Part of PLATFORM 2012: Judson Now

This evening is part of the series The Art of Influence.

The Art of Influence is three distinct evenings curated by established choreographers who have, in recent years, performed in the work of Judson choreographers: Juliette Mapp in the work of Deborah Hay, Melinda Ring in the work of Rudy Perez, and Patricia Hoffbauer in the work of Yvonne Rainer. Each has been invited to curate an evening reflecting and responding to the idea of Judson and its influences.

This evening’s title alludes to a recent Artforum interview with
Robert Morris who (speaking on his 1963 event War, a collaboration
with Robert Huot) said, “I believe the other events were all billed
as dances. So by default our performance of War was categorized as a
dance.” The evening will include performances by visual artists
including Liliana Dirks-Goodman, Martin Kersels, and Michael
Mahalchick, who, like those of the early Judson Dance Theater,
collaborate with choreographers and work with dance in other ways.
