UPDATE: I happened to be at City Center last night and took a peek in at Studio 4 during Ian's performance. It's the first time I've seen lighting used in the Studio there and it was really intriguing. Gives the space an other-worldly quality. Now I can't wait for tonight's performance - the second and last.
The Studio Experience: I met Ian Spencer Bell earlier this year at a studio showing by the Martha Graham Dance Company. He recently contacted me regarding his upcoming performances at City Center Studio and - later this summer - at Jacob's Pillow. Information here. In the top photo, Mara Driscoll and Nathaniel Darst.
At the DANY studios on May 5, 2012, Kokyat and I had a look at the work Ian has created, set to Olivier Messaien's mind-bending Quartet for the End of Time.
