, conducted by Gary Sheldon. The production will have its world premiere in Los Angeles on December 7, 2017. Isabel and Ruben Toledo’s fanciful new sets and costumes will enhance this classic holiday tale of a young girl and her magical Nutcracker Prince, who journey to an enchanted kingdom where heroic toy soldiers battle giant mice, and a glittering Sugarplum Fairy dwells in a magical Land of Sweets. Miami City Ballet is one of the few companies in the country to continuously perform George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker®, which it has done for almost 30 years. The production features a cast of over 100, including 70 children. Following the Miami engagement, the new production will run at the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts in West Palm Beach from December 28 – 30, 2017, opening with a special family-friendly afternoon performance. Lourdes Lopez, Miami City Ballet’s Artistic Director, said, “There’s no more popular ballet than George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker®, and no more brilliant and magical a ballet narrative. Audiences – grownups as well as children – come back to it again and again, for Tchaikovsky’s great score, for its stage magic, and for its profound insight into childhood. What an honor to work with Isabel and Ruben Toledo, two great artists who understand the importance and impact of this work through generations, and with a great artistic team that includes Wendall Harrington and James Ingalls. They will create a new production that uniquely belongs to Miami City Ballet and will become the highlight of the holiday season in Florida.” “We are inspired by Balanchine’s elegant, witty vision and Tchaikovsky’s lush compositions,” said Ruben Toledo. “The story’s links between the mystical human imagination, the language of dreams and the power of transformation influenced our designs, and allowed us to imagine worlds of moonlit landscapes, frozen wonders, and a light-filled Caribbean paradise, reflecting our Cuban heritage.” Isabel and Ruben Toledo are internationally renowned artists in the worlds of high fashion, style and design. The couple has strong ties to Miami and South Florida: In 2012, MDC’s Freedom Tower hosted “Toledo/Toledo: Full Circle,” a retrospective of three decades of their creative collaboration; they received a Lifetime Achievement Award by Fashion Group International, presented in Miami in 2011; and are currently collaborating on design elements for the new Park Grove Residential Towers in Coconut Grove. They are recipients of the 2005 National Design Award from the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum. Isabel Toledo was nominated for a 2014 Tony Award for her costume designs for the Broadway musical revue After Midnight and designed costumes for Christopher Wheeldon’s Commedia and Twyla Tharp’s Yemayá. Toledo, who has been described as a radical classicist, has been designing and exhibiting her collections twice-yearly since 1984 and became an international household name when she created the lemongrass lace coat dress worn by former First Lady Michelle Obama at President Obama's first inauguration in 2009. Ruben Toledo has created illustrations for such prestigious publications as The New Yorker, Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, Town & Country and The New York Times, among others. His work has been exhibited at prestigious institutions including The Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute, Victoria and Albert Museum in London and Pitti Palace in Italy. Wendall K. Harrington is an award-winning projection designer, known as the godmother of modern projection design. Her work has been seen in a range of diverse disciplines, including theater, multi-media design, opera, ballet and concert production. Lighting designer James K. Ingalls is known for his work on Broadway and with international and national ballet and opera companies. Both Harrington and Ingalls most recently worked with Miami City Ballet on the projections and lighting for Alexei Ratmansky’s The Fairy’s Kiss, which had its world premiere during the 2016-17 season. ABOUT MIAMI CITY BALLET Miami City Ballet, now in its 32nd season, has been led by Artistic Director Lourdes Lopez since 2012. Lopez was recently named one of “The Most Influential People in Dance Today” by Dance Magazine. MCB was founded in 1985 by Miami philanthropist Toby Lerner Ansin and Founding Artistic Director Edward Villella. The Company has 52 dancers and a repertoire of more than 100 ballets. MCB performs for nearly 100,000 patrons annually during its South Florida home season in Miami, Fort Lauderdale, West Palm Beach and Naples, and tours to top theaters domestically and internationally.

