My work is served by the notion that there is no single coherent person who dances."Deborah Hay
Hay’s solo, No Time to Fly, was the basis for a trio, As Holy Sites Go, commissioned for Motion Bank (Frankfurt), a virtual library of aesthetics created by the Forsythe Company. Jeanine Durning and Ros Warby will perform their adaptations of No Time to Fly, within the context of Hay’s choreography of As Holy Sites Go/duet.
One of Europe’s most dynamic ballet companies returns to UCLA for the first time in 14 years continuing on the foundation laid by Deborah Hay’s score No Time to Fly. Their work Figure a Sea brings together Cullberg Ballet’s dancers in a masterful meeting between Deborah Hay and maverick composer Laurie Anderson.
Setting a digital transcription of the No Time to Fly /duet on a full ballet company, Hay expands As Holy Sites Go into this 21-person adaptation. "Figure a Sea is a meditation on seeing. Seeing music, fleeting incidences, synchronicities, copious input points, collectivity, surprise. It is a space for self-reflection: for seeing oneself seeing,” says Deborah Hay of the work.
