Live Arts Bard Presents
World premiere/LAB commission A major new work from Tere O’Connor, one of the foremost choreographers of our day, whose abstractions engage the tension between the geometries of the rectangular stage, the organic forms of nature, and the vast terrain of human behavior. Long Run pushes the emotional content of O’Connor’s movement to new physical extremes, allowing time-based elements like polyrhythms, velocity, and duration to overtake the performers as they struggle to bring their bodies into a state of calm.
Long Run is co-commissioned by Live Arts Bard at the Richard B. Fisher Center for the Performing Arts at Bard College through a Choreographic Fellowship with lead support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and NYU Skirball. The presentation of Long Run is made possible by the New England Foundation for the Arts’ National Dance Project, with lead funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, The Cultural Development Fund, the New York State Council for the Arts, and The National Endowment for the Arts' Art Works Grant.
