"A vision of how we would all move in dance paradise."
- The New York Times
Lucinda Childs, the internationally acclaimed postmodern choreographer, makes her White Bird debut with a remounting of her seminal work DANCE. This rarely performed signature masterwork from 1979 is a landmark collaboration between Childs, one of the pillars of the Judson Dance Theater collective, composer Philip Glass and artist Sol Lewitt. Childs’ superb 11-member company sweeps across the stage as Lewitt’s fascinating black and white film of selected passages from the original performance of the work is projected onto a front scrim. A richly evocative Philip Glass score completes the not-to-be-missed experience of seeing this legendary work.
An Intimate Theatre
This 880 seat theater was designed to emulate the Edwardian-style theaters of Europe. Home to a variety of productions, this theater is refined and elegant. It is also one of the most intimate theatrical experiences you'll ever encounter.
No seat in the theater is further than 65 feet from the stage.
