Lee Serle | Nov 18 at 8pm
Australian choreographer Lee Serle presents a hands-on theater and sculpture work-in-progress that explores consumerism and individualism at MASS MoCA in North Adams, MA. In collaboration with Colombian visual artist Mateo López and Lebanese theater director Maya Zbib, this exploration exemplifies Serle’s dedication to creating work in varied context and forms. As Protégé in Dance for the prestigious Rolex Mentor and Protégé Arts Initiative, Serle’s work is greatly influenced by his mentorship with Trisha Brown, one of the seminal and most inventive American choreographers of the 21st century.
“We're excited to support Lee Serle in what promises to be a powerful meeting of artistic minds,” says Jacob’s Pillow Director Pamela Tatge.
With special thanks to the Rolex Institute. This program is supported in part by the Irene Hunter Fund for Dance.
