SUMMERSTAGE 2018 WITH CALPULLI PERFORMING EXCERPTS FROM “BODA MEXICANA” @ Queensbridge Park

Making their SummerStage debut, the Queens-based Calpulli Mexican Dance Company’s mission is to celebrate the rich diversity of Mexican and Mexican-American cultural heritage through dance and live music. Since forming in 2003, they have successfully toured the United States, Asia and the Middle East. In New York City, they have appeared at venues such as Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center Out of Doors and others. Calpulli, whose name means “family” in the Nahuatl language, aspires to be an entity that is celebrated by its community while remaining accessible to a broader, mainstream audience. The company will be performing excerpts from “Boda Mexicana” (Mexican Wedding) including dances from the Yucatán peninsula, the Andean-influenced music from Guerrero, and the Aztec suite “Mexican Tiawi,” pronounced meh-shee-kaw tee-aw-wee, which translates to Mexicans onward.

Take Root Presents: Nicole Colbert Dance/Theatre & Logos Dance Collective @ Green Space
Sep 21 @ 8:00 pm – Sep 22 @ 10:00 pm
Take Root Presents: Nicole Colbert Dance/Theatre & Logos Dance Collective @ Green Space

Take Root Presents: Nicole Colbert Dance/Theatre & Logos Dance Collective. Nicole Colbert Dance/Theatre’s where have you been, where are you going? explores the journey away from and toward home as a physical, emotional and psychological place. The piece also contends with feminist, political and social identities in relationship to “home,” in literal and metaphorical terms. Weaving together dance, theatre, music and text, the work utilizes personal narratives that are conciliatory as well as revelatory, sometimes attached to landscapes, to further explore multiple meanings and layers in our associations with home.

Through movement, live music and the spoken word, Curved Spacetimes: Where Friedrich Nietzsche Meets Virginia Woolf aims to make public the private experience of the flow of time and to make visible the invisible nature of time itself. Let Zarathustra and Mrs. Dalloway guide you through the eternal return while you contemplate whether to live your life all over again. Come experience past, present, future, time reversal and general relativity in action as dancers’ bodies tell spacetime how to curve and curved spacetime tells dancers’ bodies how to move.

(Un)Common Ground: Green Space Artists in Dialogue @ Green Space (Virtual)
Oct 12 – Dec 31 all-day
(Un)Common Ground: Green Space Artists in Dialogue @ Green Space (Virtual) | New York | United States

Green Space is pleased to present the new virtual program “(Un)Common Ground: Green Space Artists in Dialogue.” The series brings together BIPOC choreographers who have shown work in Green Space’s programming series: Fertile Ground, Take Root, and Green Space Blooms throughout our 15-year history.

Artists rotate being virtually paired for five weeks in un-moderated discussion, prompted by questions generated by the Green Space Artist Advisory Board. Supported with video samples to contextualize their work and perspective, each artist has free reign to define their presence through this platform, designed to serve as a safe space for raw, open, honest, artist-led dialogue without preconceived results.
