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. This season, New York Theatre Ballet continues to provide a platform for female choreographers with a new work by former New York City Ballet dancer Antonia Franceschi and a NYTB Premiere by Martha Clarke. Franceschi’s new piece is inspired by the history of Danspace Project at St. Mark's Church-in-the-Bowery and will be performed there in October, with original music by Claire Van Kampen. The pas de trois from The Garden of Villandry by Martha Clarke, who was heavily influenced by Antony Tudor, will be shown with Tudor's Fandango, Les Mains Gauches and the pas de deux from Romeo and Juliet at the 92Y Harkness Dance Festival in February 2017.

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.

Place as address, as geography, as territorial attachment. Community. Taking Place was also conceived as a means to reference civil rights and liberation movements, of inclusiveness. Taking one’s place at a time when the notion of equity is equally as climacteric.

Porter's "Firebird" at The Theatre at Meydenbauer Center March 24-26, 2017 with Orchestra Bellevue performing Stravinsky's famous and much-loved score under the baton of Music Director/Conductor Philip Tschopp. Tyranny, Subjugation, Addiction and ultimately Hope are some of the themes explored in "Firebird" by Porter's contemporary take on this (neo) classical ballet dating back to the era of Diaghilev's Ballet Russes. The story is of Ivan, a man who innocently stumbles into a world of evil and corruption that is ruled by a cruel leader through trickery and intimidation. In the struggle to navigate his way through this ugly place, Ivan's fate allows an encounter with the "Firebird", a beautiful, magical creature that he is drawn first to pursue and capture, but then set free, unaware that she would later rescue him from having become part of the darkness and evil of his environment.

Brooklyn, NY-- Doug Varone and Dancers return to BAM to celebrate 30 years of visionary work with three dances representing the past, present, and future of the company. The program comprises a revival of the Philip Glass-scored Possession (1994) and the New York premieres of ReComposed (2015) and Varone's latest work, Folded (2016). Possession, inspired by A.S. Byatt's century-spanning novel of the same name, is set to Glass' beautiful Concerto for Violin and Orchestra. Eight dancers, in duets, explore the facets of relationships, as the emotional and physical balance of the work shifts between each pair. ReComposed is a whirlwind of color and careening movement, inspired by the pastel paintings of abstract expressionist Joan Mitchell and set to Michael Gordon's propulsive Dystopia. Folded, an intimate duet set to a score by MacArthur Fellow Julia Wolfe, explores the questions and contradictions inherent in our personal beliefs and faiths. Award-winning choreographer and director Doug Varone works in dance, theater, opera, film, and fashion. His work is known for its emotional range, kinetic breadth and the diversity of genres in which he works. Commissions include the Limón Company, Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, Rambert Dance Company (London), Martha Graham Dance Company, Dancemakers (Canada), Batsheva Dance Company (Israel), Bern Ballet (Switzerland) and An Creative (Japan), among others. In addition, his dances have been staged on more than 75 college and university programs around the country. He has staged multiple premieres and new productions for the Metropolitan Opera, Minnesota Opera, Opera Colorado, Washington Opera, New York City Opera, and Boston Lyric Opera, among others. His productions at the Metropolitan Opera include Salome, the world premiere of Tobias Picker's An American Tragedy, Stravinsky's Le Sacre du Printemps, and Hector Berloiz's Les Troyens. His theater credits include choreography for Broadway and off-Broadway, including the MASTERVOICES production of Dido and Aeneas at NY's City Center and Manhattan Theatre Club's Murder Ballad. Varone received his BFA from Purchase College where he was awarded the President's Distinguished Alumni Award in 2007. Numerous honors and awards include a Guggenheim Fellowship, an OBIE Award (Lincoln Center's Orpheus and Euridice), the Jerome Robbins Fellowship at the Boglaisco Institute in Italy, two individual Bessie Awards, three American Dance Festival Doris Duke Awards for New Work, and four National Dance Project Awards. In 2015, he was awarded both a Doris Duke Artist Award and the Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Dance Guild. He is currently on the faculty at Purchase College, where he teaches composition and choreography. For press information, please contact Christian Barclay at cbarclay@BAM.org or 718.724.8044.

