Theater For The New City’s Tenth Annual Dream Up Festival @ Theater for the New City
Aug 25 – Sep 15 all-day

Theater For The New City Sets Its Tenth Annual Dream Up Festival

August 25 – September 15, 2019

All events at Theater for the New City, 155 First Ave. (at E. 10th Street)

NEW YORK, July 28 — From August 25 to September 15, 2019, Theater for the New City (TNC), under the direction of Crystal Field, Artistic Director, will present its tenth annual Dream Up Festival, a feast of adventurous theater mixing world premieres and New York premieres. It’s an ultimate new work festival dedicated to the joy of discovering new authors and edgy, innovative performances.

The Festival lineup follows below.

Helmed by the theater’s Literary Manager, Michael Scott-Price, the festival offers 27 plays. Audiences will savor the excitement, awe, passion, challenge and intrigue of new plays from around the country. There are two musicals, four plays on the African-American experience, two plays on pregnancy and motherhood, four plays of political content set in the dystopian future, two solo shows and two two-handers. A new translation is offered of Strindberg’s proto-Freudian masterpiece, “The Father.” Critics are invited to all stagings of all plays in the festival.

Theater for the New City has consistently been the most inexpensive theater of its caliber and it continues its commitment to affordable tickets with this festival. Dream Up Festival tickets are $12-$20 for the participating productions.

The festival does not seek out traditional scripts that are presented in a traditional way. It selects works that push new ideas to the forefront, challenge audience expectations and make us question our understanding of how art illuminates the world around us.

Michael Scott-Price (Curator/Festival Director) has directed in New York City at venues including Chashama, Dixon Place and Collective Unconscious. He has written and directed productions that were presented nationally as well as in Canada, Ireland and England. Currently, he is also Curator of TNC’s “New City, New Blood” reading series and “Scratch Night” (works-in-progress). He is Artistic Director of an experimental theater company, Asteroid B612 Theatre Company, which made its debut in the 17th Annual HERE American Living Room Series in August 2006. He has studied at the School of Physical Theatre in London, England, at the Odin Teatret in Hostelbro, Denmark and in the International School Theatre Anthropology (ISTA) in Wroclaw, Poland with Eugenio Barba and company. He is an alumnus of Lincoln Center Theater Director’s Lab. He is a member of the Board of Directors of Theater for the New City.

Theater for the New City (TNC) maintains a distinctive commitment to high artistic values and community service. In an effort to make theater accessible to all, TNC presents an assortment of distinct, exceptional events each year, including the Lower East Side Festival of the Arts, which celebrates the artistic and cultural diversity of TNC’s Lower East Side community; an annual Village Halloween Ball and an annual summer Street Theater tour that presents a free, live, original musical in thirteen neighborhoods in all five boroughs. Most of these are free of charge to the public.

Theater for the New City is located at 155 First Ave., at East 10th Street.

“THE ASSASSINATION OF J.KAISAAR, THE DESTRUCTION OF MARKO T AND KLEOPATRA AND THE RISE OF AUGUSTUS,” BY STEPHAN MORROW
September 9 at 9:00 PM, September 10 at 6:30, September 11 at 6:30 PM, September 12 at 9:00 PM, September 14 at 2:00 PM, September 15 at 8:00 PM (Johnson Theater)

Stephan Morrow set out to dramatize the unintended consequences of political assassination and out popped an epic fantasy, drawing on Plutarch, Shaw, Shakespeare and other sources. Since power struggles today so resemble Mafia wars, it’s somewhat like “The Sopranos” meets “Mad Max,” written in uber-contemporary language with vestiges of the Bard. The theme is that political assassination can have unintended consequences and should be considered as the least effective solution to political conflict if a free citizenry is valued above all else. The irony of history, you see, is that the democratic impulse to save the Roman republic by unseating Julius Caesar ushered in the age of Octavius, who governed so well that his system of authoritarianism lasted over 200 years, creating a heyday of empire.

An agoraphobic mass shooting survivor must choose between her shut-in lifestyle and a life where she can do more than survive with the development of her sister’s wedding, the return of her father’s terminal illness and her relationship with a mysterious man that she communicates with via a carrier pigeon.

Is celebrity worship, in itself, Theater of the Ridiculous? “EEEEEEEEE,” written and directed by Emily Abrams, would have you think so. Emilia, Emily, Emmy and Eleanor belong to polyamorous cult that praises Ellen DeGeneres as its god, but are set on their collective heads when their idol rejects them. The piece, performed in Playhouse of the Ridiculous style, holds a mirror up to the crazyness we tolerate in TV culture and the celebrity racket..

