Ballet Nouveau Colorado (BNC) reunites with Paper Bird Saturday June 11th at the Arvada Center for an encore performance of Carry On. The contemporary dance is choreographed by Garrett Ammon and features multimedia from Ammon and new music from Paper Bird.
The combination of photography, contemporary dance, cinematography and collaboration with local musicians is part of BNC’s signature style and allure. BNC shared the stage with Paper Bird (Carry On), singer songwriter Jesse Manley and guest choreographers Maurya Kerr and Alex Ketley (Rarities and Oddities) and visual artists Laura Merage, Mark Sink and Mark Allen Henderson (Chasing the Sublime) .
Garrett Ammon and Dawn Fay, Associate Artistic Director, complete their fourth season directing BNC on Saturday night with the encore performance of Carry On. Garrett called on Paper Bird to compose all new material for BNC’s innovative, energetic dance production. Through the performances the dancers and band members have formed a strong bond and this materializes in an engaging show, where Paper Bird’s vocalists Esme, Genevieve & Sarah appear to be part of the choreography.
Paper Bird marks the evening celebration with the release of their album Carry On, their first live album with over sixty five minutes of new music. After Carry On at the Arvada Center Paper Bird will tour the east and west coasts for the summer.
Saturday night’s show features a new dancer, Jane Hope Rehm, to the troupe and the return of Colby Foss. The company includes David Barbour, Colby Foss, Jason Franklin, Julie King, Julia Meng, Damien Patterson, Meredith Strathmeyer, Sarah Tallman, Elizabeth Towles, Sean Watson and Jane Hope Rehm.
