MONUMENT at Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival

Created by contemporary dance artist Adam H. Weinert, MONUMENT combines beautifully revived works by legends of modern dance with original contemporary choreography. Fueled by his time as a Jacob's Pillow research fellow studying the work of Jacob's Pillow founder Ted Shawn and His Men Dancers, Weinert recreates classic dances from the early 1920s and 30s. With ingenuity, reverence, and grace, he and an ensemble of stunning dancers perform classic solos by Doris Humphrey, José Limón, and Ted Shawn, then transport audiences to a new world of contemporary choreography that is "fleeting, mysterious and wholly alive" (Gia Kourlas, The New York Times).

Wednesday, August 10 through Saturday, August 14, 8:15pm

MONUMENT at the 92nd Street Y

  • 92nd Street Y

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.  Now, as I prepare for upcoming performances at the Tate Modern Museum (May 15-17), I want 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 myself and others - effectively transfiguring the site into a living archive, investigating ideas of mediation, memory and space. 

The result of 4 years of research, this project is very meaningful to me and and your support is not only greatly appreciated, but vital for the success of this project.  A tax-deductible donation in the amount of $500 or more will qualify you as a “Monument” level supporter but donations of any size are welcome.  Click here to make a donation.

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.

Saturday, August 30, 6pm │ Free and open to the public

As part of 20 Dancers for the XX Century, a living archive project at the Museum of Modern Art, Adam H. Weinert and Logan Frances Kruger were invited to reconstruct early solo work by the pioneering choreographer Ted Shawn.  In a creative residency at the Opera House, the dancer/choreographers continue their investigation into this early branch of contemporary dance history. The residency culminates with performances of solo and duet material from the 1930’s-1960's by Ted Shawn and two of his descendants, Doris Humphrey and José Limón – some which has not seen in nearly fifty years – alongside new choreography inspired by the lineage left behind.
