FOR-IMMEDIATE-RELEASE-1

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Hilarious TONY Award-wining comedy ART on display at the MuCCC!

(June 20, 2016-Rochester, NY) The Rochester-based THEATRE/THEATER Company is delighted to present Yasmina Reza’s dramedy ART.

Reza’s play explores the funny, emotional and existential consequences that challenge three longtime friends, in Paris, when one of them purchases an expensive work of modern art. Serge, (played by native Rochesterian and Broadway actor Mark A. Davis) is a successful dermatologist whose newfound passions for obtaining modern art flies unnervingly in the face of his best friend and self-proclaimed mentor Marc (Chris Felo).  A third friend, the neurotic, groom-to-be, Yvan (Jim Orr) attempts to smooth things over between them. The vacillating allegiances between the three friends provides an evening of genuine hilarity as one friend, then the other, begin to wage an, at first subtle, then all out explosive and vindictive campaign to stand righteous above the others even at the cost of the demolition of their enduring friendship.

Directed with great humor and sensitivity by Jerry Argetsinger who acknowledges, “The play is at once wildly funny and deeply provocative. It is sort of a cross between
Molière, Woody Allen and Louis C.K. and is a terrific evening of theatre where you’ll find yourself laughing out loud one minute and torn by the rawness of emotion the next.”

“We’re very pleased to be having our opening night be a special part of the Rochester PRIDE Week of festivities on July 13th,” adds Davis. “The admission to that show will be a ‘Pay-What-You-Can’ performance with proceeds going to support Rochester Pride and all participating LGBTQ organizations.”

As expressed by the Independent (London): “Anyone looking for a play that is funny, sophisticated, stylish, stimulating and moving should go to ART.”

We agree!

Yasmina Reza’s ART is being presented at the MuCCC, 142 Atlantic Avenue, Rochester,

Wednesday-Friday, July 13 (premiere) to 15 at 8 pm, and Saturday, July 16 at 2 & 8 pm.

Advance sale general admission tickets are $9 students/seniors, $12 others.  Tickets at the door are $12 students/seniors, and $15 for all others.  Tickets now on sale online at the MuCCC www.muccc.org Saturday 8 pm show will be ASL interpreted.

appropriate for ages high school and up

Rounding Third, a tale of Little League dads, introduces us to two coaches — one a veteran, the other a new recruit — and their markedly different personal circumstances and philosophies about the game of baseball and how kids should play it. The clash of styles and wills between these two coaches drives this funny, acerbic, and touching play through the bumpy terrain of fatherhood and baseball.

Rounding Third is the tumultuous journey of two Little League coaches through an entire season, from their first tentative meeting to the climactic championship game. The audience is the stand-in for the team, so the coaches speak directly to the audience about competition, character, punctuality, and the importance of wearing the right equipment.

Artists Bios

Norma Araiza (Canada) is a Yoeme/Mexican performer, choreographer, and instructor living in Toronto. Norma works in different modalities within the arts blending dance, theatre, vocals, percussion, and text with cultural and traditional themes in a contemporary context. MEEC means moon in Yaqui language. Inspired by an Aztec legend, the focus on this solo is on the moon and her female characteristics. It shows, with a combination of dance styles, the universal perspective around the mythological and mysterious moon in relation to the cycles of women. Me Lleva la Flaca (Taken by the Skinny) is a dance-theatre piece inspired by the traditions of The Day of The Dead in Mexico. This piece concentrates on The Catrina’s essence. The audience gets to know a little bit of who she is through her gestures and movements, but she never reveals herself completely. She has to fulfill her duty at any cost (taking people to the underworld).

 

Missy Pfohl Smith is the Artistic Director of BIODANCE and the Director of the Program of Dance and Movement at University of Rochester. She received her MFA from Sarah Lawrence College, her BS from The College at Brockport, and is certified in the Evans Method of teaching Laban/Bartenieff-based modern dance. She has taught and performed internationally with BIODANCE, Randy James Dance Works, Paul Mosley, among others. Her areas of interest include choreography, site specific performance, improvisation, socially conscious dance work and dance on camera. BIODANCE, established in 2002, is a repertory company that performs the work of Smith, Heidi Latsky, Bill Evans, D. Chase Angier, Ivy Baldwin, Jeanne Schickler Compisi, Courtney World and more. The company is currently working on a BIO/DANCE and Social Justice Series in various community venues, supported by the Decentralization Program of the New York State Council on the Arts, administered by Livingston Arts, a member supported organization.  BIODANCE enjoys collaborating with multi-disciplinary artists in music, visual art, sculpture and technology, and is always eager to investigate non-traditional sites and settings for performance. Learn more at: facebook.com/BIODANCE1/   or   www.biodance.org  Possible Side Effects, choreographed by Jeanne Schickler Compisi is an examination of the roles pharmaceuticals play in our lives and the risks people take to seek relief from their issues.

