Repost @nytimes: #SpeakingInDance | “I was very interested in finding the most bombastic piece of music that was around,” said the choreographer #YvonneRainer, whose 1963 dance “We Shall Run” is set to Berlioz’s Requiem (1837). “There's cannons going off, you know?” The dancers start the piece by standing still for 5 minutes. “And then all they do is run,” Yvonne said. “I thought that was just a fantastic, radical juxtaposition. I still find it very beautiful.” As part of the exhibition “Judson Dance Theater: The Work Is Never Done,” opening at the @themuseumofmodernart on September 16, “We Shall Run” will be performed in the museum's atrium until September 22. Judson, an experimental collective made up of dancers, choreographers, visual artists, composers and filmmakers, changed the course of dance by, among other things, stripping away virtuosity and expressiveness and embracing ordinary movement — like running. The exhibition will feature performances by other founding #JudsonDance members in the coming months, but Yvonne kicks it off with 7 classics. “These are the 7 survivors from the '60s,” she told the @nytimes writer @giadk. “And here they are together for the first time.” @gwbitz made this video for #SpeakingInDance, our weekly series exploring the world of #dance.
