What happens when an uneducated house wife and mother of two reaches the end of
her rope with a bad marriage and her own personal shortcomings? She makes concrete
decisions to change her life for the better.
Julie is near a breaking point when she confesses to her best friend Claire that
she is going to night school because she’s tired of “being stupid.” This brave
first step launches her into throwing out her abusive husband, and Claire to
follow suit and move in. As rocky days turn into promising futures, Julie admits
to Claire that she has feelings beyond friendship for her. This opens another
crate of challenges to which Julie proves that she is more than capable of
handling. A mentoring night school teacher keeps her on the right path, and
there is little stopping her from her ultimate goal—fully realizing herself as a
woman, a mother, and a total human being.

to create their own expression with statements, words, images, candles, photos,

4. The Imperial Banquet - Bass Museum of Art
Posted by: "William" timoria63@yahoo.com timoria63
Date: Tue Aug 29, 2006 7:52 am (PDT)

The Imperial Banquet
Saturday, November 4, 2006
Seven to Ten O'clock in the Evening

The Bass Museum of Art and the Princess Thi-Nga Foundation will
present The Imperial Banquet on November 04, 2006; a lavish prelude
to the forthcoming exhibition of the private jade collection of Her
Imperial Highness Princess Thi-Nga of Vietnam.

The exhibition of 120 magnificent jade sculptures from the 19th and
early 20th centuries will open in May 2007 and is dedicated to the
memory of the Princess' great-great-great Grandfather, His Imperial
Majesty Emperor Gia Long, founder of Vietnam.

This elegant black-tie cocktail party and banquet is limited to one
hundred patrons of the arts. The reception will feature an exclusive
preview of a select group of rare and magnificent jade sculptures
from the collection of Her Imperial Highness Princess Thi- Nga. This
collection has never been exhibited publicly.

The banquet's exquisite décor, featuring orchids and lotus flowers
flown in from Asia just for this occasion, will evoke a lush and
magnificent Asian ambiance. The New World Symphony will
perform "East meets West" repertoire, music composed during the same
historical period as the creation of the jade sculptures, to
celebrate the parallels between diverse civilizations and cultures.
According to Imperial tradition, classical Asian musicians and
dancers will perform throughout the evening for the guests.

The banquet will generate philanthropic support that will go toward
furthering the Bass Museum's mission to collect, preserve, exhibit,
and interpret the visual arts for the residents and visitors of the
city, the county, and the region as well as an international
community of scholars and art connoisseurs. 10% of the proceeds will
be contributed to UNESCO toward the restoration of The Imperial City
of Hue, Vietnam - a Unesco World Heritage Monument, established by
the Princess' great-great- great grandfather, H.I.M. Emperor Gia
Long.

The Imperial Banquet is generously sponsored by The Princess Thi-Nga
Foundation and the Princess' organization Imperial Holdings
International.

7. "Meet the Dancers" launches Momentum Dance Company 25th Season
Posted by: "William" timoria63@yahoo.com timoria63
Date: Tue Aug 29, 2006 7:56 am (PDT)


