Flatlands Dance Theatre Presents Collide: Redux April 25th and 26th, 2014 at 8:00 pm Firehouse Theatre - LHUCA 511 Avenue K Lubbock, TX Flatlands Dance Theatre will inspire and entertain viewers with an innovative concert of collaborations between choreographers, dancers, musicians, visual artists, multimedia artists, and even circus artists. Collide: Redux will be presented in the Firehouse Theatre at the Louise Hopkins Underwood Center for the Arts on Friday, April 25th and Saturday, April 26th, 2014 at 8:00 pm. Ticket prices include a $3 Select-a-seat surcharge, and are $20 general admission and $12 for students with ID and seniors. Tickets can be purchased online at www.selectaseatlubbock.com or by calling Select-A-Seat at (806) 770-2000. Belong- Choreographer Valerie Komkov Hill and photographer Naomi Hill explore the human need for nurturing and acceptance through a mother/daughter relationship, and explore the yearning of loss and need for reconnection. Photographic images are used to enhance the sense of community and belonging, as well as the fear of isolation and rejection. Music by Sinead O’Connor and Alt-J is featured. Please remove your shoes - Choreographer Emily Winton explores the idea of shoes “coming alive” and controlling the dancers’ movement with the inspiration of different music. The dancers move through space wearing a variety of shoes while making connections with each other and the shoes they wear. Emily collaborated with three musicians: Andy and Emily Wilkinson will play the banjo and the fiddle, and Connor Leggot composed an original song specifically for the piece with a Flamenco flair called Hommage a Turina. Everything is Under Pressure – Choreographer Ali Duffy and composer Seth Warren-Crow devise a collaboration of dance and music using sculptor William Cannings’s inflated compressed metal sculptures as both the atmosphere and inspiration for the movement and sound. Both music and dance describe the visual and audible effects of the process of creating these sculptures that suspend over the dancers’ heads - compressed air on permanent materials such as aluminum and steel result in a paradox of heavy metal and light appearance. Catherine, a solo created collaboratively by Suzanne Aker and Kyla Olson, explores the historic life and death of Saint Catherine of Alexandria. The solo, performed by Olson, is accompanied by a hauntingly beautiful choral work of French composer Francis Poulenc. Daily Shuffle: Choreographers Kyla Olson and Sarah Mondle collaborate with videographer Matt Schlief and musician Joy Harris to explore music’s influence on our everyday lives. We shuffle our feet as we move through our days to the rhythm of life. Courage to move. In this piece, the dancers delineate what is like to break out of metaphorical boxes in which we have all find ourselves in. Through the exploration of combining dance and the exciting world of circus aerial work, the performers are afforded the opportunity to break free from the box, so much so that the ground is no longer enough. The dancers take to the air, reaching higher, pushing harder to find themselves again. It is here we see that "Courage is not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it." Choreographer Molly Roberts and the dancers worked with Richard Oaxaca exploring ground work and release work as well as circus to prepare for this piece. Nine Months – In this multimedia solo, choreographer Genevieve Durham DeCesaro and projection designer Matthew Schlief offer critical commentary on the expectations and realities of being pregnant. Using humor to infuse the images and movements, Durham DeCesaro invites the audience to experience some of the highlights of those nine, long months. Nivedita is a tribute to the beloved Sister Nivedita also known as Margaret Noble. With original live music by Curtis Peoples and friends and choreography by Rachel Ure, this piece depicts one woman's devotion to truth, service, and the education and elevation of the women of India.

kNEW kNOW throws us into a world of known and unknown. It proposes that each moment is new, that what we know and what is now may not agree, and that the truths we have established for ourselves – from instinct, social interactions, family, culture, affinity, imagination or experience – may not be true at all. This work proposes that it is our inherent human curiosity and need to question that pushes us to continue to explore and identify our own unique perspectives. kNEW kNOW asks: what is concrete and what is not?; what can we learn that is new and what can we never know?; what do we like to think we know?; and what do we wish we knew now? This is a project balanced between individual dream and reality, gut and regret, past and present, and the inevitability of chance and change.

