Choreographic Fellow | November 25 – December 15, 2007
Bridge of Sighs
Weare created music labs with diverse
composers and musicians (students, faculty, and visiting artists) to deepen her understanding of and potential for an enhanced
relationship between sound and her choreography. Weare’s research agenda included exploration
of distinct and varied modes of musical integration, as well as creation of new
movement ideas generated as a result of live exchange between musicians and
dancers. Kurt Perschke also began designing and assembling draft structures to be considered for the set design of Bridge of Sighs.
Bridge of Sighs premiered at Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival in 2008.
Collaborators in Residence: David Ryther [composer + musician], Kurt Perschke [scenic designer], Doug Gillespie, Leslie Kraus [dancers]
