WHO'S WHO IN THE COMPANY LUCINDA CHILDS (Choreographer) began her career at the Judson Dance Theater in New York in 1963. Since forming her dance company ten years later, she has created over fifty works, both solo and ensemble. In 1976, she was featured in the landmark avant-garde opera Einstein on the Beach by Philip Glass and Robert Wilson, for which she won an Obie Award. She co-directed Wilson’s I Was Sitting on My Patio This Guy Appeared I Thought I Was Hallucinating, revived in 2021 in Paris for the Festival D’Automne along Wilson’s “6 Solos” featuring violinist Jennifer Koh, in which she participated as chorographer and performer. She also appeared in Maladie de la Mort by Marguerite Duras opposite Michel Piccoli and collaborated on the choreography for Letter to a Man, based on Nijinsky’s diaries and performed by Mikhail Baryshnikov. In 1979, Childs choreographed one of her most enduring works, DANCE, with music by Philip Glass and film décor by Sol LeWitt, which toured internationally and has been added to the repertory of the Lyon Opera Ballet, for which she has choreographed Beethoven’s Grande Fugue. In 2015, she revived Available Light, created in 1983 with music by John Adams and a split-level set by Frank Gehry. It was presented at the Festival d’Automne in Paris and the Manchester International Festival. In 2016, an exhibit titled “Nothing Personal,” her choreographic scores were shown at the Thaddeus Ropac Gallery in collaboration with the Centre Nationale de la Danse, to which she has donated her archive. In November 2018, Childs’s company performed some of her early work as part of the exhibition Judson Dance Theater: The Work Is Never Done at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.


WHO'S WHO IN THE COMPANY Since 1981, Childs has choreographed over thirty works for major ballet companies, including the Paris Opera Ballet, Ballet du Rhin et Les Ballets de Monte Carlo, and Introdans. She has also directed and choreographed a number of contemporary and eighteenth-century operas, including Gluck’s Orfeo ed Euridice for the Los Angeles Opera, Mozart’s Zaide for La Monnaie in Brussels, Stravinsky’s Le Rossignol and Oedipe, Vivaldi’s Farnace, and John Adams’s Dr. Atomic for the Opera du Rhin. Her production of Handel’s Alessandro premiered in Athens in 2013. Her production of Jean Baptiste Lully’s Atys premiered at Oper Kiel in 2014 and her production of Jean-Marie Leclaire’s Scylla and Glaucus premiered there in 2017. Most recently, Childs directed and choreographed Philip Glass' Ahknaten for Nice Opera Cote D’Azur which will premiere in November 2021. Childs is the recipient of numerous awards. She holds the rank of Commandeur in France’s Ordre des Arts et des Lettres and in 2017 she received the Golden Lion award from the Venice Biennale and the Samuel H. Scripps American Dance Festival award for lifetime achievement. In 2018 she was inducted into the Hall of Fame of the National Museum of Dance in Saratoga Springs, New York.

C O L L A B O R AT O R S PHILIP GLASS (Composer) was born in Baltimore, Maryland, and is a graduate of the University of Chicago and the Juilliard School. In the early 1960s, Glass spent two years of intensive study in Paris with Nadia Boulanger and, while there, earned money by transcribing Ravi Shankar’s Indian music into Western notation. By 1974, Glass had a number of innovative projects creating a large collection of new music for The Philip Glass Ensemble and for the Mabou Mines Theater Company. This period culminated in Music in Twelve Parts and the landmark opera Einstein on the Beach, for which he collaborated with Robert Wilson. Since Einstein, Glass has expanded his repertoire to include music for opera, dance, theater, chamber ensemble, orchestra, and film. His scores have received Academy Award nominations (Kundun, The Hours, Notes on a Scandal) and a Golden Globe (The Truman Show). Glass’s memoir Words Without Music was published by Liveright Books in 2015. Glass received the Praemium Imperiale in 2012, the U.S. National Medal of the Arts from President Barack Obama in 2016, and


