Cherylyn Lavagnino Dance will return to NYC February 25 and 26, 2020 with the premiere of Tales of Hopper (2019), a new theater-dance work inspired by American realist painter Edward Hopper. Tales of Hopper, in a collaboration between choreographer Cherylyn Lavagnino and composer Martin Bresnick, uses dancers cast as figures plucked from selected Edward Hopper paintings. Human connections are illuminated though gestural movement steeped in subtext, with Bresnick’s original composition for piano, violin, and cello bringing emotional undercurrents to the surface. Transparent set pieces reference Hopper’s environments, contextualizing each of the eight vignettes as they unfold. Tales of Hopper marks a departure for Cherylyn Lavagnino Dance, asking each of the dancers to step into the new roles of actor and collaborator in the company’s most character-driven work to date. “Edward Hopper’s paintings portray a sense of despair and emptiness—a crisis of an alienated world reflecting the loneliness of the human situation in a new, modern age. As artists, we have the only real job security: the expression of the human experience cannot be replaced by computers or machines. CLD has a responsibility to provide insight into and reflection on these disturbing concepts through collaborative, connected performance.” – Cherylyn Lavagnino, Artistic Director Lavagnino’s newest work is a collaboration with world-renowned artists including composer Martin Bresnick, pianist Lisa Moore, violinist Elly Toyoda, cellist Ashley Bathgate, set designer Jesse Seegers, and costumer Christopher Metzger. CLD performing artists include Sharon Milanese, Kristen Foote, Claire Westby, Justin Faircloth, Corinne Hart, Lila Simmons, Oscar Rodriguez, Emma Pajewski, Philip Strom, Dervla Carey-Jones, Gwen Gussman, and Malcom Miles Young. A full evening performance will also include two repertory works: • Triptych (Excerpt, 2012) links two distinct scores: Francois Couperin’s “Troisième Leçons Tenèbres à Deux Voix,” from the deeply religious Baroque period, and an original score by longtime CLD collaborator Scott Killian. A reverent, intertwining entrance for the female chorus, seeped in the religious ecstasy evoked by Couperin’s composition, prefaces each section of the work. Through abstraction, Lavagnino’s choreography references several Christian icons; the distinct qualities of each dancer embody the individual nature of spiritual expression. This excerpt features the first of two movements. • Veiled (2016), a work for a female cast of six, explores the enactment of physical and internal grace in the face of oppression. Lavagnino choreographed movements that are pared-down and stripped of virtuosity, invoking the harsh angles of rituals and formal prayer. Together the dancers forge a rite born of shared experiences that unifies the individual spirits of the group. To Martin Bresnick’s austere score, Veiled reflects women who carry themselves with strength and dignity through an unjust world.

Boston Ballet’s 2019-2020 season continues with Carmen, a showcase of works by Jorma Elo, George Balanchine, and Helen Pickett that explore the many facets of femininity. Jorma Elo’s Carmen updates the fiery Spanish antiheroine of stage and screen for the 21st century and navigates the timeless dynamics of passion, jealousy, and betrayal. George Balanchine’s Serenade, famously born of the challenge to create a piece for fledgling ballerinas upon his arrival in the United States, paints intricate scenes set against an unforgettable blue palette and gorgeous Tchaikovsky score. Helen Pickett’s Tsukiyo, a seductive and intimate duet based on the Japanese fable “The Woodcutter’s Daughter,” returns to the stage where it premiered. It is paired with her high-octane work Petal, which comes to Boston for the first time. Tickets start at $37.

The Department of Dance at Case Western Reserve University will continue the 2019-2020 season with Kaleido, a thesis concert featuring works by Master of Fine Arts candidates Brandon Gregoire and Yuting Zhao and Master of Arts candidate Joseph Teeter. Performance dates and times are March 26 - 28 at 8:00 p.m. and March 29 at 2:30 p.m. All performances are at Mather Dance Center, 11201 Bellflower Road, on the Case Western Reserve campus in University Circle. Down and Through, restaged for five male dancers, is a work by Gregoire that explores one’s experience with pain, grief, and emotional boundaries. The dancers personify this experience through their bodily contact, struggling against the barriers until there is nowhere to go but up. Zhao’s solo, She’d, uses a score by Arvo Part and special costuming to reveal the female figure’s inner world, and her journey of self-discovery and liberation. Her group work is set to all-male choral music by Eero Hämeenniemi. An all female cast embodies the influences of the weight of memory. The weight drags and disturbs, but it also triggers rebirth from deconstruction. Another premiere, Duality, is a duet for two women choreographed by Gregoire. Driven by music from composer John Psathas, this work explores contrasting movement dynamics with variations in time and space. He will also restage Strange Gardens, a responsive-media infused work by Gary Galbraith. Created in 2016, a visually rich wonderland is created, manipulated, and transformed with a trio of dancers and their kinetic journey through space. Zhao will also restage January Thirtyfirst, a 2003 duet choreographed by CWRU alumna Lin Batsheva Kahn. With music by Phillip Glass and a narrated poem by Kahn, this powerful work depicts the grief and mutual support of a brother and sister at the moment of their mother’s death. The dancers show a painful journey through grief filled with anticipation, anger, and anxiety before transitioning into sad acceptance. Teeter will premiere a new work titled Chasing Unison. With a string quartet performing two fugues by J.S. Bach onstage, the four dancers each represent one of the quartet voices. As the work develops the dancers explore their connection to the music and to each other, wondering how to be united in such a complex, contrapuntal world. Tickets are $10 for students, $12 for seniors 60+ and CWRU personnel, and $15 for general admission. Reservations are recommended and may be made by calling (216) 368-5246 or online at dance.case.edu/reservations.
