Polina (Danser sa vie)

(NR) 1 Hr. 56 Min. In French with English subtitles (Art House & International, Drama)

In this thrilling coming-of-age story, a rigorously trained and talented young dancer is determined to find her voice in a cutthroat world.  Polina (played by Anastasia Shevtsova, a professional dancer who has performed with Saint Petersburg's Mariinsky Theatre) is a promising classical ballet dancer about to join the prestigious Bolshoi Ballet when she discovers contemporary dance, a revelation that throws everything into question on a profound level. Diverting from her plan, she leaves all her exacting preparation behind and moves to France to work with famous choreographer Liria Elsaj (played by French Academy Award-winner Juliette Binoche who has danced with London-based dancer/choreographer Akram Khan). But once there she is quickly forced to grapple with the realization that determination and hard work don't always lead to success.

Ottmar Liebert in Concert

Fri. Sept. 15

Doors at 6:30; show at 7:30 p.m.

German guitarist, songwriter and producer Ottmar Liebert is best known for his Spanish-influenced easy listening music. The five-time Grammy Award has received 38 Gold and Platinum certifications in the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. His debut album Nouveau Flamenco (1990) went platinum in the U.S. Liebert, who began playing guitar at age 11, eventually settled in New Mexico in the ‘80s. Today, there's a spirited new sound emanating from Santa Fe thanks to Liebert’s magical blend of contemporary groove, heart and the soul of the Spanish gypsy guitar. It's Nouveau Flamenco...a sound mastered by Ottmar Liebert.