“THE FATHER” BY AUGUST STRINDBERG, NEWLY TRANSLATED BY ROBERT GREER

The Dream Up Festival offers Robert Greer’s brand new translation of Strindberg’s 1887 tragedy, in which a wife uses her erotic influence over her doctor and her readiness to claim that her family lawyer is her child’s father to drive her husband into madness. The play offers a proto-Freudian explanation of the unreasonable hatred that can exist between husbands and wives. Greer’s translation mines the hidden sexual meanings in the original Swedish dialogue (bowdlerized in many translations) that seem to drive the play.

The National Ballet of Canada:
Orpheus Alive by Robert Binet and Missy Mazzoli

Sunday, September 15, 2019 at 3:00 pm

Works & Process, the performing arts series at the Guggenheim, presents The National Ballet of Canada: Orpheus Alive by Robert Binet and Missy Mazzoli, moderated by Wendy Whelan on Sunday, September 15, 2019 at 3:00 pm.

Orpheus Alive retells the tragic myth of Orpheus, casting the titular character as a woman; Eurydice, Orpheus’ fallen lover, as a man; and audience members as gods of the underworld who hold Orpheus’s fate in their hands. Choreographed by Robert Binet, Choreographic Associate of The National Ballet of Canada, and featuring a commissioned score by acclaimed composer Missy Mazzoli, Orpheus Alive is a story of love, loss, and an extraordinary artist facing the limits of his mortality. Company dancers and the Mivos Quartetperform excerpts, and New York City Ballet Associate Artistic Director Wendy Whelan moderates a discussion with Binet, Mazzoli, and dramaturg Rosamund Smallabout the creative process before the ballet’s world premiere in Toronto.

Robert Binet was born in Toronto, Canada and was appointed Choreographic Associate of The National Ballet of Canada in June 2013 following eighteen months as The Royal Ballet Choreographic Apprentice. Binet has created The Dreamers Ever Leave You, The Sea Above, The Sky Below, Self and Soul, The Wild Space Between Two Hearts, These Worlds In Us and Unearth for The National Ballet of Canada since joining the company in 2013. He also created Orpheus Becomes Eurydice, a co-production between The National Ballet of Canada and the Banff Centre. Robert spoke and presented excerpts of Orpheus Becomes Eurydice at TEDxToronto 2015. Prior to joining the company, Robert created numerous works for The National Ballet of Canada’s Choreographic Labs and the YOU dance apprentice programme, and a new work for The National Ballet of Canada’s 60th anniversary gala in June 2012. Binet was selected by Artistic Director Karen Kain as her protégé for the 2017 Governor General’s Performing Arts Awards Mentorship Programme. One of Binet’s most recent creations for The National Ballet of Canada was an immersive ballet titled The Dreamers Ever Leave You. It premiered in August 2016 at the Art Gallery of Ontario and was hailed as “a thrilling and affirming victory for the art form” by The Globe and Mail. This followed the world premiere of Terra Incognita, a site- specific ballet with an originally commissioned story featuring dancers from top international ballet companies, for Binet’s project-based company Wild Space.

Grammy-nominated composer Missy Mazzoli was recently deemed “one of the more consistently inventive, surprising composers now working in New York” (The New York Times) and “Brooklyn’s post-millennial Mozart” (Time Out New York). Mazzoli is the Mead Composer-in-Residence at the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, and her music has been performed all over the world by the Kronos Quartet, eighth blackbird, pianist Emanuel Ax, Opera Philadelphia, Scottish Opera, LA Opera, Cincinnati Opera, New York City Opera, Chicago Fringe Opera, the Detroit Symphony, the LA Philharmonic, the Minnesota Orchestra, the American Composers Orchestra, JACK Quartet, cellist Maya Beiser, violinist Jennifer Koh, pianist Kathleen Supové, Dublin’s Crash Ensemble, the Sydney Symphony and many others. In 2018 she made history when she became one of the two first women (along with composer Jeanine Tesori) to be commissioned by the Metropolitan Opera. That year she was also nominated for a Grammy in the category of “Best Classical Composition” for her work Vespers for Violin, recorded by violinist Olivia De Prato.

One of the top international ballet companies, The National Ballet of Canada was founded by Celia Franca in 1951 and is the only Canadian ballet company to present a full range of traditional full-length classics. The company’s repertoire includes works by the world’s most celebrated 20th and 21st century masters, Sir Frederick Ashton, George Balanchine, John Cranko, Rudolf Nureyev, John Neumeier, William Forsythe, James Kudelka, Wayne McGregor, Alexei Ratmansky, Crystal Pite, Christopher Wheeldon, Aszure Barton, Guillaume Côté and Robert Binet.  In addition to its classical repertoire, the company also embraces contemporary works and encourages the creation of new ballets and the development of Canadian choreographers.

