Downtown dance legend Valda Setterfield adds to a multi-year, citywide examination of the Shakespearean tragedy with a deeply personal and riveting Lear of her own. Created in collaboration with John Scott, Artistic Director of Dublin-based John Scott Dance (formerly Irish Modern Dance Theatre) whose choreography falls “somewhere between Beckett, Chaplin and Monty Python” (Tanz Magazine), Scott and Setterfield deliver a work that is both deeply personal and playful. The inimitable Setterfield, noted for her work with David Gordon Pick Up Company and as a soloist for Merce Cunningham, plays King Lear, giving a profoundly moving performance that explores the unraveling of a universe, parental love, fear of death, personal transformation and enlightenment. Toppling the hierarchy with Goneral, Regan and Cordelia portrayed by three men, including Irish dancer Ryan O’Neill and young French dancer Kevin Coquelard, Lear is a “timely and tender exploration of aging, loss and regret that gets to the very heart of who we are” (Irish Daily Mail).

Lear was originally commissioned by Kilkenny Arts Festival, Ireland. Supported by Culture Ireland as part of the Ireland 2016 Centenary Programme.

Based in New York City, FJK Dance is a contemporary dance company founded in 2014.

              At FJK Dance, we believe in the unique fusion of culture and dance. The endless possibilities of experimenting with the fundamentals of various forms of dance, from classical ballet to ballroom, from Middle Eastern to jazz––we combine the essentials of each to create our own language. One that uses abstract body lines, forms and energy to communicate with our audience. 

            The mission of FJK Dance embodies a fundamental idea – to fuse the vocabularies of various dance forms into a language expressive of our shared capacity to create. Yet this fusion extends beyond dance forms themselves, into a totality that includes costumes, lighting, and sound. Dance forms are rendered, given to the audience through a complex visual and auditory environment that becomes dance-theater

Her directness is incisive, quickly bringing out the genuine problems and experiences of those she engages with. Sherapy uses the stagecraft of theater to enhance the healing of therapy. In the workshop, Sherry will engage with one person, as a way for the room to witness her process and her practice.

Self-taught indy phenoms the Abunasser twins have ignited the international film festival circuit with their first feature, a rare glimpse of life in Gaza. Known for their award-winning short films and a remarkable set of cinema poster pastiches, the brothers conjure a hot summer's day in the Gaza Strip when the electricity is on. Christine’s beauty salon is heaving with female clients: a bride-to-be, a pregnant woman, a bitter divorcée, a devout woman and a pill-popping addict. But their day of leisure is disrupted when gunfire breaks out across the street. A gangland family has stolen the lioness from Gaza’s only zoo, and Hamas has decided it’s time to settle old scores. Stuck in the salon, with the prospect of death drawing ever nearer, the women start to unravel. How will the day end? Will they lose their lives for the sake of “liberating the lioness”?

Clear & Sweet is a new multi­-disciplinary performance incorporating dance, vocals and visuals resulting from an inquiry into Southern Baptist Sacred Harp Singing and Scofield’s complicated connection to her Southern roots.

Sacred Harp Singing is a form of spiritual a cappella choral singing founded in Southern Baptist churches and now practiced in secular groups. The strikingly raw singing – it only uses four notes and can be sung by anyone – caught Zoe’s attention while on a trip home to Georgia and has become a powerful lens for exploring the complexities of growing up in the South. Recognizing commonalities between Sacred Harp Singing and the company's work – a desire to bring about redemption through physical exertion and to allow for personal experiences of worship in the company of others – we will bring these unexpected synchronicities to the stage.

Recollection (2015, 70 minutes, Palestine/Germany) 
The Israeli and American features shot in the town of Jaffa from the 60s to the 90s are the basis for the story of a dream. All protagonists are removed from the original footage, leaving an empty setting formed by the town. Thus, the impossible is made possible from the “I” perspective, namely filming the past and compiling a picture album made of memories.

In this master class, choreographer, performer and theorist Adham Hafez will be performing with the attendees strategies of performative communication, mutual pleasure, self-pleasure and ecstasy as modes of producing a dance/performance space and experience. The notion 'sultana' -unique to Arab performance practices, will be explored, performed, rearticulated and shared through voice, movement and gazes.

Adham Hafez taught contemporary dance and performance studies internationally including American University in Cairo and the Cairo Opera House Modern Dance School (Egypt), Impulstanz (Austria), and Konstfak (Sweden). He has set up several dance and performance pedagogic processes including HADS in Cairo. Awarded choreographer and composer, he continues to be run his internationally touring performance company based in Cairo, and currently he is a PhD candidate at New York University.

Schooled in the traditional sounds of the Gnawa people in his native Marrakesh, since moving to the US his music has absorbed elements from a variety of popular styles, from jazz and "world music" to neo-classical contemporary Western music and cerebral pop, resulting in a diverse, award-winning and critically acclaimed body of work. Hassan Hakmoun's 6-piece ensemble includes the sintir plus vocals, guitar, drums, percussion, flute/sax, and karkaba, the metal double castenets of the Gnawa.

Marie Al Fajr shares dance techniques and research methods from her practice over the past two decades. Enmeshed in exploring the Arab-Muslim and Ottoman histories of poetry, mysticism and choreography, Marie Al Fajr builds contemporary dance work that stems from in-depth historical investigations. The ‘hidden garden,’ a metaphor common in Arab miniature depictions, songs and poems from bygone times, is an invitation to look at a unique dance material and somatic practices.

An exclusive screening featuring acclaimed work and US premieres by two of the most unique filmmakers of the region. Combining experimental film technique with narrative structures that question collective memory in the face of ongoing challenges to future-focused ideals, these filmmakers continue to generate powerful visions for the future of cinema.

Films by Maha Maamoun (Egypt)

2026 (2015, 10 minutes)
Shooting Stars Remind Me of Eavesdroppers (2013, 5 minutes)
Night Visitor: The Night of Counting the Years (2011, 9 minutes)

With her films, Maamoun trawls through the cultural imagination in search of historiographical framing in which to set the present. Maamoun’s works indicate that the question of whether art can step out of the symbolic circle in order to have an effect in the world is posed incorrectly: it’s all about the how. Art is opening out almost of its own accord when Maamoun takes seriously symbolic representations and has them clash with one another. In this process ruptures are caused in the representations, enabling the painful points of current questions to be intuited.

Domestic Tourism II (2009, 62 minutes)
In both Domestic Tourism II, Mammoun’s interest is in the generic visual representations of Cairo in a broad sense, and where this intersects with, and is negotiated by, personal experiences. These digitally manipulated images present more complicated, less-sellable and slightly uncomfortable images that comment on the Egypt consumed locally. Tourism in this context refers to a mode of navigating a place and consumption of a locale, whether by a foreigner or a local, and the title, Domestic Tourism, refers to both an intimate and distant relationship to one’s environment.

Films by Larissa Sansour (Jerusalem/Denmark)

Nation Estate (2012, 9 minutes)
Nation Estate is a 9-minute sci-fi short offering a clinically dystopian, yet humorous approach to the deadlock in the Middle East. With its glossy mixture of computer generated imagery, live actors and an arabesque electronica soundtrack, Nation Estate explores a vertical solution to Palestinian statehood. In Sansour’s film, Palestinians have their state in the form of a single skyscraper: the Nation Estate. One colossal high-rise houses the entire Palestinian population – now finally living the high life.

