NICK HALLETT (Composer, Music Director) has been a collaborator of the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company since 2014. His scores include all three evenings of the Analogy Trilogy, A Letter to my Nephew, and Fishkill/Movements 1-45. He is the recipient of a 2017 “Bessie” award for Best Revival, with Ishmael Houston-Jones and Miguel Gutierrez, for Variations on Themes from Lost & Found: Scenes from a Life and Other Works by John Bernd. His first opera, Whispering Pines 10 (2010), a collaboration with artist Shana Moulton, was presented internationally and earned the duo a Creative Capital grant to be adapted for the internet. Since 2004, Hallett has been the co-director of New York’s Darmstadt series, celebrated for staging radical interpretations of music and performance from the avant-garde canon. His work as music director and producer to multimedia artist Joshua White resulted in a decade-long re-emergence of the iconic Joshua Light Show. He is on the faculty of Eugene Lang College at the New School and the School for Visual Arts.
