Event Description

Avi Scher & Dancers presents its third New York Season, unveiling three World Premieres, from April 7-9, 2012 at the Ailey Citigroup Theater, 405 W. 55th Street, NYC (at Ninth Avenue). Performances: Saturday at 8pm, Sunday at 3pm, Monday at 8pm.  Tickets are $29 ($16 for students) and are available starting March 7, 2012 at www.smarttix.com or by phone at 212-868-4444.

 

Avi Scher & Dancers provides audiences with the unique opportunity to see brand new works by choreographer Avichai Scher in intimate venues at affordable ticket prices. Guest artists from the world’s most celebrated ballet companies will be featured in each performance.  The World Premieres include an as-yet-untitled pas de deux, featuring Herman Cornejo, a principal with American Ballet Theatre, and Misa Kuranaga, a principal with the Boston Ballet.  The two stars have danced together in many galas and festivals and have formed a celebrated partnership.  This is the first work created specifically for the pair and will mark their first performance together in New York City.  The piece is set to music written for the guitar by Heitor Villa-Lobos, and will be performed live onstage by Guitarist Nate Brown.  A second pas de deux is performed with music from A Midsummer Night’s Dream and has a contemporary, humorous touch.  The third Premiere features ten dancers, including six corps members from American Ballet Theatre, and is set to an electronic score by various composers. An excerpt from Scher’s 2010 work, Touch, including Joffrey Ballet dancer Derrick Agnoletti, will complete the evening.
