"Dear Friends,
I have been taking Anna's photos since she was a little girl. I watched her blossom into a beautiful dancer, only to watch her ravaged by the horrors of brain cancer, chemo and radiation; leaving her paralyzed, blind and with dementia. Through her ordeal, she and her family have taught others many lessons in faith, patience, tolerance and the power of love. I could not live with myself if I did not take this opportunity to reach out to so many people who may best be able to empathize. Mostly she has taught all of us that we are very lucky to be healthy. Anna will perform for us at the gala. Please give with your heart and help the Phoenix Rising dancer in my exhibit....Anna Mott.
Thank you.
I love you.
Keiko "

Featuring Secus by Ohad Naharin,
Seven Sonatas by Alexei Ratmansky
and the world premiere of the authors by Tara Lee

Modern Choreographic Voices presents the works of some of today’s most sought-after contemporary choreographers.

Ohad Naharin is back this season with the Atlanta Ballet premiere of the incendiary Secus after electrifying audiences last year with Minus 16.

From Alexei Ratmansky, the current artist in residence at American Ballet Theatre and former artistic director of the legendary Bolshoi Ballet, Atlanta Ballet presents the hypnotic Seven Sonatas.

Tara Lee returns with a world premiere after awing audiences with 2012’s Pavo. Lee, also an accomplished dancer entering her eighteenth season with Atlanta Ballet, has proven that she is a multi-dimensional and distinctive emerging choreographer.

“Embodied Virtuosity: Dances from Disability Culture” A performance and academic presentation

“Embodied Virtuosity: Dances from Disability Culture”

A performance and academic presentation

Internationally acclaimed contemporary dancer, Alice Sheppard, will perform two solo dances, accompanied by her lecture presenting the development, history, and theory of disability dance. Sheppard calls into question what we mean by virtuosity when we talk about disabled dancers and dance.
Instead of assessing the dancer's body, she considers the importance of beauty, disability history, and the world of disability arts and culture.
This event will be videotaped and will have CART, which is real-time captioning for accessibility. Also, in vivo, verbal descriptions of her movements will be available upon request.

Date: MARCH 23, 2014  @ 2PM

Location: Dance Studio
