Deborah will also coach Karl Jay-Lewin on his adaptation of At Once, a solo piece he first learned in 2009.

Deborah Hay was a founding member of the experimental Judson Dance Theater and toured worldwide with the Merce Cunningham Dance Company. Throughout her career, she continuoually wrote and published while also developing her own understanding of a dance practice and choreography, which she applied in her work with both trained and untrained dancers. Commissioned works were made possible through The Forsythe Company and Cullberg, among others. Last year, MoMA opened their major exhibition Judson Dance Theater: The Work is Never Done, which features Hay’s work alongside that of her pioneering dance contemporaries, including Yvonne Rainer, Trisha Brown and Steve Paxton.

We hope that Deborah will return in 2020 for further research and development of her work.
