in the shelter of the fold / epilogue
NYC Premiere of "in the shelter of the fold / epilogue," with live music by Bang on a Can All-stars, Lesley Flanigan, and PUBLIQuartet.
Created for 13 dancers and three live music ensembles, the seven dances that make up in the shelter of the fold /epilogue comprise an inquiry into public and personal acts of faith—traditional and secular uses of prayer. in the shelter of the fold /epilogue explores the multitude of expectations inherent to belief and questions our spiritual means of coping, attaining states of realization, and making conflicted choices. To whom are we speaking and what are we asking for? Is this a mystical or spiritual experience, or is it simply a dialogue we’re having with ourselves? Why do we seek assurance from the unknown?
Bang on a Can All-Stars will perform works by Wolfe, Lang, Gordon, and Keller. PUBLIQuartet will perform Mesinai’s La Citadelle. Lesley Flanigan will perform Sleepy and Hedera. The ensembles will play from different locations in the performing venue: Bang on a Can, from a raised platform behind the dancers; PUBLIQuartet, from the theater’s balcony; and Lesley Flanagan will be located among the dancers.
