-We just returned from Orlando where we attended the Performing Arts Exchange (PAE) 9/25-9/30/16 for the first time, with our own booth 706. We were incredibly  lucky with the weather leaving just before the hurricane, just in time to begin several new school residencies.  Before that we attended the Western Arts Alliance (WAA) 8/29/16 - 9/1/16 in Booth 215.

See the flyers to the right for details on our showcases of “Call From the Afterlife” and “Invasion”. Thank you all who came to see them and who visited our booths.

-While Louise and Kistina were flying east, Rebecca, Linnea, Liza, and Nathan were performing a showcase for us for the Children’s Creative Project in Santa Barbara where we are on the roster.


- On Sept 17 & 18 twenty two dance companies and three music events- see details on www.triartSP.com. You can also see more about our new work “A Jewish Child’s Story” where we are showing “Part 1- The Roses on my Wallpaper- A Dream”

Showcasing at WAA is Invasion, our new sci-fi work, premiered with the multimedia of Audri Phillips at LA Theater Center Oct 2&3, 2015. This piece is sci-fi, and has to do with what happens when we are invaded by another species (or metaphorically, what happens when very diverse qualities from diverse cultures come together). Who changes who? What is the result? The piece begins with 2 beings that see a carefree, almost childlike person. They interact, and all 3 are now part of the "beings". Next is a duet of love and great sadness that is passed on to the beings. Last is a passionate Tango that is sexual and violent. They all merge in the electrifying ending.

See videos from some of the festival performances of the work with the links above.

Also shown will be 2 sections from CALL FROM THE AFTERLIFE.

Commissioned by Linda J. Albertano with sound score by her and choreography by Louise Reichlin, there is a story- A poet, on turning 71, is visited by 4 apparitions who urge him to come to the next life- a Ballerina Clown who charms, Marilyn Monroe as an angel who seduces, the devil herself as a Flamenco dancer, and a Bedouin belly dancer as the grim reaper. For this showcase we present the "Ballerina Clown" and "Grim Reaper".
