A 96th Birthday Celebration for Elaine
When: 20th February 2021
RSVP by 14 February
As Elaine's birthday is coming up, we feel it's time to celebrate & see each other again in this new decade, and would like to invite everyone who would like to get together on Saturday, the 20th of February 2021 on Zoom, hosted via the Artistic Estate of Elaine Summers / Kinetic Awareness® Center, with special thanks to the Jerome Robbins Dance Division, the New York Public Library of the Performing Arts.
Anyone who would like to remember, share about, dance about, talk about, sing about, etc. in honor of and for Elaine, on what would have been her 96th birthday, is welcome to request a time-slot when you would like to livestream directly to the ongoing Zoom-meeting from your space, do a round-talk with everyone present, or send videos, images, spoken word, interviews, photos, text-documents, etc. that can be shared.
People will be welcome to come & go, leave a chat-message etc.
Where possible, archival footage of Elaine and her work will be shown in between. There will be breakout-rooms for people who want to take a moment to talk with each other and catch up socially.
This event is meant to be a first, more informal try-out towards a larger and official global and planetary re-creation of Elaine's visionary Skytime, with which we would like to begin her Centennial on February 20th, 2025 into an entire year of related events in collaboration with our various partner organisations. We're happy to learn by doing. Expect the unexpected ...
Looking forward to hear from you & see you soon,
wherever you are around the globe!
With dancing regards
Charles Rosenberg, Meg Chang, Nina D'Abbracci, Frances Becker,
Michelle Berne, Pearl Bowser, Jill Green, Thomas Körtvélyessy (thanks to Elie Nassar),
