Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts to Welcome Krasnoyarsk National Dance Company, 2/1

November 13
12:01 PM 2013

Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts at Brooklyn College continues its 2013-14 season on Saturday, February 1, 2014 at 8pm with Krasnoyarsk National Dance Company of Siberia. Tickets are $45/$36 (orchestra/mezzanine) and can be purchased by phone at 718-951-4500 (Tues-Sat, 1pm-6pm) or online at BrooklynCenterOnline.org.

Like a Russian fairy tale come to life, this company of 55 dancers and musicians incorporates colorful folkloric costumes, thrilling choreography, and an orchestra of national folk instruments as it celebrates the rich cultural heritage of its native Siberia.

The Krasnoyarsk National Dance Company of Siberia was founded in 1960 by Mikhail Godenko, who served as Director for more than 30 years. An experienced and talented choreographer, Godenko created a repertoire of dances in collaboration with the Company's musical director, composer Vladimir Kornev, Merited Artist of Russia, whose deep knowledge of Siberian folklore and dance were key in weaving music into the fabric of the overall performance. The Company's elaborate costumes, based on traditional regional designs, were created by Yelizaveta Akselrod, Merited Worker in Art of the Tuva Republic, and Boris Knoblok, Vladimir Mamontov and Paulina Korotkova, Merited Workers in Art of Russia. The Company is currently led by Artistic Director Vladimir Moiseev.

In addition to regular performances across Russia, the Company has toured internationally to more than 60 countries, including Vietnam, Algeria, Tunisia, Australia, Japan, Vietnam, and the United States, as well as throughout both Europe and Latin America.

Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts' presentation of Krasnoyarsk National Dance Company of Siberia is made possible, in part, by the Macy's Foundation, the Mertz Gilmore Foundation, and The Harkness Foundation for Dance.
