COLIN DUNNE’S “OUT OF TIME” NEW YORK PREMIERE
Baryshnikov Arts Center, October 19-22
Wed - Sat / 8 PM
Tickets: $25 - BUY NOW / 866 811 4111
BAC and Irish Arts Center co-present internationally-acclaimed Irish step dancer Colin Dunne, who brings movement, sound, and image together to create a dialogue between past and present. Directed by Sinéad Rushe, Out of Time is intimate and playful -- both an unsentimental homage to Irish step dance and a bold investigation of Dunne's personal and artistic relationship with a tradition that has shaped his life

"An extraordinarily moving memoir in motion... It will delight and provoke in equal measure." - The Irish Independent

TAP EXPERIENCE -USA premiere !
November 1st 2011@ GALAPAGOS - 8pm (16 Main Street, Brooklyn. cover: $16 at door, $12 with adv. res/ www.galapagosartspace.com)

November 2nd 2011 @ The EGG For The Performing Arts - 8pm (Albany : www.theegg.org)
Made in Barcelona, this ground-breaking "Tap Experience" takes its audience aboard a multi-dimensional audio and visual journey. Fueled by the common desire to flirt with new technologies while honoring a tradition deriving from ancient african practices, the show offers a meditative reflection on the making of poetry (originally inspired by the spirit of Andalusian poet Federico Garcia Lorca) which gradually escalates into a spectacular buffet of sound, images and improvisational dances reconnecting with the celebrative spirit of the trance.

At this year's JUBALEE, CHRP will honor Chicago civic leaders Donna LaPietra and Bill Kurtis with a JUBA Award for their Lifetime Commitment to Chicago and longtime support of CHRP. "Donna and Bill are known as tireless champions of many nonprofit institutions in Chicago, and they have made a critical difference in CHRP's growth and success over the last five years, leading annual fundraising events and championing our mission to promote social reconciliation through percussive arts," said CHRP Founder and Director Lane Alexander.

The evening begins with a cocktail reception and a silent auction, followed by a live auction and performances including the North American premiere of Rasta Thomas' Tap Stars, CHRP's performing ensemble BAM!, The Mexican Folkloric Dance Company of Chicago, Chicago Dance Crash, Mayfair Dance Academy and other special guests. The evening concludes with dinner and a dessert reception where guests can meet the evening's performers.

CHICAGO HUMAN RHYTHM PROJECT: GLBOAL RHYTHMS
CHICAGO--The Chicago Human Rhythm Project (CHRP), the world's longest-running year-round presenter of American tap dance and contemporary percussive arts, opens its 22nd season with Global Rhythms, its annual community-building, shared-revenue performances that spotlight national and international artists. Performances are November 26 and 27 at the Harris Theater for Music and Dance in Millennium Park.

Global Rhythms artists
   The Mexican Folkloric Dance Company of Chicago (Nov. 27 only) will present dances from Veracruz and Jalisco, Mexican states with a rich tradition of intricate stomping steps.
   
    Ensemble Español Spanish Dance Theater (Nov. 26 only) performs a suite of Flamenco- style dances from Andalucia, the southern part of Spain, including its masterwork Bolero to the hypnotic music of Maurice Ravel.
   
Step Afrika! (Nov. 26 and 27), returning for the third year with all-new works, is the first professional company in the world dedicated to stepping, a unique dance tradition that grew out of the song and dance rituals practiced by historically African-American fraternities and sororities in the mid-1900s. Step Afrika! creates an "ocean of sound" with contemporary stepping and hip hop beside ancient Zulu dances, South African gumboot dancing and more.

Ticket information
Global Rhythms performances take place Saturday, November 26 at 8 p.m. (Step Afrika! and Ensemble Español Spanish Dance Theater) and Sunday, November 27 at 7 p.m. (Step Afrika! and Mexical Folkloric Dance Company of Chicago) at the Harris Theater for Music and Dance in Millennium Park, 205 E.