What for? Why not? - Guest curated series by Peter Kyle March 30 - April, 1, 2017 & April 6 - 8, 2017 Muriel Schulman Theater at Triskelion Arts 106 Calyer Street, Brooklyn, NY 11222 All shows are at 8pm Tickets: $18 in advance / $22 at the door Ticket Packages: 2-Day Pass for $30 / 3-Day Pass for $40 (*Packages must be purchased online and in advance.) Purchase: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/triskelion-arts-presents-guest-curated-series-peter-kyle-tickets-31895323772 "What For? Why Not?" is a series of six one-of-a-kind, shared-evening events over two weekends celebrating the capricious, the changeable, and the variable by juxtaposing dance, music, spoken word, and visual art. Curator Peter Kyle (Artistic Director/Choreographer, Peter Kyle Dance) pairs wide-ranging, respected artists together to encourage dialogue, to share contrasting whimsies and artistic compulsions, and to bring audiences from different areas together in one spot, if for no other reason than simply to see what happens. If the results include some gentle pushing against real and perceived disciplinary boundaries, all-the-better. Kyle selected these artists for the uniqueness of their vision and for their exquisite artistry. In most cases, these artists do not know each other and have been invited to intersect their material in any way they choose, if at all. WEEK I Thursday, March 30: Caleb Nussear (visual art) / Ryan Keberle (music) Friday, March 31: Martin Dockery (spoken word) / JJ Sulin (visual art) Saturday, April 1: Holley Farmer (dance) / Scott Giguere (spoken word) WEEK II Thursday, April 6: Jaanika Peerna, Christine Sciulli & Qian Yi (visual art-movement-music) / Jason Walker (music) Friday, April 7: Patti Bradshaw (dance) / Vienna Carroll & Keith Johnston (music) Saturday, April 8: Michael Bellar (music) / Marielis Garcia (dance) PROGRAM INFORMATION: Thursday, March 30, 2017: The What For? Why Not? series opens with a visual-acoustic installation and performance featuring visual artist Caleb Nussear and musician Ryan Keberle. Nussear’s intricate folded paper screens emblazoned with slide projections inspire Keberle’s live trombone, analog synthesizer, and pre-recorded music composed especially for this event. Friday, March 31, 2017: Well-traveled solo performer and playwright Martin Dockery shares the evening with photographer and installation artist, JJ Sulin. Dockery’s The Dark Fantastic, described as "an incredible feat of storytelling" by the CBC, is a wild, darkly humorous tale of an artist trying to “make it big.” Sulin’s Acey Deucey transforms the Triskelion Arts stage into a mixed- media installation of photography and objects that balance the ephemeral with the everyday. Saturday, April 1, 2017: The closing performance of Week I features Bessie Award winning dancer Holley Farmer and actor-director-marathon runner, Scott Giguere. Farmer presents a dream state solo investigation of Homer Proteins and memory-making, while Giguere offers For Miles, a solo piece about the mechanics, psychology, and metaphysics of running and geolocation. Thursday, April 6, 2017: Week II of the What For? Why Not? series kicks off with a program showcasing the multi-disciplinary team of Jaanika Peerna, Christine Sciulli & Qian Yi, and “folk-soul” singer-songwriter Jason Walker. Walker employs his velvety-smooth, honey-sweet voice in readings, music and spontaneous stage commentary to address the question: why do we obey laws written for our own destruction? Estonian artist Peerna, award-winning light installation artist Sciulli, and Chinese opera star Yi merge light, voice, and drawing to create an environment in constant stretch and flux punctuated by questions and quest of truth. Friday, April 7, 2017: Choreographer and puppeteer Patti Bradshaw shares the evening with singing storyteller duo, Vienna Carroll and Keith Johnston. Bradshaw’s Flowers in Space uses dance, puppetry, and slide projections in a solo for dancer Valerie Striar inspired by the turn of the twentieth century painter, poet, set designer, and subtle social commentator Florine Stettheimer, (1871-1944). In Folk First: Black Roots Music, Carroll as griot and Johnston as guitarist celebrate the spirituals, work songs, prison blues, and sea shanties of antebellum African Americans, and their links to contemporary artists like Biggie Smalls and Pharrell Williams. Saturday, April 8, 2017: Closing night of the What For? Why Not? project features exuberant dancer-choreographer Marielis Garcia and never-the-same-way-twice pianist, Michael Bellar. Garcia offers a solo inspired by Stan Douglas's photograph Shoes, and Bellar, playing solo, uses every limb of his body to create as much rhythm, melody, and harmony in one live moment as possible.

