Artistic Director Jim May and the Anna Sokolow Theatre/Dance Ensemble is seeking support for the company's reconstruction of choreographer Anna Sokolow's seminal work Odes (1965) not performed since 1968. Odes is a work in three parts set to scores by contemporary music pioneer Edgar Varèse and the second installment in a live music for dance initiative appropriately titled "Sounds of Sokolow", a collaboration with members of Fusion Bande under the direction of Kenneth Hamrick. This program underscores Ms. Sokolow's close artistic and personal relationships with the composers and artists of her day; with Odes she expresses her surprising reflection on Greek Theater and Sculpture and a "powerful work about civilzation." 
 
Please help us bring this much anticipated revival of Odes, a classic work of modern dance, back to the stage. Your donation will go directly to supporting the live music provided by members of Fusion Bande and help cover the costs of an expanded company of 23 dancers required to perform the dance. Not seen for over 40 years, Odes should prove a revelation for a new generation of dance enthusiasts.

Per i nostri amici italiani


Cari amici oltremare, vi scriviamo per chiedere un piccolo contibuto per la compagnia Sokolow Theatre/Dance Ensemble che sta cercando di raccogliere $5,500 per avere musica dal vivo ai nostri prossimi spettacoli dal 10 al 13 novembre 2011. Le donazioni vengono fatte tramite un sito web (kickstarter) dove chi vuole puo’ donare dei soldi (facendo un pegno); se non si raggiunge la cifra di $5,500 per il 5 novembre il tutto si cancella automaticamente. Anche una piccola contibuzione aiuta!

Lo spettacolo presentera’ una coreografia di Anna Sokolow del 1965 (Odes), che non e’ stata vista dal 1968. Il nostro direttore artistico, Jim May, faceva parte del cast originale, ed e’ un onore per noi imparare da lui questa meravigliosa danza creata per 23 danzatori. Anna Sokolow e’ stata una delle coreografe piu’ influenti del ventesimo secolo negli Stati Uniti: il suo lavoro combina la modern dance con teatro, musica, poesia ed arte. Ha influenzato la grande coreografa tedesca Pina Bausch e ha partecipato nella creazione di molti musicals, incluso  il famoso “Hair” negli anni ‘60. Ci ha lasciato nel 2000 a 90 anni; la sua ultima coreografia risale al 1998.

Aiutaci a raggiungere questa cifra e a presentare questa bellissima coreografia con musica dal vivo! Per fare il vostro pegno, cliccate su “back this project” e seguite le istruzioni in inglese. Purtroppo non ci sono istruzioni in italiano. Naturalmente avete bisogno di una carta di credito.

Ringraziamo tutti di cuore!! E ovviamente siete tutti invitati agli spettacoli...:)