 

Daystar/Rosalie Jones (Pembina Chippewa) specializes in “native modern dance”. In directing her own company Daystar: Contemporary Dance-Drama of Indian America, she has choreographed over forty works in as many years through the perspective of Indigenous ancestry and cultural values. Daystar is based in Rochester, NY. Visible Spirit, Invisible Body – Living in the human body is both a privilege and a responsibility. Is it possible to respect a body when it no longer resonates as privileged? The Remembering Dance (Grandmother/Age) is excerpted from No Home but the Heart, a full evening Daystar production which has toured the USA, Canada and Ireland. Inspired by family stories going back four generations, we see the “Grandmother”, (circa early 1900’s) speaking and feeling the ravages of her traditional people’s colonization.
 

Eran Hanlon is Artistic Director of Hanlon Dance & Company and Founder of A Willoughby Production located in the greater Rochester, NY area. His choreography recently featured in New York City and Beijing, with consulting work in Romania. His work premieres consistently at regional theatres, galleries, and colleges & universities. He was recognized by City Newspaper as Best New Choreographer at the 2014 Rochester Fringe Festival. His award winning video creations have screened at national and international film festivals. He featured on the cover of the Winter, 2013 issue of Metropolitan in recognition of his best-in-show digital image Witness to Memory. Through the Roof of Your Mouth is a dance theatre piece that explores sexuality & violence in performance. This work develops out of Hanlon’s digital image project featuring Alaina Olivieri entitled ‘Void,’ which exhibited at Nu Movement this past April. The excerpt performed is a 10-minute duet choreographed and performed by Hanlon & Olivieri. The first iteration of this piece premiered as a quintet at Nazareth College this past April and there are plans to develop it further into a full evening length piece of work.

 

Marcelo Kuna (São Paulo, Brasil) is a dancer and singer with a B.A. in Communication and the Body Arts (PUC-SP, 2012-2015). A certified DanceAbility teacher (www.danceability.com), he also has experience in Musical Theatre, and Meditation. He has participated in workshops at the Graduate Musical Theatre Writing Program (Tisch-NYU), Stella Adler Studio of Acting (NYC), Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA), V.O.I.C.Experience Foundation (Sherrill Milnes), DanceAbility International (Alito Alessi), and Núcleo Dança Aberta (São Paulo). He would like to thank Secretaria Estadual de Cultura de Minas Gerais for supporting the trip, and for giving him the opportunity to show his dance work at MuCCC. Many beijos for Laurie, Ruben and Cielo for their second and extremely kind invite, and for Gina Bonati, who has been such an incredible friend. Namaskar!  Pássaros (Birds) is a reenactment of the final bird attack scene from the movie The Birds (1963) by Alfred Hitchcock. This performative action came about in the Creative Labs taught by Brazilian contemporary dance artists Vera Sala and Gaby Imparato, at the prestigious Communication and the Body Arts program from the Pontifical Catholic University of São Paulo (PUC-SP). A video dance was also created from the original work, and is available onhttps://vimeo.com/128681547.

In addition to maintaining a private studio out of her home, she is currently on the piano faculty at the Community School of Music and Art in Ithaca. She has performed as a soloist, a chamber musician, and a composer, and has a great interest in collaborative and multi-media projects. “This brand new work is an exploration of Small Talk. It is an excuse for us to play, create, and converse using the mediums of movement and music while gaining inspiration from one of the most common and mundane daily activities we all know. Dances at the MUCCC is the premier of this piece!”

 

Kaitley Wozer earned her bachelors degrees in Dance and Biology from William Smith College, where she graduated in 2015 with Honors in Dance and the Janet Seeley Award for outstanding achievement in dance performance, choreography, and scholarship.  Wozer has been composing her own works since 2013 and continues to work on her choreography in Buffalo, where she currently lives and contributes to biomedical research.  As a choreographer, Wozer values dancer diversity, collaboration, abstraction of human experience, as well as the joy and aesthetic of body play. Bark like a frog is a duet that explores the ways in which we approach life transitions and novel situations.  Using movement, space, and relationships, the work aims to act either as window or mirror to reflect and frame the particular challenges of this human experience.

