Carol Mendes & Artists presents LANOTTE+VERSO. Performances will take place September 10 – 13, 2015 at LA MAMA First Floor Theater, 74A E. 4th Street, New York, NYC. Performances are Thursday through Saturday at 7:30pm, and Sunday at 3:30pm. Tickets are $15 in advance/$18 day of show, and are available at carolmendes.brownpapertickets.com. LANOTTE is an assertively absurdist dance romp about being a woman. VERSO is the B side of LANOTTE; a reaction to ourselves and the change in our own creative process. LANOTTE +VERSO are inextricably linked: LANOTTE, a dark journey of the female mind, and VERSO, a fast paced succession of dancescapes. Each dance relies on the other, as a coin with two distinct sides. Abounding with darkness, LANOTTE explores different aspects of the female mind. Successive scenes that are at times theatrical and confrontational portray the performers’ innermost emotions to bring the audience on an emotional journey of the whole person. This work seeks to peel off layers off the self, exposing the internal female, vulnerable but strong. Ultimately, this dance is an ode to the complexities of womanhood. At VERSO, three dancers explore the human body’s coordination, creating extreme movement and violent conversations in space inspired by the electronic creations of Denmark musician Trentemøller. At moments an interactive performance, VERSO stretches the boundaries of performance space, with a visceral dialogue with the audience. ARTISTS: Frankie Fernandes, Lauren Elise Kravitz, and Erika Wuhrer. ABOUT CAROL MENDES Carol Mendes is a choreographer, dance filmmaker and dance educator. A native of Brazil, she received her BFA in Dance and her Teaching Certificate from State University of Campinas (Brazil). She also holds a Master’s in Fine Arts in Dance Performance and Choreography from NYU, Tisch School of the Arts. Her work has been presented at Judson Church, Triskelion Arts, at the Wild Project, at Martha Graham Studio Theater, at Alvin Ailey Citigroup Theater, at Dixon Place, and at The Green Building.

She is currently the Production Manager of WestFest2015 and the artistic director of Carol Mendes & Artists. ABOUT CAROL MENDES & ARTISTS Carol Mendes & Artists is a band of empowered female artists who strive to unveil the unexpected and challenge the familiar in the medium of dance.

Becky Radway Dance Projects creates innovative movement and introduces powerful, unforgettable imagery with each new production. Incorporating detailed gestures and lush partnering along with luscious music by singer/songwriter Elliott Smith, Nonetheless invites audiences to experience a collection of entwined duets, invoking the tensions and joys that are possible inside chance encounters, unbalanced partnerships, and intimate connections. "Radway is no minimalist, yet no detail seemed extraneous… It was a treat to see so much thought going into every aspect of the performance." – The Dance Enthusiast in regards to Becky Radway Dance Projects Leanne Schmidt and Company’s collaborative, comical work tickles its viewers with melodramatic movement rife with sincere sentiment. Developed through improvisational games and expressive play, the company combines tightly interwoven choreography and subtle gesture with content that is inarguably relatable, resulting in work that is simultaneously heartbreaking, hysterical and rich with metaphor. “...really sincere work that really got us excited about the state of choreography today.” – Phoenix New Times in regards to Leanne Schmidt & Company More Info: www.triskelionarts.org

Laurel Atwell: Necessary Friend The current state of “Necessary Friend” is that of transformation; a slow sophistication of freedom, memory, and choice. Zavé Martohardjono: GENERAL DYNAMICS Welcome to 2015. Your world is digitally generated, politically extremist, resource-depleted, selfie-obsessed, twerk-a-licious, and pushing at the margins of community sanity. Some might even say we no longer await the apocalypse. Alina Ruiz Folini: (It is) supposed that What is the dance of a body that is completely tired, confused and outside itself? Lily Bo Shapiro: a farther aspect Forming from fixation, this is a body on display aware of its position of display. It requests participatory spectatorship. “a farther aspect” wants to produce a landscape of reading and recognition inclusive of slippage, elision, fantasy, spectacle, collapse, and suggestion.

