Experience Arch Ballet’s Summer Season with two evening performances Tuesday, August 14 – Wednesday, Aug 15 at 8:00pm at the Davenport Theatre, New York City. Celebrate with Arch Ballet at our Benefactor post-performance event “Making Waves” on Wednesday, August 15.
PERFORMANCE Arch Ballets classic “Hues of Memory” opens the evening with a madly passionate dance that transports the audience to lush landscapes galvanized by romantic memory. American Sign Language is seamlessly integrated into the movement of this amorous pas de deux, revealing in three dimensions the poetic words of world renowned photographer Luis Pons. The heartrending violin sets the temperature of this beautiful opulent work.
In contrast, “Two Steps Backward” is “ballet on steroids (The Dance Enthusiast)” with an electric EDM score, haze pyrotechnics, and bold movement. The fast and cunning display of eloquence in motion reminds us to get back up again. It is a ferocious representation of trying your hardest and still failing, but the courage to get back up again brings more dance, more actions, more innovation each time.
As a four-time recipient of The Davenport Theatre space grant, Annalise reveals her latest creation “REM” — a sleek, curious, and avant garde experiment. Perplexingly daring body lines are paired with the unconventional music choice of using the dancers’ breaths in an amplified percussive tone.
MAKING WAVES BENEFACTOR EVENT Following the Wednesday, August 15 performance, please join Arch Ballet Benefactors and dancers for an evening of philanthropic cocktails at Fashion Restaurant & Bar in support of our #feedtheballerinas campaign.