Feast of the Inhabitants (2012, 16 minutes)
In Sansour’s humorous take on the relation between food, politics and cultural identity, the natives are indeed restless. Gathered around a painterly selection of regional delicacies, a group of omnivorous locals host a lively debate covering topics ranging from the best season for lamb’s meat to the multiple Catch 22’s of occupation by a power routinely classifying the Palestinians simply as the ‘Inhabitants of the Territories’ – granting them a more anonymous and legally obscure status than ‘citizens’ or ‘subjects’.

A conversation with one of today's most prolific contemporary art collectors and cultural voices. In addition to his role as political commentator for MSNBC, CNN and Bloomberg TV, Al Qassemi emerged among the foremost voices translating the events of the 'Arab Spring' across social media, recognized by TIME Magazine for harnessing its tools to translate events in real time for a worldwide audience. As founder of the Sharjah-based Barjeel Art Foundation he supports some of the Arab world's most vital new voices through exhibitions locally and internationally, and has risen to become one of the most influential and oft-discussed collectors of politically engaged art in the world.

OFF-SITE at The Graduate Center, CUNY

An evening with two of the most influential media figures of our time. Egyptian satirist, columnist, cardiac surgeon and host of Al-Bernameg (The Program), a satirical news program from 2011 to 2014 inspired by Jon Stewart and The Daily Show which remains the most subscribed YouTube channel in Egypt, Dr. Youssef has established himself as one of today’s most vital voices in observing the political currents in the Middle East and its resonance throughout the world. In 2013, he was named one of the "100 most influential people in the world" by Time Magazine. Rula Jebreal is an award-winning journalist, author and foreign policy analyst who has received accolades for her groundbreaking work in Italy, the United States and across the Middle East. Since moving to the United States in 2009, she has been an on-air foreign policy analyst for MSNBC and a contributor to the Daily Beast, Newsweek and Salon.com, where her articles have reflected a deep knowledge of Islamic extremism, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and the new political order in the Arab Muslim world. Rula has appeared frequently on CNN and Bloomberg, and she has written op-eds for the New York Times and the San Jose Mercury News, among other media outlets. An evening of laughter and insight from two of the world’s most vital voices of transformation.

US Premiere

Fascinated by an artisan’s gestures in which movement is organized to serve production, Mriziga uses his body like a tool to play with perspective and audience expectations. What emerges is an ancient symbol bearing new meaning, questioning our fundamental attachment to symbols and their ability to transgress meanings over time. In the artist’s own words: “The starting point of 55 is: how can I be as functional as possible on stage? As a dancer you constantly ask yourself questions: Is it sufficient? Is this what I want to convey? Is this the right form? What exactly am I doing? What am I making? What do I express? I set out in search of functionality and the form functionality may adopt. It is an almost architectural approach. I question myself as a performer and as a creator.”

OFFSITE at Lycée Francais, 505 East 75th Street, New York, NY, 10021 

Presented by the LFNY Cultural Center in Association with New York Live Arts’ Live Ideas: MENA/Future & Organisation Internationale de la Francophonie

Firebrand Tunisian singer, songwriter, and composer Emel Mathlouthi has been called "The Voice of the Tunisian Revolution." An inheritor of the legacy of American and Arabic protest singers of the 1960’s, she is considered one of the great divas of the Arab World. She gained attention when her song “Kelmti Horra (My Word is Free)” was adopted by the Arab Spring revolutionaries and soon became like an anthem throughout the region. Mathlouthi is devoted to her Tunisian folk roots but deeply influenced by such Western artists as Joan Baez, Massive Attack, Bjork and her sometime-collaborator Tricky. Her gorgeous, intricate sound moves between rock, trip-hop and electronica, all interlaced with classical Arabic tradition. Her delicate and rousing songs express love, suffering and longing for home in a deeply confessional style that verges on sacred Sufi music and an idiom that would not be out of place in the discos of Europe or America.

You can watch Mathlouthi's recent performance at the 2015 Nobel Peace Prize Concert HERE.

New York City Premiere

HaRaKa Platform (Various)

Four female performers bring their solo works to NYC for the first time reflecting current realities within the complexity and personalization of political forces on their bodies and craft, and the difficulty of making work in the region. Through movement, comedy, and extraordinary breadth, these works examine ownership of work and legacy, questioning audience members’ commitment and the artist’s desire to quit art altogether, and the challenge of Arab artists working worldwide.

‘Shagarat Mussafira (Traveling Trees)’ 
by Marie Al Fajr (Paris / Cairo)

Based in Cairo and Paris, French choreographer Marie Al Fajr's work has always raised questions on the politics of aesthetics and the production of temporalities. Her company's choreographic investigation challenges our notions of beauty in contemporary dance now, and problematizes ownership of culture(s). Al Fajr Company was founded by Marie Al Fajr to invest in research into Egyptian dance and music, staging works that are rooted in contemporary Arab culture, the classical Arabic language, and the history of Arab-Islamic art. Her productions refuse market generated aesthetics and Western-centric performance codes. Never starting from ethnology or cultural anthropology perspectives, but rather from an embodied living quotidian knowledge, the work of Marie Al Fajr is perhaps 'intemporary' – as the artist refers to the creations – rather than 'contemporary'.

‘SAP: Safe Art Practice’
by Mona Gamil (Egypt)

Poet, dancer, performance maker and digital artist Mona Gamil is an Egyptian-Irish active member of the thriving Egyptian performance and dance scene. Based in Egypt and Ireland, the work of Mona Gamil doesn't investigate questions of being biracial nor does it speak of intercultural realities. It concretely manifests elements of the complexity of Cairo's contemporary history, and yet never represents it. 'Safe Art Practice' is Mona Gamil's multi-episode guideline to initiate us all into a new genre, a new practice, where we shall never run out of ideas, where we shall always please the market, where we shall always succeed as artists and satisfy all audiences internationally, without resorting to politics and without shocking anyone – not at all. Mona Gamil's work has been presented in Egypt, Germany, Sweden, France and Ireland within performance and visual arts contexts.

‘Atlas’
Concept, choreography, performance by Leyya Mona Tawil (Syria/Palestine)
Music concept, performance by Mike Khoury

Weight of the world.
We crack.
Atlas is concerned with the negotiations of burden – who holds what. It teases assumed agreements between performer and audience – using immersive states to press weight upon the room. Atlas is a score of disorientation that places Tawil at the mercy of her own doing. Survivalist. No resolve. Explicit resolve.

‘In-Situ’
Choreography & Performance by Amira Chebli (Tunis)

In-situ is a sombre performance of oscillating movements within a constricted body. The Tunisian choreographer and performer reflects on the constitutive power of the gaze, as she wonders saying: 'My lips my eyes my legs my smells...all those eyes staring at me, each detail of me'. Amira Chebli proposes belly dance as one of the very last spaces left for a woman to move, to vibrate, to oscillate, to undulate, as she re-members a history of women dancers in the golden age of Arab black and white cinema, seen now through socially policed female bodies.

Since it's premiere this past June 2015, Analogy/Dora: Tramontane has both thrilled and moved audiences with its honesty, compassion and above all, it's humanity. The Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company is now creating the second part of the Analogy trilogy, Analogy/Lance: Pretty aka The Escape Artist. This work-in-progress showing will give a sneak peak into the troubled world of Jones' nephew, Lance, and his story of addiction and recovery. Both stories, while wildly different ruminate on the nature of service, duty and the question of what is a life well lived.