"Flamenco star Carolé Acuña brings the soul of Spain to San Francisco" - Peter Fish, Sunset Magazine Lugo is a woman with complicated memories and sorrows When she dances, she conveys depths of melancholy, devilishness or joy through the apt placement of her torso. The tilt of her ribs, for example, is just right to create that essential image of dignity, slight arrogance and emotional daring without which Flamenco is just another collection of steps and tunes. As a musician she's equally sophisticated, inhabiting the music in the middle of every beat, with a command that is neither haughty nor proud, but self-assured, at ease. She dances the way some French cookwith what appears to be a graceful inevitability discovered on the spot." ~ Ann Murphy, Dance Critic for Dance View West Magazine "It is when Lugo and her daughter Carolé Acuña dance together that the women unearth a new dimension in dance..." ~ Ann Murphy, Oakland Tribune For additional information please contact Manager Richard Tonkin 510-504-4448 For additional information please contact Manager Richard

Watching them, we seem to pass from ego to id, from conscious into unconscious, and they seem to embody changing states of post-traumatic feeling.» THE NEW YORK TIMES RACHID OURAMDANE – L’A Danseur-acteur multimédia, Rachid Ouramdane est diplômé du prestigieux Centre National de Danse Contemporaine d’Angers. En 2007, il fonde sa propre compagnie, L’A, dont le travail conjugue la danse au documentaire.

Loin… : 24 au 26 avril 2014 Rachid Ouramdane enquête et fouille le carnet militaire de son père, un conscrit algérien enrôlé par l’armée française durant l’occupation coloniale en Indochine. Pour ce solo autobiographique, le chorégraphe utilise le texte et le reportage et lie l’Histoire à son histoire personnelle. Quête identitaire au pays du tigre, Loin… (2008), œuvre provocatrice et exaltante, émeut jusqu’à la moelle. Multipliant les identités, Ouramdane captive comme un prisonnier condamné.

So brace yourself for a night when the well worn hardwood floors of Pachamama resonate with the pulsating sounds of footwork, song, castanets, syncopated hand clapping and guitar. If you have not seen this group, this is an opportunity to experience their high energy and passion for their art that defines a new dimension in Flamenco and Spanish dance traditions.Carolina and her daughter Carolé offer a special evening for a date night, family gathering, or get together with friends and co-workers. "Flamenco star Carolé Acuña brings the soul of Spain to San Francisco" - Peter Fish, Sunset Magazine “Lugo is a woman with complicated memories and sorrows… When she dances, she conveys depths of melancholy, devilishness or joy through the apt placement of her torso. The tilt of her ribs, for example, is just right to create that essential image of dignity, slight arrogance and emotional daring without which Flamenco is just another collection of steps and tunes. As a musician she’s equally sophisticated, inhabiting the music in the middle of every beat, with a command that is neither haughty nor proud, but self-assured, at ease. She dances the way some French cook—with what appears to be a graceful inevitability discovered on the spot." ~ Ann Murphy, Dance Critic for Dance View West Magazine "It is when Lugo and her daughter Carolé Acuña dance together that the women unearth a new dimension in dance..." ~ Ann Murphy, Oakland Tribune Best to arrive 30 minutes before show times for seating.

