It begins when you walk through the doors of the storied Radio City Music Hall. Perhaps you pause for a moment and stand to admire the art deco lobby before making your way to your seat. After a hush, the curtain slowly rises, the music swells, and Rockettes appear. In perfect unison they dance across the stage, mesmerizing in their precision. And just like that, you're transported to another place, where reindeer prance and dash through the snow, where rag dolls spring to life and wooden soldiers march in a fantastic parade. For a time, the hustle and bustle of the world outside disappear and you are reminded of the true meaning and spirit of the holiday season.

Commissioned by Dixon Place, Almodóvar Dystopia, by the renowned downtown dance artist Antonio Ramos and his outrageous company, the Gangbangers, is part Latino-flavored tribute to the Spanish film director, part humorous celebration of LGBT culture, and part bold political statement against the body-negative and repressed nature of the world we live in. Featuring video, movement, spoken word, and gourmet surprise, the piece makes its case for the affirmation of all things physical through Ramos' trademark chaotic and joyful storytelling style. Parental guidance strongly cautioned.

Back in antiquity, doctors did the best they could with what little knowledge of the body mankind had discovered. To fully heal, wounds would often have to be excised, cutting off infected tissue. Most sickness was "cured" by bloodletting. And aren't we always told to not remove a glass shard lest you want to bleed? Meg Buckner has two birth parents who she has never met. She has two parents who adopted her. She has one stepfather, later legal father. And finally, she has one stepmother who is shattered glass, trying to pick at her shards without bleeding out. This is a story of pain, but mostly of memory and love.
Choreographers create...on one condition: they must abide by the same crazy rule!
A seat for contemplation is left maimed on the side of a road, an authentic impulse turns into a loop and loses itself, a meaningful posture descends into vanity and becomes simple imitation. These are remnants of us all — eager, wanting, with bodies unmoved.
Hello, World! I'm Rebeccah. I call myself a dancer. I mostly look like a dancer. But I don't entirely fit. My outline's all wrong. I'm too tall. I'm knock-kneed. I have a hole in the back of my head. But you can have my torso. It's perfect. And you can have my stories, too. Tonight I'll perform them for you from memory…almost. We may need some help along the way.
Previously a beloved fairy tale and Academy Award‐winning movie, The Red Shoes has seduced audiences and inspired generations of dancers with its tale of obsession, possession, and one girl's dream to be the greatest dancer in the world. Victoria Page lives to dance, but her ambitions become a battleground between the two men who inspire her passion. For the production's New York premiere at City Center, New Adventures star Ashley Shaw, who originated the role, and New York City Ballet principal dancer Sara Mearns, making her debut as a guest artist with the company, alternate in the part of Victoria Page. Rising star Cordelia Braithwaite performs the role at the matinee performance on November 4.
Matthew Bourne's (Swan Lake) Olivier Award‐winning adaptation of the classic Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger film is set to a new score arranged by Terry Davies, which uses the mesmerizing music of golden‐age Hollywood composer Bernard Herrmann (most famous for his collaborations with Alfred Hitchcock and Orson Welles). The Red Shoes is Bourne's first new production in four years and had its world premiere at Sadler's Wells, London, in December 2016, where it opened to rave reviews and a sold‐out eight‐week season.
Choreographer-director Georgina Bates collaborates with journalist Jihii Jolly, documentarian Diana Diroy, and others on a timely mixed-media dance theater work exploring life under the radar, colored by the immigrant, refugee, and outcast perspectives. Art meets journalism to build an immersive, powerful voice through the interplay of film, dance, and live sound. This conversation between media and movement centers on the pressing issues of belonging: being home in a community that is not one's own, but that can perhaps offer a fresh start.
This production is a part of SubletSeries@HERE: Co-op, HERE's curated summer rental program, which provides artists with subsidized space and equipment as well as technical support.
A unique project exploring relationship between fashion and dance.

It is a state academic company and the artistic representative of the republic of Georgia. The company has appeared at Madison Square Garden, Metropolitan Opera House, Lincoln Center, and Broadway for a limited time.
Laurie Berg, the 2016 Tom Murrin Performance Awardee, presents an evening-length performative takeover of Dixon Place. A jewelry show and live performance mash-up, Berg draws from a pastiche of past visual and performative works in what she calls an "early career retrospective" to look towards the future — and it's terrifying. Members of the NYC performance community model their own commissioned jewelry pieces that Berg has created over the past 10 years. The evening will also feature the unveiling of Berg's new cockroach-inspired jewelry line available for purchase after the show!
As children, our freedom and creativity, sense of play, storytelling ability, and constructive tendencies inspired our parents and teachers to believe in our ability to do and be more. As grown-ups, we've lost the ability to play, and live in a world full of anger, hostility, war, and violence. This performance revisits a time when the world was full of innocence, happiness, wonder, and, most importantly, play.