FIND YOURSELF HERE is the culmination of a two-year collaboration between three dancers and three visual artists using movement as a potent form of communication across disciplines. This work started as a solo, became three trios and is now a sextet with a yearlong collaboration with the composer.

After creating and performing three separate trios, each a collaboration between two dancers and one visual artist created in a short, intensive period of time and connected to a specific space, the team presents an evening-length dance performance that brings the research, discoveries and unique people from these three trios together into one theater. With a spectrum between tension and harmony, isolation and togetherness, the performers use movement as a dynamic, immediate form of dialogue between bodies and disciplines, highlighting the boundaries and shared concerns of visual art and performance and the forums for presenting each.

Sonya Tayeh’s original work-in-progress You'll Still Call Me By Name is a dance-symphony - an emotionally charged dream-memoir of her deeply complex, mystifying and, at times, jagged relationship with her mother, and thus, with herself. Developed through the Live Feed Program, the new work features frequent collaborators Jo Lampert (performer) and folk and gospel-infused musical wonders The Bengsons (Composer/Performers Abigail Nessen Bengson & Shaun McLain Bengson). You’ll Still Call Me By Name is a theatrical purging, a cathartic exploration of ritual, anger and love. It is the fiery story of faith and choice, of family and devotion, and of the extreme beauty and enlightenment of an individual’s sudden transformation, and the tumult it can cause for those around them.

In 1850, news of “The California Gold Rush” reached southern China before most Americans had learned of it and thus began an exodus of 300,000 Chinese immigrants to “Gold Mountain.” South Of Gold Mountain draws from rich oral histories, treasured images, official and private documentation of Chinese settlers lured to America by the promise of gold and a prosperous life.  With the support of Chinese American community heritage museums and family associations in the US, three years of extensive research and in-depth interviews were conducted with immigrants and their descendants, inspiring this insightful production by HT Chen & Dancers. 

The similarity between village life in China and living in southern US communities was evident as the immigrants were helped by those arriving before them, to endure daily hardships and adjust to the cultural challenges of their adoptive country. Discrimination, racism, and physical violence were prevalent.  To survive, they became deeply connected despite rural isolation. These Chinese residents helped build America by working on railroads, levees, and plantations, and as grocers. 

HT Chen & Dancers’ production memorializes the struggles of thousands of Chinese Americans and their legacy. It acknowledges generations of descendants and blended communities now thriving across the US.  Blending a contemporary sound score, traditional Chinese music, and Deep South Blues, this vital dance-theater celebration of the first Chinese American settlements is an enlightening story of immigration, civil rights, and assimilation. 

“… a moving and engaging choreographic tribute to the few pioneering Chinese immigrants who settled in the American South starting as early as the end of the Civil War.”         -  John Jung, Author, Scholar, Professor

H.T. Chen & Dancers' performances are part of New York Live Arts' Community Rental program, which is designed for dance and theater companies, as well as producing and non-profit organizations.

This letter to Jones’ nephew is a music and dance driven study using movement motifs that reference a troubled life in show business, the sex trade and the hard job of growing up. This is a celebration and meditation on the life of Lance T. Briggs.

Music composed by Nick Hallett accompanies the stunning dancers of the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company with a delirious mixture of lullabies, rhythm and blues and house music. The dance evokes a ballet class, a lively disco and more undefinable interior landscapes.

The Body Against Body program is an intimate and focused collection of duet works drawn from the Company’s 30 year history. Bill T. Jones returns to his roots in the avant-garde with a program that revives and reconsiders the challenging, groundbreaking works that launched Jones and the late Arnie Zane, his partner and collaborator of 17 years. Still some of the most significant examples of the postmodern aesthetic, these pieces redefined the duet form and changed the face of American dance. Both conceptually and physically rigorous, the works take on new life through the diverse dancers of Jones’s company, providing a rare look at the origins of a widely acclaimed choreographer.

In this workshop we will explore partnered dancing and dance making as exercised in the training and repertory of the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company.

Historically and spiritually rooted in the convention-defying partnership of Bill T. Jones and Arnie Zane, the company’s approach to partnering is informed by over thirty years of rigorous investigation into the dynamic possibilities of physical relationship in art.

In an atmosphere of curiosity, warmth and constructive risk-taking, participants will be exposed to approaches to partnering founded in personal, interpersonal, and spatial awareness; deep kinesthetic sensitivity; and the intellectual and embodied understanding of the physical dynamics of weight, structure, and momentum. Diving in with the company’s highly collaborative working style, we will explore it’s creative methodologies and work with generative structures inspired by those used in the Company’s repertory, past and present.​

Co-presented with Irish Arts Center

As inspiration for their latest production, Arcane Collective delves delves into the Samuel Beckett trilogy Molloy, Malone Dies, and The Unnamable. In reverence to Beckett, Return to Absence embodies the resonant images and wrought emotions characteristic to these remarkable stories. Constructing a fluent language of movement and environments as abstract and absurd as Beckett’s unparalleled composition of words, the dance emerges as an intimate portrayal of humanity; a rich and ridiculous non-linear storytelling.

Supported by Culture Ireland as part of the Ireland 2016 Centenary Programme.

Analogy/Dora: Tramontane  is based on an oral history Jones conducted with 95-year old Dora Amelan, a French Jewish nurse & social worker. Amelan’s harrowing, touching and inspirational story is broken into approximately 30 episodes that become the basis for choreography and songs. These episodes chronicle her early life in Belgium, her mother’s death as the Germans were marching into Belgium and her experiences working at an underground Jewish organization in Vichy France’s internment camps, Gurs & Rivesaltes. Here is a portrait of the ability to persevere and survive.

This fall’s edition of Barnard/Columbia Dances at New York Live Arts features three world premieres along with Canonic 3/4 Studies, Mark Morris’ witty and musically inventive work staged by Marjorie Folkman (‘91) with live music played by Robert Boston.  The premieres are by Molissa Fenley, whose choreography since the start of her 38-year career has emphasized speed, stamina, and athletic virtuosity; Caitlin Trainor, who uses sensuous environments to create what has been called “pure dance without pretension”; and Alexandra Beller, whose pieces, rich in metaphor and abstracted narrative, stand on the edge between dance and theater.  Produced by the Barnard College Department of Dance and performed by Barnard and Columbia University students, this concert marks the eleventh season of the College’s collaboration with New York Live Arts.

Barnard/Columbia Dances' performances are part of New York Live Arts' Community Rental program, which is designed for dance and theater companies, as well as producing and non-profit organizations.

Proxy Girls: Performance + Dialogue with Noura Murad (Syria)

A very special event blending the worlds of Syria with downtown NYC Worlds move beyond borders…When a dancer's body is politicized beyond the dancer's agency, and borders are erected at each step s/he takes, can we still dance together? Commissioned by HaRaKa, 'Proxy Girls' is a performed research on borders, distances, and constricted choreographies, inviting leading Syrian choreographer Noura Murad and Leish Troupe to move a few downtown’s most dynamic dancers in New York City through distant written and recorded scores from their home in Syria where they are unable to leave. Bodies held worlds apart come together on this evening to rethink distance as a possibility for intimacy, followed by an open dialogue on borders and their manifestation in our working lives.

