San Francisco's Flyaway Productions and the Sing Sing Prison Museum present Jo Kreiter's "The Wait Room," a performance installation that exposes the physical, psychic, and emotional burden of incarceration for women with imprisoned loved ones. Via a large rolling set designed by Sean Riley to evoke a prison visiting room, the project invokes the balancing act women have to maintain when stripped of emotional and economic support from their partners and family. The company from San Francisco will give four free-to-the-public performances at a site next to Sing Sing Correctional Facility. Choreography is by company director Jo Kreiter, recipient of a 2019 Guggenheim Fellowship and the first choreographer named as a Robert Rauschenberg Foundation 2017 Artist as Activist Fellow.

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

"Thoughts & Prayers" is a new dance-theatre work with a palpable activist heart. Through a gripping exploration of America’s relationship with tragedy, catastrophe, and loss, this thought-provoking world premiere aims to harness the power of hope, individual action, and a call for change.

Through this new dance-theatre concerto of equal parts music, movement, and theatre, we take a journey with Dana and Felix, as the couple experiences five Disasters. In a dramatic mix of original, virtuosic music, partnering, dialogue, and unique staging, six musicians (woodwinds and strings) are active participants in the performance. embody two distinct Greek Choruses: Congress and The Activists, giving full voice to the political clashes of present-day. This collaboration between artists of completely different disciplines creates a complex, elegant, disruptive world brought to life by creator/director Lauren Hlubny and composer/performer Thomas Giles.

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

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

BALLET HISPÁNICO  in collaboration with THE APOLLO THEATER presents The World Premiere of  Annabelle Lopez Ochoa's Tiburones A Restaging of Nací by Andrea Miller Con Brazos Abiertos by Michelle Manzanales November 22-23, 2019 at 8:00pm Ballet Hispánico, the nation's premier Latino dance organization, returns to the Apollo stage on Friday and Saturday, November 22 and 23, 2019 at 8:00pm with a program that continues its commitment to staging works by female, Latinx choreographers. Ballet Hispánico is sponsored by GOYA, which has sponsored the company since 1977.    In the World Premiere of Tiburones, Anabelle Lopez Ochoa reimagines the world of the street gang, The Sharks (from the award-winning musical West Side Story) from a Latinx and gender fluid perspective. Ochoa will embrace non-gender specific roles while deconstructing stereotypes and giving new life to an ever appropriated cultural icon.   In this restaging of Nací (2009), choreographer Andrea Miller draws from the duality of her Spanish and Jewish-American background and employs her distinctive movement style to investigate the Sephardic culture of Spain, with its Moorish influence and profound sense of community, despite hardship.   Con Brazos Abiertos (2017) is a fun and frank look at life caught between two cultures. Michelle Manzanales utilizes iconic Mexican symbols that she was reluctant to embrace as a Mexican-American child growing up in Texas, to speak to the immigrant experience. Intertwining folkloric representations with humor and music that ranges from Julio Iglesias to Rock en Español, the work brings life to a Latino dilemma. "We are thrilled to bring the World Premiere of Annabelle Lopez Ochoa's Tiburones to the Apollo Theater. Ballet Hispánico is dedicated to providing arts programming that is accessible to community members of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds and we are grateful for this continued partnership with the Apollo, allowing us another opportunity to elevate the voices of Latinx and female artists,"said Artistic Director & CEO Eduardo Vilaro.

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 (Artistic Director & CEO) 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 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. Mr. Vilaro was inducted into the Bronx Walk of Fame in 2016 and was awarded HOMBRE Magazine's 2017 Arts & Culture Trailblazer of the Year. In 2019, Mr. Vilaro was the recipient of the West Side Spirit's WESTY Award, was honored by WNET for his contributions to the arts, and most recently, was the recipient of the James W. Dodge Foreign Language Advocate Award.    About the Apollo Theater  The legendary Apollo Theater-the soul of American culture-plays a vital role in cultivating emerging artists 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, spoken word, and more. This includes special programs such as the blockbuster concert Bruno Mars Live at the Apollo, 100: The Apollo Celebrates Ella, the annual Africa Now! Festival, the New York premiere of the opera We Shall Not Be Moved, and the world premiere of Between the World and Me. The Apollo is a performing arts presenting organization that also produces festivals and large-scale dance and music works organized around a set of core initiatives that celebrate and extend the Apollo's legacy through a contemporary lens; global festivals including the Women of the World (WOW) Festival and Breakin' Convention, international and U.S.-based artist presentations focused on a specific theme; and special projects, multidisciplinary collaborations 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 D'Angelo, Lauryn Hill, H.E.R., Machine Gun Kelly, Miri Ben Ari, Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Billie Holiday, James Brown, Gladys Knight, Luther Vandross, and Stevie Wonder; and the Apollo's forward-looking artistic vision continues to build on this legacy.   About GOYA Founded in 1936, Goya Foods, Inc. is America's largest Hispanic-owned food company, and has established itself as the leader in Latin American food and condiments.