Jody Sperling/Time Lapse Dance 2nd Annual Spot for Dance Festival @ West Side of Broadway between 100th & 101st Streets
Sep 20 all-day

Jody Sperling/Time Lapse Dance
in conjunction with Community Board 7/Manhattan
presents

2nd Annual Spot for Dance Festival

A Movement Site Activation and Community Zone

Friday, September 20, 2019
2:00 – 7:00 pm

Jody Sperling/Time Lapse Dance, in conjunction with Community Board 7/Manhattan presents the 2nd Annual Spot for Dance Festival, a Movement Site Activation and Community Zone, on the occasion of both International Parking Day and the Global Climate Strike on Friday, September 20, 2019 from 2-7pm. The location is four curbside parking spaces on the West Side of Broadway between 100th & 101st Streets. All programs are free. For more information visit: http://timelapsedance.com/events/parkingday2019.

Parking Day is an annual global event where citizens, artists, and activists transform curbside parking spots into public space. By drawing attention to the allocation of city land to private car storage–a hidden-in-plain sight subsidy for CO2-emitting vehicles–Parking Day helps the public creatively imagine a more sustainable and vibrant future.

Global Climate Strike is a widespread demand for action to address the urgency of the climate catastrophe. Climate Strike events are aimed to disrupt our disastrous “business as usual” mentality and to serve as a wake-up call for transformational action.

Community Zone 100/101. In the space of a single parking spot, Community Board 7/Manhattan volunteers provide a vital gathering hub for neighbors and visitors to share information about sustainable urban design, recycling, tree planting, and climate education resources. The zone features engagement activities for children as well as awareness building and climate mobilization networking for adults.

Spot for Dance activates a streetscape that is normally occupied by static vehicles with living, breathing, bodies, awakening a range of sensations and movement experiences. The festival features performances by host company Jody Sperling/Time Lapse Dance as well as the Sokolow Theatre/Dance Ensemble, choreographers Aviva Geismar and Nicole McClam. There will be free public workshops led by master teachers Daria Fain (Qigong) and Naomi Goldberg/Dances for a Variable Population. Performance and workshop themes explore climate change, social justice, age/ability, and gender/racial identity. Understanding the intersectionality of the climate crisis is critical to a stated goal of the Climate Strike of “raising awareness in their communities and pushing for solutions to the climate crisis that have justice and equity at their heart.”

Jody Sperling/Time Lapse Dance’s work focuses on the dynamic relationship of the moving body and the world we inhabit. In a new site-specific dance, Grid, with a score by composer/musician Glen Fittin, seven dancers tumble parallel to the rushing traffic of Broadway. Within this concrete sliver of a streetscape, the choreography melds images of a ghostly wilderness with the present-day urban ecology. Sperling also continues her collaboration with cellist Scott Johnson creating a sonic site-specific improvisation that playfully interweaves the cello’s plaintive wails with passing sirens. Lastly, the company reshapes excerpts from Wind Rose, Sperling’s breath-filled collaboration with acclaimed environmental composer Matthew Burtner. This work visualizes local and global wind patterns which are being dramatically altered along with climate change. The Time Lapse Dancers are Frances Barker, Morgan Bontz, Carly Cerasuolo, Anika Hunter, Andrea Pugliese, Deuana Robinson, and Indah Walsh.

The Sokolow Theatre/Dance Ensemble (STDE) presents excerpts from the great 20th century choreographer Anna Sokolow who brilliantly brought social consciousness to her work. The company performs excerpts from three masterworks. “Rooms” portrays the psychic isolation and unfulfilled desires of people living in the big city. From Three Poems, STDE presents a quartet for four women alluding to the timeless archetype of sirens. Lastly, the ensemble revives a suite of three solos from the 1930s and 40s that still resonate powerfully today: Lament for the Death of the Bullfighter; Ballad (in a popular style); and Kaddish.

Aviva Geismar performs a new solo work-in-progress Trembling between Poles, addressing the fear and anxiety of the individual caused by our current geopolitical crises. Nicole McClam shares her solo, It’s All Good Hair, which makes space for a conversation between a black woman and her hair. The piece examines American history, pop culture, and personal narratives to explore how black women are socialized to value Eurocentric beauty standards.

Spot for Dance also offers participatory experiences for people of all ages and abilities. Fain teaches Qigong workshop, sharing a series of movements to create fluidity in the body and re-energize the mind. Dances for a Variable Population, led by founder and artistic director Naomi Goldberg Haas, present “A taste of MOVEMENT SPEAKS®,” the signature program promoting strong and creative movement for adults of all ages and abilities to improve mobility, balance, strength, connection, joy, and creative mastery. The event closes with a Solidarity Action Jam in which the artists, volunteers and the dance together in celebration and solidarity with the climate movement.