Bryn Cohn + Artists presents their first evening of repertory, The Art of Loss, a collection of notable works from 2012-2017 that expose the rebellion, hope and despair that root in otherness. Renowned for their ferocious physicality, theatrical worlds and intimate performances, BC + A navigates an unforgettable cultural, emotional and kinetic adventure. The evening will include the World Premiere of a brand new politically-inspired work, A Perfect Union, which addresses the current sociopolitical climate in our world through the lenses of race, gender, sexuality, terrorism, activism, hierarchical structures and humanitarian effort. In her first-ever musical composition, Cohn has designed a mash-up score sourced from inaugural and political speeches by Jimmy Carter, Barack Obama, and Donald Trump. "A Perfect Union is both a personal response to the effects of political agenda as well as a larger communal commentary on the apocalyptic conditions that plague our country," said artistic director Bryn Cohn. "Through integration of a text-based score, America takes on a humanized presence within the work with whom the performer maintains a direct and intimate relationship. The score provides a rhythmic platform for movement generation and reinforces the conversational engine that is intrinsic to the thematic objectives. Layering of dialogue serves to reinforce the perpetual bombardment of information and negativity that saturate American existence. Theatrical undercurrents are illuminated through militant and sacrificial imagery in the body as well as symbolic motifs that parallel and counterpoint the spoken word." The program also includes four audience favorites: HOME, Skin, 4AM and If You Sink. HOME (2016) is a dance - theater work inspired by familial dynamics and the pursuit of physical, emotional and spiritual manifestations of connection. The work embodies a non-linear narrative that provides a lens into the varied encounters that occur within a group of individuals inhabiting, fighting for and existing in harmony within designated spaces. Music: Original Composition by Kevin Keller The newest piece in the company's repertory, 4AM (2017) illuminates the uncertainty, spirituality and sensuality that emanate from relinquishing inhibition and surrendering to sensation. Contextualized through examinations of rave and trance culture, kinetic and explosive choreography promotes ways of kinesthetically and psychologically losing oneself within environments, others and movement vocabularies. Music by Loscil, The Sight Below & Chaos, Move D, Positive Centre, Planetary Assault Systems, Julianna Barwick Skin (2015) explores how we physically and metaphorically "build" a person in a continuous cycle of creation and destruction in response to social castes, gender, race, sexuality and political systems. The cast enters dualistic states of being - God and man, sculptor and subject, dictator and citizen - exploring how each person or entity might be formed, and the freedom, rebellion and heroism that accompany this process. Music: Original Composition by Kevin Keller If You Sink (2012) examines archetypical models of hetero normative relationships and corresponding social constructions of power that exist. Movement languages encompassing rhythmic nuance punctuated by highly articulated gesture and classical idioms are seamlessly woven into the subtleties of Chopin's score. Music by Chopin Dancers: Chelsea Ainsworth, Nico Gonzales, Jessica Malat, Yuliya Romanskaya, Will Tomaskovic ABOUT BRYN COHN + ARTISTS Founded in 2011, Bryn Cohn + Artists is a New York-based contemporary dance company comprised of unique collaborative artists from diverse backgrounds.

Choreographer Lin-Hwai min's newest evening-length work, Formosa, takes the homeland as inspiration for a work of abstract beauty born from land and lore. Using gesture, script, song and other elements from the island as raw material, Lin and dancers create a lustrous, transfigured sphere in which only the universal remains a playground of love and life, mediated by tragedy, hope and rebirth. Recorded music by award-winning indigenous singer Sangpuy serves as the soundtrack as the dancers stomp, sway, dash and dart. With unparalleled grace, they mingle in intimations of community, making tribal ritual and urban bustle seem as one. Luminous projected images of Chinese character typefaces, interlocked and overlapped, provide the stunning visual backdrop. Devoid of specific meanings, they merge in teeming thickets to evoke a host of imagery: mountains and rivers, earthquakes and tsunamis, ancient inscriptions, a black sun. They seem to imply writing as a precarious vehicle for memories, which blur and recombine at the whim of history’s wind. At the work’s end, a blue sea appears amid the characters, only to wash them away in the waves.

In the spring, the Dance Center conducts a two-week festival focusing on ways in which concert dance presentation can be a document of process rather than dance as a consumable product. Process v. Product invites choreographers, dancers, presenters, students of dance and audiences to consider and reflect on ideas around how and why the creation, practice and witness of dancing can be more than a product for paying spectators. As part of this festival, Bebe Miller Company presents In a Rhythm, a suite of new dance works based on the dynamics of adaptation and translation. Inspired by the writings of Gertrude Stein, Toni Morrison and David Foster Wallace, whose voices capture diverse cultural relevancies through their structure of language, In a Rhythm looks at the syntax of movement—how we apprehend meaning through the juxtaposed dynamics of action and context in time and space. Miller is creating this work within an overarching collaborative project, The Making Room, an investigation into innovative ways of sharing the creative process.