All existence is in a complex dance of energy and vibrations, continuously moving and evolving. Dance is perhaps the best way of describing and understanding life, the cosmos, and ourselves. The How Weird Street Faire showcases the full spectrum of electronic dance music styles, using advanced sound technology to fill the streets of San Francisco with the vibrations of peace and the frequencies of fun. There will be 10 stages of some of the best music, art, and sound systems in the galaxy, produced by some of the best sound collectives in the universe. Art has a way of reaching the farthest places. This year, How Weird will expand Art Alley and move it to Tehama Street. Come create at the new location, and enjoy the live and exhibited artwork and interactive Art Alley mural. Art Alley is curated by ArtIsMobilUs, a non-profit mobile public art gallery and roving arts incubator bringing art to humans everywhere. There is a $10 requested donation at the entrances to the faire, for which you will receive a Magic Sticker. The Magic Stickers are worth hundreds of dollars in savings, and come with many free things. There will be discounts and specials at all of the vendors at the faire, and all of the faire bars. The Magic Stickers are how people can support the faire, while getting something great back in return. Check the website for all of the Magic Sticker specials. The How Weird vendors offer many unique and creative goods for sale, including designer clothing, jewelry, art, decorations, games, and more. And there will be plenty of tasty food and drinks. This year will also feature local arts and crafts vending on Art Alley. Costumes are required at How Weird. Come as yourself. Come as someone else. Come as something weird. Be the you you've always wanted to be. Space-related costumes are big this year. The faire is open to all ages, and is handicapped accessible. The main entrance is at Howard and New Montgomery Streets, a short walk to MUNI, BART, the Transbay Terminal, and Caltrain Station. For those arriving from above, the coordinates are 37°47’12.4″ N, 122°23’53.7″ W. Join us as we journey through the cosmos in search of new and exciting experiences, expanding our perspective to the universal scale. The How Weird Street Faire is a project of the non-profit World Peace Through Technology Organization, showing that in spite of our differences, we all dance to the same beat.

General Mischief Dance Theatre presents its spring performance, Rascals with Altitude. Performances will take place from April 25 – May 4 at The Connelly Theatre, 220 East 4th Street, NYC. Tickets are $20 in advance for general admission ($25 at the door, $15 for students and seniors, $10 to children ten and under) and are available at https://www.artful.ly/store/events/2754 or by calling (212) 714-4694. Performances: Friday, April 25 at 8pm; Saturday, April 26 at 8pm; Sunday, April 27 at 5pm; Friday, May 2 at 8pm; Saturday, May 3 at 3pm and 8pm; Sunday, May 4 at 3pm. Appropriate for ages 4 and up. 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 includes: Suite Shel, a one-act suite of dances inspired by the poems of Shel Silverstein, choreographed by Celine Rosenthal, Pushpanjali Sharma, and Emily Smyth Vartanian Duel, an interactive bungee duet, choreographed by Emily Smyth Vartanian Duel is a face-off between rival baseball fans (Yankees v. Red Sox). They appear to have made peace by the time flying balls are added to the equation, but the very end of the dance calls that notion into question. Buzz, choreographed by Emily Smyth Vartanian Buzz is a multi-part, caffeinated cityscape of a dance. It shows the dancers slowly waking up in the morning, then features them interacting with various objects typical to the morning commute - coffee cups, books, and cell phones - as well as each other. The majority of the time, they pass each other by, unnoticed, but as the piece goes on they begin to connect with each other. The next section, lit only by the dancers’ cell phones, takes place late at night and shows the dancers "connected" electronically, but not connected to the individuals they are supposedly spending time with. This production will feature performers Jane Abbott, Dare Harlow, Gautam Nima, Pushpanjali Sharma, Andrea Steiner, and Emily Smyth Vartanian, with direction by Celine Rosenthal, and music from Grammy® winning Ozomatli, Led Zepagain, and composer Lizzie Hagstedt. “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

