Site-Specific Choreography

As part of our continued commitment to collaboration, community building, and the exploration of interdisciplinary intersections, we are once again connecting the site-specific choreographers with the sculptors of the pieces that they are working with. Our intention is to create a space for dialogue between the visual and dance artists so as to facilitate the creation of dynamic work that is able to utilize a fuller understanding of the sculptures to inform the dance pieces.

 

The following is the list of sculptures available for site-specific pieces this year. This is a different group of pieces than last year. Please make sure to only choose from the following sculptures. Please note: You can have gentle physical contact with all of the sculptures. If you have questions about how much you can engage, please ask. Admission fees to the park are waived for rehearsals of site-specific work.We have listed artist names first, followed by their sculpture titles, in italics. Multiple works by the same artist are separated by commas: 

 

Emilie Brzezinski – Lintel; Robert Cook and David Good - Seat of Sound; William Donnan – Pinched; Mike Gyampo - Matters of the Moment; Seward Johnson – Chamber of Internal Dialogue; Kevin Lyles – Passage; Joel Perlman – High Spirit; Peter Lundberg – Where is Geometry; John Martini – The Couple; Zoran Mojsilov – Cuckoo’s Nest; John Newman – Skyhook; Martha Pettigrew – Gossip; John Ruppert – Pumpkins; Edwinia Sandies – Guardian Angel; Ernest Shaw – Sumo; James Surls – Standing Vase With Five Flowers; Gunnar Theel – Nature’s Laugh; Herk Van Tongeren – Teatro XI; Bernar Venet – Arcs in Disorder; Peter Woytuk – Bull #4 & Bull #5;  Glenn Zweygart – Allentown Council.
