Dig Dance: Iconoclast Lineage
May 18, 2018 - May 20, 2018

David Parker traces his roots, exploring the choreography of James Waring and Aileen Pasloff.

James Waring, a revered figure in New York's experimental dance world in the 1950s and 60s worked with and inspired many members of the Judson Dance Theater and beyond. Parker was introduced to his work while a student of Aileen Passloff’s at Bard College in the 1970s. Passloff, a muse and colleague of Waring's, restages Waring's 
Octondra and her own Nocturne for these performances. Also, renowned dancer and fellow Waring company member, Richard Colton sets Waring's Tender Buttons with Gertrude Stein's text read by David Parker.  Parker’s kinship with Waring, an artist whose refusal to conform to preconceptions about high and low art, ballet and modern, popular and serious dance, inspired his own works, Violin Phase and excerpts from A Mouthful of Shoes performed on this program.
