CONFIGURATION DANCE THEATRE has been described by Dance Magazine as "a living art gallery." The New York Times reported, "the exciting contemporary thrust to their repertory and the dancers' innate classicism was the first great pleasure." ARTVOICE said, "As their name implies, their emphasis widens the scope of dance and dramatic, a certain 'noir-ness,' they lay bare emotions, startle the senses, and make one think."
CDT's choreographic leadership and excellence under Joseph Cipolla, co-Founder and Artistic Director, and Resident Choreographer, Michael Shannon, has been called the "Dream Team" by The Buffalo News, joined in 2007 by the quintessential American Ballet Theatre star, Susan Jaffe, as Principal Guest Choreographer.
The Artists of Configuration Dance Theatre have been honored with the ARTVOICE Best Dance Company Award in 2008 and 2009. Shannon received a YAGP Outstanding Choreographers Award in 2008, and in 2006, St. Josephs Collegiate Institute, Joseph Cipolla's Alma Mater, inducted him into the Fine Arts Wall of Honor.
Cipolla and Shannon began working together as stars for Birmingham Royal Ballet (Sadler's Wells Royal Ballet) in England for Director David Bintley under the patronage of Queen Elizabeth II, the Prince of Wales, and Lady Sarah Chatto. Shannon and Jaffe were brought together as partners by Kirov and ABT legend, Elena Tchernichova, Artistic Director of the Vienna State Opera Ballet, to star with Vladimir Malakov, Katherine Healy, Kevin McKenzie, and Amanda McKerrow in her World Stars of Ballet Gala.
Ballet: BREATHLESS Pas De Deux
Company: Configuration Dance Theatre
Co-Founder and Artistic Director: Joseph Cipolla
Choreographer: Joseph Cipolla
Composer: Arvo Pärt
Dancers: Erica De La O and Raul Peinado
The Buffalo News Review - May 5, 2009:
"Configuration Dance Theatre warrants national attention. Choreographically, there were several knock-your-sox-off moments . . . BREATHLESS by Joseph Cipolla . . . whose gem was a crisp pas de deux performed skillfully by Erica De LA O and Raul Peinado."
JOSEPH CIPOLLA was born in Buffalo, New York, and trained by Maris Battaglia, Founder and Director of the American Academy of Ballet, where today, Cipolla is Associate Director, and Battaglia is on CDT's Board of Directors. In September 2009, Cipolla and Company Manager, Kolleen Fischer, co-founded the Configuration School of Ballet. (http://configurationdancetheatre.org/)
The New York Times described CIPOLLA when he was a Principal for the Dance Theatre of Harlem, how his dance "technique was crisp and stylishly deft. The Birmingham Post called his stage presence "charismatic and sexy." The Village Voice admired his acting ability. In 1986, Sir Peter Wright invited Cipolla (who had been dancing with DTH since 1979) to the legendary Sadlers Wells Royal Ballet (renamed Birmingham Royal Ballet in 1990).
CIPOLLA was a favorite with the company, audiences and choreographers for his ability to portray any role. Today, he is the touchstone by which others are compared when recreating his original roles. In 1993, in recognition of his achievements, he was nominated for an Olivier Award, the most prestigious award in British theater, equivalent to the Academy Award and Tony Award. Cipolla performed at the Olivier Awards with Catherine Batcheller in 1994 and with Marion Tate OBE in 1995. He also presented the award to William Forsythe in 1996.
CIPOLLA has danced in BBC and Royal Ballet televised productions, some which have been distributed worldwide on video, i.e., Margot Fonteyn's Magic of Dance, Hobsons Choice, The Nutcracker, Nutcracker Sweeties, and for Queen Elizabeth II at Buckingham Palace.
In 2002, CIPOLLA retired to Buffalo, his hometown, but returns to BRB for administrative and dancing roles, such as in 2007, when Ballet Dance Magazine reported the "welcome return of long time favorite, Joseph Cipolla as De Guiche in David Bintley's 'Cyrano,' where even under costume and heavy make-up, there is no mistaking his commanding presence."

