This is Ananka’s 12th happy year performing at the Rogue Festival. Although the Ananka Dance Co. performs in classical ethnic and cabaret belly dance, during the Rogue …the favorite is “Fantasy Spirit”…dancing with beautiful belly dance techniques and capturing moments in a variety of themes in a variety of ways. This year, we have the creative challenge in bringing, in dance, ‘Moments in Myths and Mythology.’

The Great Green At Rogue 2014

IN THE February 20 ISSUE

by Joanna Rotkin



The Great Green is a thorny narrative of social codes, false pretenses, quirks and incongruities. Amid the uproar of vexing topographies, this solo work unearths, disputes, and relishes in a skewed conversation of gluttony and greed. By investigating the demarcation of ownership through landscape and power, The Great Green is a world that traverses between absurd stand-up comedy, starving despair, and choreographic upheaval. Through rich imagery, dialogue, repetition, and fourth wall break down, The Great Green codifies personal, familial, and cultural gesture using an illogical and bizarre theatrical arc to convey the vast disconnect between the grandiose power of greed and ownership with everyday existence in our consumer driven culture.

This past summer, the small film Lex had its premiere at The Regency Theaters in Pasadena. It went on to win the Best Short Film at the Action on Film International Film Festival. The film was co-written by Stefanie Halstead, former Dinuba Raisin Queen and current owner of Dance Dolls Dance School, with locations in both Kingsburg and Dinuba.

Hello, Dolly! opened at CenterStage Clovis Community Theatre this past weekend to large, enthusiastic crowds after a tremendous race against time the last week before opening, caused by the loss of their original Dolly. Clytee Ramsey came out of retirement to step in and fill the void as Dolly.

This week marked the middle of the season for Dancing with the Stars, and to celebrate they treat us with American Theme week. This theme is definitely my least favorite so far this season—especially when compared to last week’s awesome Classical Music Night. Yes, I am a proud American, but I just thought Monday night’s theme trotted out the most overused of American clichés and stereotypes possible. There were more flag and military themed costumes trimmed with rhinestones and sequins than I could have conceived possible. God bless America…?

Kirstie Alley takes a tumble on the dance floor and Ralph Macchio tumbles from the top of the leader board on Story Night on Dancing with the Stars. The celebrities pick tunes that tell a “deeply personal tale” and the competition becomes as much for the sympathy vote as it does for the dancing. “It promises to be an emotional night,” show host Tom Bergeron says, gleefully.

Heather is going to be sharing with KRL readers each week an overview of each Dancing with the Stars episode and her thoughts! Check back each Wednesday night.

This week’s round of Dancing With the Stars was ‘redemption night’. Producers were so upended last fall when David Hasselhoff was sent packing the first week, all of this season’s celebs got a second chance to impress judges and viewers Monday night, before one of them gets the hook on Tuesday.

With the Rogue Festival now underway, I found myself curious how a group goes about getting ready for Rogue. Anthony Taylor, who is directing one of the shows for the Artists’ Repertory Theatre Company this year, and Jennifer Meckel with Ananka Dance Company, shared with KRL a bit of the process.

What’s that? You say you’ve never been to the Rogue Festival in Fresno before? Hmmmm. . . I think it is about time you did. Don’t let a little thing like the unfamiliar keep you from the adventure in art that is “Da Rogue”. But, like any other cultural event that has evolved (this is its 10th year), it has its own quirks, etiquette and, of course, buzzwords.
