About

Rare video, live performance and narrative script covering Anna Sokolow’s personal struggles and the creation of Theater Dance will be presented in Anna Sokolow Way, a duel production by Sokolow Theatre/Dance Ensemble and From the Horse’s Mouth Wednesday, December 4 to Sunday, December 8, 2013 at the Theater at the 14th Street Y. Discover how Anna Sokolow influenced theater, music and dance around the world, demonstrating how art can influence one’s inner struggles and guide society.

This collaborative season will include a multi-disciplinary dance/play about Ms. Sokolow, conceived and directed by Jim May, Sokolow Ensemble’s founder, artistic director and former dancer (Bessie Award). The program will feature highlights from Dreams, Rooms, from the diaries of Franz Kafka, Opus 65, Magritte, Magritte and others, performed by highly skilled artists dedicated to the preservation of Sokolow’s technique of voice, theater, and dance. Teenage students from Ellen Robbins’ school will also perform.

From the Horses's Mouth, the acclaimed dance/narrative series co-directed by Tina Croll and Jamie Cunningham, will offer its unique blend of movement, storytelling and supportive visual imagery to bring Anna Sokolow vividly to life through the sharing of personal experiences by dancers, actors, critics and musicians who's lives she touched over a 60-year career in dance. Notables from the theater and dance community will partake in this intimate format of talking and dancing, in honor of Anna Sokolow’s extraordinary legacy.

Risks and challenges

Your help in funding this project is essential. Funds will go directly to pay the theater and the production. We always function in small budgets and each year becomes more difficult to get any funding from State and Government, and we always rely on the generosity of supporters like you. Keeping the artistry and memory of Anna Sokolow alive is one of the primal goals of our company, and a way to give back to someone who gave so much not only to us but to American History and American Art.