BIOGRAPHIES

A dancer-choreographer from NYC, Jody Sperling is the Founder/Artistic Director of Time Lapse Dance. She has created 40+ works including many furthering the legacy of modern dance pioneer Loie Fuller (1862-1928). Considered the preeminent Fuller stylist, Sperling expanded the genre into the 21st century, deploying it in the context of contemporary performance forms. She was nominated for a 2017 World Choreography Award for her work on the French feature film “The Dancer” (premiere 2016 Cannes Film Festival) inspired by Fuller’s life. Years of working in Fuller’s idiom, which involves kinesphere-expanding costumes, has influenced Sperling’s awareness of the body’s relationship with the larger environment. In 2014, she participated in a polar science mission to the Arctic as the first, and to date only, choreographer-in-residence aboard a US Coast Guard icebreaker. During the expedition, she danced on Arctic sea ice and made the short dance film “Ice Floe,” winner of a Creative Climate Award. Following that experience, Sperling has focused on developing programs that engage creatively with climate.

Time Lapse Dance (TLD), is an all-women dance company founded by Jody Sperling in 2000. The company’s mission is to forge dynamic connections between dance and movements in culture, history, science, visual arts, and music. Since inception, TLD has presented fifteen seasons in Sperling’s native NYC and toured to performing arts centers nationally and internationally. Along with performances, TLD offers outreach on arts/climate, family programs, workshops, and masterclasses. TLD has received commissions from Marlboro College/Vermont Performance Lab, University of Wyoming/NEA American Masterpieces, and the Streb Lab for Action Mechanics.

Matthew Burtner (Composer, Wind Rose) (www.matthewburtner.com) is an Alaskan-born composer and sound artist who creates music from materials and data of climate change, particularly related to the Arctic. Burtner spent his childhood in the far north of Alaska and this profoundly shaped his musical language. He is the leading expert on the eco-acoustics of snow and ice, and has worked extensively with systems of climatology applied to music. First Prize Winner of the Musica Nova International competition, and an NEA Art Works and IDEA Award winner, Burtner’s music has received honors and prizes from Bourges (France), Gaudeamus (Netherlands), Darmstadt (Germany) and The Russolo (Italy) international competitions. His concert music has been performed in festivals and venues throughout the world, and commissioned by ensembles such as NOISE (USA), Integrales (Germany), Peak FreQuency (USA), MiN (Norway), Musikene (Spain), Spiza (Greece), CrossSound (Alaska), and others. He teaches composition and computer music at the University of Virginia, and directs the environmental arts non-profit organization, EcoSono (www.ecosono.org).

N. Scott Johnson (Cellist) is an architect, artist and musician whose work explores public space, performance and memory. In 2016, Johnson founded XDEA Architects, an interdisciplinary design studio based in New York. Prior to XDEA, Johnson was a Principal with architects Diller Scofidio + Renfro, working on projects such as The Shed, Museum of Modern Art expansion and the High Line. As a cellist and composer, Johnson explores the concepts of breath and harmonics to activate the vast space between 12 traditional tones, inspired by jam sessions with filmmaker Barbara Hammer while developing various realizations of Hammer’s Evidentiary Bodies. His visual score of Hammer’s film, Nude Walk, written and performed for the Whitney Museum of American Art installation was published by Inpatient Press in 2018. Together, Johnson and Hammer presented 5 screenings of Evidentiary Bodies at the Berlin Film Festival in 2018, where Johnson wrote and performed Duet for Cello and Film to accompany the film score, the only live performance at the festival. As an architect, Johnson collaborated with Hammer to design a white box immersive version of the film, currently on view at the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston and the Wexner Center for the Arts in Columbus, Ohio.

Anna Sokolow (1910-2000) was born in Hartford, Connecticut and began her training at the Neighborhood Playhouse with Martha Graham and Louis Horst. In the 1930’s she was a member of the Graham Dance Company and assisted Mr. Horst in his dance composition classes. During this period, in addition to her association with the WPA dance unit, she formed her own company and began choreographing and performing solo concerts and ensemble works Ms. Sokolow’s interest in humanity led her to create works of dramatic contemporary imagery showing both the lyric and stark aspects of the human experience. Her vast range of repertory includes drama, comedy, and lyricism with her commentaries on humanity and social justice threaded into each of her works. In a 1965 Dance Magazine article she wrote that there were no “final solutions to today’s problems,” but that she “could simply provoke an audience into awareness.” Ms. Sokolow’s works are performed by the Sokolow Theatre/Dance Ensemble, and are in the repertories of numerous other companies around the world. Anna Sokolow passed away in her home in New York City on March 29, 2000 at the age of 90.

