Long Run on Tour & NYC Premiere

After premiering Long Run at the Fisher Center at Bard College in October 2017 and presenting an excerpt of the work as part of American Realness in January 2018, Tere O’Connor Dance is thrilled to announce Long Run’s upcoming tour engagements and premieres. Long Run will tour to the American Dance Festival this summer for two performances on Tuesday July 10th and Wednesday July 11th at the Reynolds Industries Theater in Durham, NC (tickets and more info here.) Then, in October, the work will return home for its NYC premiere, with performances at NYU Skirball on Friday, October 12th and Saturday, October 13th (tickets not yet available.) Tere O’Connor and the company are thrilled to get to share this work with a broader audience, and grateful to have the New England Foundation for the Performing Arts’ support via a National Dance Production tour grant in support of Long Run. Stay tuned as we announce additional tour engagements for Long Run in 2018/2019!

Live Arts Bard Presents Tere O’Connor's Long Run

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. Friday and Saturday October 13-14 at 7:30pm, Sunday October 15 at 2pm. Tickets and more information here.
