New York Theatre Ballet presents Between the Acts: Sir Richard Alston on Sunday, February 14, 2021 at 11am ET on Zoom. Taking a look at the life and works of NYTB's Resident Choreographer Sir Richard Alston, this installment of Between the Acts will also feature former NYTB principal dancer and Hiland Artistic Director at NDI New Mexico Steven Melendez, who has been a fixture of Alston's work with NYTB beginning with A Rugged Flourish in 2011. The conversation between Sir Richard Alston, Steven Melendez, and NYTB Artistic Director Diana Byer will cover choreography, music, influence and more. RSVP to email@example.com receive a Zoom link prior to Sunday. Following the live event, the conversation will be available to view on Vimeo and social media.