WHO'S WHO IN THE COMPANY 41st Kennedy Center Honors in 2018. Glass’s recent works include Symphony No. 12, a completion of three symphonies based on David Bowie’s Berlin Trilogy, Glass’s first Piano Sonata, and a circus opera Circus Days and Nights. Glass’ upcoming 85th birthday season will feature programming around the globe, including three world premieres of Symphonies No. 13, 14, and 15. SOL LEWITT (Filmmaker) was born in 1928. LeWitt was one of the first artists to formally define conceptual art as a phenomenon. He is best known for his deceptively simple geometric structures and architecturally scaled wall drawings, but his oeuvre also includes sculptures, photographs, prints, and films. LeWitt reduced art to a few basic shapes (spheres, triangles, quadrilaterals) colors, and types of lines, and organized these elements into guidelines. Much of his production for his drawings was in the form of a set of ideas or instructions that he gave to teams of assistants to carry out. His method permitted other people to participate in the creative process. During his lifetime, LeWitt was the subject of hundreds of solo exhibitions in museums and galleries around the world. BEVERLY EMMONS (Lighting Designer) has lighting design credits for Annie Get Your Gun, Jekyll & Hyde, The Heiress, Stephen Sondheim’s Passion, The Elephant Man, and Amadeus, for which she won a Tony Award. Her Off-Broadway work includes The Vagina Monologues and several works by Joseph Chaiken. She has also designed productions at the Kennedy Center, The Guthrie, Arena Stage, and the Children’s Theatre of Minneapolis. For Robert Wilson, she has lit eight productions, including Einstein on the Beach. Along with her work for Lucinda Childs, she has designed lighting for choreographers Alvin Ailey, Trisha Brown, Merce Cunningham, and Martha Graham. Her honors include seven Tony Nominations, the 1976 Lumen Award, 1984 and 1986 Bessie Awards, a 1980 Obie Award for Distinguished Lighting, and several Maharam/American Theater Wing Design Awards. A. CHRISTINA GIANNIN (Costume Designer) has designed costumes for Alvin Ailey American Dance Company, American Ballet Theatre, American Repertory Ballet, Joffrey Ballet, Lucinda Childs Dance Company, and Pennsylvania Ballet Company, among others. International audiences have seen her work performed by the Ballet du Nord (France), Ballet of Flanders (Belgium), Royal Danish Ballet, Hong Kong Ballet, Teatro Colón Ballet Company (Argentina),


WHO'S WHO IN THE COMPANY Ballet National de Caracas (Venezuela) and Ballet Terese Carrena (Venezuela). She has also designed costumes for On and Off-Broadway theater and opera companies as well as New York Shakespeare Festival, Hartford Stage Company, and Roundabout Theater.

ABOUT THE JOYCE THEATER FOUNDATION The Joyce Theater Foundation ("The Joyce," Executive Director, Linda Shelton), a nonprofit organization, has proudly served the dance community for over three decades. Under the direction of founders Cora Cahan and Eliot Feld, Ballet Tech Foundation acquired and The Joyce renovated the Elgin Theater in Chelsea. Opening as The Joyce Theater in 1982, it was named in honor of Joyce Mertz, beloved daughter of LuEsther T. Mertz. It was LuEsther’s clear, undaunted vision and abundant generosity that made it imaginable and ultimately possible to build the theater. Ownership was secured by The Joyce in 2015. The theater is one of the only theaters built by dancers for dance and has provided an intimate and elegant home for over 400 U.S.-based and international companies. The Joyce has also expanded its reach beyond its Chelsea home through off-site presentations at venues ranging in scope from Lincoln Center’s David H. Koch Theater, to Brooklyn’s Invisible Dog Art Center, and to outdoor programming in spaces such as Hudson River Park. To further support the creation of new work, The Joyce maintains longstanding commissioning and residency programs. Local students and teachers (K–12th grade) benefit from its school program, and family and adult audiences get closer to dance with access to artists. The Joyce’s annual season of about 48 weeks of dance now includes over 340 performances for audiences in excess of 150,000 patrons. Visit Joyce.org for more information.

ABOUT THE JOYCE THEATER FOUNDATION VISION STATEMENT

LAND ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

The Joyce Theater Foundation is committed to fostering and supporting a diverse and inclusive environment, both on and off stage. We embrace and celebrate diversity in all its forms, and value the rich experiences and perspectives that arise from differences in race, ethnicity, socio-economic status, religion, age, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, and cognitive and physical ability.

The Joyce Theater operates on the Lenape island of Manhahtaan (Mannahatta) and acknowledges that it was founded upon the stolen land and erasure of many Indigenous communities. This acknowledgement demonstrates our institution’s commitment to the process of dismantling the legacies of colonialism and cultural imperialism.

We strive to counteract the social injustices and racism that exist within our communities, our nation, and our world. Our aim as an organization is to embody the principles of diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice. To achieve this, we will:

We acknowledge the ongoing violence towards Indigenous people through systemic inequality. We pay our respect to the Indigenous peoples who lived and continue to live upon this land, and whose rich history, artistic practices, and spirituality are tied to this land. It is within our responsibility as a cultural institution and our commitment to diversity and inclusion to embody a commitment to Indigenous rights and cultural equity.

• Create and implement proactive diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice initiatives; • Establish and maintain a culture of safe sharing, intentional listening, learning, and growth; • Engage with and support disenfranchised communities by sharing information and resources and ensuring accessibility; • Develop metrics and conduct regular reviews of our programs and policies to hold ourselves accountable and shift as neededs.

We sincerely invite you as an audience member to take a moment to reflect on the history and legacy of displacement, migration, and settlement. It is our intention to work with local Native American arts councils to better inform our land acknowledgment practices and anticipate that it will evolve over time.

With these goals in place and our Vision Statement in mind, we are dedicated to the continued learning and growth needed to foster an inclusive environment for all. This is an ongoing process and by nature will be an evolving statement.
