      LAKE TAHOE DANCE COLLECTIVE PRESENTS ITS FIFTH ANNUAL LAKE TAHOE DANCE FESTIVAL

      JULY 26-28

      GATEKEEPERS MUSEUM TAHOE CITY & WEST END BEACH AT DONNER LAKE

      Featuring guests Ashley Bouder, Stephen Hanna, Traci Finch, Kristina Berger, Kristin Draucker, Vincent Chavez and Keryn Breiterman-Loader in works by Robert Moses, Paul Taylor, Lauren Lovette, Marco Pelle and Lester Horton.

      This year’s Festival features a special premiere commission, T+I, by choreographer Marco Pelle for guest artists Stephen Hanna (New York City Ballet, Billy Elliott, An American in Paris) and Traci Finch (Suzanne Farrell Ballet, New Chamber Ballet).

      “We are fortunate to be in a place that we can make the dream come true of commissioning premieres for the Festival,” says Hanna, “The mix of rare older works along with new works from groundbreaking choreographers is one of the things that makes our Festival unique.”

      Another highlight is the California premiere of Red Spotted Purple, a solo for New York City Ballet principal dancer Ashley Bouder. Created for her by fellow NYCB dancer Lauren Lovette to music by Stephanie Ann Boyd. The work will have its world premiere in July at the Joyce Theater in New York City as part of their Ballet Festival.

      The 2018 Program Lineup Includes:

      Robert Moses KIN’s This State of Annihilation, a duet created in 1997 about love and longing, performed by Robert Moses KIN dancers Vincent Chavez and Keryn Breiterman-Loader. 

      Choreographer Marco Pelle’s T+I (world premiere) is Lake Tahoe Dance Festival’s first commissioned work. Stephen Hanna, formerly of New York City Ballet and Billy Elliott, An American in Paris, On the Town and Hello Dolly on Broadway, pairs with Traci Finch of Suzanne Farrell Ballet and New Chamber Ballet. 

      Lester Horton’s Sarong Paramaribo returns to the Lake Tahoe stage, danced by Kristina Berger, in the original costume from the work’s premiere in 1950 in Los Angeles. This rarely performed work was described by Horton’s late partner and set designer Frank Eng, who lived in Lake Tahoe, as “East Asian meets Afrique in Hispaniola in a cool fusion of contrasting sensualities.”

       

      Lauren Lovette’s Red Spotted Purple  danced by New York City Ballet principal Ashley Bouder makes its west coast debut after its world premiere during Ashley Bouder Project’s season at the Joyce this summer. This solo is a fresh collaboration between three strong female artists with original music composed of three movements. This experimental solo plays with the idea of an inner battle between a dancer’s physical person and the music that drives their feet to dance.

      An excerpt from Paul Taylor’s Cascade  danced by Paul Taylor Dance Company member Kristin Draucker. The unlikely “collaboration” between a German composer from music’s Baroque era – J.S. Bach – and an American modern dance pioneer resulted in this elegant work in which men are reverential to women.  The dance features highly energetic, free and open movement with complex patterns.

      The Young Dancers Workshop, a three-week intensive for dancers ages 10 and up, offers training with festival artists in small class sizes with an emphasis on classical ballet, modern technique and improvisation. Workshop participants will also perform a classical work and a new creation by festival artist Traci Finch.

      Lake Tahoe Dance Festival is made possible in part through support from The Arts Council of Placer Country, Walton Engineering, the Tahoe Truckee Community Foundation and the Tahoe Weekly.  Additional support from North Lake Tahoe Historical Society, Rodney Strong Winery, Fat Lemon Catering, Tahoe Truckee Community Foundation, Alpenglow Sports, Plumas Bank, Tahoe City Downtown Association, West Shore Association, Trunk Show and Wolfdale’s Cuisine Unique.
