Janis Brenner & Dancers
New York Season
featuring 2 New York Premieres
Thursday, June 1 - Saturday, June 3, 2017 at 8pm
Janis Brenner & Dancers presents its New York Season from Thursday, June 1 - Saturday, June 3, 2017 at 8pm at Gibney Dance: Agnes Varis Performing Arts Center, 280 Broadway (entrance at 53A Chambers Street), NYC.
The company premieres Once You Are Not A Stranger, created in collaboration with Bosnian-born, electro-acoustic composer Svjetlana Bukvich, Slovenian-born installation artist Eva Petric, lighting designer Mitchell Bogard, and costume designer Sue Julien. This interdisciplinary work looks at the ideas of empathy and "otherness" in a multicultural, multi-ethnic, and multi-religious world and uses the dance company as a microcosm of this world. Video projections are embedded in the center of an elaborate set-piece, playing a personal and imagistic role in the work. Performed with live music, including Ms. Brenner on vocals and Ms. Bukvich on keyboards. This work has been made possible by a commissioning grant from the O'Donnell-Green Music and Dance Foundation.
Tickets are $20 in advance, $25 at the door, and are available at 646-837-6809 or www.gibneydance.org/performance/pop/janis-brenner.

2017 New York Season
Fire in the Sky – WORLD PREMIERE Pascal Rioult’s homage to “Deep Purple” 70s rock erupts in pulsating new performance
Te Deum – A CLASSIC RE-IMAGINED Re-staging of 1995 classic dance for a new generation
Wednesday, May 31 at 7:30pm
Thursday, June 1 at 8pm
Friday, June 2 at 8pm
Saturday, June 3 at 2pm and 8pm
Sunday, June 4 at 2pm and 7:30pm
The Joyce Theater
Pascal Rioult’s renowned dance company, RIOULT Dance NY, the American modern dance company with a European sensibility, announces its 2017 season at The Joyce Theater, May 31 – June 4. This year, Rioult unveils two groundbreaking dances: the world premiere of Fire in the Sky and a re-staging of the classic Te Deum.
“The new work [Fire in the Sky], my first rock and roll piece, is set to the music of Deep Purple. This is the music that I danced to in the 70s in clubs, music that I really loved. The journey to becoming a professional dancer and choreographer and artistic director really started in those clubs.” – Pascal Rioult on Fire in the Sky. Watch full video here.
Fire in the Sky is a life’s work in dance. A nostalgic homage to the whimsy of youth, Fire in the Sky recalls a life lived in constant motion. Set to Deep Purple’s dynamic songs “Smoke on the Water” (1973), “Child in Time,” (1970), “Lazy,” (1972), and “Highway Star” (1972), the new performance captures the spirit of an artist fully realizing his craft.
Shortly after the premiere of Te Deum in 1996, Rioult told the Los Angeles Times, “It’s a piece I feel in a way I’ll be working on my whole life.” Now, one of his most acclaimed pieces is performed for the first time by a dancer other than Rioult himself. Set to Arvo Pa¨rt’s score of the same name, Te Deum is resurrected in a new re-staging, elegiacally evoking forms from the Crucifixion in a mysterious, spiritually charged performance. Richly saturated with the religious atmosphere of Rioult’s home city Caen, Te Deum was originally choreographed in 1995 when Rioult was transitioning from dancer to choreographer. Now, he revisits the piece through the lens of a more mature artist.

Announces the World Premiere of
Works & Process Rotunda Project: Daniil Simkin
Falls the Shadow withchoreography by Alejandro Cerrudo
September 4 & 5, 2017 at 8pm and 9:30pm
The Guggenheim Museum
Spearheaded by American Ballet Theatre principal Daniil Simkin, with new choreography by Alejandro Cerrudo, and projection design by
Dmitrij Simkin, Falls the Shadow is a new 30-minute work made in and for the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum rotunda. It will feature dancers Daniil Simkin, ABT soloist Cassandra Trenary and Hubbard Street dancers
Andrew Murdock and Ana Lopez.
In "real-time," their movements will be captured by motion sensors, generating 3-D mapped visuals that will be projected onto the surface of the rotunda to create an immersive experience that meshes technology, music, visuals, fashion, and dance.
In 2017, Works & Process, the performing arts series at the Guggenheim, launched a new initiative, commissioning site-specific residencies and performances for the iconic Guggenheim Museum rotunda. Falls the Shadow will be the second Works & Process Rotunda Project and will be the culmination of rotunda residencies spanning five-weeks.
This 30-minute performance will be viewed from the ramps and requires audience members to stand for the duration of the program. Limited seating with diminished views available on the rotunda floor.
WorldStage is the technology partner for Falls the Shadow.