GENERAL MISCHIEF DANCE THEATRE presents the World Premiere of Up and Away October 11, 2015 at the Goldman-Sonnenfeldt Family Auditorium General Mischief Dance Theatre presents the World Premiere of Up and Away - Dances for all Hours. Performances will take place on October 11 at 1pm and 6pm at the Goldman-Sonnenfeldt Family Auditorium, JCC Manhattan, 334 Amsterdam Avenue, NYC. Tickets are $25 ($20 in advance, $15 for students and seniors, $10 for children 10 and under) and are available at www.BrownPaperTickets.com or by calling (212) 714-4694. The program highlight is a collaboration with actor and sculptor Kevin Reese, who shares his talents with schools and communities across the country. Reese will be designing and making an overhead mobile that General Mischief will assemble and then elevate in the course of the dance. Thanks to generous support from the D.C. Commission on the Arts and Humanities, the mobile he produces is going to be built in Washington, D.C. by hundreds of volunteers as part of the Atlas Arts Center's "Mobilizing Our Community" project. More information about the project can be found here: http://www.atlasarts.org/mobilizing-our-community/. The piece is set to music by flautist/composer Donna Viscuso from San Francisco. Choreographer Emily Smyth Vartanian will use some of Viscuso’s songs from Vnote as well as a score Viscuso wrote with General Mischief in mind, called Milo's Ballet. The process will be guided by creative consultant and director Amanda Friou. General Mischief Dance Theatre is dedicated to reinforcing the power that joy and laughter have in communicating ideas. The company's mission is to create and present theatrical dance works that engage audiences emotionally, socially, and kinesthetically. Combining aerial work with more earthbound forms of movement, the company removes spatial and physical limits from theatrical dance. The program will also include a new suite of dances, The Love Trio, featuring the music of Paul Tillotson and Suite Shel, a one-act suite of dances inspired by the poems of Shel Silverstein, choreographed by Madeline Hoak, Celine Rosenthal, and Emily Smyth Vartanian, and set to the music of Lizzie Hagstedt. The cast includes Jane Abbott, Ellen Henry, Madeline Hoak, Wendy Lechuga, Saki Masuda, Jaisson Restrepo, Andrea Steiner, and Emily Smyth Vartanian. “Question: What’s the difference between a performance by General Mischief Dance Theatre and entertainment at a child’s birthday party? Answer: Nothing. Except that the party isn’t just for children, the performers are highly competent dancers, and you go to see them at a theater. And it’s much better… Intelligent silliness….entertainingly performed.” – Ballet-Dance Amanda Friou is a Brooklyn based director and multidisciplinary artist whose highly theatrical and intellectually rigorous work is distinguished by the organic and inclusive process by which she develops productions. She is particularly interested in non-traditional creative collaborations. Favorite directing projects include the NY premiere of Naomi Wallace’s No Such Cold Thing and a site specific production of Martha Boesing’s Pimp which she also designed. She has worked nationally at ART, La Jolla, CTG, The Guthrie, Asolo Rep, Geva Theatre Center, and the University of Iowa, and in NYC for Ars Nova, NYU, HERE, and Second Stage; including assisting directors Jo Bonney, Henry Wishcamper, and Tony winner Warren Carlyle. An accomplished puppet builder, she also frequently collaborates with puppeteer Basil Twist. In 2013, her production of Avenue Q was a KCACTF honoree. Friou is a 2011 Drama League Fall Directing Fellow, and is devising a puppetry infused dance/theatre piece as one of their 2015 Resident Artists. She is also a member of the 2015-2016 St. Ann's puppet lab where she is collaborating with puppeteer Kate Brehm on an abstract puppet show about technology and theoretical math.

Since 2001 Donna has introduced San Francisco elementary school children to multi-cultural music experiences through the Adventures in Music (AIM) program, sponsored by the San Francisco Symphony. Donna studied music at San Francisco State University and Laney College and traveled to Venezuela to further her musical studies. While there, she performed and recorded with several renowned musicians including percussionist Alexander Livinalli and members of the Fundacion Bigott (Venezuela’s Folkloric Institute). In addition she has recorded with Venezuelan musicians Aquiles Baez, Gonzalo Grau, Marco Granados, and Leo Blanco. Emily Smyth Vartanian is a lifelong dancer and has produced dance events for over fifteen years. She loves moving, telling stories with movement, and merging different dance vocabularies to tell each story in the most effective way. Her training facilitates this multi-lingual approach; she is a graduate of the Dance Concentration in the World Arts and Cultures program at UCLA as well as a student of Ann Reinking’s Broadway Theatre Project, the Diavolo Intensive workshop, and the Oakland Ballet. Her choreography has been presented nationally at venues ranging from the Freud Playhouse, Kaufman Hall, Highways Performance Space, and the House of Blues Sunset Strip in Los Angeles to Manhattan Movement and Arts, the JCC, Alvin Ailey, the Connelly Theater, Theater for the New City, The Zipper Theater, Medicine Show Theater, and the Kumble Center for the Performing Arts in New York. Her work ranges from more grounded contemporary movement and body music to the airborne styles of Lindy Hop and rope harness and bungee. As a producer, she is a graduate of multiple Commercial Theater Institute programs, including the 14-Week Program, as well as a member of the production team for the 2009 Frankie 95 Celebration at the Manhattan Center and the New York residency of Kybele Dance Theater among other projects.

