What the Body Remembers. Dance Heritage Today Lucinda Childs/Ruth Childs: Calico Mingling, Katema, Reclining Rondo, Particular Reel
In 2015 Lucinda Childs entrusted her niece Ruth Childs with three of her legendary solos from the 1960s. Two years after her first successful collaborations, Ruth Childs is picking up a second series of performances from the 1970s: Particular Reel (1973), Calico Mingling (1973), Reclining Rondo (1975) and Katema (1978). This new programme concentrates on the aesthetic transitions of the choreographer before the creation of her famous work Dance (1979).
Lucinda Childs commented about this period: “I had the feeling that I had to move away from the world of objects and materials. I wanted to get back to movement, to simple ideas about movement without having to be so dependent on the manipulation of objects and materials.”
