LAST CREATION :
PARTICULAR REEL, CALICO MINGLING, RECLINIG RONDO, KATEMA Four pieces by Lucinda Childs re-created by Ruth Childs. Premiered 2nd to 4th of September at La Bâtie Festival de Genève.
Here is a new program of revivals with her aunt Lucinda Childs. The success and joy experienced while developing the first program based on Lucinda Childs' Judson Solos (Pastime 1963, Carnation 1964 and Museum Piece 1965) encouraged Ruth and Lucinda to continue their collaboration.
For this second series, Ruth is reviving 4 pieces by Lucinda Childs from the seventies: Particular Reel (1973), Calico Mingling (1973), Reclining Rondo (1975) and Katema (1978). These pieces were originally presented in "non-theatrical" spaces such as museums, public spaces, gymnasiums etc.
Here she is interested in delving into the essence of Lucinda Childs' choreographic work, which suddenly becomes very visible from 1973 on. During this period three things appear as fundamental elements in Lucinda's way of making dance: the use of a score, a trajectory in space and an imposed rhythm without using music. Somehow Ruth is looking to fill in the gap between Carnation (1964) and Dance (1979.)
