Forces of Nature Dance Theatre

Forces of Nature Dance Theatre Company was founded by Executive Artistic Director Abdel R. Salaam, Executive Managing Director Olabamidele Husbands, and company member Dyane Harvey in 1981. The group has produced ballet and concert pieces and offered dance classes and educational programs in New York and throughout the world for over 36 years.

Forces of Nature performs a unique blend of contemporary modern dance, traditional West African and neo-African dance, contemporary ballet, house and hip-hop forms, and martial arts. The company has performed and toured widely throughout the US and abroad. In addition to annual appearances at Aaron Davis Hall, the Apollo Theater, and New Jersey Performing Arts Center, the ensemble has also performed at the Joyce Theater, the American Dance Festival, Cathedral of St. John the Divine, and the International Association of Blacks in Dance (IABD) among others.

Forces of Nature was part of the 12th Annual Festival for Peace in Moscow, the only African-American dance company to engage with members of the Bolshoi Ballet, and had the honor to dance and lead the historical procession for Nelson Mandela during his first appearance in the US in 1990. The company was featured in the three-part PBS series Free to Dance, as part of Great Performances, on the history of black dance in the 20th-century. Forces of Nature was also the featured dance company in the film and Smithsonian exhibition When the Spirit Moves, on the influence of African-American dance in Western culture. And most recently, the company was honored with the 41st annual Vivian Robinson AUDELCO Award for Best Dance Company of 2013

In addition to performing and touring, Forces of Nature has gained national and international recognition for its work with youth of all ages through workshops, master classes, and training seminars. The company has developed ongoing programs offered to schools, community service organizations, and cultural art institutions, believing that the arts, coupled with informative, stimulating academic presentations and creative participation, are among the best educational tools for redirecting youth on a positive, progressive, alternative path.

Dance — STEPS BEYOND FOUNDATION -5/20 Performance Lab Series Selects Eight Dance Makers to Present Works in Progress *NYC

STEPS BEYOND FOUNDATION ADDRESSES POLITICAL UNCERTAINTY THROUGH THE DEVELOPMENT OF NEW DANCE WORKS

 

Performance Lab Series Selects Eight Dance Makers to Present

Works in Progress

The Steps Beyond Foundation, Steps on Broadway’s non-profit arm that connects artists and community through dialogue, performance, and artistic collaboration, announces Choreography in Uncertain Times, the follow-up to last month’s panel discussion, Art in Uncertain Times. Taking place on May 20 at 8:00 p.m., the foundation has curated a program of aspiring choreographers reacting to the current political climate, the precarious position of the arts, and the impactthis has on the dance community both in New York and at large.

 

Selecting from a large pool of applicants, the Performance Lab offers choreographers and emerging dance makers an opportunity to present completed works, works in progress, or experimental concepts in a highly-curated studio theater setting.

 

“Because we are a tight knit community that thrives on building each other up, this particular lab is a wonderful opportunity to open up a conversation that impacts and changes all of us,” explains Diane Grumet, Artistic Director of the Steps Beyond Foundation. “This lab in particular, allows us to advocate for and nurture the ways in which our peers are responding to the current climate and the palpable threats made to our community. Perhaps with discussion will come a solution.”

 

A diverse panel of industry professionals selected choreographers Angel Kaba, Chris MakensKat NastiKatharine Pettit,Keli Gunn, Sidra Bell and Talia Putrino. Additionally, Davis Robertson will be premiering a piece on the dancers of the Steps Conservatory. The evening will include contemporary, hip hop, theater dance and jazz with each choreographer presenting up to an eight minute piece.

 

A brief Q&A completes the showcase, giving choreographers and audience members the opportunity to gain insight and join the discussion. A light reception follows.

 

PERFORMANCE and VENUE INFORMATION

The Arts in Uncertain Times Performance Lab will be held on May 20, 2017 at 8:00 p.m. in the Steps Studio Theater on the third floor.

 

Steps on Broadway is located at 2121 Broadway at 74th Street and is accessible by the 1,2, and 3 trains.

 

All tickets are $15, and on sale at https://stepsnyc.com/steps-beyond/performances/the-performance-lab/tickets/.

 

 

 

ABOUT THE STEPS BEYOND FOUNDATION

Launched in 2015 and directed by Diane Grumet, The Steps Beyond Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to developing and sustaining dance artistry and cultivating supporters of the dance community. The Foundation offers collaborative opportunities among established and emerging artists through community engagement, dance scholarships, performances and special events.