Samantha Geracht (Artistic Director of Anna Sokolow Theatre/Dance Ensemble) After performing with Anna Sokolow’s Players’ Project for eleven years, and as a founding member of Sokolow Theatre/Dance Ensemble since 2004, Ms. Geracht was appointed artistic director of Sokolow Theatre/Dance Ensemble in January of 2017. Ms. Geracht has toured and taught Sokolow internationally, and reconstructs Sokolow repertory on professional companies and in college and university dance programs. She has reconstructed Sokolow work at a variety of dance programs including The Boston Conservatory, Franklin and Marshall, Barnard College, Morris County Community College, Centre de Danse Nationale de Paris, Kanopy Dance company, Ellen Robbins Dance as well as worked with various soloists including Jennifer Conely, Kim Jones, and Sandra Kauffman.Ms. Geracht has also performed the Humphrey/Weidman repertory with Deborah Carr Theatre Dance Ensemble, and with Gail Corbin since 1993. She regularly works with Rae Ballard’s Thoughts in Motion, and she has also performed with Jim May, as a guest artist with David Parker and The Bang Group as well as in her own choreography. In 2016 she choreographed Shadowbox Theatre’s The Earth and Me, a climate change puppet/dance opera for school aged children.

Aviva Geismar is a choreographer, dance educator and the Artistic Director of Drastic Action, a NYC-based contemporary dance company. Drastic Action uses dance to create connections across lines of difference. Through education programs and performances, the company offers individuals opportunities for serious reflection, self-expression and empowerment. In 2016 Drastic Action’s project, Dis/Location (Fort Tryon), explored the immigrant experience in the largely immigrant neighborhood of Washington Heights with a site-specific performance and workshops in a neighborhood middle school. From 2006-2010, Drastic Action developed two cultural exchange programs with Germany in partnership with the Battery Dance Company. These projects, “Dances for the Blue House” and “Dancing to Connect,” focused on tolerance within the context and legacy of the Holocaust, particularly relevant content in the stratified Germany of that time. Geismar’s dances have been performed in prominent venues including Inside/Out at Jacob’s Pillow, Danspace Project, Dance Theater Workshop, Dance New Amsterdam, Wilhelma -Theater (Stuttgart) and Haus der Berliner Festspiele, and she has received support from LMCC, NYC-DCA, Bay and Paul Foundations, Mary Duke Biddle Foundation, Jody and John Arnhold Foundation and others.

German American Von Steuben Day Parade 2019 in New York City, NYC

German American Von Steuben Day Parade – New York City, NYC

Saturday, September 21, 2019

9:00 am

Steuben Parade Mass at St. Patrick’s Cathedral, Fifth Avenue at 50th Street

12:00 – 2:00 pm

Steuben Parade takes off from Fifth Avenue and 78th Street

Believe it or not this happens to be one of New Yorkled’s favorite parades. Every year when we get a chance we sneak on up to the steps in front of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Prime Viewing! Oh no! I gave it away. Nonetheless, you should show up for this parade and get a glimpse of all the costumes, dancing, marching and music.

Steuben, Friedrich Wilhelm Ludolf Gerhard Augustin, Baron von (1730-94), Prussian-American general of the American revolutionary army, born in Magdeburg, Prussia (now Germany). He fought with distinction in the Seven Years’ War (1756-63) and arrived at Portsmouth, New Hampshire, in 1778, offering his services to Congress and to the Continental Army and its commander, George Washington. He was appointed inspector general, prepared a manual of tactics for the army, remodeled its organization, organized an efficient staff, and improved its discipline. In 1780 he sat on the court-martial of the British army officer Major John André, who was charged with espionage. In the same year he took part, as a major general, in the siege of Yorktown. After the war he received grants of land from several states, and finally Congress voted him a pension of $2400. He became an American citizen in 1783.

New York Butoh Institute Festival 19

October 10-27, 2019

at Theater for the New City

New York Butoh Institute presents the New York Butoh Institute Festival 19 from Thursday, October 10 through Sunday, October 27, 2019 at Theater for the New City. This year will mark the 60th anniversary of the Japanese performance art form butoh.

Curated by New York Butoh Institute’s founder Vangeline, the Festival will consist of an exciting program of Butoh workshops and masterclasses, as well as seven nights of groundbreaking performances presented at Theater for the New City. The festival will conclude on Sunday, October 27 with a lecture and short film celebrating the founder of butoh, Tatsumi Hijikata, and the 60 years of this historical and revolutionary art form as it continues to evolve into the 21st century.

