A festive evening celebrating MIFA Victory Theatre and Wistariahurst's upcoming spring events.
Featuring Wayfarer by Wendy Woodson and Into the Shade/Work and Culture by Deborah Baronas.
Choreographed by Idan Cohen
Dancer Noa Shiloh
Shot on location at Wistariahurst, Wayfarer is a film by Wendy Woodson, Artist Director and Professor of Theater and Dance at Amherst College, with Israeli choreographer Idan Cohen and dancer Noa Shiloh. The dance performance features 'Songs of a Wayfarer' by Gustav Mahler. Woodson will be present for a Q & A following the short film and Don Sanders, MIFA Executive Artistic Director, will talk about modern dance, setting the stage for MIFA’s two upcoming major spring dance offerings. Into the Shade/Work and Culture is an installation by Deborah Baronas whose hand-stenciled transparent scrims, paintings, artifacts, and video allow us to enter the energy and spirit, the patterns, shadows, rhythms, and movements of 19th-century workers in fields, factories, and domestic surroundings.
