Why is Lucinda Childs’s 1979 masterpiece called Dance? Why was the film completely re-created? And why were eggs thrown at the original performers? Learn from the choreographer herself, as she speaks about the creative process and the piece’s evolution. Childs speaks on her working relationship creating a “dialogue” with Philip Glass’s music, which she calls “tension,” and how the abstract nature of her work as well as Sol LeWitt’s visual art led to the idea that “the décor should be the dancers.”

Presented as part of the Dance Reflections by Van Cleef & Arpels Festival.
