June 5 - 8, 2019
Brooklyn Academy of Music | BAM Fisher (Fishman Space)
in the shelter of the fold / epilogue
with Lesley Flanigan and Bang on a Can All-Stars
In an intricately woven tapestry of sound, shape, momentum, and stillness, the company of 13 dancers contemplate our private and public relationship to faith. Comprised of six interconnected vignettes, featuring original music by Lesley Flanigan, Julia Wolfe, David Lang, Raz Mesinai, and Kevin Keller, masterfully performed by Lesley Flanigan and the Bang on a Can All-Stars. Drawing upon Varone's own personal questions of prayer as both a spiritual and secular dialogue, the episodic work digs deep to ask how and why we find shelter in the unknown.
Following the Thursday, June 6 performance, you are invited to join us for a benefit celebration. Please visit our benefit page for more details.
