Established in 2011 under the directorship of French-American choreographer Carole Alexis, Ballet des Amériques, as its name implies, inserts itself into the French cultural heritage of the Americas. Composed of classically trained dancers of diverse backgrounds, the young company has already danced the choreography of Carole Alexis in over 50 public performances beginning with its debut at the Festival de Fort-de-France in Martinique in 2011. As the resident dance company of the Tarrytown Music Hall, Ballet des Amériques is building on the success of its Evenings of Dance series to develop a regional dance audience in Westchester and neighboring counties. With its local roots and international orientation, the company is poised to grow its audiences beyond dance connoisseurs to reach those who have never been exposed to this art and especially young people, in conscious fulfillment of the educational function of dance in the spirit of Maurice Béjart.

By Chuck Mee
Directed by Gian-Murray Gianino
Euripides’ play takes place after the Trojan War; in Mee’s adaptation, set in our contemporary world, veterans return from the Trojan War to find that the disorder and nightmare of war has come home with them. In Mee’s signature collage style, this big, civic-minded work looks at the impossibility of homecoming, and a homeland in ruins.
