The story of two bankers, their lovers, and the things they love the most: money, power, and satisfaction. As their fast-paced games unfold, a thrilling spiral of ambition, love and betrayal unravels.
Aidos, a new work by Douglas Dunn, features dancing by Dunn himself, Jules Bakshi, Alexandra Berger, Emily Pope-Blackman, Jin Ju Song-Begin, Jessica Martineau, Paul Singh, Jake Szczypek, and Timothy Ward to Bach Cello Suites performed live by Ha-Yang Kim, with design by Andrew Jordan and lighting design by Carol Mullins.
Though highly stylized and elegant, as is typical of Dunn's work, the piece allows Aidos, the Greek goddess of shame, to appear as a split personality danced by two six-foot tall women, Jin Ju Song-Begin and Jessica Martineau. Their ongoing duel, juxtaposed against six more affiliated dancers, is the focal point of the general suggestion of dance display as inherently embarrassing. The beauty of the Bach Suites played live by Ha-Yang Kim and the sleek black and gold costumes by Andrew Jordan keep the mordant theme from shredding the luxuriant texture of the hour-long dance.
The gold, the silk, the magical clink of finger cymbals. Carol Tandava Henning brings to the stage a personal journey that does not stop moving in physical or cerebral space. In this theater work, the mind and the body are truly one. In the Western world, bellydancing calls up sexualized images of bachelor parties or extras in a Cecil B. DeMille biblical film. Yet Tandava's piece comes out of agony — art is always born from suffering in one way or another. With wit and humor she traces her personal journey into bellydancing as well as the dance's authentic cultural roots and positive effects on both body and soul.
Every performance features three or more exquisite guest bellydancers of varying ages, backgrounds, shapes, sizes — male and female — who perform a variety of styles including Egyptian, Turkish, Folkloric, Iraqi, American Tribal, American Cabaret, Fusion, and more!

Taking one back to the heart of flamenco puro, this mesmerizing program features four extraordinary dancers representing several generations and styles from four different towns in Andalusia (Granada, Lebrija, Moron de la Frontera, and Jerez de la Frontera): the veteran Manolete, a true maestro of the baile who has trained a generation of dancers including Joaquin Cortes, Canales, Eva la Yerbabuena, and Sara Baras; Concha Vargas, an icon of Gypsy flamenco dance, who is a living legend representing the Golden Age of Flamenco; Pepe Torres, a polyrhythmic powerhouse whose superb footwork provided the main percussive support for the award-winning ensemble Son de la Frontera; and rising star Gema Moneo, a member of the renowned Moneo clan of Gypsy flamenco singers and guitarists in Jerez de la Frontera, who has performed with Farruquito's company and Diego del Morao.
Kids and adults alike will love the antics of their favorite nursery rhyme characters – Jack and Jill, Little Bo Peep, Little Boy Blue, Little Miss Muffet, and a host of others kicking up their heels in Keith Michael's clever, fun-filled ballet set to Vladimir Shinov's original score.

The program will include two world premieres by Nicolo Fonte and Pam Tanowitz. Nicolo Fonte is choreographing There, And Back Again, a 20-minute piece for four dancers inspired by the Brothers Grimm classic story "Hansel & Gretel" in a wholly contemporary esthetic, performed to a new score composed by Kevin Keller for piano and violin. Pam Tanowitz will create One Plus One, a new 13-minute ballet for ten dancers set to the Andante movement of Beethoven's Sonata in D Major #15, which will be played live on piano two times at different tempos. The dance is based on the "pas de deux" and will be used as a metaphor for the age-old notion of unrequited love. The company will also revive Merce Cunningham's trio Cross Currents, staged by Jennifer Goggans, performed to an arrangement by John Cage of Conlon Nancarrow's Rhythm Studies for Player Piano Nos. 1-6. The evening is completed by a revival of Keith Michael's The Alice-In-Wonderland.
