From May 1st to 3rd, 2009, choreographers Gianni DiMarco and Kelley Donovan, composers Philip Glass and Mark Warhol and many splendid dancers, musicians, and designers collaborated on an evening of contemporary music and dance performance, presented by Ensemble Warhol, Contrapose Dance, and Kelley Donovan & Dancers. The venue was Green Street Studios, a dance space in Central Square, Cambridge MA.

Opening the program was Within and Between, a new dance work about transformation and impermanence created by choreographer Kelley Donovan for her dancers and featuring pianist Theodore Bale playing the music of Philip Glass.

This was followed by Scènes de ballet, a dance work for four dancers, flute, and harp by Mark Warhol. This production of Scenes de ballet was a collaboration between Contrapose Dance, Courtney Peix, artistic director, and Ensemble Warhol, a music group that specializes in the performance of contemporary music, featuring the work of Venezuelan choreographer Gianni Di Marco, Rockport artist Heidi Zander, and costumer Susan Paino.
