Dance Theatre of Harlem
50th Anniversary Tour

7:30 pm Tuesday, November 12, 2019

Eisenhower Auditorium

For fifty years, Dance Theatre of Harlem has provided access to ballet for all. Comprised of an international touring company, a training school, and a celebrated arts education and community engagement program, Dance Theatre of Harlem demonstrates the power of art to transform lives.

The program will include Return (1999), the signature work of the company’s longtime resident choreographer Robert Garland, which is set to funk and soul music; Passage (2019), a ballet inspired by the 400th anniversary of the arrival of the first African slaves in Virginia, choreographed by Claudia Schreier, and performed to music by Catalyst Quartet violinist and composer Jessie Montgomery; and other works.

Compelled to make a positive impact following the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr., the legendary dancer Arthur Mitchell started a school with his teacher, Karel Shook. Mitchell’s idea was to offer children in the Harlem neighborhood, in which he grew up, the opportunity to change their futures by challenging themselves against the rigors of a classical art form. In 1971, only two years after its founding, The New York Times called Dance Theatre of Harlem “one of ballet’s most exciting undertakings.”

Celebrating its fiftieth anniversary this season, the company has an extraordinary legacy based on thrilling performances and artistic excellence predicated on providing opportunity where none had existed. Through performance, training, and education, the impact of Dance Theatre of Harlem continues to be felt across the globe.

Dançando Para Nao Dancar Teatro Rival

"REFAVELA”

Patrocinado pela, Prefeitura da Cidade do Rio de Janeiro, Secretaria Municipal de cultura, Lei Municipal de Incentivo à Cultura - Lei do ISS, o espetáculo celebra os 25 anos da companhia e escola de Balé das Comunidades.

Há 25 anos, a tradicional Escola de Balé das Comunidades, "Dançando Para Não Dançar" transforma a vida de crianças e jovens de comunidades cariocas. Além da sede, no Centro do Rio, o projeto, que já revelou dezenas de talentos e atualmente possui cerca de 150 alunos, atua em oito comunidades das zonas Norte e Sul do Rio (Rocinha, Cantagalo, Pavão-Pavãozinho, Mangueira, Chapéu-Mangueira, Babilônia, Borel e São Carlos). Para celebrar essa bem-sucedida história de inclusão através da dança, o grupo apresenta, o espetáculo "Refavela" no dia 21 de outubro de 2019, no Teatro Rival Petrobras, no Centro do Rio.

No repertório do balé contemporâneo Refavela, estão seis músicas do cantor Chico César e uma canção de Chico Buarque e Gilberto Gil. As coreografias são assinadas por Maria Gabriela Aguilar, Samara Mello, Márcia Freire, Paulo Rodrigues e Eduardo Masquette.

"É um momento de celebrar todos os alunos que foram e estão sendo encaminhados pelo projeto, de todas as formas possíveis, seja indo para fora do Brasil, ou permanecendo aqui e inspirando os outros alunos, como professores ou se formando e caminhando em outra profissão”, comenta a carioca Thereza Aguilar, de 55 anos, e coordenadora do Dançando Para Não Dançar, criado no Pavão-Pavãozinho e no Cantagalo, em 1994. “A ideia veio pela necessidade de mudar algo através da arte, que sempre foi inacessível para esse público. Por exemplo, uma sapatilha de ponta realmente custa muito caro (na média de R$ 150, 200 reais) e essas meninas usam uma por mês. A filosofia é fazer com que crianças de diferentes classes sociais tenham sonhos e se se sintam prontas para realizá-los.

Num contraponto ao verdadeiro cenário de guerra vivido pelos próprios alunos e suas famílias nos comunidades, "Refavela" mostra a visão romântica do morro e sua realidade, tudo tendo como pano de fundo uma história de amor, que vê na vida nas favelas elementos da mitologia da Grécia Antiga, com o sagrado e o profano amalgamados em habitações clandestinas.

“Diariamente, meus alunos enfrentam problemas. Da criança, ter que faltar aula porque está tendo operação, tiroteio. Isso é muito ruim pra gente, muito difícil. E, ao chegar na sala de aula, também demora para fechar a porta e esquecer do que está acontecendo lá fora, sendo que muitas têm amigos, parentes dela lá fora sujeitos a ganhar uma bala perdida”, explica Thereza, que nunca “perdeu” nenhum aluno para o tráfico, mas sim teve “recuperar” o pai de bailarina.

Além de batalhar para manter suas crianças frequentado as unidades de dança espalhadas pelas comunidades cariocas, Thereza enfrenta resistências das famílias para verem a dança como uma atividade possível e com potencial de crescimento para crianças e jovens do sexo masculino.

“Para a menino sempre tem resistência, mas pra menina, não. Todas elas querem fazer balé, ficam me procurando. Tenho pouquíssimos meninos matriculados, a resistência é imensa, é muito conservadorismo. O Romulo Mello, que vai dançar o balé “Refavela” tinha deixado o grupo para ser auxiliar de pedreiro. E hoje, ele está voltando para o Dançando, tem menos de um mês, porque ele viu que aquele caminho não era o dele. Mas acho que o preconceito vem principalmente da elite. A elite também tem que ser reeducada pela arte.

