A Shared Program of Dances
May 18, 2019 - June 1, 2019

TBG's director, David Parker and principal dancer, Amber Sloan join forces for a shared evening with Christopher Caines Dance for three performances: Saturday May 18 at 8 PM, Thursday May 23 at 8 PM, and Saturday June 1 at 8 PM at the JCC Manhattan, 334 Amsterdam Avenue (at 76th Street).

Can't Sleep, Inc., and Philip Sandstrom present Mr. Caines' premiere of listen out loud / move to keep things whole, a new one-act ballet set to live music by Pauline Oliveros, Paul Kerekes, and Alison Taylor Cheeseman, and featuring advanced student dancers from New York Theatre Ballet School: together with members of The Bang Group in works by choreographers David Parker and Amber Sloan and a solo by James Waring. 

At the May 18th performance, TBG will present two works: one by James Waring and one by David Parker. By James Waring is his 12 Objects from Tender Buttons, text by Gertrude Stein read by David Parker, danced by Amber Sloan. By Parker is his group dance Running with Scissors, music by Stravinsky, played by New York Theatre Ballet's musical director, Michael Scales.

At the performances of May 23 and June 1, TBG will repeat James Waring's 12 Objects from Tender Buttons and will premiere David Parker's Assembly Required, a tap-dance realization of Steve Reich's Clapping Music for two men who play the score with their feet while their upper bodies suggest a wary relationship with intermittent glints of romance. Dancers are Jeffrey Kazin and Dylan Baker. On all performances will be the duet Taking Space, a new duet by Amber Sloan, longtime principal dancer with TBG. For this duet, danced by the choreographer and Joshua Tuason, Sloan has limited herself to twenty layered movements, performed in a variety of contexts to create intimacy, conflict, curiosity.

Says Caines: "While looking forward to my company's twentieth anniversary next year, I've been looking back too. David Parker and I got our start as choreographers on DTW's Fresh Tracks series in 1992 and have been friends ever since. I'm delighted to share the stage with him again. It's wonderful too that Phil Sandstrom, who designed lighting for us back in '92, joins us for this project."
