Ballet des Amériques Announces Westchester Wednesday Dance - A New Performance Series at the Tarrytown Music Hall French-American choreographer Carole Alexis and her Ballet des Amériques dance company bring a rich and sprawling repertoire to the Tarrytown Music Hall in a new series called Westchester Wednesday Dance. These weekday evenings of dance offer audiences a break in the workday routine and a chance to witness the original work of the Music Hall’s company in residence. As a student of Maurice Béjart, Alexis’ choreography is rooted in classical ballet training and tradition while drawing on influences as disparate as children’s games, island rituals, natural phenomena, and modern urban life. Her dances entice and charm the viewer with elements of humor, psychological insight and surprise. Her company’s extensive and eclectic repertoire bears her distinctive signature and vision, reinvigorating “ballet” for new audiences and dance connoisseurs alike. Performances are scheduled for October 10, 2018, 7PM; February 20, 2019, 7PM; April 24, 2019, 7PM; June 26, 2019, 7PM. Tickets for all four performances of the season are available at: https://tickets.tarrytownmusichall.org/eventperformances.asp?evt=2164 For the first performance of the series, Ballet des Amériques will present evolved versions of Lentil Soup, Macouba and Nos ici et d’ailleurs. Westchester Wednesday Dance is made possible in part by ArtsWestchester with support from the Westchester County Government. Established in 2011 under the directorship of French-American choreographer Carole Alexis, Ballet des Amériques, as its name implies, inserts itself into the French cultural heritage of the Americas. Composed of classically trained dancers of diverse backgrounds, the young company has already danced the choreography of Carole Alexis in over 60 public performances beginning with its debut at the Festival de Fort-de-France in Martinique in 2011. As the resident dance company of the Tarrytown Music Hall, Ballet des Amériques is building on the success of its Evenings of Dance series to develop a regional dance audience in Westchester and neighboring counties. With its local roots and international orientation, the company is poised to grow its audiences beyond dance connoisseurs to reach those who have never been exposed to this art and especially young people, in conscious fulfillment of the educational function of dance in the spirit of Maurice Béjart.

In Freemove Dance’s debut evening-long work …it’s time… everyone is literally “on the clock.” The piece, choreographed by Jenn Freeman, is conceived as a meditation on each individual’s intricate relationship to time. The work features five dancers whose performances are both constrained and propelled by the presence of a large digital timer, inexorably counting down towards zero. The evocative live drum score, composed by Dani Markham (Childish Gambino), serves as the soundtrack to the dance conceived as a metaphor of a lifetime – one long, cinematic take in which performers transition through changing ambiances, styles, and energies. The work features five dancers: Maddison Burg, Mia DeWeese, Matt Luck, Christopher Ralph, and Chelsea Thedinga. Dani Markham’s score for the piece will be performed live by Price McGuffey. The lighting design of the piece is by the 2010 Bessie-winner Philip Treviño (awarded for his work on Pam Tanowitz’s Be In The Gray With Me) and costumes are designed by Mondo Morales (known for his work with Alvin Ailey II.)

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 THURS, OCT 11: Zehnder Dance / VALLETO FRI, OCT 12: Emily Climer / Zehnder Dance SAT, OCT 13: VALLETO / Joan Bradford SUN, OCT 14: Joan Bradford / Emily Climer ABOUT THE WORK “fresh meat” by VALLETO explores the desires and curiosity that arise during adolescence. It explores the extremities of the flesh and the impulses of the body. We juxtapose adolescence and adulthood in an unconventional structure. While dismantling a body to express a potent female sexuality. (Note: This piece contains nudity.) Joan Bradford premieres "Sidelines", a collaborative group work respectfully driven, inspired, and fueled by the lyricist, J. Cole. Through analysis of J. Cole’s profound text, the project will physicalize a variety of poetic works with themes of self-affirmation, self-actualization, self-reflection, and its often impact, compromise, and subsequent downfall. As a metaphor for the sidelines one is often placed on, the piece will use a foldable, manipulatable bench, aspiring to create an abstract narrative of individuals who conflict with such ideas; dealing with the great manipulation of this sideline: how one can remove themselves but how often they are unable to. “Phantoms ghost phantoms” by Emily Climer is a dance of sustained disorientation. Two duet worlds collide in space and time, connected by states of unknowing, feelings of being unsettled, and sudden attempts at searching for order. In this dreamscape, the performers cope with physical forces outside of themselves, both real and imagined. 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.

