In partnership with Danspace Project, Barnard College hosts a conversation with David Gordon and Valda Setterfield.
Gordon speaks about his current work and its relation to earlier works Mannequin, and The Matter; the use of scores for choreography; how he thinks he learned to improvise; and the influence of his daily life on his work. Valda Setterfield, his partner and frequent collaborator, lends her unique perspective on their long term working relationship.
Wendy Perron, editor of Dance Magazine, moderates the conversation between what is, in Allen Robertson’s estimation, “the dance world’s most intriguing couple.” This event is also part of the series Judson@50.
