SOKOLOW THEATRE/DANCE ENSEMBLE

FROM THE HORSE’S MOUTH

TO PRESENT ANNA SOKOLOW WAY

December 4-8, Theater at the 14th Street Y

Collaborative Season To Demonstrate Sokolow’s Influence

 

New York, NY, Dec. 2, 2013 – Rare video, live performance and narrative script covering Anna Sokolow’s personal struggles and the creation of Theater Dance will be presented in Anna Sokolow Way, a duel production by Sokolow Theatre/Dance Ensemble and From the Horse’s Mouth Wednesday, December 4 to Sunday, December 8 at the Theater at the 14th Street Y. Discover how Anna Sokolow influenced theater, music and dance around the world, demonstrating how art can influence one’s inner struggles and guide society.

This collaborative season will include a multi-disciplinary dance/play about Ms. Sokolow, conceived and directed by Jim May, Sokolow Ensemble’s founder, artistic director and former dancer (Bessie Award). The program will feature highlights from Dreams, Rooms, From the Diaries of Franz Kafka, Opus 65, Magritte, Magritte and more, performed by highly skilled artists dedicated to the preservation of Sokolow’s technique of voice, theater, and dance. Teenage students from Ellen Robbins’ school will also perform.  

From the Horses's Mouth, the acclaimed dance/narrative series co-directed by Tina Croll and Jamie Cunningham, will offer its unique blend of movement, storytelling and supportive visual imagery to bring Anna Sokolow vividly to life through the sharing of personal experiences by dancers, actors, critics and musicians whose lives she touched over a 60-year career in dance. Notables from the theater and dance community will partake in this intimate format of talking and dancing, in honor of Anna Sokolow’s extraordinary legacy.  

There will be three performances of Anna Sokolow Way, three performances of From the Horse’s Mouth, and a Gala combination performance of Anna Sokolow Way and From the Horse’s Mouth on Friday, December 6.

Anna Sokolow Way is partially funded by The Pierre and Tana Matisse Foundation. The production is in association with the Dance Series at the 14th Street Y.