Artists Bios

 

Gina Bonati (NYC) started taking dancing seriously as a teenager and has been so very lucky with more than a few wonderful teachers along the way. She stopped dancing in 2003 in order to take acting more seriously but about two years ago realized there was more to do as a dancer and dance maker. She has just earned her MFA at Mills College and that will add to the BFA from Juilliard and who knows what will become of her with all that pedigree. A modest collection of her work is archived in the Lincoln Center Library of Performing Arts, Dance Collection. She has done all kinds of dancing from ballet to Cunningham to contact improv (where she earned the moniker, gina, the contact ballerina) to various release techniques and on and on. Laurie MacFarlane and Gina go back decades when they met as pick up dancers in a now forgotten pick up company and went on to produce all kinds of dance events around New York City in the early 90s. It is so nice to be back with her Laurie.

“Many years ago, I fell in love with paper. I had an assignment to make work on 3 words: Adjacent, Against and Upon. The Lover appeared. but of course.”

 

Donna Davenport has been performing, presenting her choreography, and collaborating with artists in Rochester for decades, most recently with Bio/Dance and Social Justice (2015). She is a Professor of Dance at Hobart and William Smith Colleges. Belles of Hell was commissioned for “Music Village,” a recital of David McGuire’s compositions in April of this year. The dance was created to evoke the haunting, unpredictable, textured landscape of the electronic score. The piece is a series of solos that culminates in a quartet of female characters given birth within the dramatic score.

 

Kathy Diehl, MFA, MSW has been performing in the Rochester area and beyond since 1984. She is the artistic director of KDiehl Danceworks, a project based dance collective (www.kdiehldanceworks.com) and currently teaches dance and movement studies at the University of Rochester.  In Fall 2016, Diehl will join Cleveland State University’s Department of Theatre and Dance as their new Assistant Professor of Dance. Space, both inner and outer, becomes palpable and alive because of the moving body. In/out is an inquiry into that ongoing navigation.

 

Leigh Ann Kabatra (NJ holds a BA in Dance and Sociology from Emory University and an MFA in Dance from Mills College. She has shown choreography through the Emory Dance Company, through Dance Canvas at the 14th Street Playhouse in Atlanta, GA and through 20 Points of View at Luna Dance Institute in Berkeley, CA. Retrospective, a duet, uses the spatial arrangement of dancers and overlapping phrase work to depict deja vu, jaime vu, and presque vu. The dancers trace spatial patterns with their movements to indicate the past and present and then conflate these circles to represent deja vu and jaime vu. The piece ends in a counterpoint phrase with one dancer closely mimicking but never quite duplicating the other’s movement to represent presque vu.

 

Caroline Liviakis (CA) is a choreographer and dance educator based in the San Francisco Bay Area. She holds a B.A. in dance and philosophy from Loyola Marymount University and an M.F.A. in dance from Mills College. She has ten years of dance teaching experience in ballet, jazz, tap, hip hop, contemporary, modern, creative dance, and musical theater; she currently teaches to students ranging from ages two to eighty around the Bay Area. She has also taught at the collegiate level at Mills College, College of Marin, and Napa Valley College. The solo, A Thuper Therious Dance, is a long awaited experiment of performing to house music while under the concert dance setting. The duet, Whatchu Lookin At?, explores the performative act of saying no to being looked at, and how this can be used as a highly successful tool to increase being paid attention to.

 

For more than 20 years, Laurie MacFarlane has performed her choreography and improvisations throughout the US, in Canada and Mexico; in theaters, on the street, in windows, cafes, and even a garage. She has made many solo pieces that use text, props, costume and movement to create characters and dream-like narratives. Laurie is currently an Artist-in-Residence at MuCCC. Thanks go to John, Doug, Kevin, Cassandra, and all the other MuCCC’ers, as well as her family. 2 Stories, 1 Dance is exactly that.

 

Marcelo Kuna (São Paulo, Brasil) is a dancer and singer with a B.A. in Communication and the Body Arts (PUC-SP, 2012-2015). A certified DanceAbility teacher (www.danceability.com), he also has experience in Musical Theatre, and Meditation.

A video dance was also created from the original work, and is available onhttps://vimeo.com/128681547.