While many conversations about privilege and equity in the arts seem to get stuck, artists are actively addressing social inequity and injustice head on. Through creative activism, cultural organizing, and producing provocative artworks, art makers are tackling tough issues despite the obstacles before them. This intimate discussion with Raquel Almazan, Kyoung H. Park, Morley and Fury Young, panelists and audience members are encouraged to participate in a dialogue about confronting privilege, social hierarchies, and their pursuits of cultural equity through art making. Participants are asked to consider their own social advantages and disadvantages, and how it is used in their creative process. How are we expanding the cultural diversity narrative through creative works? This discussion will be moderated by Rasu Jilani.

Faces of Resistance: Young, Organized & Unified (#FORYOU)

Produced in Association with MAPP International Productions and Critical Partner, Culturebot

Curated by MAPP International Productions

The first of five season-wide events in New York Live Arts’ Open Spectrum series of community dialogues is dedicated to recognizing the current creative and social resistance movements in America responding to everything from Police Brutality to Mass Incarceration to Mass Deportation. Faces of Resistance: Young, Organized & Unified (#FORYOU) is a public forum that serves as a gathering of trailblazers who have started various movements in response to injustice in Ferguson, Baltimore, Charleston, and The Dominican Republic. #FORYOU is intended to take the audience and participants on an inquiry-based journey through the questions: Who are the people behind these movements? What prompted their responses? How do they convene? What are some practices we can share to organize? What does victory look like?

This year's Fresh Tracks features works by Melanie Greene, Sarah Lifson, Eli Tamondong, EmmaGrace Skove-Epes and Jonathan Gonzalez, and Georgia Wall and Itamar Segev.

Melanie Greene’s Performing Okay conjures a curious contradiction of meaning, quality, and intention as one word sits simultaneously within competing body and language narratives. It sparks questions surrounding repetition, physicality, and language.

Sarah Lifson’s i eat pancakes for dinner is freedom, free will, and free verse. It concerns itself with consumption, and the active vs. passive infiltration of information into our cells.

Melding dance and spoken word, Eli Tamondong’s Feast or Famine struggles with American masculinity and love through a queer Filipino boy’s eyes. Tinikling, a traditional Philippine dance, and ballet collide over golf commentary and gay sex, coming-of-age in a world of fetishization and colonized bodies. Entangled by white love, how does this boy find value in all colors?

Mining collaborative as well as personal movement histories, EmmaGrace Skove-Epes and Jonathan Gonzalez’s yet-to-be-titled work investigates the disparities and similarities that lie between our bodies culturally, socially, and artistically. Harmony and dissonance continually emerge in their identity markers as a queer identified white woman and a queer identified brown man. While experimenting with the physical aspects of disorientation, duration, momentum, and intimacy, the manifold aspects of their identities, creative visions, and creative histories also become physical realities at play.

In Pose for Prom Prayer, Georgia Wall and Itamar Segev are topless, wearing only baggy white cotton briefs which resemble diapers or modern day loincloths. They merge and disperse, searching and subverting trying, to burst open lust and prayer. Georgia loves to alter her body. Itamar can make her cry when he sings.

New York Live Arts’ debut music series features yMusic, a genre defying, indie-classical ensemble comprised of six New York City instrumentalists flourishing in the overlap between the pop and classical worlds. Their virtuosic execution and unique configuration (string trio, flute, clarinet and trumpet) has attracted the attention of high profile collaborators—from Dirty Projectors to Ben Folds, Bon Iver and Beck—and evolved to become one of the great forces shaping contemporary music today.

For this debut season, they will perform commissioned works by contemporary composers Marcos Balter, an artist “making big waves lately for his adventurous, unpredictable work” (The New York Times); Paul Corley, “a masterful sculptor of sound” (Textura); the “fresh and vibrant” (The Classical Review) Mark Dancigers; Paul Wiancko; Nate Thatcher; Qasim Naqvi; and Robert Sirota, known by The New York Times  as “One to reckon with.”

The series culminates in December with a special one-week run featuring a world premiere composition by Marcos Balter, created in collaboration with and for legendary choreographers Bill T. Jones and Dianne McIntyre.

New York Live Arts 50 & Change Commission

Miguel Gutierrez, “one of our most provocative and necessary artistic voices” (Dance Magazine), culminates his extraordinary Age & Beauty series with the New York City premiere of Part 3 and the presentation of the full series in one theater over two weeks. Gutierrez’s highly anticipated project consists of a three-part suite of queer performance works addressing the representation of the dancer, the physical and emotional labor of performance, tropes about the aging gay choreographer, the interaction of art making with administration, “queer time,” futurity and mid-life anxieties about relevance, sustainability and artistic burnout. The Age & Beauty Series is the first of three co-presentations in the fall of 2015 between Live Arts and the French Institute Alliance Française’s Crossing the Line Festival.

Age & Beauty Part 3: DANCER or You can make whatever the fuck you want but you’ll only tour solos or The Powerful People or We are strong/We are powerful/We are beautiful/We are divine or &:’/// is the third and culminating chapter of the series. Performed by Gutierrez along with an intergenerational cast, whose immediate physical representation is not as a “dancer,” the piece envisions a future dripping with lamentation, aspiration, melancholy, fantasy and doubt: a choreography for the end of the world.    

Age & Beauty Part 3 is commissioned by New York Live Arts for its 50 & Change Commission series with support from the National Endowment for the Arts and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs.

The Age & Beauty Series is supported in part by the New England Foundation for the Arts’ National Dance Project, with lead funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

Produced by Ben Pryor / tbspMGMT.

Bill T. Jones with Associate Artistic Director, Janet Wong, and his company are developing three new evening-length works titled, Analogy: A Trilogy. This trilogy brings into light the different types of war we fight and, in particular, the war within ourselves. Analogy: A Trilogy searches for the connection between three varying stories; focusing on memory and the effect of powerful events on the actions of individuals and, more importantly, on their often unexpressed inner life. Jones continues his exploration of how text, storytelling and movement pull and push against each other and how another experience can be had through the combination and recombination of these elements. 

In Analogy/Lance: Pretty aka the Escape Artist, we meet Lance, whose battles with his own personal demons-drugs and excess- exposes us to another type of war. It was the battlefield of the nightlife and underworld of the late 80s and early 90s club culture and sex trade. This “pretty boy-gangster thug”, a name he acquired in prison, holds steadfast to his often tragic and sometimes outrageously humorous narrative, while facing an uncertain future.

US Premiere

Part political summit, part multi-media opera, part protest Hafez’s 2065 BC is a displaced and revisited re-enactment of the infamous ‘Berlin Conference’ of 1884 presenting a complex set of questions around the ethics of occupation in a manner that is dark, comic and politically ignited. In the year 2065, a conference of African scientists, politicians and diplomats gather in Berlin to announce the new world order. “2065 BC” is the result of a two-year research process on politics and aesthetics, developed and directed by the Adham Hafez Company and the platform HaRaKa. The research took place in Cairo, Berlin and New York, and continues to unfold its many products in the form of a performance triptych and publications series.

The Body Against Body program is an intimate and focused collection of duet works drawn from the Company’s 30 year history. Bill T. Jones returns to his roots in the avant-garde with a program that revives and reconsiders the challenging, groundbreaking works that launched Jones and the late Arnie Zane, his partner and collaborator of 17 years. Still some of the most significant examples of the postmodern aesthetic, these pieces redefined the duet form and changed the face of American dance. Both conceptually and physically rigorous, the works take on new life through the diverse dancers of Jones’s company, providing a rare look at the origins of a widely acclaimed choreographer.