The bold butoh performances being presented during the festival will feature 14 female dancers from Japan, Colombia, Norway, Italy, Germany, France, and the U.S. One of the pieces, Hijikata, Mon Amour, will be performed by Vangeline as an homage to butoh founder Tatsumi Hijikata. A highlight of the piece will be the costume Vangeline will wear: an exact replica of the bold red costume Tatsumi Hijikata wore in his legendary butoh performance of Tatsumi Hijikata and The Japanese-Revolt of the Flesh in 1968.

Thanks to a loan from the Tatsumi Hijikata Archives and a Janet Arnold Award from the Society of Antiquaries of London, the Festival is able to showcase the replica of this iconic costume worn by Tatsumi Hijikata in Revolt of the Flesh. Hijikata’s costume remains a totem for butoh-it holds secrets of the avant-garde art form.

Much like butoh itself, it was born at the confluence of East and West. This costume chronicles the evolution of postmodern art in Japan. The Festival will close with a short film of Tatsumi Hijikata in his 1968 solo, and a lecture with costume expert Todd Thomas who recreated the costume, and who will discuss his process, shedding light on how the original costume was designed and constructed. Prior to and during the presentation, the replica will be on display for audience members to see.

The New York Butoh Festival 19 will take place at Theater for the New City, 155 First Avenue, NYC. Thursday through Saturday October 17-19 and October 24-26 at 8pm, Sunday October 20 at 3pm, Sunday October 27 special event lecture at 3pm. Tickets are $18-$20, and can be purchased by phone at (212) 254-1109 or online at https://butohfest-19.eventbrite.com/. The lecture on Sunday, October 27 is free and open to the public.

Artists Featured:

Eri Chian (Osaka, Japan); Mari Osanai, (Aomori, Japan), Tove-Elena Nicolaysen (Chile/Norway), Salome Kokoladze (Georgia), Sindy Butz (Germany), Katherine Adamenko (USA), Madelyn Sher (USA), Angela Newsham (Hawai-USA), Melissa Lohman (Italy), Margherita Tisato (Italy), Yazmin Gonzalez (USA), Vangeline, (France), Lauren Farber (USA) and Brenda Polo (Colombia).

VANGELINE THEATER/NEW YORK BUTOH INSTITUTE aims to preserve the legacy and integrity of Japanese Butoh while carrying the art form well into the future. The unique art of Butoh originated in post- World War II Japan as a reaction to the loss of identity caused by the westernization of Japanese culture, as well as a realization that ancient Japanese performing traditions no longer spoke to a contemporary audience. One of the major developments in contemporary dance in the latter half of the 20th century, Butoh combines dance, theater, improvisation and influences of Japanese traditional performing arts to create a unique performing art form that is both controversial and universal in its expression. The Vangeline Theater is home to the New York Butoh Institute, dedicated to the advancement of Butoh in the 21st century. www.vangeline.com

Vangeline is a teacher, dancer, and choreographer specializing in the Japanese postwar avant-garde movement form Butoh. She is the artistic director of the Vangeline Theater (New York), a dance company firmly rooted in the tradition of Japanese Butoh while carrying it into the 21st century, and the founder of the New York Butoh Institute. Her work has been heralded in publications such as The New York Times (“captivating”), Los Angeles
Times, (“moves with the clockwork deliberation of a practiced Japanese Butoh artist”) and LA Weekly, to name a few. More recently her solo “Butoh Beethoven: Eclipse” received critical acclaim from the Ballet Review.

Vangeline is a 2018 NYFA/ NYSCA Artist Fellow in Choreography. She is also the winner of the 2015 Gibney Dance’s Beth Silverman-Yam Social Action Award. Film projects include a starring role alongside actors James Franco and Winona Ryder in the 2012 feature film The Letter, written and directed by Jay Anania, She has performed with/for Grammy Award-winning artists SKRILLEX and Esperanza Spalding. She is the author of a forthcoming book about butoh and looks forward to curating the second New York Butoh Institute Festival 19 this October.

