Monument: A New Dance by Adam H Weinert
Event on 2015-04-24 20:00:00
Photo Credit: Zach Gross This project began with an invitation to reconstruct and perform the early solo work of pioneering modernist choreographer Ted Shawn at the Museum of Modern Art.
As he prepares for upcoming performances at the Tate Modern Museum (May 15-17), Weinert wants to open up this process to a wider range of interpreters and explore the reconstruction as a mode of creating new work. This program will include historic choreography as well as creative re-imaginings of these events by the choreographer and others – effectively transfiguring the site into a living archive, investigating ideas of mediation, memory and space. Collaborators: Choreographer Adam Weinert; Composer, Chris Garneau after Jess Meeker; Rehearsal Director Logan Kruger; Performers Logan Kruger, Brett Perry, Manelich Minniefee, Davon Rainey and Adam Weinert; Costume Design Marine Penvern; Stage Manager Alessandra Calabi; Repertory Advisor Norton Owen; Dramaturge Paul Scolieri; Company Manager James Zeta-Button; Public Relations Donald Borror. Special thanks for the conceptual guidance and support by Norton Owen, Paul Scolieri and Andre Lepecki as well as residency support provided by Jacob's Pillow, The Hudson Opera House, The Liceu Barcelona and Espacio Practico.back to top
