175 Eighth Avenue New York, NY 10011
New York, New York

  • May 29 @ 07:30 PM - 09:30 PM

May 29 through June 2 Works by José Limón, Colin Connor, Francesca Harper Dancers: Jacqueline Bulnes, Terrence Diable, Angela Falk, David Glista, Gregory Hamilton, Jesse Obremski, Eric Parra, Frances Samson, Savannah Spratt, Lauren Twomley, Mark Willis, Mariah Gravelin (apprentice) Guest Artists: Miki Orihara, Stephen Pier, Nona Hendryx Company Rehearsal Director: Logan Frances Kruger "Limón is a pillar of American modern dance.  The work of the Mexican-born choreographer is celebrated for its proud nobility, palpable spirituality and high drama."                                                                                  Brian Schaefer, The New York Times, Oct. 2015   Now in its 73rd year, the Limón Dance Company continues to garner fresh interest for its performances of both new works and American classics.  The May 29-June 2 season at The Joyce Theater will feature two Limón classics: The Moor's Pavane and Psalm, along with The Weather in the Room by company Artistic Director Colin Connor; and Radical Beasts in the Forest of Possibilities by guest choreographer Francesca Harper, with an original score composed and performed live by Nona Hendryx. Limón's seminal work The Moor's Pavane, drawn from Shakespeare's Othello, has been in the repertories of major companies around the world, including American Ballet Theatre, Royal Danish Ballet, and the Paris Opera Ballet.  The revered quartet was created in the form of a Pavane and other dances of the high Renaissance, and set to music by Henry Purcell.  "Limón had a theatricality and a gift for stylistic invention.  Just think of The Moor's Pavane and gasp," wrote Clive Barnes in Dance Magazine , 2007.  Former Limón principal dancer Clay Taliaferro, who danced the Moor under Limón's tutelage, has directed the work with a deep knowledge and intensity.  In 1965 Limón wrote that the artist's function was "to be the voice and conscience of his time."   This belief was fully realized in his towering Psalm, (1967), remounted and set to a newly commissioned score by Jon Magnussen.  Psalm takes as its point of departure the premise that according to ancient Jewish belief, all the sorrows of the world rest upon 36 men.  In translating this into dance, the 36 men have been reduced to one, a striking figure of pure nobility.  With this work, originally remounted by Carla Maxwell, the Company celebrates her 38 years as Artistic Director. Company Artistic Director Colin Connor will premiere his witty and atmospheric The Weather in the Room, featuring the powerful and mature guest artists Miki Orihara, longtime Martha Graham Dance Company soloist, and Stephen Pier, former soloist with the Limón Dance Company, the Hamburg Ballet, and the Royal Danish Ballet. The digital world envelops the dancers in Radical Beasts in the Forest of Possibilities by guest choreographer Francesca Harper, created in collaboration with the iconic composer/performer Nona Hendryx, who will perform live.  The creators brilliantly capture uncertainty and nervous energy, and the desire underneath it all to make real human contact.

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.
