The legendary Judson Dance Theater will be the subject of a talk by Judy Hussie-Taylor on Saturday at 4 p.m. at the Watermill Center. Between 1962 and 1966, hundreds of choreographers, visual artists, poets, musicians, and filmmakers experimented with modes of performance at the Judson Memorial Church on Washington Square in Greenwich Village.
In 2012, Ms. Hussie-Taylor, executive and artistic director of Danspace Project at St. Mark’s Church-in-the-Bowery, invited many of the original performers as well as a new generation of artists to consider Judson’s impact on their work. She will talk about organizing “Platform 2012: Judson Now,” which included live presentations by Steve Paxton, Lucinda Childs, David Gordon, Yvonne Rainer, Simone Forti, Meredith Monk, and Carolee Schneemann, among many others.
The talk is free. Reservations, which are required, may be made at watermillcenter.org.
