Sarah Lawrence student dancers will present Radial Courses, a 1976 masterpiece by Lucinda Childs, post-modern choreographer and Sarah Lawrence College graduate, December 16 and 17 at 7:30 p.m. in the Bessie Schonberg Dance Theatre. The piece is a product of Childs’ exploration of issues of time and space through movement and sound and the students had an opportunity to study the dance with Ms. Childs, who has been the Viola Farber Artist-in-Residence this fall. For reservations please call (914) 395-2433.
“The detail in this dance is extraordinary. It’s very pure. It’s very complex. It’s systematic and it’s quite compelling.” says Sara Rudner, director of the Sarah Lawrence Dance Program.
The performance is sponsored in part by a National Endowment for the Arts American Masterpieces: Dance College Component Grant. Keith Sabado, a well-known modern dancer who was a member of the Linda Childs Dance Company, is the rehearsal director and dance master for the project.
The student dancers are Ilona Bito, Nicholas Feder, Teresa Fellion, Sarah Fiske, Patrick Gallagher, Kay Ottinger, Aya Sato, and Mercedes Searer.