Bill T. Jones returns to Europe with a new site-specific work: A Letter to My Nephew/Pretty

This letter to Jones’ nephew is a music and dance driven study using movement motifs that reference a troubled life in show business, the sex trade and the hard job of growing up. This is a celebration and meditation on the life of Lance T. Briggs.

Composer Nick Hallett will accompany the stunning dancers of the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company with a delirious mixture of lullabies, rhythm and blues and house music. The music will be performed/mixed live onstage while the dance evokes a ballet class, a lively disco and more undefinable interior landscapes.

Ravel: Landscape or Portrait? (2012) responds to Maurice Ravel’s String Quartet in F Major (1903), reflecting the wistful and melancholic sentiment of the score as well as its precision and restraint. Similar to the music’s complicated internal logic, one of two choreographic variations for the third movement (either landscape or portrait) is selected by chance procedure before each performance. The New York Times describes the work as “made up of protean tableaus” with “Arresting moments…continually absorbed into the flow.”

Story/ (2013) is a continuation of the Company’s investigation in using indeterminacy as a choreographic tool. Following the model for the acclaimed Story/Time, the work employs a random menu of movement that is interrogated by Franz Schubert’s String Quartet No 14 in D Minor (Death and the Maiden) to craft an energetic conversation between the music and movement. Called a “strong” work with “compellingly enigmatic duets…’Story/’ is alive with glimpses of ordinary life” (The New York Times).

Analogy/Dora: Tramontane  is based on an oral history Jones conducted with 95-year old Dora Amelan, a French Jewish nurse & social worker. Amelan’s harrowing, touching and inspirational story is broken into approximately 30 episodes that become the basis for choreography and songs. These episodes chronicle her early life in Belgium, her mother’s death as the Germans were marching into Belgium and her experiences working at an underground Jewish organization in Vichy France’s internment camps, Gurs & Rivesaltes. Here is a portrait of the ability to persevere and survive.

Set to Mendelssohn’s Octet in E-flat Major for Strings, Op. 20, D-Man in the Waters (1989, revised 1998) is Jones’s joyful tour de force and was recently reconstructed in full for the first time since 2002. The New York Dance and Performance “Bessie” Award-winning classic is a celebration of life and the resiliency of the human spirit that embodies loss, hope and triumph. The New York Times stated, “Rarely has one seen a dance company throw itself onto the stage with such kinetic exaltation,” and Financial Times raved that “D-Man in the Waters radiates the clarity of love.”

Spent Days Out Yonder (2001) is a pure musical exploration, rare in the Bill T. Jones canon, a meditation on the second movement of Mozart’s String Quartet No. 23 in F Major. The choreography is firmly rooted in Jones’s elegant, weighted movement vocabulary, paired with a sublime score performed live by a local string octet.

Continuous Replay (1977, 1991) is a work that traces Arnie Zane’s interests in photography and film. Originally choreographed by Zane in 1977 as a solo titled Hand Dance and later revised as a group work by Bill T. Jones in 1991, ContinuousReplay is based on 45 precise gestures accumulated in space and time. A work that “sticks in the mind” (New York Theater Wire), Continuous Replay “is a thorough primer in Jones/Zane style: sharp versus flowing, large versus small, straight versus angled” (The New York Times). A new score by Jerome Begin incorporates material from Ludwig Van Beethoven's String Quartet Op. 18 No. 1 and String Quartet Op. 135.

Ravel: Landscape or Portrait? (2012) responds to Maurice Ravel’s String Quartet in F Major (1903), reflecting the wistful and melancholic sentiment of the score as well as its precision and restraint. Similar to the music’s complicated internal logic, one of two choreographic variations for the third movement (either landscape or portrait) is selected by chance procedure before each performance. The New York Times describes the work as “made up of protean tableaus” with “Arresting moments…continually absorbed into the flow.”

Story/ (2013) is a continuation of the Company’s investigation in using indeterminacy as a choreographic tool. Following the model for the acclaimed Story/Time, the work employs a random menu of movement that is interrogated by Franz Schubert’s String Quartet No 14 in D Minor (Death and the Maiden) to craft an energetic conversation between the music and movement. Called a “strong” work with “compellingly enigmatic duets…’Story/’ is alive with glimpses of ordinary life” (The New York Times).

Story/Time (2012) is inspired by legendary artist and composer John Cage’s Indeterminacy (1958)a work in which Cage sat alone on stage reading an unbroken stream of one-minute stories to a small audience. In Story/Time, Bill T. Jones reads his own one-minute stories amidst a spellbinding landscape of dance and original music composed and mixed live by collaborator Ted Coffey. Mentored by Cage's modernist approach and governed by chance procedures, this “wondrously original” (Dance Magazine) and “radically engaging” (The Minneapolis Star-Tribune) work is an ever-changing score that yields a unique performance each night. The San Francisco Chronicle called it “…a dance theater rollercoaster with surprises around every corner.”

Story/Time was co-commissioned by Peak Performances at Montclair State University (NJ) and the Walker Art Center.

Analogy/Dora: Tramontane  is based on an oral history Jones conducted with 95-year old Dora Amelan, a French Jewish nurse & social worker. Amelan’s harrowing, touching and inspirational story is broken into approximately 30 episodes that become the basis for choreography and songs. These episodes chronicle her early life in Belgium, her mother’s death as the Germans were marching into Belgium and her experiences working at an underground Jewish organization in Vichy France’s internment camps, Gurs & Rivesaltes. Here is a portrait of the ability to persevere and survive.

Spent Days Out Yonder (2001) is a pure musical exploration, rare in the Bill T. Jones canon, a meditation on the second movement of Mozart’s String Quartet No. 23 in F Major. The choreography is firmly rooted in Jones’s elegant, weighted movement vocabulary, paired with a sublime score performed live by a local string octet. As The New York Times states, “.it offers a clearer look at the tension between loose swing and angular articulation in Mr. Jones’s movement. It shows his skill in establishing a foreground and a background while letting them blend.”

Two pillars of Austin's exploding performing arts scene—Rude Mechs, known for their eclectic and "remarkable" (New York Magazine) performance experiments spanning nearly 20 years, and Deborah Hay, the acclaimed choreographer with a “mischievous sense of play” (The New York Times)—are at the heart of Match-Play, a big-stakes play created by Rude Mechs and adapted from Hay’s New York Dance and Performance “Bessie” Award winning dance, The Match (2004). A haunting, sometimes hysterical yet sincere meditation on consciousness, Match-Play collages liminal texts from the notebooks of preeminent theater artist Richard Foreman with Ms. Hay’s written score and original text by Kirk Lynn. With Rude Mechs’ trademark penchant for slapstick and innovative staging, Match-Play hovers between hallucination and insight, tackling the overarching frame for Ms. Hay’s “handsome” (The New York Times) work: “What if every cell in the body has the potential to perceive all time and space as unique and original. And it’s no big deal.” The result is a tragicomic coaster ride exploring our cultural need for spectacle, our preoccupation with novelty and our ability (or inability) to connect the ordinary moments of life with the extraordinariness of living. Featuring SITI Company’s Barney O’Hanlon, don't miss Rude Mechs’ quirky and meditative exploration of the depths (and shallows) of the human mind.

