We are pleased to suggest you a new opportunity to experience ALESSANDRA CORONA PERFORMING WORKS live performances: next Thursday, November 4th at 8 pm, at the Theater at St. Jeans, 150 East 76th Street.
During the evening two works will be performed: “Labyrinth” by the Artistic Director Corona will be represented, and “Breaking Through the Generational Curse” by guest choreographer Maiya Redding will also be staged.
“Labyrinth” has as its main theme the tangled relationship between two lovers, and the labyrinth that they themselves have created and without knowing what their fate is. It is a maze that they find themselves crossing to unravel the ranks and rediscover love, the only solution to go out and find each other.
The choreography is danced to the original music of Thomas Lentakis, on which Corona and Company choreographed the work.
ALESSANDRA CORONA is Italian, Sardinian, from Cagliari to be precise. After her training studies at the National Ballet Academy in Rome she moved to New York, where she danced as a prima ballerina in the Hispanic Ballet, for which she danced for 12 years. She went on tour with the international company of Fosse and also participated in the City Center Encores! produced by Richard Rodgers’ No Strings and directed by Reinking. In 2012 she founded Alessandra Corona Performing Works and resides in New York.
“Breaking Through the Generational Curse” will premiere during the evening. The choreographer Maiya Redding wants to show in her work what family dynamics intertwine among its members, who discover and know each other continuously, moment by moment, experiencing feelings of various kinds: both positive, such as love, forgiveness, mutual support; than negative, such as jealousy, regret, loneliness. The work is accompanied by the music of Philip Glass and Ravi Shankar.
MAIYA REDDING hails from Chicago, Illinois. Her training took place in Chicago at the Chicago Multicultural Dance Center, and she graduated in dance from the Chicago Academy for the Arts. She continued her studies at SUNY Purchase, graduating with honors, and in 2016 she obtained a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance. During this time she has furthered her education at the Korean National University of the Arts for one semester. In 2018 she was a guest choreographer during SUNY College’s “Spring Festival”.
