Brooklyn Ballet announces 2014 Performance Season: Vectors, Marys, and Snow
April 3, 4, 5, 11 & 12 at 8pm
April 6 & 13 at 4pm
at The Actors Fund Arts Center
Brooklyn Ballet has much in store for its 2014 performance season at home in The Actors Fund Arts Center, April 3-6 & 11-13. A special opening night reception before the show, free beer Fridays where your first drink's on us, and children's matinees each Sunday to introduce our youngest audience members to this year's explorations in ballet and choreography.
Founding Artistic Director & Choreographer Lynn Parkerson, along with Resident Choreographer Julia K. Gleich, present new works, improvisational scores, and the latest excerpt from the in-progress Brooklyn Nutcracker - motion-sensored tutus, here we come!
Exciting collaborations with the returning NYC Resistor hacker collective and YMX by Yellowman will provide new technological elements to the Nutcracker snow scene you know and love, and we have a full crew of talented musicians on hand to perform live music each performance.
Dancers will team up with a different musician each show to perform Quilt/One Night Stand to new music. Musicians include Julius Abrahams, Shelley Hirsch, Andrei Matorin, Baba Israel, Andrew Drury, Russ Lossing, Jen Baker, and Ranjit Bhatnagar.
The program also includes 3 Marys by Lynn Parkerson set to music by Nicola Matteis (b.1650) performed live by Julius Abrahams, Jude Ziliak and Wen Yang. Resident Choreographer Julia K. Gleich presents The Solitude, to music by Malcolm Parson played on viola by Josh Henderson.
Stay tuned for introductions to our newest members the company, videos and photos from rehearsals, and more announcements about our upcoming events!
