CUNY Dance Initiative and John Jay College, in collaboration with Dušan Týnek Dance Theatre, present the world premiere of Anna at the Gerald Lynch Theater at John Jay College.
Anna is an evening-length contemporary dance-theater performance by choreographer Dušan Týnek inspired by Tolstoy's classic Russian novel Anna Karenina. An exploration of love and infidelity within the structures of stifling social mores, Anna sidesteps a conventional retelling of the novel, focusing instead on the essence of its characters and their situations.
Adapted from Henry James's classic 1903 novella, The Beast in the Jungle is the story of John Marcher, a man haunted by personal demons, whose great yet unfulfilled love affair with an unforgettable woman spans decades and continents. With a waltz-inspired instrumental score and dazzling choreography that traverses the worlds of ballet and contemporary dance, this powerful and romantic tale of love and loss reunites the remarkable creative team behind the Vineyard's acclaimed The Scottsboro Boys.
The Beast in the Jungle fuses dance, drama, and music by multi-Tony Award-winning composer John Kander (Cabaret), Tony-nominated playwright David Thompson (Flora, the Red Menace), and multi-Tony-winning director-choreographer Susan Stroman (The Producers).
Broadway Bares, the sexy striptease spectacular with hypnotic choreography returns to Hammerstein Ballroom. This annual extravaganza features seductive production numbers from more than 150 of the most talented dancers on Broadway. Directing the show is Nick Kenkel, co-choreographer of Half Time at Paper Mill Playhouse, and Laya Barak, an accomplished dancer-choreographer whose work has appeared in the last four incarnations of Broadway Bares.
Broadway Bares was created in 1992 by Jerry Mitchell, then a Broadway dancer, as a way to raise awareness and money for those living with HIV/AIDS. In Broadway Bares's first year, Mitchell and six of his friends danced on a New York City bar and raised $8,000.
Created especially for families with children ages 5-10, The Colonial Nutcracker sets Tchaikovsky's classic ballet in wintry colonial Yorktown during the Revolutionary War.

Rose Menes' delightful staging and choreography, coupled with colorful costumes and Tchaikovsky's enduring score, will captivate audiences of all ages.

A witty mosaic of memories drawn from a ballerina before and after her brain hemorrhage. Rebeccah Bogue stars in this unapologetic new work that embraces the many identities we collect in our lifetime.

Since moving to NYC in 2008, Bec has choreographed 11 ballets — the most recent, a tes souhaits, debuted at the Alvin Ailey Studio Theater.