Exemplos deste trabalho bem feito de revelar talentos não faltam. Há ex-integrantes do projeto que hoje atuam em companhias importantes pelo mundo e fizeram da dança profissão. Inclusive, o Dançando para Não Dançar conta nesta apresentação com a participação da Primeira Bailarina do ballet de Harlem, Ingrid Silva, que iniciou e foi para Nova York, através do apoio do Dançando.

“Nós normalmente não contratamos professoras. O que temos são ex-alunas que retornam ao Brasil e voltam pra dar aula aqui”, comenta Thereza.

Parcerias - O projeto Dançando Para Não Dançar é patrocinado pela Prefeitura da Cidade do Rio de Janeiro e Secretaria Municipal de Cultura, por meio da Lei Municipal de Incentivo à Cultura - Lei do ISS. Também conta com apoio de Governo do Estado do Rio de Janeiro, Vídeo Filme, Casa do Biscoito e do curso de inglês Brasas.

Through performances by our internationally acclaimed Company, training in our world-class school, and participation in our multi-faceted arts education program, Dance Theatre of Harlem has made a difference in the world for 50 years.

Through these varied artistic interactions, our ambassadors have helped to build character and have provided valuable life skills to countless people in New York City, across the country and around the world.

Then, the company will present Dancing on the Front Porch of Heaven, choreographed by Ulysses Dove for the Royal Swedish Ballet in 1993.

Dance Theatre Of Harlem,Boone, NC

Dance Theatre of Harlem (DTH) was co-founded in 1969 by then-New York City Ballet’s first African-American principal dancer, Arthur Mitchell, and his colleague and acclaimed ballet instructor, Karel Shook. Moved to action by the assassination of civil rights leader Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., they sought to establish a center for excellence in classical dance instruction for the young people in Mitchell’s childhood neighborhood of Harlem. From these modest beginnings, Dance Theatre of Harlem rapidly grew to become a national and international cultural ambassador for American dance.

Dance Theatre of Harlem's unique legacy is three-fold. As the first permanent black ballet company in America, the organization has been distinguished by its artistic excellence, innovation, and history of having broadened and enriched the aesthetic parameters of the classical dance field within the United States. Over its 50-year history, DTH has performed in 250 cities in North America, in 44 states, and in 41 countries on 6 continents, inspiring diverse audiences with its vitality and expressive power. It has not only brought its fusion of ballet, modern and African-American dance to every corner of the United States, from local schools to The White House, it has carried the best of American culture to the rest of the world. In 1992, DTH marked the end of the U.S. boycott of South Africa and the fall of apartheid with its “Dancing Through Barriers” tour, during which Nelson Mandela declared, “this is one of the most delightful evenings I have enjoyed. I have forgotten all the troubles I have had in my life.” In 1999, in recognition of this commendable, multi-faceted legacy, Dance Heritage Coalition (DHC) and the Library of Congress elected Dance Theatre of Harlem to the list of “America’s 100 Irreplaceable Dance Treasures.”

This performance is funded in part by a grant from South Arts in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts.

More About Dance Theatre of Harlem

For 50 years, Dance Theatre of Harlem has been dedicated to transforming lives through the power of its art and its vision of inclusion and access to all. Founded in 1969 by the legendary Arthur Mitchell and his former teacher, the late Karel Shook, DTH is a globally-acclaimed dance institution that has occupied a distinguished place in New York City’s cultural landscape and at the forefront of American artistic achievement.

Located on a block officially named “Dance Theatre of Harlem Way” in testament to its enduring legacy, DTH now comprises a professional touring company, a school, and a broad range of community programs. Under the leadership of Virginia Johnson, a former prima ballerina with the company who was appointed Artistic Director in 2010, the DTH mission has been revitalized to:

  • Present a Company of African American and racially diverse artists who perform the most demanding repertory at the highest level of quality;

  • Maintain a world-class school that trains young people in classical ballet and allied arts; and

  • Provide arts education, community outreach, and positive role models for all.

The company is a racially diverse, 16-member professional dance ensemble that tours across national and international stages. The DTH Company has performed in 41 countries on six continents, in 44 states, and more than 250 cities across North America. Last year alone, the company performed for nearly 60,000 audience members across the U.S. and reached more than 6,000 during its home season at New York City Center.

Focused on a future that is characterized by expansion and engagement, the company brings together artists from various dance styles and disciplines (e.g. music, fashion) to create new works that influence and enhance the ballet art form. Committed to cultivating a community for dancers, choreographers, and other artists, the DTH company also serves as a pipeline for talent and an ambassador for connection on a local, national, and global level.

The DTH School provides classical ballet and dance training to children and youth from ages three to 18. Cultivating an expectation and spirit of excellence, the School invests in providing high-quality training while ensuring that students of diverse backgrounds feel inspired and supported. Within the walls of DTH, students can feel physically and emotionally safe and are encouraged to explore their greatest potential as artists.

Like the school and company, DTH’s Community Programs address the unique experience of artists of color and provide a forum where experiences of race and culture can be studied, expressed, experienced and discussed. DTH’s community offerings include its flagship Dancing Through Barriers® arts-in-education program, master classes, a Sunday Matinee concert series, open rehearsals and work-in-progress showings that provide insights into the creative process.
