Summer Stages Dance Meet the Artist Performance Series 2009
July 25, 2009
Choreographers Project Showcase Featuring new work by Germaul Barnes, and fellowship recipients A showcase of new work developed by Choreographers' Project Fellows and featuring an original piece by dancer and choreographer, and former principal of Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zance Dance Company, Germaul Barnes, performed by Summer Stages Workshop participants.
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.
