Part of PLATFORM 2012: Judson Now
Distinguished choreographer Deborah Hay is a founding member of Judson dance Theater and participated in the first Concert of dance at Judson Church. Hay is a recent recipient of the Foundation for Contemporary Arts grant, and an inaugural 2012 Doris Duke artist. In addition to her choreography, she has published numerous influential books and articles on her creative process.
Based on her No Time to Fly (2010), which marked Hay's return to solo performance, As Holy Sites Go/duet originally began as a trio and has been adapted as a duet for choreographers Jeanine Durning and Ros Warby. The dancers' choice to perform much of the choreographic material that determines As Holy Sites Go/duet, requires, in Hay's own words "catastrophic acts of perception" as they dis-attach from a multitude of former behavior.
