Summer Stages Dance Meet the Artist Performance Series 2009
Presented by Summer Stages Dance at Concord Academy
July 11, 2009
Nell Breyer/Alissa Cardone/Lorraine Chapman/Bronwen MacArthur The Disappearing Woman Summer Stages Dance/Baryshnikov Arts Center Residency Project 2008. The world premiere of a new media/movement collaboration that examines the disappearing woman through choreographic and media elements.
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.