 

Shannon Stubblefield (CA) is a multidisciplinary artist from the Bay Area. She gained interest for dance at San Francisco State University, obtaining her Dance BA in 2004. She continued to study dance at Mills College, completing a MFA in Choreography and Performance in 2014, as well as a written thesis on the Nude Female Performer. At Mills, Shannon also worked in video production, leading her to her current position as Project Coordinator with SmartShoot, a Photo/Video networking company based in San Francisco, CA. She has gratefully performed in works by Cathleen McCarthy, Byron Seddens, Paco Gomez, Ori Folmin, Shinichi Iova-Koga, and Sheldon Smith. Shannon aspires to direct her own multidisciplinary art company, targeting collaboration amongst many art forms. Impasse is the place one arrives at, knowing there is no way out – it is a dead end. This piece is a journey to this place – the belief that this road is going somewhere. Impasse, from a distance, can appear permeable.

 

Anne Harris Wilcox, MFA, is currently a Senior Lecturer at the University of Rochester, and the Past -President of the New York State Dance Education Association (President, 2012-2015). She is a NYS permanently certified K-12 dance educator and the Artistic Director of the Present Tense Dance Company, which she founded in 1991.

She stopped dancing in 2003 in order to take acting more seriously but about two years ago realized there was more to do as a dancer and dance maker. She has just earned her MFA at Mills College and that will add to the BFA from Juilliard and who knows what will become of her with all that pedigree. A modest collection of her work is archived in the Lincoln Center Library of Performing Arts, Dance Collection. She has done all kinds of dancing from ballet to Cunningham to contact improv (where she earned the moniker, gina, the contact ballerina) to various release techniques and on and on. Laurie MacFarlane and Gina go back decades when they met as pick up dancers in a now forgotten pick up company and went on to produce all kinds of dance events around New York City in the early 90s. It is so nice to be back with her Laurie.

“Many years ago, I fell in love with paper. I had an assignment to make work on 3 words: Adjacent, Against and Upon. The Lover appeared. but of course.”

 

Donna Davenport has been performing, presenting her choreography, and collaborating with artists in Rochester for decades, most recently with Bio/Dance and Social Justice (2015). She is a Professor of Dance at Hobart and William Smith Colleges. Belles of Hell was commissioned for “Music Village,” a recital of David McGuire’s compositions in April of this year. The dance was created to evoke the haunting, unpredictable, textured landscape of the electronic score. The piece is a series of solos that culminates in a quartet of female characters given birth within the dramatic score.

 

Kathy Diehl, MFA, MSW has been performing in the Rochester area and beyond since 1984. She is the artistic director of KDiehl Danceworks, a project based dance collective (www.kdiehldanceworks.com) and currently teaches dance and movement studies at the University of Rochester.  In Fall 2016, Diehl will join Cleveland State University’s Department of Theatre and Dance as their new Assistant Professor of Dance. “Space, both inner and outer, becomes palpable and alive because of the moving body. In/out is an inquiry into that ongoing navigation.”

 

Emily Dove is a Certified Laban Movement Analyst who lives and works in the Finger Lakes Region. She received her undergraduate degree in dance and Africana studies from Hobart and William Smith Colleges and her CLMA from Integrated Movement Studies. Belonging is an evening length work that explores dance as a form of resistance during Apartheid in South Africa. This selection from the work looks at vulnerability and strength within the human body.

 

Leigh Ann Kabatra (NJ) holds a BA in Dance and Sociology from Emory University and an MFA in Dance from Mills College. She has shown choreography through the Emory Dance Company, through Dance Canvas at the 14th Street Playhouse in Atlanta, GA and through 20 Points of View at Luna Dance Institute in Berkeley, CA. Retrospective, a duet, uses the spatial arrangement of dancers and overlapping phrase work to depict deja vu, jaime vu, and presque vu. The dancers trace spatial patterns with their movements to indicate the past and present and then conflate these circles to represent deja vu and jaime vu. The piece ends in a counterpoint phrase with one dancer closely mimicking but never quite duplicating the other’s movement to represent presque vu.

 

Marcelo Kuna (São Paulo, Brasil) is a dancer and singer with a B.A. in Communication and the Body Arts (PUC-SP, 2012-2015). A certified DanceAbility teacher (www.danceability.com), he also has experience in Musical Theatre, and Meditation.

He would like to thank Secretaria Estadual de Cultura de Minas Gerais for supporting the trip, and for giving him the opportunity to show his dance work at MuCCC. Many beijos for Laurie, Ruben and Cielo for their second and extremely kind invite, and for Gina Bonati, who has been such an incredible friend. Namaskar!  Pássaros (Birds) is a reenactment of the final bird attack scene from the movie The Birds (1963) by Alfred Hitchcock. This performative action came about in the Creative Labs taught by Brazilian contemporary dance artists Vera Sala and Gaby Imparato, at the prestigious Communication and the Body Arts program from the Pontifical Catholic University of São Paulo (PUC-SP). A video dance was also created from the original work, and is available onhttps://vimeo.com/128681547.

