Part of PLATFORM 2012: Judson Now
An original member of Judson Dance Theater, Lucinda Childs performed her solo Pastime, in which she sat on stage inside of a bag, at the fourth Concert of Dance at Judson Church.
Childs' conceptual and, later, minimal approach to choreography coupled with her classical training has lead her on a diverse and prolific career path. She has choreographed for Robert Wilson and Philip Glass's opera Einstein on the Beach (1976), which will return to the Brooklyn Academy of Music in September. Her collaboration with Glass and artist Sol LeWitt on DANCE (1979) was recently reprised and toured. Childs has also been commissioned by the Paris Opera Ballet, Martha Graham Company, and Mikhail Baryshnikov.
On this special evening, Childs screens footage of Pastime (1963) and Screen (1965) and leads a discussion of her Judson-era work.
