A biennial visitor to Brooklyn Center for more than two decades, NDTC celebrates its 55th anniversary with a program combining evocative new works with favorites from their extensive repertoire.

Co-founded by Rex Nettleford and Eddy Thomas in 1962, at the time of Jamaica's Independence, NDTC ventures to provide an atmosphere in which dancers could create and perform works of high standards, to encourage the Jamaican public to better appreciate the art of dance, and to research and utilize indigenous dance-forms and movement pattern from Jamaica and the wider Caribbean.

The repertoire for the company's 2017 Brooklyn residency includes:

Folktales (2003), choreography by Clive Thompson
Labess (2002), choreography by David Brown
You/We (2016), traditional Jamaican folk songs arranged by Ewan Simpson, featuring NDTC singers and orchestra

Doug Varone and Dancers
Choreography by Doug Varone
Music composed by Michael Gordon, Julia Wolfe, and Philip Glass
Lighting design by David Ferri, Robert Wierzel, and David Grill
Costume design by Liz Prince, Reid Bartelme, Harriet Jung, and Lynne Steincamp
March 29-April 1 at 7:30pm
BAM Harvey Theater

Doug Varone and Dancers return to BAM to celebrate 30 years of visionary work with three dances representing the past, present, and future of the company. The program comprises a revival of the Philip Glass-scored Possession (1994) and the New York premieres of ReComposed (2015) and Varone's latest work, Folded (2016).


Possession, inspired by A.S. Byatt's century-spanning novel of the same name, is set to Glass' beautiful Concerto for Violin and Orchestra. Eight dancers, in duets, explore the facets of relationships, as the emotional and physical balance of the work shifts between each pair. ReComposed is a whirlwind of color and careening movement, inspired by the pastel paintings of abstract expressionist Joan Mitchell and set to Michael Gordon's propulsive Dystopia. Folded, an intimate duet set to a score by MacArthur Fellow Julia Wolfe, explores the questions and contradictions inherent in our personal beliefs and faiths.

Visit BAM.org for information. Tickets start at $25 For ticket information, call BAM Ticket Services at 718.636.4100, or visit BAM.org.

Announces
American Ballet Theatre: Whipped Cream by Alexei Ratmansky
Sunday & Monday, April 30 & May 1, 2017 at 7:30pm
The Guggenheim

On Sunday and Monday, April 30 and May 1, 2017 at 7:30pm, Works & Process at the Guggenheim presents performance highlights and discussion on American Ballet Theatre's newest production, Whipped Cream by Artist in Residence Alexei Ratmansky in collaboration with pop surrealist Mark Ryden. Ratmansky and moderator John Meehan will discuss the new work and ABT dancers will perform excerpts prior to the New York premiere.

Whipped Cream will have its New York premiere with American Ballet Theatre at the Metropolitan Opera House on May 22, 2017.

Delightfully whimsical, this new full-length production springs from the imagination of American Ballet Theatre Artist in Residence Alexei Ratmansky and pop surrealist Mark Ryden. Based on the 1924 Viennese ballet Schlagobers (Whipped Cream) with music by Richard Strauss, Whipped Cream follows a young boy who overindulges at a Viennese pastry shop and falls into a delirium.

Tickets & Venue

$40, $35 Guggenheim members and Friends of Works & Process. $10 Student Rush Tickets available one hour prior to each performance if space allows (for students under 25 with valid ID). Box Office (212) 423-3575, (M-F, 1-5pm) or online at worksandprocess.org