This spring, the Department of Dance at Case Western Reserve University will continue its 2016-2017 season with Prisms, a thesis concert featuring MFA candidate Tingting Zhou, and guest choreographers and alumni Ziying Cui and Dani Dowler. This performance will run March 30th, 31st and April 1st at 8pm, and April 2nd at 2:30pm. About the Works Concrete Jungle, an ensemble work Zhou premiered in December 2015, reveals a common dilemma often experienced by those living in the city. Individuals seek recognition for their accomplishments; however, their success is quickly swallowed up by the fast-paced and competitive modern society. Zhou will perform Alluring Flame, a solo set to music by Long Zhou that has been developing throughout her time here at CWRU. The work comes from the kinetic inspiration of the costume—a red skirt and a long braid. The solo figure slowly reveals her femininity and untamed wildness. Also premiering on this concert is Entangled Cave, a duet by Zhou who used her background knowledge of computer science to integrate the use of media technology into the choreography. This work, set to Bartok’s Music for Strings, Percussion and Celesta, BB 114: III. Adagio, tells the story of an evil creature beguiling a woman for dominance. Performers for this piece are Zhou and first year graduate student Xiaomeng Zhao. Guest choreographer Ziying Cui completed her MFA in Dance at CWRU in 2016. She is restaging Rite, which re-imagines an ancient Chinese ritual that had been recorded as Nine Songs by the ancient Chinese poet Qu Yuan around 239-278 BC. Set to music by Matthew Burtner and Nancy Hennings, the dance features graduate dance students as well as undergraduate dance majors. Dani Dowler, who earned her MFA in Dance from CWRU in 2014, will be restaging a quartet titled Sensemaya la culebra to music by Silvestré Revueltas. Dowler’s four female dancers explore energetic, athletic movements, and rhythmic and dynamic variations while drawing on strong inspirations from Revueltas' music and the Nicolas Guillén poem that inspired it. Ticket Information Tickets are $7 for students with ID, $10 for adults 60+ and CWRU personnel, and $15 for general admission. Reservations are recommended, and may be made by calling (216) 368-5246 or online at dance.case.edu/reservations.

The U.S. Department of Defense has called climate change “an urgent and growing threat to our national security, contributing to increased natural disaster, refugee flows, and conflicts over basic resources such as food and water.” For this performance, individuals were interviewed and stories of flight, migration, climate and barriers have been recorded. Whether an environmental scientist, bird watcher, fisherman, outdoor hobbyist or National Zoo employee, these short statements demonstrate a very personal connection to the changing environment. Images emerge of the grandeur of Death Valley, the severity of the Mojave Desert, the species of the Audubon Rockies, simplicity of vernal pools, or the sophistication of fish ladders. For the performance, these voices from the community share experiences of nature or climate. Layered with music and made visual through movement and art, the performance brings forward very personal relationships to the creatures on earth, adaptations and changes. Audiences will participate in aspects of defining the performance space as guide ropes mark off boundaries, creating limitations. Dawn Whitmore adds brief video statements drawn from words and phrases provided by individuals who have told their stories. On Opening Night, Friday March 31 @ 7:30 pm and Closing Night, April 8 @ 7:30 pm, the audience treks to the nearby New District Brewing Company to conclude the performance in a new setting. $25 Apr 1, Apr 7 @ 7:30 pm $28.50 Mar 31, Apr 8 @ 7:30 pm (includes a beer ticket for one full pour (14 oz.), light buffet) Tickets 15% OFF use code FLIGHT thru Mar 28

