The Program

Ephrat Asherie Dance
Odeon (Excerpts)
Inspired by the music of early 20th-century composer Ernesto Nazareth, the unique and universally appealing choreography of Ephrat Asherie layers breaking, hip-hop, house and vogue to a buoyant mix of live classical romantic music and popular Afro-Brazilian rhythms with musical direction by Asherie's brother and collaborator, Ehud Asherie.

Parul Shah
Enduring Silence (Excerpts)
Drawing from the North Indian classical dance, Kathak, Enduring Silence takes inspiration from women and their ignored sorrows and resiliency that endure physical hardship and violence protected under the canopy of tradition.

Calpulli Mexican Dance Company
Mexika Tiawi! (Mexicans Onward!)
Roughly translated as "Mexicans Onward!" in the Náhuatl language, Mexika Tiawi! is a contemporary interpretation of ancient Aztec ritual dance by choreographers Noemy Hernandez, Daniel Jaquez and Alberto Lopez Herrera.

Dance Theatre of Harlem
Harlem on My Mind (Excerpts)
The world-famous Dance Theatre of Harlem uses music from the likes of Fats Waller, Duke Ellington and Wynton Marsalis to draw on a rich continuum of jazz and burst from the stage in a joyous and soulful ballet.

The Counterpoint Project.

The Counterpoint Project is a multimedia live performance, exhibition, and panel that seeks to reframe the discussion regarding black ballerinas contributions to dance and visual culture by confronting racial disparities and institutional discrimination that have endured in  American ballet for more than seventy years. The Counterpoint Project seeks to democratize an art form that has traditionally heralded young white bodies and sameness as its most treasured aesthetics by addressing several areas of otherness within the balletic aesthetic including: brownness, muscularity, physical disability, and accomplishment in the field.

The project creates a platform that educates communities about the historical and present  day accomplishments of groundbreaking black ballerinas in hopes of invigorating the consideration of ballet as a viable professional venture for black and brown youths. Seeing women with similar cultural, social, and economic histories dancing through barriers of biases broadens the perception of what is acceptable and fair in the world of ballet, and challenges the field to investigate the potential for intersectionality in the future.

The Counterpoint Project is comprised of five components; 
Original artwork- By contemporary artist Patrick Hammie whose paintings will feature a mixture of grand portraiture and allegories, and blur the boundaries between traditional and contemporary modes of representation.

Live Performance- an evening of powerful solo works will include historical or pivotal works in addition to original work choreographed by Endalyn Taylor and Darrell Grand Moultrie. These powerful dances join the dancers personal truths into a metaphoric embodiment of their imagined self selves, featuring national and international artists Ingrid Silva (Dance Theatre of Harlem, New York City), Cira Robinson (Ballet Black, London) as well as three other intergenerational ballerinas.

Post performance discussion- Moderated by MoBBallet (Memoirs of Blacks in Ballet) Founder and Writer Theresa Ruth Howard

Counterpoint project website-  (counterpointprojectballet.com) which will contain
audio and visual recordings of the process, performance and additional support information

Dance Theatre of Harlem in Cicinatti, Oh

Dance Theatre of Harlem (DTH) is known for its thrilling performances that successfully challenge preconceived notions. The DTH Company consists of fourteen racially diverse dance artists who perform an eclectic, demanding repertoire. From treasured classics, neo-classical works by George Balanchine and resident choreographer Robert Garland, cutting-edge contemporary works, and works that use the language of ballet to celebrate African American culture, the Company brings new life to the art form of classical ballet. In addition to performances in New York City, across the country, and abroad, Company activities that carry a message of empowerment through the arts also include engaging community through educational activities for audiences and young people.

Forty-eight years ago, Arthur Mitchell and his mentor Karel Shook founded Dance Theatre of Harlem as a beacon of hope for the youth in the underprivileged neighborhood where Mitchell grew up. An acclaimed principal dancer with George Balanchine’s New York City Ballet, Mitchell took the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. as a call to action. Drawing on his expertise and his prominence as the first African American to be a permanent member of a major U.S. ballet company, Mitchell’s ground-breaking idea was to transform the lives of young people in Harlem by providing training in classical ballet. In a few short years, his response to tragedy became a leading dance institution of unparalleled global acclaim.
