On May 13th, Baryshnikov Arts Center will present Necessary Weather, a landmark collaboration between Dana Reitz, Jennifer Tipton, and Sara Rudner that is making its first New York appearance since it premiered at The Kitchen in 1994.
Based on a concept by choreographer and dancer Dana Reitz, and created in collaboration with lighting designer Jennifer Tipton between 1992 and 1994, Necessary Weather is an inquiry into the climates of movement and light. Performed by Reitz and dancing collaborator Sara Rudner, in silence with a subtle score that finely weaves light and movement, Necessary Weather is a journey along the edges of dream and real time. When the work premiered in 1994, Anna Kisselgoff of The New York Times wrote, “Every dance performance uses theatrical lighting, but none has explored the interaction of light and movement with such striking originality as Necessary Weather.”
Performances are May 13th through 15th at 8 PM and will take place in the new Jerome Robbins Theater at the Baryshnikov Arts Center, 450 West 37th Street between 9th and 10th Avenues. Tickets are available online or by calling Smart Tix at 212.868.4444.
