Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater will share excerpts of their upcoming New York City season during this Works in Process series. Afterwards, Artistic Director Robert Battle will lead a discussion with Stefanie Batten Bland, Donald Byrd and Jamar Roberts about creating work inspired by social issues.
Inspired by the 1967 Stanley Kramer film starring Sydney Poitier, Katherine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy, the work pays tribute to those who paved the way toward acceptance in love and life. Set around a transformative dinner setting, seven dance-theatre artists excavate interlaced universal traumas through imagery and ritual as they seek a seat at the table.
“Patient(ce)” will be in creative residency at Duke University with the Duke Dance and Music Departments celebrating the ghosts of our pasts by examining the musical structure of jazz with its formal emphasis on the eternal present.
SBB returns to Hong Kong in a creative residency with the Academy for the Performing Arts Hong Kong. The residency also includes SBB in solo performance of the company’s hit wearable art piece Germe.
Dance -Theatre: Physical Perspectives
This masterclass will explore and increase creativity for performers looking to frame and support alternative movement methods. Theatre training generates creative ways of being for dancers. Movement exercises liberate actors allowing a dynamic decision making both physically and vocally. This class enables action and reaction to learnt and improvised material. Participants will leave with concrete scenic tools and theories to address social and communal issues within work and explore their skills and limits.
Join Company SBB in their debut performance of new creation “Look Who’s Coming to Dinner” in La Mama’s Crossing The Line Festival.
“Look Who’s Coming to Dinner” celebrates love, access and the right to a seat at the table.