New York Live Arts 50 & Change Commission

Jen Rosenblit--a choreographer lauded for her “Sly, tender and spatially sophisticated” (The New York Times) performance pieces--returns to Live Arts to present her newest work. Clap Hands is a mating call, a solo for the body that needs bodies. While conceptually a solo, the work will navigate its form through multiple bodies and objects. Each element constantly emerges from itself through a process of self-fertilization without resorting to pattern, ritual or husbandry. Fuchsia felted set pieces install the space, enacting a sort of still life and hailing the functional while demanding flamboyance. Clap Hands asks: Does the establishment of this new “thingness" shift the solo figure out of demand? Is intimacy still located within non-human forms?

Clap Hands is commissioned by New York Live Arts for its 50 & Change Commission series with support from the National Endowment for the Arts and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs.

Produced by Alexandra Rosenberg/Rosie Management.

The critically acclaimed, Obie award-winning theater ensemble Half Straddle will make their Live Arts debut with the world premiere of Ghost Rings. Driven by an original song cycle, the work is inspired by elements of live band dynamics, graphic novels, and music videos and tells the story of two friends taking the ultimate leap into adulthood. With text and lyrics by Tina Satter, the “genre-and-gender-bending, visually exacting stage artist” (The New York Times) and music by Chris Giarmo and Erin Markey, the show unfurls a narrative of contemporary friendship and family-making told through virtuosic performances and evocative design. Mixing deadpan magical realism with the considerations of feminist thinkers like Maggie Nelson and Michelle Tea, the resulting piece is a tender, harrowingly funny, unexpected musical experience. 

Ghost Rings is commissioned by New York Live Arts for its 50 & Change Commission series with support from the National Endowment for the Arts and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs.

Rebecca Lazier makes her New York Live Arts debut with her movement-based realization of Terry Riley’s seminal masterpiece IN C, performed with a live score by Dan Trueman in collaboration with members of two of today’s most vital ensembles, SÅŒ Percussion and Mobius Percussion. Created along with a diverse group of artists, designers and scientists, and featuring an international cadre of performers, the work questions the role of presence, performer agency and collective decision-making to create emergent forms. Known for her “intelligent, fine control of complex material” (The Village Voice) showcasing an “exciting immediacy” (The New York Times), this extraordinary collaboration features dramaturgy and design by Naomi Leonard, Davison Scandrett and Mary Jo Mecca, as well as acclaimed dancers Asli Bulbul, Simon Courchel, Natalie Green, Cori Kresge, Christopher Ralph and Saúl Ulerio.

Welcome to the Champagne Room: a magical hideaway open to the public for an exclusive, limited engagement by hip-hop sensation Champagne Jerry. Joining him are his onstage entourage of miscreants known as the Champagne Club, a rotating cast of others including Neal Medlyn, Adam Horovitz, Kathleen Hanna, Bridget Everett, the House of Larreon, Carmine Covelli and a series of real and invented bands. Revel in a world of cheap gold, dance, effervescence and memories to last a lifetime via a one-time-only epic performance event celebrating the release of CJ’s new album; an acclaimed, sold-out tour of Wal-Mart and Sam’s Club parking lots across the Southeastern seaboard from the back of a van; and a suite of videos directed by Jason Cacioppo. “Simultaneously catchy, affecting, creepy, endearing, funny, puzzling, and profoundly strange” (Blouin ARTINFO), this is Champagne Jerry in the Champagne Room featuring Neal Medlyn.

Arkadi Zaides (Israel) is known for creating works that exude a “soft, silken power” (The New York Times). Featuring footage filmed by volunteers of B’Tselem’s Camera Project, ARCHIVE brings the viewers’ attention to the Israeli body, bringing life to the visceral physical reactions resorted to in various confrontational situations. Through Archive, Zaides asks: What is the potential for violence embedded in each individual body?

New York Live Arts 50 & Change Commission

Art world provocateur Ann Liv Young catapults her radical version of Sophocles’ Elektra to the stage in her first American commission since 2008. Young’s Elektra is volatile, authentic, honest, compassionate, steadfast and tragic. Created in collaboration with Annie Dorsen, the epic evening begins with her potent and corporeal vision of Sophocles’ story of a family steeped in murder, revenge, and deception - Young plays the title role with an intrepid cast of performers (including her 8-year-old daughter, Lovey), cycling through versions of the text splintered by pop songs and sequences of bold, jarring movement. A lush intermission features performances by a special musical guest from Norway, drowning the theater and inviting a visit to the lobby bar. The evening rages on with Young’s critically acclaimed, rough and tumble Elektra Cabaret. Exploring the fine line between following the social flow and being a responsible and decisive agent, Elektra wants everyone to question, to pay attention, and to break free from the yoke of social norms and act as an engaged individual.

This performance contains adult content. 

Additional Events:

Jan 21 Post Show Discussion with Annie Dorsen. 

Jan 31, 2-4pm, Shared Practice: Sherapy, $20.

Elektra is commissioned by New York Live Arts for its 50 & Change Commission series with support from the National Endowment for the Arts and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs.

Elektra is a co-production of steirischer herbst Festival (Graz, Austria) and Gessnerallee Zurich (Switzerland).

New York Live Arts 50 & Change Commission

Stay Late conversation, Friday, December 4th moderated by Michèle Steinwald.

Merging dance, live music and visual arts, Choreographer/Director Pavel Zuštiak examines the multiplicity of concepts of beauty and its permanence within art in Custodians of Beauty. The new work forges towards abstraction, minimalism, and restrained expressive modes while amplifying the potency of an image, as well as the human body as sculpture, emotional trigger, or political symbol. Zuštiak continues his acclaimed working relationship with composter/musician Christian Frederickson and lighting designer Joe Levasseur. Zuštiak is the 2015 Juried Award Recipient for The New York Dance and Performance “Bessie” Awards. 

In an age when humanity, disenchanted with itself, seems to have rejected the necessity of beauty, Custodians of Beauty asks us to look again, beyond the surface, to see differently. Where do we find beauty today and does it need our defense?

 

Custodians of Beauty is a National Performance Network (NPN) Creation Fund Project co-commissioned by New York Live Arts in partnership with Walker Arts Center, Legion Arts and NPN. The Creation Fund is supported by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, Ford Foundation, and the National Endowment for the Arts (a federal agency). The Forth Fund is supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. For more information: www.npnweb.org.

Custodians of Beauty is supported by Jerome Foundation. It will have its world premiere at American Dance Institute (ADI) as part of ADI’s Incubator program.

Rotterdam based performance gang Wunderbaum is pulling no punches in their highly anticipated New York premiere. It’s Inez van Dam vs. Kabouter Buttplug, the notorious sculpture by infamous artist Paul McCarthy. Inez lived a simple, serene life in Rotterdam until the installation of the so-called “Buttplug Gnome.” Inez thinks this work of public art is ruining her street, her very life, and she’s heading to Los Angeles to track down McCarthy and take revenge. But can this defiant citizen defeat the indelible force of contemporary art? Who funded this so-called art anyway? Could her hard-earned taxes have contributed to this? Wunderbaum has graciously invited Inez, en route to LA, to make her case in New York City. Designer Maarten van Otterdijk, along with actors and creators Walter Bart, Inez van Dam, Matijs Jansen, Maartje Remmers, Marleen Scholten and guest Daniel Frankl, bring her story to life. Join Live Arts for the New York City premiere of Looking for Paul, a genre-colliding work that questions art’s purpose, how it gets made and the international funding systems that support its existence, all through the lens of McCarthy’s controversial work.

