Summer Stages Dance Meet the Artist Performance Series 2009
July 16, 2009
Chris Elam/Misnomer Dance Theater Being Together Summer Stages Dance/Baryshnikov Arts Center Residency Project 2007 Whether creating dance for film, the web, installations or the stage, Misnomer is daring, inventive, and unpredictable. The three dances comprising Being Together--Too Late Tulip, Rock.Paper.Flock. and Zipper--are about the nuances and complexities of human interaction, and feature original music by renowned Boston-based composer Evan Ziporyn of Bang on a Can All-Stars.
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.
