Work-in-Progress Showing of Story

The Company performs a work-in-process showing of Story, a new work created during its week in residence at Bard. Story (2013) uses Franz Schubert’s String Quartet No. 14 in D Minor (Death and the Maiden) as the basis for an energetic new work that draws from the Company’s latest choreographic methods developed for Story/Time (2012). Story will have its New York premiere in March at The Joyce Theater. The showing will be followed by a discussion with Jones, Associate Artistic Director Janet Wong, and the Company. Live music performed by members of the Bard Conservatory Orchestra.
