JULY 18,19 & 23-26, 2003 at 630pm

Newport's Island Moving Co. will take the stage at Flight of Steps, the Company's outdoor dance series at Fort Adams for six performances July 18 & 19 and July 23 thru 26. IMC presents a program of new works showcasing the talents of Company members and guest choreographers. All shows begin at 6:30 pm.

The Company presents two programs, both featuring Remembering the Air Along the Forgotten Path, which premiered at the Company's Joyce SoHo season in New York this spring. The ballet, to music by Rachel's, was choreographed by Scott Putman. Artistic Director Miki Ohlsen's premiere Surrender is also on each program. Set to an eclectic pairing of music by Gustav Mahler and Sarah MacLachlan, the piece features a pas de deux for Danielle Genest and Rolando Troconis. Program A, on July 18, 24 & 26th, will feature Je Ne Regrette Rien, a trio by Eva Marie Pacheco to music sung by Edith Piaf and Nostalgia, a pair of romantic duets by Alejandro Gomez, which premiered at Flight of Steps 2002. Alejandro Gomez also contributes the new Patio Andaluz, a ballet for seven dancers set to music by the Gipsy Kings, for Program B (July 19, 23 & 25th) and Eva Marie Pacheco dances Wallflower, a new solo choreographed for her by Boston choreographer Carol Somers.
