Performing Arts - Dance | February 4 | 8 p.m. | Zellerbach Hall
Join us in celebrating the 70th birthday of Berkeley's own internationally renowned composer and Cal Performances collaborator John Adams. Lucinda Childs' Available Light, hailed in its 1983 premiere as "a career breakthrough...a work of blazing formal beauty" (The New York Times), is set to Adams' richly impressionistic score, with a striking set designed by Frank Gehry. Childs, whose choreography last graced Bay Area stages in Einstein on the Beach, returns with her company for this Cal Performances co-commissioned revivala rare opportunity to experience the collaborative work of these three visionary artists.
The 2015 revival of Available Light was produced by Pomegranate Arts and commissioned by Cal Performances, UC Berkeley; Festspielhaus St. Pölten; FringeArts, Philadelphia with the support of The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage; Glorya Kaufman Presents Dance at the Music Center and The Los Angeles Philharmonic Association; International Summer Festival Kampnagel, Hamburg; Onassis Cultural CentreAthens; Tanz Im August, Berlin; and Théâtre de la VilleParis and Festival d'Automne à Paris. Available Light was developed at MASS MoCa (Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art).
