Nevada Ballet Theatre & Cirque du Soleil Present an Exciting and Diverse Collaboration of Works for the 7th Annual A Choreographers’ Showcase

nbtCIRQUE DU SOLEIL


NEVADA BALLET THEATRE & CIRQUE DU SOLEIL PRESENT AN EXCITING AND DIVERSE COLLABORATION OF WORKS FOR THE 7TH ANNUAL A CHOREOGRAPHERS’ SHOWCASE

 

Featuring Artists from Nevada Ballet Theatre (NBT), Michael Jackson ONE, Mystère, The Beatles LOVE, KÀ and Zumanity with special appearances by students from NBT’s Education & Outreach Program, Future Dance

 

TWO WEEKENDS ONLY: SUNDAY, OCTOBER 26 & SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 2 AT 1 PM MYSTÈRE THEATRE, TREASURE ISLAND HOTEL & CASINO

Nevada Ballet Theatre (NBT) and Cirque du Soleil® once again join forces to present the highly creative and collaborative 7th annual A Choreographers’ Showcase,  featuring over 60 local artists from NBT and Cirque du Soleil, performing 11 original works on Sunday, October 26 at 1 pm and Sunday, November 2  at 1 pm at the Mystère Theatre at Treasure Island Hotel & Casino, 3300 South Las Vegas Blvd. Tickets may be purchased for $25 and $45 by calling the Mystère Theatre Box Office at (702) 894-7722 or via online at www.nevadaballet.org.

 

Designed as a project to stimulate and encourage artistic growth, A Choreographers’ Showcase provides emerging artists from both NBT and Cirque du Soleil the necessary resources and support to conceptualize, develop, create and execute an originally-choreographed work from beginning to end. “The importance of this project brings something special to the artists from both organizations as well as local audiences; and that is the gift of the creative process,” said NBT Artistic Director and Co-Creative Director for A Choreographers’ Showcase, James Canfield. “Opportunities for developing artists are becoming scarce due to the lack of resources and time available. Projects such as A Choreographers’ Showcase allow artists to explore new directions; and when the seeds are planted early enough, artists can continue to develop their craft over a longer period of time.”

 

Over the past seven years, A Choreographers’ Showcase has cultivated an appreciative local audience and become a media favorite. An organic and ever-evolving endeavor, each year possesses its own unique flavor, energy and area of focus. “For this year’s showcase, we encouraged the artists to incorporate more of an acrobatic element into their works,” said Katy Tate, from Cirque du Soleil and Co-Creative Director for A Choreographer’s Showcase. “Their challenge as choreographers is to forgo the use of an apparatus, utilizing movements which celebrate the abilities of the physical body without the technical support of a physical object.”

 

Each artist is responsible for all of the artistic elements of their piece – from choreography, to costumes, to lighting and sound. “The Showcase encourages mentorship and allows artists to step outside of their comfort zone,” said Tate. “Because performers in both organizations must materialize their creative visions and possibly perform new styles they haven’t yet explored, they experience tremendous professional growth.”

 

Furthering the mission of the project, students of low income means will not only receive the opportunity to witness this one-of-a-kind collaboration as part of an exciting school matinee on Friday, October 24, but Scholars from NBT’s Future Dance program will have a presence throughout the show  – aiding in the transition of works as well as the finale. Since its inception, thousands of local students have witnessed this one-of-a-kind collaboration bringing together artists from diverse backgrounds and dance styles. Proceeds from each $45 ticket sold to the October 26 and November 2 public performances enable NBT and Cirque du Soleil to present this special school time matinee.

 

As a benefit for NBT, a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization, proceeds generated from A Choreographers’ Showcase provide necessary support for the company’s main stage productions at The Smith Center for the Performing Arts, its affiliated Academy in Summerlin and the many initiatives of Future Dance, its Education and Outreach program, which successfully reached over 10,000 underserved students during the 2013-2014 Season.

 

TICKETS ON SALE NOW  

Ticket prices for A Choreographers’ Showcase  may be purchased for $25 and $45 by calling the Mystère Theatre Box Office at (702) 894-7722 or online at www.nevadaballet.org. Purchasing a premium $45 ticket will provide guests with preferred seating and the opportunity to support NBT’s Education & Outreach Program, Future Dance.

 

ABOUT A CHOREOGRAPHERS’ SHOWCASE

A Choreographers’ Showcase began as a premiere collaboration between Nevada Ballet Theatre and Cirque du Soleil in 2006 when the two companies discovered a way to collaborate that would benefit Las Vegas’ local ballet company and allow the world-renowned troupe to add an action-based element to their support of the arts. On Sunday, December 2, 2007, A Choreographers’ Showcase debuted at Treasure Island Hotel & Casino on the famous Las Vegas strip. Now in its seventh year, this critically-acclaimed production has created an avenue of growth for local artists while providing Las Vegas with a dynamic and completely organic dance experience. In addition, the showcase has raised Nevada Ballet Theatre’s visibility on the Las Vegas strip while simultaneously enabling Cirque du Soleil to further root itself in the local cultural community. Over the last few years, the showcase has garnered rave reviews and sold-out houses in addition to significant media attention including the LA Times and LIFE Magazine.

Create New Memories on Grandparent’s Day — Sunday, Sept. 8 at MGM Resorts

Create New Memories on Grandparent’s Day— Sunday, Sept. 8

In 1978, President Jimmy Carter proclaimed the first Sunday after Labor Day National Grandparent’s Day and grandchildren have been spoiling their loved ones ever since. Here are just a few relaxing and fun ways to celebrate this year at MGM Resorts Sunday, Sept. 8.

  • Kickoff Grandparent’s Day at Bellagio and enjoy Fountains Brunch at Jasmine. In classic Bellagio style, the freshest ingredients and innovative dishes are combined with a stellar view of the world famous Fountains of Bellagio to create a one-of-a-kind dining experience. Sample blueberry-stuffed white-chocolate brioche French toast served with Vermont maple syrup or explore international flavors with the crystal prawn and spinach dim sum. After Brunch, stroll through Bellagio’s Conservatory & Botanical Gardens and take advantage of the summer display’s final day before fall arrives. The summer display highlights the season with oversized sunflowers, chirping birds, colorful kites and a tranquil pond; plenty of opportunity for a precious Grandparent’s Day photo.

  • After a jam-packed morning, schedule time for grandpa and grandma to relax during the afternoon at BATHHOUSE Spa at THEhotel at Mandalay Bay. Choose THEmassage, a custom massage created for each guest’s individual needs. After a consultation with the therapist, a blend of massage techniques from Swedish, deep tissue (or a little of both) come together during this 25, 50 or 80 minute treatment. To create an unmatched experience, treat the grandparents to enhancements such as aromatherapy, hot stone infusion or detoxifying acupoint; a jade-infused massage gel used on acupressure points along the spine to help the body increase metabolism, rebalance internal organ systems and rid the body of toxins.

An ideal finale, top the day off by celebrating the spirit of the 1960s at The Mirage The Beatles LOVE by Cirque du Soleil  brings John, Paul, George and Ringo’s spirits alive in a physical interpretation of the iconic band’s musical legacy.
