This work is both radically subversive and deeply patriotic…” – Adam Weinert

After a successful reconstruction at the Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival, and recent performances at ICA Miami and Soundscape Park at the New World Center, Hudson Hall is thrilled to host an open rehearsal of Dance of the Ages (1938): A Creative Reconstruction by Adam Weinert.

Under the direction of Weinert, dancers will recreate the 1938 ensemble work by choreographer Ted Shawn and His Men Dancers, the first all-male dance company. Weinert’s recreation focuses on Shawn’s experimental technique and his under-recognized contributions to LGBTQIA+ history.

Dance of the Ages was the first evening length modern dance to ever be presented, and one of the last creations Shawn built for The Men Dancers. This iconic choreography based on the radical queer text Towards Democracy (1833) was Shawn’s response to the rise of fascism around the world. For Shawn, Dance of the Ages was dream work, a radical democratic space that understood queer masculinity and artistry, not as a threat, but as integral to the functioning of society.

This creative reconstruction is made possible by generous support from the ICA Miami’s Culture Club, The Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival, and the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.

Please note: Proof of vaccination and masks are required.