She has also taught at the collegiate level at Mills College, College of Marin, and Napa Valley College. The solo, A Thuper Therious Dance, is a long awaited experiment of performing to house music while under the concert dance setting. The duet, Whatchu Lookin At?, explores the performative act of saying no to being looked at, and how this can be used as a highly successful tool to increase being paid attention to.

 

Ruben T. Ornelas has presented his dances in Guatemala, Mexico, USA, Canada, and Uganda.  Special thanks to Laurie, John, Doug, Kevin, Cassandra and the staff at MuCCC for making “Dances at MuCCC” possible. Soloing is three dances to poetry by Phillip Levine.

She has gratefully performed in works by Cathleen McCarthy, Byron Seddens, Paco Gomez, Ori Folmin, Shinichi Iova-Koga, and Sheldon Smith. Shannon aspires to direct her own multidisciplinary art company, targeting collaboration amongst many art forms. Impasse is the place one arrives at, knowing there is no way out – it is a dead end. This piece is a journey to this place – the belief that this road is going somewhere. Impasse, from a distance, can appear permeable.

Isabel Almeida lives and works near Buffalo, NY.  Isabel has been writing throughout her life; performing her work is an art still in its infant stages.  “I appreciate the opportunity to be part of this cultural program of dance and poetry.  What better way to celebrate and express life, in all its myriad ways.”

Enjoy what you have instead of stressing over what you don’t have.”

For more than 20 years, Laurie MacFarlane has performed her choreography and improvisations throughout the US, in Canada and Mexico; in theaters, on the street, in windows, cafes, and even a garage.

Her composition methodology is process based, incorporating collaboration with other artists and multidisciplinary concepts to create comprehensive, socially engaged, and aesthetically unique pieces. Naef’s work takes on political projects, and in Gratiae she explores the representational and material violence against women through the social construction of femininity. She is working with the concepts of power, objectification, performance, support, and audience.

I am Lady Audrey (Audrey Sowell). I began my adventure with words when I was seemingly alone and reflective at 19. This was when I was blessed with my first born. As he grew inside of me I discovered that I was focused determine. For the first time I stood still long enough to enjoy reading. I actually enjoyed the pictures that danced in my mind when allowed words to lift me up and take me on journeys to faraway places. I soon began to uses words to create my own pictures and create my own journeys. I was introduced to my true self and I loved her. This discovery has lead me to becoming a published author, an inspiring poet, and a creative story teller. I’ve had the opportunity to lead workshops and small groups helping others identifying and communicating their emotions. I am excited to have the opportunity to combine poetry with the art of dance. I am honored to share with you the gift that has been given to me. Thank you for welcoming me into your tribe on this special occasion.

The Language Archive
Written by: Julia Cho      Directed by: Jeff Siuda
May 27-June 4

This romantic-comedy in the spirit of magical-realist writers like Salman Rushdie and Gabriel Garcia Marquez tells the story of George, a world-renowned linguist and head of the prestigious Language Archive.

IMG_4438 rev
So consumed is George with preserving and documenting the dying languages of far-flung cultures that he is unable to see that his wife, Mary, is planning on leaving him, or that his long-time lab assistant, Emma, is desperately in love with him. In addition, his professional life is upended when he learns that the last two surviving speakers if Elloway, reputed to be the world’s most beautiful language and soon to be recorded for the Archive, are currently giving each other the silent treatment.

Throw in a mysterious baker, an intimidating language tutor, and the founder of the universal language Esperanto, and what you have is a hilarious and moving theatrical fable about what we really mean when we say “I love you.”

During the Serbian-Bulgarian War of 1885 a noble young Bulgarian woman (Raina) aids an escaping enemy soldier (Bluntschli) she calls “her chocolate cream soldier”. Some months later, the war resolved, the soldier is unexpectedly invited as a guest by her father (Petkoff) and fiancé (Saranoff). Comedy ensues as hearts follow courses that were not anticipated. Shaw delves into romantic entanglements and the heroic ideal with his usual humor and insight.
Classics Theater of Rochester is an inclusive and educationally based non-profit dedicated to bringing great works of literature to the Rochester stage. This is our fifth Shaw production in as many years. We presented “The Philanderer” at MuCCC in 2014 and “Candida” in 2015. You could almost call us Rochester’s Shaw Company.

Performances: May 13, 14, 19, 20, and 21 at 8 PM and May 15 at 2 PM.
