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.
