Works in Silence offers insight into a decisive development phase of Lucinda Childs, one of the most important choreographers of the 20th century. 

Ty Boomershine was able to win Childs for a collaboration as a long-time dancer of her company. Six dancers of the DANCE ON Ensemble present a collection of works that have not been shown since the 1970’s. 

This is a rare entrance into a crucial period of transformation by one of the world's most important choreographers and directors, whose impact on both the world of the visual arts and influence on a generation of choreographers cannot be overstated. These works express a fragility and a humanity that is a perfect example of the value of experience and ideally suited to a group of dancers that bring with them their own abundant histories and knowledge. Do not miss this piece of dance history premiering on the occasion of the 'Playground Festival'.