Through Spanish and Mexican dance, song and music The Alborada Spanish Dance Theater presents a The Mexican Connection, a dazzling production of live dance, song and music from Spain and Mexico. Spain's encounter with indigenous civilizations in Central America during its 16th-century imperial expansion created music and dance representing a merging of Spanish and New World styles. These multicultural mixtures of European music with New World rhythms and melodies are the roots of Latin American traditional music. The shared roots of Mexican and Spanish Gypsy Flamenco and Galician dance and music come alive on stage with passion, power and beauty! This program is made possible in part by funds from the Middlesex County Board of Chosen Freeholders and Office of Culture & Heritage Commission though a grant from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts. The theater at Middlesex County College is made available through the generosity of Johnson & Johnson.

Winners of the Eryc Taylor Dance New Choreographer Grant (ETD/NCG), Jordan Ryder, Kanon Sapp and Melanie Ramos, will present new choreography to premiere in two showcase performances on Saturday, October 13 at 7pm and 8:30pm. The ETD/NCG grant provides funds to young, aspiring NYC-based choreographers to create and present a new dance work. Winners use their ETD/NCG funding for choreographic-based needs, such as securing dancers, finding rehearsal space, costuming and more. The choreographers are in complete control of their creative process, with Eryc Taylor available for advice and guidance. Grant applicant criteria included the submission of a concept that had not yet been choreographed or performed; to have never before independently directed an evening-length production; and to have graduated with a degree from a certificate, undergraduate, or graduate school. Applicants also had to demonstrate dance training, choreographic style, and vision for a 15-20 minute performance (including at least two dancers), plus financial need. ETD/NCG program is fully funded by a generous grant from the Marta Heflin Foundation. The Eryc Taylor Dance New Choreographer Grant program is celebrating the fifth year since its inception. OCT. 13 PERFORMANCE LINEUP: MELANIE RAMOS will present “Counterpoint,” with five dancers, three male and two female. The piece will explore the repetitiousness of life with a subsequent rebirth inspiring relationships, opportunity and a new mindset. Music: Electric Counterpoint composed by Steve Reich (Parts I, II and III) JORDAN RYDER will present “Railways,” with six dancers, three male and three female. Railways is an abstract exploration on barriers, and how they affect us on a physical and emotional scale. KANON H. SAPP will present “VEIL” with three dancers, one male and two female, to the music of Eartha Kitt and Antonio Vivaldi. VEIL is a contemporary performance art/ensemble work examining the complex interplay between female identity and social value systems, as embodied in the structure and function of a veil. The use of a veil to conceal the female face, mask a woman's sexuality and to shield a mourner's emotion, is explored.

277 Dance Project’s newest work, Cardboard Stage, a cross-media work featuring dance, video, live music, and spoken word, is a culmination of a two-year collaborative experiment in urban immersion. Having spent an extensive period of time in the Bronx, exposed to a vibrant and gritty urban landscape, the choreographer Nicole Philippidis and her performers were compelled to delve into social inequities still plaguing the American metropoles. The resulting work is a story about power and powerlessness, told in six chapters, focusing on different facets of urban life in the shadows of what lies in the glamourous spotlight of the mainstream media. The piece features a dance film by Jennifer Klein. Original music and sound score for Cardboard Stage, created and performed live by Nicole’s brother John Philippidis (of the award-winning indie folk band Burlap to Cashmere,) captures the stark industrial mood of the inner city. The six-person cast includes longtime company member Mika Yanagihara as well as dancers Stephen Galberth, Christopher Makens, Elisa Schreiber, Emily Tellier, and Eric Parra.

