Susan Tenney to Premiere New Work at Florence Gould Hall, 10/29

Princeton native, choreographer Susan Tenney will present the New York premiere of Je me souviens...I remember... on Saturday, October 29, 2011 at 7:30pm at Florence Gould Hall, 55 East 59th Street (between Park and Madison), New York, NY 10021. The performance will be followed by a VIP cocktail reception. Tickets are $25-75 and are available at www.ticketmaster.com or by phone at 800-745-3000.

Ms. Tenney has assembled a company of New Jersey-based dancers, including Gary Echtermacht (Pennington), Yoshie Driscoll (Princeton), Samantha Gullace (Monroe), Alexandra Fredas (Westfield), Anya Kalishnikova (Highland Park), Naoko Cojerian (West Windsor), Kelly Meir (Princeton), Alexis Branagan (Roselle Park), Pam Pisani (Plainsboro), and Cynthia Yank (Lawrenceville), the 9 year old protagonist of the work.

Set to music by film score composer George Delerue, Je me souviens...I remember... takes the audience on a journey to the worlds of memory, childhood, family, love remembered, loss, and farewells. With a multi-generational cast of nine members ranging from 9 to 67 years of age, Je me souviens...I remember... incorporates modern and classical dance styles with the pedestrian and theatrical. This evening presents Part III of the piece in its entirety, as well as selections from Parts I and II. Excerpts from Pascale Cuenot's new documentary film In the Tracks of Georges Delerue will also be shown as part of the evening's presentation.

Georges Delerue is a French film score composer who collaborated with François Truffaut, Phillippe De Broca, Jean Luc Godard, among others. He was nominated 5 times for an Academy Award, winning the Oscar in 1979 for the Best Film Score for A Little Romance.

Susan Tenney has forged a unique fusion of interdisciplinary work combining dance, theater, and spoken text. Her repertoire, in addition, contains a great many pure dance pieces ranging from lyric to the elegiac, from pop culture to the austerely classic. Her works have been produced by Williamstown Theatre Festival, Edinburgh International Theatre Festival, Princeton Ballet Summer Intensive, Princeton University, Tanglewood, and in New York as Susan Tenney & Company. She has had five works commissioned by the Princeton-based Coalition for Peace Action, and the Arts Council of Princeton. She teaches and coaches privately, and is on faculty at Princeton Ballet School. For more information, visit www.susantenneydance.com.
