Event Details

Please join us for a very special event – the screening of “Fire and Ashes, Making the Ballet Raku,” followed by a discussion and performance by Mark Roxey and members of the Roxey Ballet Company.

Then stay for a reception in our lobby! Saturday April 27 6pm.

Mark Roxey, Director and Founder of the Roxey Ballet Company, professional dance company of Mill Ballet School, Lambertville NJ, will speak about the choreographic process and where he gets his inspiration and ideas for choreography and production design. Professional artists from the Roxey Ballet Company will present excerpts from some spring season works, including Carmina Burana, Cinderella, and We vs. C.

“Fire and Ashes” is an engaging one-hour film that goes behind the scenes with composer Shinji Eshima and San Francisco Ballet resident choreographer Yuri Possokhov as they recount their collaboration with the original cast of RAkU. It brings together a confluence of eastern and western cultures in music, literature, philosophy and dance. Raku pottery prizes spontaneity in the interaction of fire and falling ashes and this stunning documentary and performance film capture the beauty of both traditional Japanese pottery and the novel The Golden Temple, by the Japanese author Mishima.
