Time forever dividing itself toward innumerable futures
French horn score to site-specific choreography, exploring tensions in classical ballet/modern dance, natural/unnatural, and past/present.
On June 18 and 19, 2019, as part of the River To River Festival, an original score by composer Ted Hearne will premiere in a new work by Pam Tanowitz, entitled Time forever dividing itself toward innumerable futures. The first site-specific work the choreographer has presented, Tanowitz’s piece is a collaboration with New York City Ballet principal Sara Mearns. Joined by an ensemble comprised of regulars and New York City Ballet guests, the group will become part of the tranquil landscape of Rockefeller Park in Battery Park City. Tanowitz will explore the tensions between the legacies of classical ballet versus modern dance, the natural world versus the unnatural, and the past versus the present. In a nod to her mentor, David Gordon’s Muybridge Solo will be embedded within the choreography.
