CUNY Dance Initiative and John Jay College, in collaboration with Dusan Týnek Dance Theatre, present the World Premiere of Anna at the Gerald Lynch Theater at John Jay College, 524 W. 59th Street, NYC on February 16 & 17, 2018 at 7:30pm. Tickets are $30 ($20 for students and seniors) and are available at HERE.


Anna is an evening-length contemporary dance-theater performance by choreographer Dusan Týnek inspired by Tolstoy's classic Russian novel, Anna Karenina. An exploration of love and infidelity within the structures of stifling social mores, Anna side steps a conventional re-telling of the novel, focusing instead on the essence of its characters and their situations.


"Structurally, dealing with such a well­-known work of literature gives me freedom to leave out parts of the story without losing the general narrative," said Dusan Týnek. "Each segment will oscillate between abstraction and literal representation as a way of exploring and being in conversation…

MESSAGE TO PEREZ



Perez, I met you right at the time you started to get fame at Sirius radio. We did many shows together. You were fun, we all went out for drinks and you seemed very happy, even know you were not famous yet, even know you could not pay your rent, you were happy. 

This business is a killer. Everyone takes and takes and you never can count of people to just "do the right thing".  After 30 years of photographing these celebrities, 30 years of doing television shows, I just got burnt out by being burned by all these people in the business and many so called friends.

Just shows you, money and famed can n…