THEATER FOR THE NEW CITY (TNC) is a Pulitzer Prize-winning community cultural center that is known for its high artistic standards and widespread community service. One of New York’s most prolific theatrical organizations, TNC produces 30-40 premieres of new American plays per year, at least 10 of which are by emerging and young playwrights. Many influential theater artists of the last quarter century have found TNC’s Resident Theater Program instrumental to their careers, among them Sam Shepard, Moises Kaufman, Richard Foreman, Charles Busch, Maria Irene Fornes, Miguel Piñero, Jean-Claude van Itallie, Vin Diesel, Oscar Nuñez, Laurence Holder, Romulus Linney and Academy Award winners Tim Robbins and Adrien Brody. TNC also presents plays by multi-ethnic/multi-disciplinary theater companies who have no permanent home. Among the well-known companies that have been presented by TNC are Mabou Mines, the Living Theater, Bread and Puppet Theater, the San Francisco Mime Troupe, and COBU, the Japanese women’s drumming, and dance group. TNC also produced the Yangtze Repertory Company’s 1997 production of Between Life and Death, which was the only play ever produced in America by Gao Xingjian before he won the 2000 Nobel Prize for Literature. TNC seeks to develop theater audiences and inspire future theater artists from the often-overlooked low-income minority communities of New York City by producing minority writers from around the world and by bringing the community into theater and theater into the community through its many free festivals. TNC productions have won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and over 42 OBIE Awards for excellent in every theatrical discipline. TNC is the only Theatrical Organization to have won the Mayor’s Stop The Violence award.

BALLET HISPÁNICO
in collaboration with
THE APOLLO THEATER
presents

The World Premiere of

Annabelle Lopez Ochoa’s Tiburones
A Restaging of Nací by Andrea Miller
Con Brazos Abiertos by Michelle Manzanales

November 22-23, 2019 at 8:00pm

Ballet Hispánico, the nation’s premier Latino dance organization, returns to the Apollo stage on Friday and Saturday, November 22 and 23, 2019 at 8:00pm with a program that continues its commitment to staging works by female, Latinx choreographers. Ballet Hispánico is sponsored by GOYA, which has sponsored the company since 1977.

In the World Premiere of Tiburones, Anabelle Lopez Ochoa reimagines the world of the street gang, The Sharks (from the award-winning musical West Side Story) from a Latinx and gender fluid perspective. Ochoa will embrace non-gender specific roles while deconstructing stereotypes and giving new life to an ever appropriated cultural icon.

In this restaging of Nací (2009), choreographer Andrea Miller draws from the duality of her Spanish and Jewish-American background and employs her distinctive movement style to investigate the Sephardic culture of Spain, with its Moorish influence and profound sense of community, despite hardship.

Con Brazos Abiertos (2017) is a fun and frank look at life caught between two cultures. Michelle Manzanales utilizes iconic Mexican symbols that she was reluctant to embrace as a Mexican-American child growing up in Texas, to speak to the immigrant experience. Intertwining folkloric representations with humor and music that ranges from Julio Iglesias to Rock en Español, the work brings life to a Latino dilemma.

“We are thrilled to bring the World Premiere of Annabelle Lopez Ochoa’s Tiburones to the Apollo Theater. Ballet Hispánico is dedicated to providing arts programming that is accessible to community members of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds and we are grateful for this continued partnership with the Apollo, allowing us another opportunity to elevate the voices of Latinx and female artists,”said Artistic Director & CEO Eduardo Vilaro.

“Our collaboration with Ballet Hispánico not only speaks to the importance of presenting such vital works in Harlem, but also speaks to the Apollo’s mission of continuing to create a 21st century performing arts canon. We want to not only commission and present a myriad of new multidisciplinary works, but also continue being a home for cultural innovators such as Ballet Hispánico,” said Kamilah Forbes, the Apollo’s Executive Producer.

“We are proud to support the work and talent of Ballet Hispánico because we value organizations who bring together communities of all cultures and ages through the beauty and passion of their art form,” said Rafael Toro, Director of Public Relations of GOYA Foods.

Artistic Director & CEO: Eduardo Vilaro
Rehearsal Director: Johan Rivera

In 2012, her first full length work, A Streetcar Named Desire, originally created for Scottish Ballet, received the Critics’ Circle National Dance Award for “Best Classical Choreography” and was nominated for the prestigious Olivier Award for Best New Dance Production the following year. Annabelle is the recipient of the Jacob’s Pillow Dance Award 2019.

Andrea Miller is Artistic Director and choreographer of Brooklyn-based company, Gallim, and has established herself as a perpetually groundbreaking artist. A sought-after creator and collaborator in dance, art, film, theater, tech, and fashion, Miller was named 2017/2018 Artist in Residence at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and in October 2018, she was featured in Forbes as a female entrepreneur and leader in the dance world. Her highly acclaimed works are performed by Gallim as well as other leading dance companies around the world. Her work has been shown at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Frieze Festival, Art Basel, Lincoln Center, The Kennedy Center, BAM Next Wave, The Joyce, and Jacob’s Pillow, among others. Miller’s educational programming is run from Gallim’s Brooklyn home studio and has been brought to universities and educational centers across the US.