A solo creation at the intersection of theater, dance and visual art installation, Bronx Gothic gives palpable force to the charged relationship between two girls on the verge of adolescence in 1980s outer-borough New York City--where Newports are bought in singles at the corner deli, sex saturated notes are passed in class, and Orchard Beach erupts in flame.

Returning for a command run, Okwui Okpokwasili’s acclaimed, New York Dance and Performance “Bessie” Award winning piece has been hailed as a breakthrough work, and is envisioned for Live Arts’ stage as part of a multi-year collaboration with the artist. Hers is a performance of psychic and physical collisions that threaten to break the body—an unflinching look into the exquisite turbulence of one woman’s memory. Created in collaboration with Peter Born, Bronx Gothic draws inspiration from Victorian-era novels and West African griot storytelling to reveal a dark and powerful tale of sexual awakening, the body in transformation and the humor, love, strangeness and even terror that accompany it. “In language that is by turns blunt and poetic, crudely funny and incantatory, Ms. Okpokwasili conjures and probes this adolescent friendship, a jumble of insults, anger and love…A magnetic performer” (The New York Times). 

Bronx Gothic was co-commissioned by Performance Space 122, Danspace Project, LMCC and a 50th Anniversary Grant from the Jerome Foundation with residency support from Under Construction at the Armory, New York Live Arts, Baryshnikov Arts Center and as part of LMCC’s Extended Life Dance Development program. Additional commissioning support was provided by Le Mallion in Strasbourg, ThéaÌ‚tre de Gennevilliers in Paris, Theatre Garonne in Toulouse and ZagrebacÌŒko KazalisÌŒte Mladih (ZMK), the Zagreb Youth Theatre in Zagreb, Croatia.

Co-Presented with the French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF)'s Crossing the Line Festival 2015.

A rising star quickly becoming one of Europe’s most celebrated dance artists, Italian performer, choreographer and director Alessandro Sciarroni makes his New York Live Arts debut with Folk-s, will you still love me tomorrow?. A performative and choreographic practice focusing on time, Folk-s, will you still love me tomorrow? springs from the idea of ancient folk dances as popular phenomena that have survived contemporaneity. Dancers perform the Schuhplattler, a typical Bavarian and Tyrolean dance that means “shoe batter” and literally consists of hitting one’s shoes and legs with one’s hands. The result is a deeply rhythmic and auditory work that presents dance as a rule, a dictatorship and a flux of images that follow the form, not the content. Called "...a meticulous work, capable of exciting progressively through a reiteration of actions that becomes dramaturgy" (La Repubblica), the folk material finds its clearest revelation in a loop of percussive repetition, geographically and culturally decontextualized. Folk-s, will you still love me tomorrow?  is the final of three co-presentations in the fall of 2015 between Live Arts and the French Institute Alliance Française’s Crossing the Line Festival.

Co-Presented with the French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF)'s Crossing the Line Festival 2015 and the Hermès Foundation’s (Fondation d'entreprise Hermès) New Settings Program.

Lives is an observance of oneself from three different points of view. It is a revisitation, unraveling and reworking of Moini’s 2008 work My Paradoxical Life, presenting a single blueprint from a multifaceted self. Trained as a musician and singer in his native Iran, Moini is known for works that tackle themes like the fragmentation of identity, the mutability of existence, and the search for selfhood, many of which are present in Lives. Featuring video, design and props, the work uses meticulous amplification to multiply Moini’s voice, words and narratives, encouraging an exploration of the myriad possibilities for self-dialogue. Lives is the second of three co-presentations in the fall of 2015 between Live Arts and the French Institute Alliance Française’s Crossing the Line Festival.

Co-Presented with the French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF)'s Crossing the Line Festival 2015.

Miguel Gutierrez, “one of our most provocative and necessary artistic voices” (Dance Magazine), culminates his extraordinary Age & Beauty series with the New York City premiere of Part 3 and the presentation of the full series in one theater over two weeks. Gutierrez’s highly anticipated project consists of a three-part suite of queer performance works addressing the representation of the dancer, the physical and emotional labor of performance, tropes about the aging gay choreographer, the interaction of art making with administration, “queer time,” futurity and mid-life anxieties about relevance, sustainability and artistic burnout. The Age & Beauty Series is the first of three co-presentations in the fall of 2015 between Live Arts and the French Institute Alliance Française’s Crossing the Line Festival.

Age & Beauty Part 2: Asian Beauty @ the Werq Meeting or The Choreographer & Her Muse or &:@& deals with Gutierrez’s long-term creative/work relationships and features performer/choreographer Michelle Boulé, arts manager Ben Pryor and lighting designer Lenore Doxsee. The piece harnesses retrospection and Gutierrez’s archives of his past work to demonstrate how relationships, money and flights of fancy are at the center of all art making.

The Age & Beauty Series is supported in part by the New England Foundation for the Arts’ National Dance Project, with lead funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

Age & Beauty Part 1: Mid-Career Artist/Suicide Note or &:-/ is a duet for 43-year-old Gutierrez and 24-year-old performer/dancer Mickey Mahar. Moving from precise unison dances to an irreverent and celebratory corruption of orderliness, the work suggests modes of communication where hyper-emotional affect is not only the conceptual and choreographic core of the performance, but also the sole hope for continuing in this messed up world.

The Age & Beauty Series is supported in part by the New England Foundation for the Arts’ National Dance Project, with lead funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

Star dancer of Édouard Lock’s La La La Human Steps from 1981 to 1999 and heralded as “the Madonna of contemporary dance” by The Washington Post, 56 year old Louise Lecavalier is a force of nature known worldwide for her artistic stamina, power and grace, birthing a movement style unlike any other. The first Canadian to win a New York Dance and Performance “Bessie” Award in 1985 for Businessman in the Process of Becoming an Angel, presented by Dance Theater Workshop, Lecavalier returns to present the New York City premiere of her first extended piece of choreography, So Blue.

Recently awarded Toronto’s Dora Mavor Moore Award for Outstanding Production, So Blue was conceived and choreographed by Lecavalier with assistance from collaborator France Bruyère. With an intensely rhythmic soundtrack featuring Montréal composer and atypical world-music artist Mercan Dede, the work is performed by Lecavalier and Frédéric Tavernini, the “host of corporeal seismic shifts” (Fjord Review). The movement is inspired by simple, everyday gestures infused with speed, repetition, abstraction and theatricality.

Analogy: A Trilogy

“Memory, often strikes me as a kind of dumbness. It makes one’s head heavy and giddy, as if one were not looking back down the receding perspectives of time but rather down on the earth from a great height, from one of those towers whose tops are lost to view in the clouds.” –W.G.Sebald

Bill T. Jones with Associate Artistic Director, Janet Wong, and his company are developing three new evening-length works titled, Analogy: A Trilogy. This trilogy brings into light the different types of war we fight and, in particular, the war within ourselves. Analogy: A Trilogy searches for the connection between three varying stories; focusing on memory and the effect of powerful events on the actions of individuals and, more importantly, on their often unexpressed inner life. Jones continues his exploration of how text, storytelling and movement pull and push against each other and how another experience can be had through the combination and recombination of these elements. 

Jones’ present preoccupation is with the development of his company into an ensemble that not only dances beautifully, but also sings and speaks. Members of the company will deliver texts from all narratives.

