Sorry I have been out of the loop for a while. I've travelling quite a bit(nowhere exotic), but now I'm back.<P>To make my biases clear I am quite involved in Maximum Dance and what follows in general release (Azlan, move as you feel necessary)but if anyone is interested, I'll flesh it out further.<P>Maximum Dance Company Celebrates the Dance<BR>Third Program of Season February 17 – 20, 2000<P>Miami, Florida — Maximum Dance Company celebrates the new year with its third program of the 1999-2000 season. Scheduled for February 17-19 at 8 p.m. and Sunday, February 20 at 2 p.m. at the Miracle Theatre in Coral Gables. The program will feature two exciting world premieres, one Company premiere and the return of two Company favorites.<BR>Adding to the continuing wealth of new commissioned works by Maximum Dance Company will be two world premieres, one by Miami’s Paulo Manso de Sousa and the other by Paolo Mohovich, Artistic Director of Italy’s Balletto dell’ Esperia. De Sousa’s new creation titled “Ao Ar Livre”, which translates to “Out in the Open Air”, is set to Portuguese folk songs, with costumes designed by Jorge Gallardo. De Sousa says of his new choreographic effort “as we continue to move into a more technological era we are losing the connection with our folkloric roots.” His new ballet harks back to those roots. Also slated for world premiere during this series is a work by Mohovich set to the music of contemporary composer John Adams. Audiences will remember Mohovich’s delightful “Here’s Love in Your Eyes” which had its United States debut during Maximum’s opening series in September.<BR>Also on the program is the Company premiere of Yanis Pikieris’ “Frame by Frame” a witty murder mystery set to the music of Alberto Ginastera. Returning to the repertoire is David Palmer’s dramatic “Unknown Soldier which portrays the final moments of an unidentified soldier leaving for war. The ballet is set to the music of Sergei Prokofiev, which will be performed live by pianist David Williams. Rounding out the program will be the exciting pas de deux from “Le Corsaire,” featuring the much-anticipated Company debut of international award winning Japanese prima ballerina Hiroko Sakakibara. Sakakibara joins Maximum Dance Company as a permanent member.<BR>Guest dancers for this program include the return of Miami favorite Marjorie Hardwick who first danced with Maximum in June of 1997, Michael Kruzich who appeared with the Company during its successful tour of Colombia in August 1999, and James Strong in his Maximum Dance Company debut.<BR>Performances are February 17 – 19 (Thursday, Friday, and Saturday) at 8 p.m. and Sunday, February 20 at 2 p.m. All performances take place at the historic Miracle Theatre, 280 Miracle Mile, Coral Gables, Maximum Dance Company’s permanent home for the 1999-2000 season.
