Brain cancer survivor inspires others through his choreography
[New York, NY] Three-year brain cancer survivor, choreographer Ranardo-Domeico Grays, will be presenting his company, VISIONS Contemporary Ballet, in its 10-year anniversary performance, “Healing Works,” at Dixon Place, 161A Chrystie St., New York, NY, 10002, on December 7th at 7:30pm.
Ranardo-Domeico Grays, Founder/Artistic Director of VISIONS Contemporary Ballet and an alumnus of The Juilliard School, now a three-year brain cancer survivor, is creatively flourishing and has even more of a story to share through his work! Being presented is “Through the Valley,” a new ballet inspired by his journey. “Through the Valley” explores facing obstacles in one’s fight for health and life, to which many can relate. Also being performed are two other of his inspirational ballet works, “Beautiful Madness” and “Roots.” Rebekah Kennedy, returning founding company member, will be making a special guest appearance performing “Beautiful Madness.” This promises to be a special and memorable evening celebrating VISIONS Contemporary Ballet’s ten years and Ranardo’s triumphant return to creating healing, uplifting ballet works.
VISIONS will also be performing “Through the Valley” at Dixon Place in the Fast Forward series curated by Sangeeta Yesley on November 21st at 7:30pm.
The company was presented in New York City this year at the Harlem Arts Festival and the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event in Central Park.
VISIONS Contemporary Ballet is an ethnically diverse company committed to presenting cross-cultural contemporary ballet works. Ranardo’s choreography transcends any one culture and relays universal messages of the human experience.
The Dixon Place Lounge is open before and after the show, and you can bring your drink in the theater! Bar proceeds directly support DP’s artists and mission.
