There’s Always More “Dance,” At Least Through The Festival

Posted August 20th, 2010

Did you miss the Lucinda Childs documentary we screened last night at International House, as we’re getting psyched up for Dance? Check out Steve Weisz‘s review. Here’s part of what he had to say:

“In watching Patrick Bensard’s documentary, capturing moments of Lucinda Childs in rehearsal with Mikhail Baryshnikov, and the Ballet de L’Opéra du Rhin in New York, London, and Paris; not to mention the gamut of interviews with Mikhail Baryshnikov, Philip Glass, Anna Kisselgoff, Yvonne Rainer, Susan Sontag, and Robert Wilson, one is left simply wanting to know and see even more.”

And you can, lucky you!. Next Tuesday, August 24 at 7:00 pm, at the Live Arts Studio, we’re screening Einstein on the Beach: The Changing Image of Opera, a documentary about the famous Philip Glass/Robert Wilson/Lucinda Childs collaboration. And, of course, don’t forget to come see Dance.

Dance runs September 10 and 11 at 8:00 pm, and September 12 at 3:00 pm. Perelman Theater, Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts, 260 South Broad Street, Philadelphia. $25 to $30. For tickets, click here.
