The New York Baroque Dance Company Projects
The Monteverdi to Mozart Project, funded by the National Endowment for the Arts, has documented Invisible Dances and Mozart’s only ballet, Les Petits Riens. The ballets are to be promoted as historical repertoire for mainstream dance companies in the professional and university fields with the aim to include these works in their own repertoire much as a symphony orchestra season includes works of Bach and Mozart alongside later and contemporary composers. This June the company will dance in Catherine Turocy’s new choreography to Claudio Monteverdi’s Combattimento di Tancredi e Clorinda and his Ballo delle Ingrate produced by Ars Lyrica, Matthew Dirst Artistic Director.
Battlefields and Ballrooms creates performance and educational programs for historical sites. Our first performance for the re-opening of Federal Hall in NYC October, 2006 marked the beginning of an ongoing relationship with Federal Hall and the Conservancy of National Parks of New York Harbor as well as a new presence for the NYBDC in lower Manhattan. In 2009-10 we created Four Rivers to the Future with Jane Peck and Tohanash Tarrant (Shinnecock Indian Reservation on Long Island) while in residence at the C.W.Post campus of Long Island University. This dance drama is available to colleges who are interested in the French and Indian War and would like an educational community outreach program which would include participation of Native Americans. Such residencies in colleges and museums are under funded for live historical performances and we need your support to close the gap.
The annual Historical Dance Summer Workshop is being held at UC Santa Barbara this year. It is a weekend exploration of ball and country dances from the 17th century to modern times, as well as a professional studies event for choreographers, dancers and teachers. With your support we will be able to offer scholarships to deserving students and maintain the low tuition of $150.
Points of Departure, a new project of the NYBDC, supports workshops, lectures and performances focused on new work based on historical dance. We would like to present a biannual showcase of works in process by emerging choreographers. The event would include a discussion on the creative process used by each presenting choreographer.
