Dance/Performance: Suspended Gestures

Artist-in-Residence in Dance Erica Dankmeyer re-stages Martha Graham’s iconic “Celebration” (1934).

This performance by Williams students highlights dance as a medium for analyzing and remembering the past. Sam Gilliam’s Situation VI-Pisces 4 (1972) serves as the painterly environment for the performance, putting Graham and Gilliam, two innovators of line and gesture, in dialogue.

This event is part of a weekend of programs organized in collaboration with the Williams College Dance Department for the symposium Dance/Performance in Interdisciplinary PerspectiveFor more information about the symposium visit