DANCE – Women Choreographers – NORTE MAAR CELEBRATES FIFTH ANNIVERSARY SEASON OF COUNTERPOINTE 4/7-9/17 *BKLYN

New York’s Longest Running Series Presenting Exclusively

New Dances by Women Choreographers Making New Work On Pointe

 

 Norte Maar, a committed international think-tank dedicated to the creation, promotion, and presentation of collaborations in the disciplines of the visual, literary, and the performing arts, together with Brooklyn Ballet, present CounterPointe, April 7-9, 2017 in downtown Brooklyn’s The Actors Fund Arts Center. This annual curated performance series features new work by women choreographers for pointe. For this, its fifth anniversary season, 7 women choreographers have been paired with 7 female visual artists to collaborate and create both a new physical and visual work by each–investigating the process of creation, inspiration and development.

 

CounterPointe5 will present collaborations by series curator Julia K. Gleich (Gleich Dances) with artist Elana Herzog, konverjdans with artist Nancy Baker, Brandi Marsh with artist Emily Noelle Lambert, Lynn Parkerson (Brooklyn Ballet) with artist Cornelia Thomsen, Ursula Verduzco with artist Lizzie Scott, Margaret Wiss with artist Noël Hennelly, and Eryn Renee Young (XAOC Contemporary Ballet) with artist Leslie Kerby.

 

Inaugurated in 2012 CounterPointe is focused on the presentation of new works by women choreographers for the pointe shoe. The series has been celebrated for breaking new ground expanding the ballet concert vocabulary, investigating new and historic territory, encouraging discussion and creating a forum for women, young or old, emerging or established, to take artistic risks.

 

“CounterPointe has become the mainstay series featuring new work by women choreographers who continue to push the limits and tradition of ballet,” explains Julia Gleich, Co-Founder of Norte Maar and the originator CounterPointe.  “The series continues to be one of the only in New York City to feature new work by established and emerging women choreographers. The collaborative element, pairing each choreographer with an artist, brings an added inspiring layer to the series offering a fresh new look at the ballet idiom and furthering the collaborative spirit while normalizing the role of women as creative leaders.”

 

This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department for Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.

Friday, April 7 at 7:30 p.m.

PERFORMANCE NOTES

 

Pas de Deux|Premiere

Presenting company: Brooklyn Ballet

Choreographer: Lynn Parkerson

Visual artist: Cornelia Thomsen

Music: Jean-Phillippe Rameau

Piano: Julius Abrahams

Length: 9.5 minutes

 

Pas de Deux is a mixed-movement duet performed by a ballerina and a gliding hip-hop dancer. The piece explores intimate connections between the two bodies and the two dance vocabularies as well as virtuosity and bravura as implied in the dance’s title “Pas de Deux”. Artist Cornelia Thomsen provides the scenic backdrop, projecting a mélange of stripe paintings underlining the sharp contrast between the dancers but also bind the dancers to each other through stark but vibrant formalism.

 

Bi-Polaris|Premiere

Presenting company: Benjamin Briones Ballet

Choreographer: Ursula Verduzco

Visual artist: Lizzie Scott

Music: Philip Glass

Costumes: UBCostumesandDancewear.com

Length: 7minutes

 

With fear as the driving force, Bi-Polaris d, responds to growing anxiety in uncertain times, and the effect is has on brain and behaviour. With tangible obstacles placed by Visual Artist Lizzie Scott, a new normalcy becomes like a new language- a constant visual struggle, and a palpable hope against falling prey to desperation.

 

Martha Edwards|Premiere

Presenting company: Gleich Dances

Choreographer: Julia K. Gleich

Visual artist: Elana Herzog

Music credit: Country Western selections

 

Old Western movies, remnants, and movement motifs from classic ballet death scenes merge in a collage combining feminine and masculine traits from classic characters, weaving the movement we expect to see in a ballet performance with ideas we hate to love.

#Dance #APAP Elisa Monte Dance1/7 #Free Open to the Public *NYC

ELISA MONTE DANCE TO SHOWCASE NEW WORK AND UNIQUE COLLABORATION AT 2017 APAP CONFERENCE

36th Pivotal Year Making New Partnerships and New Work to Pave the Way for a New Generation of Elisa Monte Dance


Elisa Monte Dance, an emotionally charged and highly acclaimed dance company that champions individuality, continues in it’s 36th Season under new directorship. Upon the retirement of 35-year founder and director, Elisa Monte, Tiffany Rea-Fisher has spent the first half of the season creating new work, defining a newer and edgier image, and working on a broad range of collaborations. The first of these collaborations with Chris Brubeck’s Band, Triple Play, will be showcased at APAP, the world’s premiere gathering of performing arts professionals, on January 7. During this showcase, Rea-Fisher will also present her newest evening length work, Things Past. 
 
