Iconoclast Lineage: James Waring, Aileen Passloff, David Parker

David Parker, the tap-inspired choreographer, traces his roots, exploring the choreography of James Waring and Aileen Passloff.

James Waring, a revered figure in New York's experimental dance world in the 1950s and 60s worked with and inspired many members of the Judson Dance Theater and beyond. Parker was introduced to his work while a student of Aileen Passloff’s at Bard College in the 1970s. Passloff, a muse and colleague of Waring's, restages Waring's Octandra and her own Nocturne for these performances. Parker’s kinship with Waring, an artist whose refusal to conform to preconceptions about high and low art, ballet and modern, popular and serious dance, inspired his own works, Violin Phase and excerpts from A Mouthful of Shoes performed on this program.