The Munich international film festival is Germany's largest summer event of its kind. A popular meeting place for media professionals and film fans - with more than 200 new German and international cinema and television productions... Lights, camera action -- in Munich!
The Munich Film Festival -- German Cinema's Summer Party
The Munich Film Festival is Germany's biggest summer festival and a favourite both with audiences and the local film industry. The opening film this year was "The Class", which won the Palme d'Or in Cannes. But there was also a strong selection of German films. KINO reports on the highlights of this year's festival.Bavarian Boom -- the new wave of Heimat films
Bavarian filmmakers have always had a place of pride at the Munich Film Festival. Hometown hero Marcus H. Rosenmüller returns again this year with BAVARIAN OUTLAW -- an historic drama about a legendary 19th century Bavarian bandit. This year's retrospective was a tribute to Munich original Herbert Achternbusch, whose films take an unconventional, often sceptical look at Bavaria's culture and landscape. And in his film DIE ZWEITE FRAU, young director Hans Steinbichler presents a touching story of a Bavarian family. KINO looks at the search for Bavaria -- its people, its culture and values -- in current cinema.THE INVENTION OF CURRIED SAUSAGE -- Film of the Month
Fassbinder muse Barbara Sukowa stars in THE INVENTION OF CURRIED SAUSAGE -- adapted from the best-seller of the same name by Uwe Timm. In the final days of the second world war, Lena Brücker, now in her early 40s, falls in love with a young sailor who has deserted. She hides him in her apartment and shields him from the news of Germany's defeat. Because she knows the end of the war will mean the end of their affair. It's a role seemingly tailor-made for Sukowa and she carries the film, which, yes does also tell how Berlin's famous Currywurst, or curried sausage, was invented.Award-winning Camera work -- An interview with Tom Fährmann
KINO interviews Tom Fährmann, who was recently awarded the German Camera Prize for Best Feature Film. Fährmann was the cinematographer on Volker Schlöndorff's ULZHAN, the story of a Frenchman's journey to the steppes of Kazakhstan. Tom Fährmann tells KINO how he used images to communicate the protagonist's inner journey and he gives us a sneak peak at his latest project -- the literary adaptation POPE JOAN with director Sönke Wortmann.

Rachel Hannah Weisz (pronounced /ˈvaɪs/ "vyess"; born 7 March 1970) is an English actress and model. She gained wide public recognition after her portrayal of Evelyn "Evy" Carnahan-O'Connell in the films The Mummy and The Mummy Returns. In 2001, she starred opposite Hugh Grant in the hit About a Boy and continued to garner leading roles in Hollywood productions. Her performance in The Constant Gardener (2005) won her the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress, along with other major motion picture awards.
Having already worked for television productions, with parts in such major UK television series as Inspector Morse (1993), Weisz started her cinema career in 1995 with Chain Reaction and then appeared in Bernardo Bertolucci's Stealing Beauty. She followed this work with more English films including My Summer with Des, Swept from the Sea, The Land Girls, and Michael Winterbottom's I Want You. Although she received favourable critical recognition for her work to this point, her breakout into wide audience recognition came from a popular serio-comic horror movie The Mummy, in which she played the lead female role alongside Brendan Fraser. She followed this up with two hits, The Mummy Returns (2001), which grossed higher than the original, and About a Boy (2002) with Hugh Grant. Since then, her other film work has included Enemy at the Gates (2001), Runaway Jury (2003) and Constantine (2005).
In 2005, Weisz starred in Fernando Meirelles's The Constant Gardener, a film adaptation of a John le Carré thriller of the same title set in the slums of Kibera and Loiyangalani, Kenya. For this performance, Weisz won the 2006 Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress, the 2006 Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress and the 2006 Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role. In her home country, she was recognised as a leading role for the film according to the nomination from the BAFTA awards and winnings from the London Critics Circle Film Awards and British Independent Film Awards.
The same year, she starred in The Fountain and also provided the voice for Saphira in the fantasy film Eragon. Her subsequent films include the Wong Kar-wai-directed drama My Blueberry Nights (in which she played an "anti-Southern belle") and director Rian Johnson's The Brothers Bloom, in which she plays a wealthy American woman targeted by two con man brothers (Adrien Brody, Mark Ruffalo). She plays the lead role of Hypatia of Alexandria in the historical drama film Agora, released in October 2009.

A video version for closed circuit distribution was produced in 1971. The video was edited at TeleTape studios in New York City. This was the same company that originally shot and edited Sesame Street. The piece was edited using one of the first electronic editing systems called Editec and was archived to 2" video tape. Bill Aucoin directed the television production. Aucoin went on to discover "KISS" and became a notable rock and roll producer. He died recently of prostate cancer. The editor was Frank Herold. The finished piece was eventually transferred to film and ran as a double feature with "Fritz the Cat". This clip is the closing act with cast and technical credits. A young Bill Macy of "Maude" fame is in the cast.
