Costumes by Reid Bartelme and Harriet Jung and music by John King complement the program. Andrea Weber moderates a discussion with former Cunningham dancers Kimberly Bartosik and Gus Solomons.

CUNY Dance Initiative and John Jay College and Mari Meade Dance Collective present ‘immigration stories’ @ Gerald W Lynch Theater at John Jay College
Sep 13 all-day

CUNY Dance Initiative and John Jay College
in collaboration with Mari Meade Dance Collective
present
the World Premiere of

immigration stories

Friday, September 13, 2019 at 7:30pm

at Gerald W. Lynch Theater at John Jay College,
524 W. 59th Street, NYC

The CUNY Dance Initiative and John Jay College, in collaboration with Mari Meade Dance Collective/MMDC, present the World Premiere of immigration stories on Friday, September 13, 2019 at 7:30pm at the Gerald W. Lynch Theater at John Jay College, 524 W. 59th Street, NYC. Tickets are $20 ($15 for students and seniors) and can be purchased online here… or at the door the night of the performance.

immigration stories, a series of dances based on true experiences about relocating to the United States, opens up the vastly different paths people take to come this country. What began with a frustrating phone call for choreographer Mari Meade to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services has evolved into a full evening of personal stories, music and dance. From a young man who was born in Germany and lived in Ghana before making his way to New York, to a Russian woman who moved to Florida as a teenager, these individual stories expand the conversation around immigration in this highly politicized time. Weaving together interviews with original compositions by Rosana Caban, Domenico Curcio, and Eran Sabo, with additional music by Chino Amobi, immigration stories combines words and movement to question assumptions around cultural identity and what being “American” might really mean.

immigration stories is choreographed by Mari Meade with costumes by Emily Petry, and performed by Allison Beler, Breanna Gribble, Misuzu Hara, Sean Hatch, Morgan Hurst, Isaac Owens, Or Reitman, and Roza Savelyeva.

ABOUT THE ARTISTS

Founded in 2009, Mari Meade Dance Collective/MMDC creates intricate, fully-formed worlds with epic, abstract narratives. Highly physical, quirky movement forms tight-knit communities of exaggerated characters who are bound to complex narrative arcs. The company is driven by Mari Meade’s choreographic inspiration but is shaped by interactions with and contributions from other visual art forms. MMDC has shown work nationally and internationally. Highlights include: the Clark Theatre at Lincoln Center; Dance: Access at Danspace/St. Mark’s Church (NYC); STUFFED at Judson Memorial Church (NYC); Triskelion Arts (Brooklyn); FLICfest (Brooklyn); Battery Dance Festival (NYC); New Orleans Fringe Festival (LA); Asheville Fringe Festival (NC); Baltimore Dance Invitational (MD); Katlehong Arts Center (South Africa); and Lake Studios Berlin (Germany).

Mari Meade is an educator, choreographer, and the artistic director of Mari Meade Dance Collective / MMDC. Meade has received the New York Choreographic Institute (an affiliate of New York City Ballet), UNCSA Development Residency, the Kenan Fellowship at Lincoln Center Education and was an Artist in Residence at Chez Bushwick, Triskelion Arts, CUNY Dance Initiative, and Lake Studios Berlin. She has shown work at Clark Theatre at Lincoln Center; Danspace; Judson Memorial Church; Joe’s Pub; Battery Dance Festival; Triskelion Arts; ChopShop: Bodies of Work (WA); New Orleans Fringe Festival; Asheville Fringe Festival; Baltimore Dance Invitational; Lake Studios Berlin; Katlehong Arts Center (South Africa). She was awarded a Brooklyn Arts Council regrant in 2010, and a “New Work” and Su Casa grant from Queens Council on the Arts in 2019. Mari Meade is also a board member of the Kenan Institute for the Arts and the associate director of the UNCSA’s Choreographic Institute. She was recently commissioned by Amalgamate Dance Company, One Day Dance, and CounterPointe. She is a teaching artist for New York City Ballet and Dancing Classrooms. She is a graduate of UNC School of the Arts.

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.

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).