Instrumental in defining American modern dance, Elisa Monte’s legacy is defined by the creation of a specific and stylized dance language. It is not a coincidence that Rea-Fishers first piece presented in the new year, encapsulates all that came before, but with a contemporary flair suited and relevant to today’s dancers and audiences. In the spirit of inevitable evolution, Things Past, first premiered for an intimate audience in May, exposes the human behind the performer. In accentuating a particular artist’s eccentricities and oddities, they become defined as building blocks to drawing our personal lineage and drawing roadmaps for what is to come. This work is also a direct reflection of new relationships forged between dancers and their new director, perhaps seeing them as different movers than they may have previously served as, and a chance to explore undiscovered or under-celebrated skills in a varied dance language.
 
“There is nothing more fitting than starting this new directorial season with Things Past, my first evening length work for the company,” explains Rea-Fisher. “The months following our 35thseason have been tremendous for us as a dance company. It has been a time of seeing each dancer through new eyes, learning key technique from the celebrated Monte repertory, and looking at ways to move and think differently. The new charge for the company is to cater to change, to new expectations and to the promise of progress.”
 
Lastly, musician Chris Brubeck, son of the acclaimed American jazz pianist and composer, Dave Brubeck, celebrates his father’s famous “cool jazz” standards with working along side Rea-Fisher and her dancers. A collaborative work set to live music, this work pays homage to the Brubeck legacy and its famous compositions, and enlightens it for the present—mirrored in Fisher’s movement approach. In setting movement with a contemporary modern flair, incorporating jazz, line dancing and pedestrian movement, Blue Rondo, Memphis Hesitation, and Take Five are the musical landscape of a work that merges past and present, a company theme of 2017.
 
ELISA MONTE DANCE APAP SCHEDULE
Things Past will be presented January 7 from 8:00-9:00 p.m. in Studio 4 at New York City Center.
The showcase with Triple Play, will be presented January 7 from 9:00-9:30 p.m. in Studio 5 at New York City Center.
 
TICKETS and VENUE INFORMATION

DANCE – STEPS BEYOND FOUNDATION

Steps on Broadway is the NYC epicenter for dancers tucked upstairs on the upper west side with nearly a dozen studios. It is a place where dancers come to train, to network, and to become educated on their place in the field, or the place dance holds in the lives of those artists that we like to celebrate, support, and watch from the audience.

This fall season launches a new season of Artist Talks, kicking off November 12 with “Ballet Training for the 21st Century Dancer”- a conversation with actress, dancer and teacher, Nina Goldman, master teacher Zvi Gothheiner,  Artistic Director of Juilliard’s Dance Division, and former ABT prima ballerina Ashley Tuttle. The conversations are always insightful, informative and empowering, providing useful tools and resources for particpants. The remainder of the season is included below. We always love to sit in a theater to watch dance. Rarely do we sit in a studio and talk about it.

STEPS BEYOND FOUNDATION PROVIDES OPPORTUNITIES FOR CHOREOGRAPHERS AND ASPIRING PROFESSIONALS WITH SEASON OF PERFORMANCE LABS AND ARTIST TALKS 

  The Steps Beyond Foundation, Steps on Broadway’s non-profit arm which connects artists and community through dialogue, performance, and artistic collaboration, announces upcoming 2016-17 Performance Lab and Artists Talk Series. In engaging emerging dance makers, aspiring professionals, and dance enthusiasts, the Foundation will host a winter and spring Performance Lab January 15 and May 21, four Artist Talk’s November 12, February 11, April 22 and June 24 and a benefit performance of Mimi Quillin’s one woman show, Call Fosse at the Minskoff on December 3rd. All events are held in the Steps Studio Theater on Manhattan’s Upper West Side.

In line with the Foundation’s mission to act as an educational vehicle for both aspiring and professional artists, the Artists Talk Series consists of conversations with internationally renowned industry professionals, book signings, DVD launch parties, and film screenings. The series fosters a creative and provocative learning environment, and the opportunity to network with dance, theater and music professionals. On November 12, the Foundation will welcome Artistic Director of the Juilliard Dance Division, Larry Rhodes, master teacher and founder of ZviDance, Zvi Gotheiner, dancer and teacher Nina Goldman, and prima ballerina and teacher, Ashley Tuttle, for the first talk of the 2016-2017 Season: Ballet Training for the 21st Century Dancer. Future artist talks are scheduled for February 11, April 22 and June 24, covering aspects of auditioning, teaching, performance, and elements of the creative process.

The Performance Lab offers choreographers and emerging dance makers an opportunity to present completed works, works in progress, or experimental concepts in a highly curated studio theater setting. Led by Steps Beyond’s Production Manager Bradley Shelver, each choreographer selected for the lab presents an eight-minute premiere and is granted technical tools and support to cultivate an evening presentation. The first lab of the season took place October 9 and featured performances by New Jersey Dance Theater Ensemble, Periapsis Music and Dance, FJK Dance, and more. The next lab will take place January 15, with a focus on musical theater, and May 21, for an evening of ballet premieres. Choreographer selections and works to be presented will be announced upon application deadlines.
