My friend Clarinda Mac Low has assembled 40 performers, now in the process of creating dances for a September 2012 staging of The Pronouns, a series of chance-derived dance instructional poems by Clarinda’s father, poet/composer Jackson Mac Low. I am honored to be a part (via Skype!) of this fabulous homage to Jackson, a weekend of performance at Danspace Project in New York City as part of PLATFORM 2012: Judson Now celebrating the 50th anniversary of Judson Dance Theater. Excitement all around.
In Clarinda’s words:
“40 Dancers + 40 Poems = 40 Dancers do 40 Dances for the Dancers
A delirious, exuberant celebration of The Pronouns: A Collection of 40 Dances for the Dancers, in honor of my father Jackson Mac Low’s birthday, and in tribute to the New York City post-Judson dance community.”
You can share in the delight of this 90th birthday tribute to Jackson Mac Low and to Clarinda’s extended dance community!
