The company was featured at the 2012 Mawazine festival in Morocco, performing for the Queen of Morocco. Bellydance Evolution’s Alice in Wonderland is a family-friendly production taking the audience on a spectacular journey that will excite both mainstream audiences and dance enthusiasts with spinning mushrooms, dancing caterpillars and a charisma acrobatic rabbit, all set to an original and theatrical soundtrack.

Presented by Celebrity Series of Boston
At Citi Shubert Theater (270 Tremont Street Boston, MA)

Sat, January 24 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Sun, January 25 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

This American Life host Ira Glass has been working with Monica Bill Barnes & Company to invent a show that combines two art forms that, as Glass puts it, “have no business being together – dance and radio.” One is all words and no visuals. One is all visuals and no words. The result is a funny, lively, and very talky evening of dance and stories that brought down the house in its first test run at Carnegie Hall. The Dance Series is sponsored by the Little Family Foundation and the John S. and Cynthia Reed Foundation.

Featuring Philip Glass : Presented by FirstWorks
At The Vets (1 Avenue of the Arts Providence, Rhode Island)

Wed, February 25 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

Experience an intimate evening with one of the world’s most important living composers, Philip Glass.

Fain is one of the few soloists for whom Glass has composed solo material; when asked why Glass answered: "because he’s that good". Pairing two incredible artists at two very different points in their careers, this unique presentation highlights their enormous generosity of spirit and features compositions spanning Glass' career, including works created specifically for Fain. The hauntingly beautiful music of Philip Glass always transports listeners to a state of musical bliss.
