Alison Cook Beatty Dance

Hope Ashore (world premiere) is a short duet choreographed by Alison Cook-Beatty on dancers Sasha Rydlizky and Nika Antuanette to Peter Gabriel's music - Don't Give Up (Featuring Kate Bush) in the Fall of 2020. It is our wish that this short dance film brings people a message of hope in 2021. The program continues with an encore performance of "Whale."

Choreographed in 2018, "Whale" is set to John Cage and Arvo Part's music and is inspired by the New Zealand film The Whale Rider by Niki Caro and the paintings of Sang-Hyun Chung. In both the movie and the music, there is a recurring theme of call and response infused into the choreography. 

Both dances have a universal theme of hope, and we wanted to give that to everyone at the beginning of 2021. This performance is dedicated to the Bowman Family.  Dancer Sasha Rydlizky will have her final performance with Alison Cook Beatty Dance and we will have a special bow for her at our Zoom after-party, and all are welcome.

We look forward to seeing you on January 12th at 7 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. for the Zoom afterparty honoring both The Bowman Family and dancer Sasha Rydlizky.
