Join Alison Cook Beatty Dance and award-winning collaborating artists Shem Guibbory and Anne de Marre for the virtual premiere performance of In The Forest between Life and Death (working title) on Wednesday, June 30th at 7:30 p.m.

This FREE event for the public is sponsored by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs.

Artistic Director Alison Cook-Beatty choreographed the quintet to the music of Bartok's astonishing Sonata No. 2 in the natural beauty of Central Park's Ramble. Music Supervisor Shem Guibbory and Dramaturg Anne Catherine de Mare closely worked with Alison and the dancers. Exploring themes of loss, balance, and the restorative healing of the natural world, the piece is a powerful testament to the power of both grief and love.

Dancers Fiona Oba, Vera Paganin, Richard Sayama, Ricardo Barrett, and Charles Scheland star in this new work. Fellow company member Miranda Stuck and guest artists Isa Braun, Mary Puart, Laura Espitia, Holly Hwang, Ioanna Ioannides, Miranda Runyon, Daisy Morales, and Olivia Passarelli also dance throughout the enchanted forest.

We would like to thank costume designer Ali Tagavi, videographer and film editor Ellen Maynard, camera assistant/second camera person Jerry Aquino. As well as Niccolo Orsolani, Robert Sutherland, Emma Gerstein, and Ms. Olga Berest, founder and owner of the Berest Dance Center, and St. Luke's Lutheran Church NYC. 

Please RSVP here. Donations are welcome to support our dancers.
