Presented by Sarasota International Dance Festival Inc and Iranian Performing Arts
At Jose Mateo Ballet Theatre (400 Harvard St. Cambridge, MA)

Sat, August 15 @ 9:00 am - 6:00 pm

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to learn a series of unique dances and enter the world of the ancient dances of Persia/Iran. Among the guest instructors are Azerbaijan's former choreographer for the state dance ensemble-Namus Zokhrabov, Iran's former director of the national ballet, and later the founder and director of the national folkloric dance ensemble, and even later, Sarasota Ballet's artistic director, Robert de Warren. We have other dance masters, musicians, and scholars, who will share their expertise with you. Dance instruction has been illegal in Iran for over 3 decades and our goal is to once again, uncover, and bring back to stage the various forms of Iranian dance. The conference will cover 4 types (3 women's and 1 men's style). The master workshops are catered toward those already experienced in performing, but it is not expected that you are familiar with any of the dance forms. You may be interested in learning new ways of moving to incorporate them into your own style, or may fall in love and join our community here in Boston (Iranian Performing Arts). Registration is available through the site. We have deep discounts for those majoring/minoring in dance. Contact me if you fall into that category.

Presented by Celebrity Series
At City Shubert Theatre (Boston 270 Tremont St. , MA)

Fri, October 16 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Sat, October 17 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Spellbound was a revelation when they made their Boston debut for the Celebrity Series in 2013. For this engagement, the company dances choreographer Mauro Astolfi’s reimagined Le Quattro Stagioni (The Four Seasons). The work is a stunning achievement that pushes past the traditional symbols associated with the passing of the seasons and dives into a visceral reconnection with the cycles of renewal in nature. Dancers explore the kaleidoscope of the seasons to segments of Antonio Vivaldi’s masterpiece juxtaposed with original music by Luca Salvadori and fragments of bird song, modal ancient melody, abstract electronic sound bites, the glass harmonica, and bass flute.

Opus is a work of stunning power, virtuosity and poetry. Fourteen acrobats and a string quartet celebrate the music of Russian composer Dmitri Shostakovich. In Opus, three of his quartets form the musical and dramatic spine of a red-hot fusion of extreme acrobatics, lyrical movement and group choreography. This is groundbreaking work of intense power; a melding of music and bodies at the highest level. “Opus is cut-glass, caviar circus. It’s black tie and ballgown circus. And it’s an astonishing thing to watch: graceful, bombastic. Profound.” —The Telegraph (UK)
