Choreography by Pam Tanowitz Music by Jessie Montgomery and Big Dog Little Dog
A new commission from the Fisher Center’s Choreographer-in Residence Pam Tanowitz (SummerScape 2018’s Four Quartets) and the ASCAP Foundation’s Leonard Bernstein Award-winning composer Jessie Montgomery (whose work was featured in Bard Music Fesival’s Out of the Silence series in 2020). Performed with live music, this large-scale dance is set against the spectacular backdrop of the Hudson River and the sun setting behind the Catskill Mountains. Utilizing the full breadth of Montgomery Place’s historic parkland, I was waiting for the echo of a better day beckons us back to gather on this land and pays tribute to what came before.
A companion film from visual artist and filmmaker Jeremy Jacob will be released in the Fisher Center’s fall 2021 UPSTREAMING season.
