Summer Stages Dance Meet the Artist Performance Series 2009
July 9, 2009
Armitage Gone! Dance Ligeti Essays and The Watteau Duets Two major works of edgy classicism, one choreographed to music by the great Hungarian composer Gy"rgy Ligeti, and the other set to music by David Linton performed live by the explosive keyboard-and-drum duo TALIBAM!
Meet the Artists Performances give audiences the chance to meet today's leading contemporary choreographers in an intimate and informal setting. Each evening includes a pre-performance work-in-progress--sometimes held outside on the lawn, weather permitting--plus a performance of works by Summer Stages' visiting faculty members or resident choreographers, followed by a Q&A with the artists.
Performances are held either in Concord Academy's fully air-conditioned 400-seat Performing Arts Center or the school's 2,500 square foot, state-of-the art dance studio, designed by renowned architect Graham Gund. On Thursday evenings, audience members may also attend a pre-performance open rehearsal in the dance studio.
