AMY MARSHALL DANCE COMPANY celebrates the 10th Anniversary of the company, presenting three World Premieres at The Alvin Ailey Citigroup Theater, 405 W. 55th Street, NYC (at Ninth Avenue) from March 25-28, 2010, Thursday-Saturday at 8pm and Sunday at 3pm. Tickets are 5 (students and seniors 0) and are available at
www.smarttix.com or by phone at 212-868-4444.
The evening begins with "English Suite" (2005), a classically-based dance full of sweet nuances, set to music by H.H. Parry. In five sections, the piece presents a joyous summer season blooming with the vibrancy of life. The World Premiere of "A Gift" features artistic director Amy Marshall dancing seven months pregnant with her third child, a daughter, expressing the purity and simplicity of the experience of growing a new life. In the World Premiere of "Riding the Purple Twilight", audiences are swept on a dark, sensuous journey of a young couple racing full throttle towards fame and success, stopping at nothing to get ahead. "Askew" (2000) explores the dynamics of group relationships in social situations as six dancers split into two groups confronting one another as each vies to proves his loyalty and honor. Throughout the dance people shift from one side to the other, or one against all or two against each other, which so often occurs in everyday life. The first piece choreographed by Amy Marshall, "Excerpt from Two Duets and a Quartet" (2000), set to Bach Concerto for Violin and Orchestra No. 1 in A minor is a poignant tribute to lifelong love, as the duet reveals a couple’s ease, patience and peace with one another. The World Premiere of "Going for the Gold" is comic relief in four sections, taking audiences on the rigorous journey to an Olympic medal.
Dancers: Amy Marshall, Chad Levy, Natasha Czarniewy, Aileen Roehl, Alexandra Karigan, Louis Acquisto, Jared Wootan, Laura Halzack (guest artist courtesy of Paul Taylor Dance Company), James Samson (guest artist courtesy of Paul Taylor Dance Company).
The program is appropriate for children ages five and above.
