Music by Phillip Glass
Film by Sol Le Witt
A seminal collaboration emerging out of one of the most vibrant and prolific periods in New York's art world, DANCE is a rarely-performed work that is still considered revolutionary 30 years after its historic premiere. Set to an original score by Philip Glass, DANCE is framed by a black and white film by minimalist artist Sol LeWitt, a projection with which live dancers seamlessly interact. The result is a universe of austere beauty as the dancers onstage and the cast on film unite with mesmerizing precision. The New York Times calls DANCE "... a vision of how we would all move in dance paradise;" while The Village Voice declares "... its performers are glistening, heroic elements of a mixed-media artwork."
