Annabel Movement Ensemble’s Tumultuous is a glimpse into the archetypes of the twisted and aristocratic world of Leo Tolstoy’s novel,__ ___Anna Karenina_.  Fusing movement and music on a foundation of Tolstoy’s poetic language, Tumultuous is a ticket for the darkest train ride of love, nostalgia, memory and liberation.

Deena Selenow, Paul Fraser and Genevieve Gearhart’s Katastrofi is a musical cliff’s note to Sophocles’ gut-wrenching tragedy The Women of Trachis, sung through the lens of deconstructed musical themes inspired by Justin Timberlake’s “Cry Me a River.” A merging of ancient and modern pop, Katastrofi puts two classics side by side in a dementedly playful retelling of Sophocles’ cautionary story of love, betrayal and good intentions gone awry. **

**Inspired by the story of Anne Frank and the strength of those hiding with her in the Annex, Winter Dance Theater’s The Day I Met Anne Frank takes the audience on a compassionate journey of dance, theater and song.
