Following the success of A Dance in the Garden last year, a new edition of this unique dance/music installation returns to the beautiful Oeno Gallery Sculpture Garden at Huff Estates on Sun. August 19, 2018, at 5:30 pm.
Animating the artwork on display and the garden, the event enlivens the balance of freedom and formality at play in the Garden’s special symbiosis of art and nature. The choreographic score is interpreted and performed by six professional dance artists, with live musical accompaniment by multi-instrumentalist Kirk Elliott.Light is a creative theme – the arc of daylight, sun and shadow,inviting viewers to experience the Sculpture Garden in the long light of an August day.
Sun on Stone: Dance in the Garden is conceived and directed by dance artist/author Carol Anderson, a County summer resident since 1995. Anderson has created dance for the concert stage, theatre, screen, and non-traditional spaces including the Music Garden at Toronto’s Harbourfront. She is joined, for A Dance in the Garden, by accomplished dance artists including Claudia Moore, Terrill Maguire, Michelle Silagy, Arwyn Carpenter and Cristina González, with live music performed by renowned composer and multi-instrumentalist Kirk Elliott.
Entry to the Oeno Sculpture Garden and Sun on Stone: Dance in the Garden is free. Join us on Sun. August 19, 5:30 pm.
