At 62 Center Williamstown Oct. 15
By: Ariel Petrova - Sep 26, 2010
The ’62 Center for Theatre and Dance presents principal dancers from the New York City Ballet in a special performance of George Balanchine’s Davidsbündlertänze. As in the original production, the work is performed with a solo pianist. The evening includes a discussion of Schumann’s music by Marjorie Hirsch, Professor of Music, and an excerpt from a documentary on Karin von Aroldingen, an original cast member and interpreter of Balanchine choreography. The performance is on October 15th, 7:30 PM on the ’62 Center MainStage, located at 1000 Main Street, in Williamstown, MA. Tickets are $3 with valid student ID & $10 for all others.
Thanks to the support from the Lipp Family Fund and the Williams College Department of Dance the dancers from the New York City Ballet are in Williamstown for one day to teach a master class (for information, email Janine.Parker@williams.edu) and for the performance.
Continuing its mission to contextualize arts within scholarly inquiry, the Center presents an impressive body of work that sets student work side-by-side with that of professional artists. We strive to challenge traditional forms, engage with a larger political dialogue and allow our audiences to explore diverse modes of expression. Not content merely to present popular work, the Center’s professional performances, workshops and student productions are designed to invite the entire community to engage, debate, and celebrate the experience of both witnessing and creating live art.
