Los Angeles (April 20, 2015) – In a collaboration between the LA Phil and Glorya Kaufman Presents Dance at The Music Center, “Available Light – Creators in Conversation” reunites choreographer Lucinda Childs, composer John Adams, and architect Frank Gehry, in a post-performance discussion about the evolution of Available Light, the production that opened the Temporary Contemporary (Geffen/MOCA) 31 years ago. This conversation is open to ticket holders for the Available Light performance on Friday, June 5.
Available Light, a co-presentation of Glorya Kaufman Presents Dance at The Music Center and the LA Phil, will be presented on the stage of Walt Disney Concert Hall, and feature re-imagined choreography from Childs, performed to Adams’ original taped score, on a set newly designed by Gehry.
These performances are a part of “Next on Grand: Contemporary Americans,” a festival of music and dance embraces contemporary music by American composers, from its most established voices – Philip Glass, Steve Reich, and John Adams – to its most emergent ones – Caroline Shaw, Andrew Norman, Christopher Cerrone, and more. Complete programming details are available at LAPhil.com/NextOnGrand.