Jones first began his exploration of Analogy: A Trilogy through reading W.G. Sebald’s The Emigrants. Inspired by the novelistic creation, he wanted something to compare to the character Ambros Adelwarth from the individuals around Jones himself. He began an oral history with Dora Amelan. Originally intended as a gift to her sons to capture their mother’s memory, he became fascinated not only with Dora’s story, but with her character. As Jones began development on Analogy: A Trilogy, based on Dora’s stories, he felt that she needed a more percussive counterpoint. He began a conversation with his nephew, Lance, a young African-American man in the middle of his life with an uncertain future. All three stories, while wildly different ruminate on the nature of service, duty and the question of what is a life well lived.

Composer Nick Hallett is creating original music informed by the text as well as a soundscape that combines German Romantic Lieder, songs from both world wars, the 50s and 60s classic pop music and the club music from the 80s and 90s. Hallett, pianist Emily Manzo and the ensemble will perform the music live.

Analogy/Dora: Tramontane

tra-mon-tane adjective \trÉ™-ˈmän-ËŒtān, ËŒtra-mÉ™n-ˈ\ 1. traveling to, situated on, or living on the other side of a mountain; latin transmontanus “beyond the mountains”

Analogy/Dora: Tramontane is based on an oral history Jones conducted with 94-year old Dora Amelan, a French Jewish nurse & social worker. Amelan’s harrowing, touching and inspirational story is broken into approximately 25 episodes that become the basis for choreography and songs. These episodes chronicle her early life in Belgium, her mother’s death as the Germans were marching into Belgium and her experiences working at an underground Jewish organization in Vichy France’s internment camps, Gurs & Rivesaltes. Here is a portrait of the ability to persevere and survive. 

Analogy/Lance: Pretty aka The Escape Artist

In Analogy/Lance: Pretty aka The Escape Artist, we meet Lance, whose battles with his own personal demons-drugs and excess- exposes us to another type of war. It was the battlefield of the nightlife and underworld of the late 80s and early 90s club culture and sex trade. This “pretty boy-gangster thug”, a name he acquired in prison, holds steadfast to his often tragic and sometimes outrageously humorous narrative, while facing an uncertain future. 

Analogy/Ambros: The Emigrant

Analogy/Ambros: The Emigrant is Jones’ reaction to Ambros Adelwarth from W.G.Sebald’s celebrated historical novel, The Emigrants. This narrative, through a fictionalized history, strives to suggest how an experience of trauma can go underground in the psyche of an individual and direct consciously and unconsciously the course of that individual’s life. The central figure, Ambros Adelwarth, is a German valet/manservant who serves as companion to a privileged, dissipated, young scion of a wealthy Jewish family. This restrained and evocative narrative tracks Ambros’ experience working at hotels, the glamorous travels with his charge, Cosmo, through Europe and the Middle East on the eve of WWI and then his life after Cosmo’s death.

Elisa Monte Dance, Buglisi Dance Theatre and Jennifer Muller/The Works join forces to present Reflections on Water..... in a series of five shared program performances featuring four pieces, two world premieres, 26 Dancers and six noted designers.

Three distinguished choreographers at the height of their careers, each with a powerful original voice offer observations on water - the source or destruction of life. The programs includes four diverse pieces and features two world premieres.

The three choreographers create work from three unique points of view, yet share a sensibility that combines virtuostic movement with an expressive edge that moves minds and hearts – work that dances full out yet speaks of both individual experiences and shared humanity.

The 26 extraordinary performers push physical capability, standing out as an individuals yet working in cohesive ensembles.

Monte/Buglisi/Muller LIVE! offers the opportunity to experience three acclaimed dance companies together on one stage!

Alchemy (Muller/World Premiere) is a piece about the crucible of change. Originally a forerunner of chemistry, alchemy concerned itself with transformation. The physical transmutation of matter became an analogy for the internal alchemy of spiritual revelation  Just as new growth forests are created by controlled burning, personal evolution often needs a violent catalyst to create a glimmer of enlightenment. Alchemy is a cutting-edge collaboration with immersive projection designer Mark Bolotin of Hyphen-Hub, seconded by Edward Roth fashion designers Marco Pizzato and Nairi Barseh and Tony award-winning lighting designer Jeff Croiter.

Hurricane Deck (Monte) “Hurricane Deck is a piece of conflict and turmoil, emotional upheaval. Love gone wrong. The 4 couples embrace and combat simultaneously  seeking the truth and trying to regain trust.  Alternative endings have been created, each is left to the performers to choice at the conclusion of the piece of each performance. Will trust and love or doubt and enmity be that evenings outcome?”  ~Elisa Monte. Music by Pulitzer Prize winner David Lang, one of the most highly-esteemed and performed American composers writing today. His works have been performed around the world and in many of the great concert halls.

Sand (Buglisi) is the first of Buglisi’s environmental trilogy. Set to Philip Glass’s brilliant and beautiful string quartet, the ballet is inspired by the beauty of the desert and the soil of the earth we so cherish for our existence.

Sacred Landscapes 1 (Buglisi/World Premiere) In a world in upheaval by climate change and economic turmoil, where the teachings of religion and science collide, we seek to rediscover and restore our ancient connection to the sacred landscapes that have grounded and inspired us. Set to a commissioned score by the visionary composer Paola Prestini with projection design by Jack Mehler, Buglisi’s new work, dedicated to the boundless flow of our planet’s water, explores the belief that sacred landscapes are passageways that facilitate access to a higher realm.

Elisa Monte Dance, Buglisi Dance Theatre and Jennifer Muller/the Works'  presentation at New York Live Arts is made possible through New York Live Arts’ Theater Access Program. The Theater Access Program is a comprehensive subsidized rental program benefiting a diverse group of dance and theater companies and producing organizations

Each of the five unique concerts consist of solos by the students, ages 8 – 18, and the following group pieces: Rainforest and New Work - 6/5 at 7:30, Secret Service & Garden Party 6/6 at 3pm, Walkaround Vermeer – 6/6 at 7:30pm, Waterstudy & Swatch – 6/7 at noon, and Ode & New Work – 6/7 at 4PM.

“…at first amazes and then glides into the mystical… dropping... This dance form, these artists, won’t be boxed in.”
 —The New York Times

Mikey & Jaer vs Rachet & Dread
Shellz & Lilbit vs Kat & Cindy
Knucks & Caspers vs Droopz & Vypa
Keevin & Richie vs Tuggz & Beast
Magic & Kellz vs Wayne & Terry
X & Killa vs Dre & Nicc
Slicc & Brixx vs Droid & Ace

Following their sold-out, acclaimed run at Park Avenue Armory, the FLEXN phenomenon comes to New York Live Arts in its rawest form: the Battle. Featuring dancers from across the country, the Battle presents the ultimate forum for the boldest and baddest innovators to challenge and push each other to new extremes, revealing the latest moves and groundbreaking grooves where one winner takes all. 

Flex is the latest, genre-defining form of street dance evolved from the Jamaican bruk-up found in dance halls and reggae clubs in Brooklyn. Characterized by pausing, snapping, gliding, bone breaking, hat tricks, animation, and contortion, this electrifying phenomenon confronts issues of social injustice and the expressive capacity of urban dance like no form before it.

Presented by The D.R.E.A.M. Ring in association with New York Live Arts.
