FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
A new season of artistic collaborations, world premiers and new choreographers to be introduced to the DFW community.
Following the new year, DNCB in collaboration with Nocturne Blue will present 'I Came for the Light and Stayed for the Shadows'- an interdisciplinary performance incorporating live electronic music, projections, and dance. The work will explore changing perceptions as they relate to time and perspective through the use of repeating forms and phrases. Nocturne Blue features German composer Markus Reuter (Crimson Project) utilizing live looping techniques with an 8 string guitar of his own design and visuals by Emmy-winning producer Dutch Rall. The performance will be filmed for the upcoming web series 'Bishop Arts Live'.
Furthering their mission to collaborate with Dallas/Fort Worth-based dancers, artists, and musicians, Dallas Neo-Classical Ballet will present an extraordinary program at Dallas City Performance Hall, April 9. The first act of the program will include the 1917 Ballets Russes ballet, Parade. Dallas artist, Francisco Moreno (b. 1986, Mexico City) will work to re-envision and recreate the visual aspects, originally created by Picasso. Act I will also include a new commissioned work by SMU professor and director, Lane Harder. He will also be leading his ensemble, SYZYGY, in a live performance to accompany the ballets. This is the second performance of DNCB’s that SYZYGY will participate in – the first being last season’s Masque of the Red Death.
Act II will be comprised of a new work set to Ionisation by Edgar Verèse with choreography by DNCB Company Member, Kayla Davey. The program will conclude with new choreography set to the 1924, Dadaist post-Cubist art film, by Fernand Léger. Both pieces will be accompanied by SMU’s percussion ensemble directed by Jon Lee.
DNCB will also appear as guest artists throughout the season with local dance studios and companies, including Plano Metropolitan Ballet’s festival in April. They will also participate in Over the Bridge Arts’ first annual Longest Day of the Year Festival in Oak Cliff on June 21, 2017. OBA is a non-profit arts organization founded by Lori Sundeen Soderbergh, Marissa Marez and DNCB’s Emilie Skinner.
