Ishmael Houston-Jones: “Themes from Lost & Found”
Saturday, September 24, 7:30pm
Kaatsbaan International Dance Center
Kaatsbaan International Dance Center in Tivoli is pleased to welcome Bessie recipient, Ishmael Houston-Jones, choreographer and performer this Saturday at 7:30pm. He will be performing his latest work-in-progress: Variations on Themes from Lost & Found: Scenes from a Life and Other Works by John Bernd.
The title is taken from Bernd’s trio of dances entitled Lost and Found: scenes of a life first performed at Danspace Project in 1981. This platform originated with Ishmael Houston-Jones’ rediscovery of a pamphlet of collected writings remembering the choreographer John Bernd who died of AIDS in 1988. Bernd is one of the many artists who died too young and who have been all-but-forgotten today.
Tickets are normally $20 for adults and $10 for children and students, but Tivoli Free Library patrons can get tickets this week in exchange for a $5 donation to the library. Just drop in and pick yours up!
