Charlie Vernon will show a video of his seminal 1981 work, "That Fall", featuring text by Vernon, music by Fred Simon and performed by five male dancers. The piece debuted as part of "The Seasons" at Columbia College and was seen subsequently at New York City's Dance Theater Workshop and the Riverside Church 1982 Men's Dancing Festival. The showing of the video will be preceded by a short presentation by Vernon where he will talk about the process of creating the piece.
Bob Eisen will present a new duet, created and performed with Minneapolis dancer Dolo McComb. It will be a continuation of the exploration of movement and structure that Eisen has been investigating for the last 30 plus years.
Following these Past, Past and Present performances there will be a party/gathering/celebration with drinks available at the bar, food, and a continuous showing of excerpts from Charlie Vernon's older pieces.
Co-produced by Bob Eisen and Roell Schmidt
