MASTER CLASS AT THE BARN IN CORINTH WITH RUTH CHILDS

SEPTEMBER 9TH, 6PM TO 9PM

Ruth Childs is pleased to give a short masterclass on the choreographic work of Lucinda Childs focusing on the period that comes after the Judson Dance Theater period. In the 1970s, three founding elements appear in Lucinda’s way of creating: the use of a score, a path in a space and a rhythm imposed without music. Ruth wants to share, discuss and work on the scores of Calico Mingling (1973) and Katema (1978.)

In 2015, Lucinda Childs transmitted three of her iconic Judson Dance Theater solos from the 1960s to her niece Ruth Childs. This first artistic encounter gave birth to the recreation of Pastime (1963), Carnation (1964), and Museum Piece (1965). Two years after her first successful collaboration, Ruth Childs continues to revive her aunt’s dances through a second series of performances created in the 1970s: Particular Reel (1973), Calico Mingling (1973), Reclining Rondo (1975) and Katema (1978)