With the technical facility of hip hop, the sophistication of the glory days of the Cotton Club, the flash of Rat Pack era Las Vegas, and elements of vaudeville, robot, tap, and mime, The Wondertwins create a distinctive style all their own. To Hip-Hop, with Love is made up of three separate pieces: Broadway to Hip-Hop, Sounds of Movement, and L.OV.E. With an eclectic soundtrack of music ranging from legendary rappers Busta Rhymes and KRS One, to the classic voice of Sammy Davis Jr., and even poetry from Maya Angelou, To Hip-Hop, with Love offers a kaleidoscopic view of African-American entertainment traditions. Former Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre executive director Judith Jamison has praised The Wondertwins as absolutely beautiful, strong, powerful, and electricmade for Broadway and Maurice Hines noted that the identical twins "dance in the same spirit as the great brothers of dance before them. Six-time winners of Showtime at The Apollo Theater, The Wondertwins have appeared with Maurice Hines Club Harlem and toured internationally with Bobby Browns Dont Be Cruel in the UK, and Purple Rains Apollonias Since I Fell For You tour in Singapore. http://www.dancecomplex.org/PressReleases/2017-PR-Wondertwins.htm

Triskelion Arts Presents... Vangeline Theater April 20 - 22, 2017 at 8pm Triskelion Arts’ Muriel Schulman Theater 106 Calyer Street, Brooklyn, NY 11222 – Enter on Banker Street Tickets: $16 in advance, $20 at the door Purchase: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/triskelion-arts-presents-vangeline-theater-tickets-30044256179 Triskelion Arts is pleased to remount Butoh performance piece, Wake Up and Smell the Coffee, by Vangeline Theater this April in the Muriel Schulman Theater. The company seeks to increase environmental awareness in New York and nationally, resulting in a positive impact on our ecosystem, and as a key component has scheduled the production to coincide with Earth Day on April 22nd. Wake Up and Smell the Coffee utilizes the intensity of the Butoh art form to convey a serious problem: the environmental repercussions of non-recyclable waste. The tradition and techniques of Butoh are rooted in an art form that has the power to bring us back to our humanity and become closer to the Earth through meditative and hypnotic movement motifs. This includes uncomfortable truths we need to face, such as confronting the “garbage,” or grotesque parts of our society. The performers will literally dance through garbage; a set made of collected unsalvageable coffee cups. This initiative will serve to increase environmental awareness in New York City through dance and have a tangible impact on our ecosystem. Currently, Americans are responsible for a staggering 58% of the paper cup consumption in the world. NYC counts 212 Starbucks, 454 Dunkin Donuts, and 974 other coffee shops for a total of 1,700 coffee shops within the five boroughs. This results in a daily mountain of non-recyclable coffee cup trash, which, for the most part, ends up in a landfill. There are 4,100 coffee shops in the Tri-State area alone, which represents an estimated 14 million cups that New Yorkers will generate over the next 10 years. The paper cups used at coffee shops across NYC are laminated with a plastic resin, polyethylene, which helps keep beverages warm and prevents leaking, but also prevents the cup from being recycled. Once in a landfill, the paper begins to decompose, releasing methane, a greenhouse gas with 23 times the heat-trapping power of carbon dioxide. This issue is directly linked to the threat of global warming. Wake Up and Smell the Coffee originally premiered at Triskelion Arts in 2015. It included a set made of 1,500 used, disposable coffee cups, illustrating the extensive amount of non-recyclable waste generated by society. Since that performance, the state of waste in New York hasn't changed for the better, so a revised and amplified 2017 version, now featuring New York Butoh star Vangeline backed by a company of nine members from Vangeline Theater, will expand the reach of the work’s message with new choreography, performance elements, and panel discussions with environmental scientists such as Paul Bartlett, Environmental Services Consultant and scholar in residence at St. Peter’s University. The show will inspire audience members to make a positive lifestyle change. Vangeline Theater will partner with the public education program GreeNYC, and will have audiences sign pledge forms online. Programs will be printed on recycled materials. Sustainable, bpa free, recycled and recyclable durable mugs will be available at each performance to encourage the discontinuation of buying and disposing coffee cups.

