Inspired by the Academy Award-winning film, An American in Paris is the romantic story about an American soldier, a mysterious French girl, and an indomitable European city, each yearning for a new beginning in the aftermath of war.
A new tango-infused dance theater piece, Arrabal follows one woman's quest to understand the violence that took her father and disrupted a nation. Told through dance and the propulsive music of the band Bajofondo, the show features an ensemble and band direct from Buenos Aires, Argentina. Directed and co-choreographed by Sergio Trujillo (choreography, Invisible Thread, Memphis, Jersey Boys, On Your Feet!, Next To Normal) with music by Academy Award winner Gustavo Santaolalla (Brokeback Mountain, Babel, The Motorcycle Diaries) and book by Tony Award nominee John Weidman (Contact, Assassins) Arrabal invites audiences into the underground world of Buenos Aires' tango clubs for a dance between the present and the past.
Since its founding in 2005 by award-winning visionaries Christine Cox and Matthew Neenan, Philadelphia's stellar BalletX has expanded the vocabulary of classical dance to forge innovative new works of athleticism, emotion, and grace. The company's world-class dancers collaborate with distinguished choreographers to create bold new dances. The Boston program includes Joshua L. Peugh's Slump with music by Klezmer Juice, Yma Sumac, and Ella Fitzgerald; Amy Seiwert's It's Not a Cry with music by Jeff Buckley (cover of "Hallelujah" by Leonard Cohen); Jodie Gates's Delicate Balance with music by Arvo Pärt, Henryk Gorecki, Gavin Bryars and David Lang, and Max Richter; and Matthew Neenan's The Last Glass with music by Beirut.
Founded in Buenos Aires in 1997 by the distinguished dancer and choreographer Carolina Soler, Estampas Porteñas Tango Company presents the Boston premiere of its thrilling new production, Deseos . . . Stories of Longing and Desire Told Through Argentine Tango and Music. Performed by a dozen exquisitely skilled dancers and accompanied by ardent, soul-filled live music, Deseos celebrates the greatest artistic elements of Argentina, including the indomitable tango, the athletic malambo of the gauchos, and the country's wide range of musical styles.
Known for reinvigorating the street-dance community in Philadelphia, Raphael Xavier is an alumnus of the groundbreaking hip-hop dance company Rennie Harris Puremovement and a recent recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship. After break-dancing for 32 years, he presents a new work, Point of Interest, that challenges the highly physical art form and the viewer's perception of hip-hop as being solely associated with youth.
