A collaboration between choreographer Jonah Bokaer and visual artist Anthony McCall, ECLIPSE is a multidisciplinary performance that integrates choreography, light, visual design, and an audio-visual time score to arrive at altered ways of viewing a performance. First imagined while the artists were in residence in Hudson in 2012 and working at Basilica, ECLIPSE creates illusions of expanded space through the use of movement, visual design, lighting, and media.
The piece features four dancers and Bokaer, dancing at the center of a site-specific, freestanding seating configuration. Viewers will be invited to circumnavigate the piece, experiencing the dancers and McCall’s spare, sculptural set from all sides.
Eclipse made its debut at the 2012 BAM Next Wave Festival.
Performances at Basilica Hudson will be April 25th and 26th, with the company in residence for the week preceding that: further ECLIPSE-related events will be announced in the weeks to come. Tickets will be available from Brown Paper Tickets and a limited number are also available at John Doe Records in Hudson.
The presentation of name of ECLIPSE was made possible by the New England Foundation for the Arts’ National Dance Project, with lead funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, with additional support from the National Endowment for the Arts.
