Summer Stages Dance Meet the Artist Performance Series 2009
July 23, 2009
David Parker & The Bang Group A 10th Anniversary Celebration at Summer Stages Dance Parker & The Bang Group will offer a rollicking cabaret-tinged show with singing, dancing, highlights from the last ten years of shows and some on-the-spot choreography bringing audiences into the creative process itself.
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.