Are you in need of a sultry Spanish night or a boheiman adventure? So brace yourself for a night when the well worn hardwood floors of Pachamama resonate with the pulsating sounds of footwork, song, castanets, syncopated hand clapping and guitar. If you have not seen this group, this is an opportunity to experience their high energy and passion for their art that defines a new dimension in Flamenco and Spanish dance traditions.Carolina and her daughter Carolé offer a special evening for a date night, family gathering, or get together with friends and co-workers. In the heart of Walnut Creek's downtown Stelle Bistro is a dinning adventure a fusion of traditional and modern Italian cuisine designed by Chef Hugo for your dinning pleasure. A wine list,from all around the world. Stelle,located on the corner of Cypress and Locust at 1403 Locust St, walking distance from Century Theaters, Lesher Theater,BART and Broadway Plaza. Low cost parking is available at the city's garages, just a half block south on Locust Street. "Flamenco star Carolé Acuña brings the soul of Spain to San Francisco" - Peter Fish, Sunset Magazine Lugo is a woman with complicated memories and sorrows When she dances, she conveys depths of melancholy, devilishness or joy through the apt placement of her torso. The tilt of her ribs, for example, is just right to create that essential image of dignity, slight arrogance and emotional daring without which Flamenco is just another collection of steps and tunes. As a musician she's equally sophisticated, inhabiting the music in the middle of every beat, with a command that is neither haughty nor proud, but self-assured, at ease. She dances the way some French cookwith what appears to be a graceful inevitability discovered on the spot." ~ Ann Murphy, Dance Critic for Dance View West Magazine "It is when Lugo and her daughter Carolé Acuña dance together that the women unearth a new dimension in dance..." ~ Ann Murphy, Oakland Tribune For additional information please contact Manager Richard Tonkin 510-504-4448 For additional information please contact Manager Richard

Ticket prices are $16-$25 and can be purchased at www.Lakewood.org/Tickets, 303-987-7845 or at the Lakewood Cultural Center Box Office, 470 S. Allison Parkway.

Danced to the magnificent score by Leo Delibes first performed in 1870, with choreography by Ilena Norton, Gregory Gonzales, and Oleg Dedogryuk. In this original ballet, Dr. Coppelius is an eccentric toymaker who falls in love with his creation, the dancing doll Coppelia. Swanilda sneaks into his toy shop full of life sized modern day dolls, including a ballerina, pirate, and teddy bear. She and her friends hide the doll Coppelia, and Swanilda dresses up as Coppelia and tries to fool both her boyfriend Franz and Dr. Coppelius with hilarious and touching results. The choreographers blending of traditional steps such as the Mazurka and Csardas with contemporary movement adds to the excitement. Audiences of all ages will be captivated by this beautiful and entertaining ballet.

"Flamenco star Carolé Acuña brings the soul of Spain to San Francisco" - Peter Fish, Sunset Magazine “Lugo is a woman with complicated memories and sorrows… When she dances, she conveys depths of melancholy, devilishness or joy through the apt placement of her torso. The tilt of her ribs, for example, is just right to create that essential image of dignity, slight arrogance and emotional daring without which Flamenco is just another collection of steps and tunes. As a musician she’s equally sophisticated, inhabiting the music in the middle of every beat, with a command that is neither haughty nor proud, but self-assured, at ease. She dances the way some French cook—with what appears to be a graceful inevitability discovered on the spot." ~ Ann Murphy, Dance Critic for Dance View West Magazine "It is when Lugo and her daughter Carolé Acuña dance together that the women unearth a new dimension in dance..." ~ Ann Murphy, Oakland Tribune Contact Carolina Lugo for additional information about classes, workshops, and bookings at 415-933-9391 carolinalugo1@msn.com or visit her website at www.carolinalugo.com For additional information please contact Manager Richard Tonkin 510-504-4448

Triskelion Arts is proud to present TOTALLY OTHER, a premiere collaborative work by the creative duo Abby Bender and Cassie Tunick. Drawn into a first alliance in a room that will soon be destroyed, the performers investigate what they really want from each other and what they are missing. With dances stolen from ritual, songs borrowed from nature, and a vow of simplicity, secret exchanges grounded in physical humor become a social event. Join them and their multiple personalities at the end of an era as they are lit by random flashes of a playful mind and held together by stubborn perseverance.
