Available Light, a “work of blazing formal beauty” (New York Times) created through a historic collaboration between three iconic artists, returns “brighter than ever” (Los Angeles Times). Not seen in New York since 1983, the work offers prismatic views of the intersection between dance, music, and architecture. Renowned postmodern choreographer Lucinda Childs arranges and rearranges her dancers in the three-dimensional space of Frank Gehry’s stark, split-level set, creating kaleidoscopic textures that echo the restless phase shifts, ambient washes, and fractured fanfares of John Adams’s work for synthesizer and recorded brass, Light Over Water.