Michelle Manzanales is a choreographer and dance educator originally from Houston, TX. Michelle is the Director of the Ballet Hispánico School of Dance, but lends her artistic voice to all facets of the organization. She began working with Eduardo Vilaro, in 2003 as a dancer for his company Luna Negra Dance Theater of Chicago where she also served as Rehearsal Director in 2006 and as Interim Artistic Director from 2009-2010. Ms. Manzanales has created works for professional dance companies, universities, and schools across the nation including a commission for Ballet Hispánico’s main Company for their 2017 season at The Joyce Theater. Her 2010 homage to Frida Kahlo, Paloma Querida, and 2007 piece, Sugar in the Raw (Azucar Cruda) have been praised by the Chicago Tribune and Chicago Sun Times. “This dance isn’t just about one girl’s experience; it applies to everyone, of any gender, and of any culture,” said CriticalDance of Manzanales’ Con Brazos Abiertos (2017).

About Ballet Hispánico

Ballet Hispánico, America’s leading Latino dance organization, has been bringing individuals and communities together to celebrate and explore Latino cultures through dance for nearly 50 years. Whether dancing on stage, in school, or in the street, Ballet Hispánico creates a space where few institutions are breaking ground.

The organization’s founder, National Medal of Arts recipient Tina Ramirez, sought to give voice to the Hispanic experience and break through stereotypes. Today, Ballet Hispánico is led by Eduardo Vilaro, an acclaimed choreographer and former member of the Company whose vision of social equity, cultural identity, and quality arts education for all drives its programs.

Ballet Hispánico, a role model in and for the Latino community, is inspiring creativity and social awareness in our neighborhoods and across the country by providing access to arts education.

Eduardo Vilaro (Artistic Director & CEO) joined Ballet Hispánico as Artistic Director in August 2009, becoming only the second person to head the company since it was founded in 1970. In 2015, Mr. Vilaro took on the additional role of Chief Executive Officer of Ballet Hispánico. He has been part of the Ballet Hispánico family since 1985 as a dancer and educator, after which he began a ten-year record of achievement as founder and Artistic Director of Luna Negra Dance Theater in Chicago. Mr. Vilaro has infused Ballet Hispánico’s legacy with a bold and eclectic brand of contemporary dance that reflects America’s changing cultural landscape. Born in Cuba and raised in New York from the age of six, he is a frequent speaker on the merits of cultural diversity and dance education. Mr. Vilaro’s own choreography is devoted to capturing the spiritual, sensual, and historical essence of Latino cultures. He created over 20 ballets for Luna Negra and has received commissions from the Ravinia Festival, the Chicago Sinfonietta, the Grant Park Festival, the Lexington Ballet, and the Chicago Symphony. In 2001, he was a recipient of a Ruth Page Award for choreography, and in 2003, he was honored for his choreographic work at Panama’s II International Festival of Ballet. Mr. Vilaro was inducted into the Bronx Walk of Fame in 2016 and was awarded HOMBRE Magazine’s 2017 Arts & Culture Trailblazer of the Year. In 2019, Mr. Vilaro was the recipient of the West Side Spirit’s WESTY Award, was honored by WNET for his contributions to the arts, and most recently, was the recipient of the James W. Dodge Foreign Language Advocate Award.

About the Apollo Theater

The legendary Apollo Theater-the soul of American culture-plays a vital role in cultivating emerging artists and launching legends. Since its founding, the Apollo has served as a center of innovation and a creative catalyst for Harlem, the city of New York, and the world.

This includes special programs such as the blockbuster concert Bruno Mars Live at the Apollo, 100: The Apollo Celebrates Ella, the annual Africa Now! Festival, the New York premiere of the opera We Shall Not Be Moved, and the world premiere of Between the World and Me. The Apollo is a performing arts presenting organization that also produces festivals and large-scale dance and music works organized around a set of core initiatives that celebrate and extend the Apollo’s legacy through a contemporary lens; global festivals including the Women of the World (WOW) Festival and Breakin’ Convention, international and U.S.-based artist presentations focused on a specific theme; and special projects, multidisciplinary collaborations with partner organizations.

Since introducing the first Amateur Night contests in 1934, the Apollo Theater has served as a testing ground for new artists working across a variety of art forms and has ushered in the emergence of many new musical genres-including jazz, swing, bebop, R&B, gospel, blues, soul, and hip-hop. Among the countless legendary performers who launched their careers at the Apollo are D’Angelo, Lauryn Hill, H.E.R., Machine Gun Kelly, Miri Ben Ari, Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Billie Holiday, James Brown, Gladys Knight, Luther Vandross, and Stevie Wonder; and the Apollo’s forward-looking artistic vision continues to build on this legacy.