Cardboard Stage, a cross-media work featuring dance, video, live music, and spoken word, is a culmination of a two-year collaborative experiment in urban immersion. In 2016, Nicole Philippidis and her performers teamed up with cinematographer Jennifer Klein for a dance film, shot in a working perfume factory in The Bronx. Unexpectedly thrust into a diverse urban landscape – vibrant and gritty in equal measure – the choreographer was compelled to delve into social inequities still plaguing the American metropolis. The resulting work is a story about power and powerlessness, told in six chapters, focusing on different facets of urban life in the shadows of what lies in the glamorous spotlight of the mainstream media. How does the privilege and lack of accountability perpetuate the status quo? How does the experience of disenfranchisement affect the sense of self-worth, but also the possibility of communicating with and relating to others? In close creative collaboration with a diverse cast of performers, Philippidis – a native New Yorker and a keen observer of Big Apple’s intimate moments of communion and loneliness – tackles these questions. The resulting piece works as a mirror, asking the viewer to examine challenges facing the society based on a trickle-down power structure in a city overrun by gentrification and a country struggling to acknowledge and deal with the racial and economic rifts. The title of the piece alludes both to a homemade protest sign and to a makeshift performance area one sees in the streets of New York City. “When I think of cardboard, I think of all the people who boldly and bravely use it to build a platform to be heard,” explains Nicole Philippidis. Original music and sound score for "Cardboard Stage", created and performed live by Nicole’s brother John Philippidis (of the award-winning indie folk band Burlap to Cashmere), captures the stark industrial mood of the inner city. The soundtrack – which will be played live at every performance – is colored with rhythmical percussion, keyboard, and guitar. Intense physicality of Nicole Philippidis’ choreography is sculpted against the immersive video environment created by Jennifer Klein, who has been collaborating with the company on this project since its very inception in 2015. The six-person cast includes longtime company collaborator Mika Yanagihara as well as dancers Stephen Galberth, Christopher Makens, Elisa Schreiber, Emily Tellier, and Eric Parra. ABOUT THE COMPANY Under the direction of Artistic Director/Choreographer Nicole Philippidis, 277 Dance Project creates emotionally driven work, exploring the balance between chaos and stillness, the intersection of lives, and the eternal human struggle to connect and to survive. We begin making work from a thematic strand, which over time branches out into multiple ideas, intensely explored and deconstructed until they coalesce in the realm of physicality and imagination. We work with both improvisational and fixed scores to establish intricate relationships between movement, soundscape, and film. Through the process, we uncover and highlight the very essence of empathy: what makes us care for other people, feel compassion, love, responsibility, and loss. What makes us human?

The Minnesota Ballet opens its 2018-19 season with Robert Gardner’s vision of “Rite of Spring,” to Igor Stravinsky’s monumental score, compelling in its primal force and themes of ritual and renewal. Contrasting the visceral “Rite of Spring,” Salvatore Aiello’s “Senza Fretta” (“without worry”) mirrors life’s joys and simplicities in moves athletic, frenetic, and witty—all to music by the Kronos Quartet’s “Pieces of Africa” and “Mai Nozipo” and set by Jerri Kumery, Curator of the Salvatore Aiello Trust. Exciting new works by talented emerging choreographers round out this dynamic evening of dance.

We are excited to find this collaboration with Carole Alexis and Ballet des Amériques, whose quality, cultural knowledge and artistic vision brings world-class art to our family series and holiday season programming.” Carole Alexis, for her part, explains that her interest in creating a Nutcracker was to bring families and friends together around the essence of what the story represents, namely, the beautiful balance between Marie’s childhood playfulness and her coming of age in the midst of her own circle of family and friends – an objective that dovetails nicely the Emelin’s program. Under the directorship of French-American choreographer Carole Alexis, Ballet des Amériques, has been staging productions at the Emelin Theatre since 2012.

This sunny ballet will enchant the whole family with its lively story set in a tiny European village a century or so ago. Spunky Swanilda loves Franz, but he falls for a beautiful mechanical doll made by the reclusive toymaker Dr. Coppélius. When Coppélius captures Franz, Swanilda poses as the doll to free Franz from the toy workshop where he is held captive. Spirited villagers dance. An experiment explodes. Toys whirl out of control. The entire village turns out for a wedding.
