This informal studio showing features a glimpse at Tere O’Connor’s recently premiered Long Run. The work pushes the emotional content of O’Connor’s movement to 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, the Marta Heflin Foundation, and The National Endowment for the Arts’ Art Works Grant.
