Dance – DANCER AND EDUCATOR THERESA RUTH HOWARD LAUNCHES MOBBALLET: A DIGITAL ARCHIVE PRESERVING THE LEGACY OF BLACK BALLET

theresa-ruth-howard-1

 

MoBBallet’s Roll Call is a list of professional black ballet dancers that today features 301 names and is growing as black ballet artists submit their names. The site also houses an E–Zine that features insights on issues affecting both the ballet world and society such as diversity and inclusion –and a timeline that spans the history of black ballet from 1919 to present day.

 

DANCER AND EDUCATOR THERESA RUTH HOWARD LAUNCHES MOBBALLET: A DIGITAL ARCHIVE PRESERVING THE LEGACY OF BLACK BALLET

Initiative Creates a Shift in Perspective on the Current Conversation around Diversity in Ballet through Stories of Current and Past Black Professional Ballet Dancers

Dancer Theresa Ruth Howard announces the launch of Memoirs of Blacks in Ballet (MoBBallet), a groundbreaking legacy project documenting and transforming conversations around black ballet artists. The initiative will focus on bringing visibility to the lesser-known history of black ballet dancers around the world through video profiles, essays and archival data which capture the artistry and humanity of black ballet dancers. At launch, MoBBallet’s website houses a community sourced Roll Call which lists the names of black ballet dancers past and present, a digital timeline that places historical moments in black ballet history next to key events in world history, and an E-Zine that sheds light on issues affecting the ballet community and society at large.

 

The recipient of a $50,000 grant from the Knight Foundation, MoBBallet’s first anchor project, the Philadelphia Project, will document the stories of four Philadelphia trained black ballerinas— including Joan Myers Brown, founder of The Philadelphia Dance Company (PHILADANCO!), Delores Browne from the New York Negro Ballet Company and Judith Jamison, Artistic Director Emerita of the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater.

Coinciding with the launch of MoBBallet, founder Theresa Ruth Howard will serve as keynote speaker at Dutch National Ballet’s Positioning Ballet conference on February 11th, where she will officially introduce MoBBallet’s mission to promote larger discussions within the international dance community around the stories of black ballet dancers. A select group of leading artistic directors from America, Europe, Asia and Russia have been invited to attend the conference.

“Diversity in Ballet in America is a very specific challenge given our racial history” remarks Howard. “The histories and demographics of each of the companies that will be represented during Positioning Ballet are just as specific. This is an unprecedented opportunity to see and hear what their issues are regarding diversity in the field.”

To date, MoBBallet has captured over 301 names to the Roll Call and calls for professional black ballet dancers not already on the list to add their names. MoBBallet’s archival information covers important moments in the history of black ballet from 1919 to present day.

ART/Talk/Performance Art — Feminism — Archive Bound: Performance by the Guerrilla Girls – Not Ready to Make Nice: Thirty Years and Still Counting 11/21/15 *The New School

Archive Bound: Performance by the Guerrilla Girls – Not Ready to Make Nice: Thirty Years and Still Counting

Saturday, November 21, 2015 at 3:00 pm to 4:30 pm

Wollman Hall, Eugene Lang College 65 West 11th Street Room B500, New York, NY 10003

Archive Bound examines methodologies within the presentation, documentation, historiography, and exhibition display of non-object based and site-specific artworks. Additionally, the exhibition at the Center for Book Arts includes books, photographs, and ephemera associated with Conceptual, Performance, and Site-Specific Art practices. Several first generation avant-garde figures lay the groundwork for a discourse on the contemporary utilization of these crucial genres. A performance series is being held in conjunction with the exhibition at The New School.

On November 21, Frida Kahlo from the Guerrilla Girls presents a performance entitled Guerrilla Girls – Not Ready to Make Nice: Thirty Years and Still Counting. The series continues with a performance by Jacqueline Goss and Jenny Perlin on December 3.

Guerrilla Girls are an anonymous group of feminist, female artists devoted to fighting sexism and racism within the art world. The group formed in New York City in 1985 with the mission of bringing gender and inequality within the fine arts into focus within the greater community. Guerrilla Girls names are pseudonyms generally based on dead female artists. Members goes by names such as Kathe KollwitzAlma ThomasRosalba CarrieraFrida KahloJulia de Burgos, and Hannah Höch. Guerrilla Girls’ “Carriera” is credited with the idea of using pseudonyms as ways to not forget female artists.

Sponsored by the Center for Book Arts and The New School, the performance series is held in conjunction with the Archive Bound exhibition at The Center for Book Arts on view from October 2 – December 12, 2015.

The Center for Book Arts is dedicated to exploring and cultivating contemporary aesthetic interpretations of the book as an art object, while preserving the traditional practices of the art of the book.

Support for the Center for Book Arts’ Visual Arts Program is provided, in part, by the New York State Council on the Arts, with the support of Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, and by the National Endowment for the Arts.

CHARITABLE DONATION __ DANCE — The AFROFUTURISM Series, choreographer Andre Zachery and his company Renegade Performance Group 11/4-7/15

https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/the-afrofuturism-series#/story

The incredibly gifted dancer/choreographer Sarah Chien alerted us to this worthy cause:

I’m writing to you to ask you to consider contributing to The AFROFUTURISM Series, a work that I’ve been collaborating closely on since 2013 with choreographer Andre Zachery and his company Renegade Performance Group. Afrofuturism is a movement about collectively addressing issues on race, identity, gender through performance. Andre’s blend of movement, multimedia, and music is unlike anything else going on in NYC and we’re fundraising for a true home season in Brooklyn: four full evenings of our work Nov 4-7. Its work like this that makes me proud to be investing my time, energy and passion into New York City- I’d be honored if you join the movement with me!

 

This time, we are using a flexible funding platform (we keep everything we earn regardless of goal) and we are producing the fundraiser ourselves, rather than as part of a larger festival.

 

As with all crowdfunding, please share this appeal through your networks- I know that your time spent sharing is also a contribution. And feel free to contribute at any level- there are some really artsy merch perks at higher levels, but any amount is appreciated, truly.

Screen Shot 2015-09-27 at 5.40.54 PM

Thank you so much for your continued support and I hope to see you at the show!

 

Best,

Sarah

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Renegade Performance Group (RPG) is presenting The AFROFUTURISM Series with two unique full-length programs: “Untitled Distances” and “The Inscription Project,” introducing dance and technology as a vehicle of AFROFUTURISM.  This will be the first RPG season in our home borough- Brooklyn. The company season runs for four nights, November 4-7, 2015, at the Irondale Center in Fort Greene. AFROFUTURISM as a movement, expresses new narratives, ideologies, and symbolisms of Black culture from a global perspective.

RPG launched the AFROFUTURISM Series in January 2014 to be an ongoing project investigating the presence of Blackness into and beyond 21st Century techno-culture and society. It is a platform where themes and contexts of Black diasporic culture will be remixed and reimagined through contemporary dance, digital projections, and interactive sound environments.

WHAT WE NEED & WHAT YOU GET

This season is entirely self-produced! That’s why we need your support to make the magic happen.

Our GOAL is $15,000.

The funds from this campaign support every step of this project’s process:

  • securing rehearsal and creative space,
  • printing publicity,
  • obtaining production equipment,
  • cover the cost of theater,
  • pay the collaborators and performers, and
  • video documentation of the performances

WE WANT TO LOVE YOU BACK

Contributors at certain levels receive unique incentives such as RPG phonecases, posters, vintage Haitian masks, the personal portfolio of André M. Zachery, and inside access to RPG.
