Sunrise, to music by Ryan Brown, a vivid impression of a daily miracle that most people sleep through. (Mary Cargill, Danceviewtimes.com)

 

Gravity, to music by Friedrich Cerha, featuring a trio of dancers falling and being supported as their bodies merged and melded with an astringent lyricism. (Mary Cargill, Danceviewtimes.com)

 Carmen
 
An addictive fire of passion, love triangle and tragedy.
 
Venue: ( Hostos Ctr. Arts and Culture)

Producer: ( Ajkun Ballet Theatre)
Ajkun Ballet Theatre
City: Bronx

Additional Notes:
Unmatched for passion, jealousy, and a love triangle turned into crime of passion, Carmen is set to Bizets stirring music, blazed by the dramatic voice of “La Divina” Maria Callas, and groundbreaking in its realism.Chiara Ajkuns choreography portrays Carmen as a leader of change for womens free choices. Set apart by her taunting beauty, Carmen lays eyes on Don Josè. Explosive sparks follow, and the ultimate romance of love and passion keeps the audience on the edge of their seats.“[Ajkuns] Carmen is superb…an outstanding success…[her choreography is] a masterly application in technique…wonderfullymore elaborate buildings up and much finer characterization of the various personalities”London Times - Maria Ghirlando

 Studies in Living Otherwise
 
Studies in Living Otherwise is the gestation of five dance/performance works that move through collective practices of presence, memory, storytelling and abstraction. We ask how can we center the Other and other the center? We answer by digging underground pathways to alternative ways of (not) being, remembering, un/doing and dancing.

Additional Notes:
Choreographers: Nia Love, Jesse Phillips-Fein, Alex Pitre, Veleda Roehl & Emmagrace Skove-Epes with Gyrchel Moor.g1(host)#4, by Nia Love, is a work in 'part'(s). I am interested in the happening of a 'part,' a gesture and/or posture that has alliance with historical otherness and yield clues that create a sensory gateway. The task to reframe what is memory and how it is held. This solo work is never “set,” but rather resets and is random. In the process, I hope to recover bits and pieces of [my]self that have over the course of my life appeared lost, shattered and chiasmatic.Based on the deep research of five actions through practices of stamina and endurance, nothing,is,about,nothing by Jesse Phillips-Fein queries the (im)possibilities of abstracting our bodies. How is meaning made and unmade? What happens when we allow gestures to exceed their intentions? Alex Pitre will share the process of Context and Reconstruction. I feel a thing when I sing that song. What is the thing I feel? The story is a question — memory's existence nags at me to pull it apart. Can I hold onto the past without rewriting its narrative to become the Good White Person?Sista Wolf and Mother Love: an urban folktale, by Veleda Roehl. Two sisters born under an oath…one destiny beyond imagination. A collaborative work that uses traditional and contemporary dance to tell the story of two families, wolf and human, whose lives are intertwined.In search of mirrors, and catch the light just right, by EmmaGrace Skove-Epes in collaboration with Gyrchel Moore, is the enactment of a desire to be at once in public and in private, to construct and unravel real, remembered, and imagined environments in which we seek intimacy and self-preservation through knowing but not naming, finding solid ground without claiming to know. Where does the invisible yet tangibly felt, leak, seep out and stain? (We listen for it, with the buzzing of our skin.)
