Discussion |
Elaine Summers performed at the First Concert of Dance at Judson Church in 1962. For over 50 years she has been investigating the interrelationship of art and technology with Elaine Summers Dance & Film Co. She is a co-founder of the Experimental Intermedia Foundation, and innovator of Kinetic Awareness, a seminal system of bodywork practiced by many choreographers and performers. On this afternoon, Summers and curator Lana Wilson address the socio-political context of the pre-Judson era and how it fed into Judson Dance Theater, with special interest in parallels between that time and the present.

A has no friends. No parents. No family. No possessions. No home, even. Because every day, A wakes up in the body of a different person. Every morning, a different bed. A different room. A different house. A different life. A is able to access each person's memory, enough to be able to get through the day without parents, friends, and teachers realizing this is not their child, not their friend, not their student. Because it isn't. It's A.