Momentum Launches 25TH Anniversary Season with Meet the Dancers

Momentum Dance Company kicks off its 25th Anniversary season with Meet the
Dancers, a lecture, performance and birthday party on Friday, September 15 at 7:30
PM at the Manuel Artime Theater, 900 SW First Street in Miami. All tickets are $5
for the informal season kickoff with the performance of classic Momentum favorites
such as Water Study, Highway, The Thrill, and Cheers Darling, as well as the
introduction of company dancers and birthday party for Momentum founder and
Artistic Director Delma Iles. For information call 305-858-7002. Online ticketing
at http://www.momentumdance.com
The 2006-2007 Silver Anniversary season celebrations will include
concert performances at the Colony Theater in December, children's
concerts in Coral Gables, Hialeah, and other locations, The Next
Generation Concert featuring new works by Momentum's dancers, and the
third annual Miami Beach Dance Festival.
Meet the Dancers is a great way to get to know the company and to
learn about a dancer's life, says Iles. The program will demonstrate
the warmup and class exercises advanced dancers must do every day; as
well as explain the rehearsal process, how a dance evolves as the
dancers learn and polish it. Each dancer will introduce him/herself
and tell a little about personal background. The program will also
include excerpts from the repertory Momentum will be performing this
year including Doris Humphrey's 1928 classic Water Study, The Thrill -
a steamy jazz solo from Momentum's first season, Cheers, Darling - a
soulful solo by senior dancer Odman Felix, and an excerpt from Iles'
Highway - a tribute to the great American road trip. In addition,
veteran soloist Barbie Freeman and newcomer Jesse Sani will show an
excerpt from Jose Limon's 1950 classic The Exiles. Momentum recently
acquired this work through an American Masterworks grant from the
National Endowment
for the Arts. Jennifer Scanlon, considered to be one of the most important modern
dancers of her generation, was in Miami August 12-21 to teach the work.
After the performance, audience members are invited to join the
dancers for birthday cake. The program is not only a celebration of
Momentum's 25th, but also the birthday of Artistic Director Delma
Iles.
Momentum, at 25, is one of the oldest modern dance companies in the
U.S.; and the oldest modern dance company in continuous operation in
Florida. Few modern companies last more than a few years and Momentum
is proud of its history. Momentum offers over 60 performances and
programs annually, most in South Florida. The company has annually
toured Florida under the auspices of the Florida Department of State's
Florida Touring Program since 1988. Momentum has also performed
internationally in Mexico and the Bahamas. This season the company
will perform in Oaxaca, Mexico.
The Exiles is Limon's dance recreation of
the biblical story of Adam and Eve's
expulsion from the Garden of Eden. It is in
three sections depicting the expulsion, the
memory of paradise, and the long road ahead
into exile. Jose Limon is one of the most
important figures in American dance history.
He studied with Doris Humphrey and Charles
Weidman and danced with their company
1930-1940. He toured with May O'Donnell's
company and appeared in recitals with B.
Sekler and Nanette Charisse. He founded his
own Jose Limon American Dance Company in
1947 and it was immediately recognized as
one of the most outstanding modern dance
troupes. Doris Humphrey was the Artistic
Director and Ruth Currier, Pauline Koner,
Betty Jones and Lucas Hoving were the
leading dancers. His most important works
include The Moor's Pavane, La Malinche, The
Exiles, The Traitor, There is a Time,
Emperor Jones, Missa Brevis, and Odysseus.
He taught at the Julliard
School and various colleges and contributed to the book The Modern Dance. His
company continues to perform from its New York City base. Historic
programming is desperately needed in the field of modern dance, explains Iles. The
worlds of ballet, Spanish dance, African dance and several other traditional dance
forms have done an exceptional job of not only preserving their history, but also
of regularly performing important historic and classic works. Who has not heard of
Swan Lake and The Nutcracker as well as a host of other ballets? Modern dance, with
its emphasis on creativity and new work has not done as good a job showing its
historic work to both students and audiences. Many modern dance students have never
seen any of the older works that formed the basis for the very techniques they are
studying. Due to this omission, audiences also have no context or point of
reference from which to view and evaluate modern dance. And yet the innovators of
our art
form such as Isadora Duncan, Martha Graham, Doris Humphrey, Jose Limon and Anna
Sokolow, to name only a few, changed American dance forever, affecting the worlds
of ballet, Broadway, film, and jazz. Audiences need a chance to get to know these
seminal works that contributed to redefining the art form. This will ad to their
overall enjoyment and appreciation of modern dance as well as provide a framework
from which to understand even the most cutting-edge contemporary works.
In addition, continues Iles, I believe that The Exiles will have a
very special resonance in the South Florida community where we have so
many exiles from various countries living among us. The emotions of
loss and regret, as well as hope for the future are classic themes
that are essential to the meaning of this dance work. These are the
very qualities that elevate a work of art to the status of classic.
