    and

    The Alice-in-Wonderland Follies

    at Schimmel Center

    April 28-30, 2017

    Schimmel Center presents New York Theatre Ballet (NYTB) Uptown/Downtown/Dance at Schimmel Center, 3 Spruce Street, NYC, on Friday and Saturday, April 28 and 29, 2017 at 7:30pm and The Alice-in-Wonderland Follies! on Sunday, April 30, 2017 at 3pm.

    The Uptown/Downtown/Dance program will include an as-yet-untitled World Premiere from Martin Lawrance and the World Premiere of Painted Within by Zhong-Jing Fang, as well as a restaging of former NYTB resident choreographer Edward Henkel’s ReVision, created in 1986, with music by Edvard Grieg, Holberg Suite op. 40 (1884). A 2013 NYTB commission, Short Memory by Pam Tanowitz, is set to live music by Lou Harrison and Henry Cowell and helps set up Ms. Tanowitz’s brilliant use of stage space.  The evenings include two more pieces by Ms. Tanowtiz: Light Moving, set to music by David Lang, and Double Andante, a 13-minute ballet for ten dancers set to the Andante movement of Beethoven’s Sonata in D Major #15, which will be played live on piano two times at different tempos. Tickets are $29 and are available at SchimmelCenter.org.

    The Alice-in-Wonderland Follies program follows Alice’s adventures through Wonderland as she meets some of the most beloved characters in children’s literature.  Presented in a vaudeville setting, this eclectic ballet draws on many different dance forms – from Irish Step Dancing to African Juba to classical ballet – all of which combine to make a highly entertaining show. Choreography by Keith Michael, Costume Design by Sylvia Taalsohn Nolan, and Décor Design & Painting by Gillian Bradshaw-Smith.  Tickets are $10 for children and $20 for adults and are available at SchimmelCenter.org.
