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).
