VISIONS Contemporary Ballet presents In Truth and In Light

 

The evening’s performance features Shattered Lives, a new ballet choreographed by Ranardo-Domeico Grays, Founder/Artistic Director of VISIONS Contemporary Ballet, recently commissioned by the Jamaica Center for Arts & Learning for the Making Moves Dance Festival 2021 ~ To Life. With music by Vir-Amicus, Patrick Avalon and Terence Trent D’Arby, Shattered Lives is about vulnerability, devastation and lack of control while facing unfortunate events and negative situations. The company will also perform two other heartfelt works: Still Healing, inspired by stories of people who experience pain and suffering through no fault of their own, yet they persevere, and Roots, rooted in prayer, about self-growth.

Grays, a Harlem-based African American choreographer and brain cancer survivor whose inspirational work centers around humanity and life, says it is exciting that the company is back on stage to uplift, celebrate diversity, and promote healing. Rooted in African American heritage with multicultural influences, the company can be enjoyed by audiences of all ages, abilities, communities and backgrounds.

In Truth and In Light is made possible in part with public funds from Creative Engagement, supported by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and administered by LMCC.

ABOUT THE SHOW
Nut/Cracked–The Bang Group’s beloved, witty response to The Nutcracker–has delighted audiences for nearly two decades. Nut/Cracked takes its inspiration from all corners of the dance canon from tap riffs to en pointe ballet by way of bubble wrap, disco, and Chinese take-out noodles.

“Not only immensely entertaining but also intensely musical and witty, melding tap, disco, ballet and contemporary dance….Combines fantasy and silliness to marvelous effect.”
—Roslyn Sulcas, New York Times

“You never know what’ll happen next, but when it’s over you find…a passionate declaration of naivete in the best sense: innocence regained.”
— Alastair Macaulay, New York Times
