Liable to Change utilizes movement, architecture, sound, light and interactive technologies and filters it all through the Cynefin Framework to inform the piece by delving into states of simplicity, complicatedness, complexity, chaos, and disorder. Investigating systems of order and logic exemplified in the writings of DaVinci, Kepler, and Plato and the concept of "the golden mean" as well as the Fibonacci sequence are presented within the movement, architecture, and visual elements of the work illustrating the dichotomy of chaos and logic.

Dusan Tynek Dance Theatre
World Premiere of Tynek's Latest Evening Length Work
Le Jardin Qui Rit (The Laughing Garden)
Three Performances Only! March 7 - 9 at 7:30pm
Baruch Performing Arts Center (BPAC)

A surrealistic homage to Hieronymus Bosch's 
"The Garden of Earthly Delights"

Dusan Tynek Dance Theatre will present the World Premiere of choreographer Dusan Tynek's Le Jardin Qui Rit (The Laughing
Garden) at Baruch Performing Arts Center (BPAC), 25th Street between 3rd & Lexington Avenues, New York, NY 10010 for three performances only, Thursday, March 7 - Saturday, March 9 at 7:30pm.

Le Jardin Qui Rit is a surrealistic and allegorical homage to creation, the beginning of all things, and is inspired by the middle panel of the iconic triptych "The Garden of Earthly Delights" by Hieronymus Bosch. The Czech-born Týnek says, "I am not seeking to recreate the mad world of freely cavorting humans and beasts in the painting, but rather create a theatrical world of its own making, rules and dramas. This is a place of my imagination anchored in the real experiences of an avid gardener and observer of life."

Tickets: $15 - $30 (+$1 handling fee)

Jiva Dance
Presents the World Premiere of
March 7 & 8 at 8pm, and March 10 at 4pm 
Dixon Place

Jiva Dance presents the World Premiere of The Four Horsemen on March 7 & 8, 2019 at 8pm and March 10, 2019 at 4pm at Dixon Place, 161A Chrystie St, New York, NY 10002. There will be a post-show talk-back on March 8 with the choreographers Maya Kulkarni and Sonali Skandan, moderated by NYC Indian classical dance veteran and curator Rajika Puri. 

The Four Horsemen is an innovative Indian Classical dance production, exploring symbolism from the story of the Apocalypse through Indian classical dance, music, and Sanskrit poetry. The work centers around four vignettes of life and death through four female protagonists who stand for universal human experience. The stories - a woman shackled to the life of a courtesan (conquest), a woman reminiscing the night she spent with her lover who is at war (war), a mother searching for nourishment for her child in the midst a sandstorm (famine), and finally a woman at the end of her life recalling memories that span youthful joy to hardship and loss (death) - are touchingly timely. The new work challenges the notion of Indian classical dance content and technique and moves beyond the traditional to incorporate a cross-cultural analysis of female experience.

Tickets are General - $28 (Early Bird Until Feb 14) / $30 Advance / $35 Door Students and Seniors  ($25 Early Bird Until Feb 14) / $28 Advance / $30 Door and can be purchased at

Danspace Project

New York Theatre Ballet announces the spring REP program and company news from Founder & Artistic Director Diana Byer on the cusp of celebrating NYTB's 40th Anniversary.

The company returns to Danspace Project for their fifth season with:
Richard Alston's The Seasons, one of the Best Dance Picks of 2018 by The New York Times. A serene and limpid meditation on the cycle of a year in Nature, the music has an extraordinary clarity with images of Quiescence (Winter), Creation (Spring), Preservation (Summer) and, intriguingly, Destruction (Fall), which all come from Indian philosophical thought; Matthew Nash's 1983 take on The Elements of Style, from Strunk and White's classic guide to writing;Merce Cunningham's Scramble (1967) the first piece whose designer, Frank Stella, was selected by Jasper Johns after his appointment as artistic advisor of the Cunningham Co. It consists of eighteen sections whose order could be changed, or omitted. The music by Toshi Ichiyanagi (Activities for Orchestra) is scored for western instruments. NYTB's Scramble is part of the Merce Cunningham Centennial Celebration.

NYTB REP performances are made possible, in part, through the Danspace Project's Community ACCESS Series that provides subsidized off-season rental opportunities for Danspace Project community members

Tickets are $25 and are available at
