Music in two sections, socialization and contemporary dance vignette
from an esteemed choreographer. Music will start at 7:15pm sharp and we
will not allow anyone to come in while the musicians are playing.

-- Please bring a bottle of wine per person and dress the part. We will be asking for you to donate $10, which will go directly to the performers. Message me if you are able to come early and help prepare dinner for the performers something special to share."
The company performed ...and this is the story thus far at PS261 today. We did two shows back to back and had a great time with the students who asked a lot of good questions, and were very excited about the piece!
Ten years ago this week I created a contemporary ballet for the students at Princeton University Program in Theater and Dance. I chose the volatile music of John Zorn to create the ballet- there were no counts, as I used the impulses in the music to ride its idiosyncrasies, and to find the humorous passages as well as the softer variations. The piece is based on traditional ballet technique (and more) inspired by Balanchine, mixed with Twyla, and a bit of Byrd, and lots of "Reginisms". The fab lighting design is by Mark T. Simpson; costumes by Ingrid Mauer.