ABOUT GENERAL MISCHIEF General Mischief Dance Theatre was founded informally in 2004 as an artistic collaboration between performer/choreographer Emily Smyth Vartanian, rigger/lighting designer Mark Baker and sound designer/choreographic advisor Adam Vartanian. The company was formally incorporated in 2008 in the interest of actively producing theatrical dance pieces that reinforce the power that joy and laughter have in communicating ideas, as well as to encourage the natural human desire to express oneself through movement. The company has previously presented interactive events at Manhattan Movement and Arts Center, The Connelly Theater, Theater for the New City, New York City Center Studios, and The Zipper Theater, amongst other venues. They have also been invited to perform at the JCC, Dance Manhattan, and Brooklyn's Kumble Theater as well as numerous festivals and special events. The company has received multiple grants from the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council to support the presentation of their interactive dance adventures. For more information, please visit www.generalmischief.com. ABOUT THE JEWISH COMMUNITY CENTER MANHATTAN Founded in 1989, the JCC's early volunteer programs included JCC Works, a citywide social action day involving over 500 volunteers who worked at schools, shelters, parks, AIDS residences, soup kitchens, and hospitals; The Gift of Literacy, a 10-year partnership with New York City’s P.S. 75—Emily Dickinson School where volunteers mentored 2nd graders at-risk for reading; Partners for Literacy and Early Bird, where JCC volunteers read to children to stimulate interest and enjoyment of reading; and SeniorNet, a program bringing seniors together to learn computer skills. By 2000, the JCC offered more than 400 programs a year. The JCC's Samuel Priest Rose Building at 76th Street and Amsterdam Avenue opened in January 2002, enabling the JCC to better serve the community through its powerful design and innovative programming. The 137,000 square-foot, 14-story, state of the art building created opportunities to celebrate and participate in all aspects of life.

Zullo/RawMovement presents The Architecture of Proximity at the Theater at the 14th Street Y October 28-November 1, 2015 Zullo/RawMovement presents The Architecture of Proximity at the Theater at the 14th Street Y from Wednesday – Saturday, October 28-31, 2015 at 8 p.m. and Sunday, November 1, 2015 at 3 p.m. at the 14th Street Y, 344 E. 14th Street, 10003, NYC. Tickets are $30 ($25 for students and seniors) and can be purchased at www.14streety.org, by calling (646) 395-4310, or in person at the 14th Street Y. The Architecture of Proximity is presented in association with the Dance Series at the 14th Street Y. The Architecture of Proximity combines elements of post-modern dance, voguing, gestural, and impulse generated movement. It is an immersive dance work that explores the relationship between architectural spaces and their physical and psychological effects on the body. The work examines what happens when the proximity between audience and performer is erased and investigates how boundaries and borders define a sense of “ownership” of self and space. Zullo uses the collected essays in Space & Psyche, edited by Elizabeth Danze and Stephen Sonnenberg from the Center for American Architecture and Design at The University of Texas at Austin, to further consider how spaces effect the body both physically and psychologically. Composer David Engelhard creates an original and interactive sound score that responds to the performers’ choices. The Architecture of Proximity was performed alongside Mana Hashimoto’s Stories of Blind-Light, Shadow and Wind on January 29, 2015 at FLICfest at the Irondale Center. RawMovement dancers: Bong Ian Dizon, Sarah Eichler, Hana Goldstone, Heidi Morgan, Jillian Sawyer, and guest performers Brittany Beyer, Nicole Loeffler-Gladstone, Liz Little, Dale Ratcliff, Kat Sullivan. Collaborators: Visual Artist Sarah Crespo, Composer David Engelhard, Visual Technology Artist Kat Sullivan "Zullo awakens all of the senses through the experiential nature of The Architecture of Proximity." — Dance Enthusiast "Dance enthusiasts look for innovation and a style that delivers something new to the art. In their weekend performances at Danspace Project at the St. Mark's Church, Zullo/RawMovement did just that with unique choreographies and passionate performers.” — Marina Kennedy, Broadway World "Zullo is to be applauded for bringing his work and his collaborators’ contributions to us so creatively.” — Times Square Chronicles “John's choreography clothes elements of contemporary dance in a gritty patina; the edgy aspects of his style are well-expressed by his dancers, and while the movement is always well- mapped-out there is also a feeling of spontaneity in each dancer's unique delivery of the steps and gestures.” — Philip Gardner, Oberon's Grove John J Zullo is originally from the Bronx, New York and currently resides in NYC. He graduated from American University in 1996 with a B.A. in Anthropology and 1999 with an M.A. in Dance. John danced with many artists while at American University. While there, he performed in a work by Ohad Naharin, presented his choreography at Dance Place in Washington, D.C. and was awarded the Arts Club of Washington’s Award for Outstanding Choreographer 1999. In January 2010 Zullo/RawMovement began performing at various venues in NYC. Zullo/RawMovement was one of six artists selected for FLICfest 2015 at the Irondale Center in Fort Greene, Brooklyn. There they premiered The Architecture of Proximity, an evening length immersive work where the boundary between performer and spectator is erased. Zullo/ RawMovement presented the Memory Suite evening of works at the Dance Complex in Cambridge, Massachusetts in June 2014 where it was a Boston Globe pick of the week. Zullo/RawMovement presented its 2013 season at Danspace Project at St. Mark's church as part of the Dance:Access series. The evening of works, the Memory Suite, included "this Exquisite diversion/mysterious Skin" (2013), "ALL what THIS do HAS you HAPPENED see? BEFORE" (2012), & project Xiii (2013).