Critically-Acclaimed ArtBark International Reprises Alma.Sama in Los Angeles and Santa Barbara April 29-30, 2017 Santa Barbara, CA, February 27th, 2017 The multigenerational performing arts collective ArtBark International, with seasoned dance artists hailing from California, New York and Slovenia, will reprise their dance theater work Alma.Sama at Arc Pasadena on April 29, 2017 at 7:30 pm and the Gail Towbes Center for Dance in Santa Barbara, CA on April 30, 2017 at 6:00 pm. Ticket prices are $5 kids, $10 adults and $100 angel patrons. For detailed ticket and venue information, please see http://www.artbark.org/tickets. Alma.Sama is a visual and sonic feast for audiences of all ages, with original music by Stephen Kelly, costumes by Misa Kelly, and projections by the company. The evening-length work premiered to sold-out audiences and was presented by Slovenia’s leading cultural center the Cankarjev Dom in Ljubljana in June 2015. Described as “sophisticated dance poetics with expressive depth and superior movement vocabulary,” and “subtle, intellectual, sophisticated” by the Slovenian publication Parada Plesa, Alma.Sama celebrates the life of Slovenian traveler and revolutionary Alma Karlin (1889-1950) in an energetic and lush non-linear dance theater work. Alma.Sama serves as a timely and relevant story as Karlin was a visionary who shed all that she had been reared to believe as the "right" course of action for a woman of her standing. The Slovenian polyglot, world traveler, painter, theosophist and author of numerous books sacrificed comfort and convention in favor of an often subsistence-level life with the people of South America, India, Japan, and the South Pacific in the years after the First World War. Celebrated for saying, “An eagle must mate in the air or fly alone,” Karlin believed in the power of empathy and embraced the unknown exposing herself to new ways of thinking and understanding cultures and people around the world. Alma.Sama commemorates this historical figure while exploring what the physical and emotional fibers of a visionary might embody today. The project began as a “seed” idea in 2012 when ArtBark was on tour in Europe. While at the Celje Library in Slovenia, they met with dramaturg Marijan Pušavec who dreamt of creating a dance theater work based on the life of Alma Karlin. Inspired by Pušavec’s passion, together they set out to make his vision manifest. In 2015 — after three years of creative development, which included sharing early sections of the work with communities in Connecticut, New York, Santa Barbara, and Los Angeles ¬—ArtBark ventured to Slovenia for the final leg of research with a one month residency to visit historical sites relevant to Alma M. Karlin, to dialog with historians, and integrate of their findings into an evening-length work. Alma.Sama. is a co-production between ArtBark International, Cankarjev Dom Slovenia, and House of Culture Celje. The West Coast performances are supported by the Ministry of Culture Slovenia, Slovenian Embassy in Washington and Ministry of Foreign Affairs Slovenia. Hubbard Collective joins ArtBark as guest artists at ARC Pasadena. Closing the evening with their dynamic work Sacred Matters, the company gives voice to the harsh reality of being Black in America. In Santa Barbara, Nebula Dance Lab will share a work-in-progress created specifically for this project by their Artistic Director Devyn Duex, producer of the HHII Festival.
