Openings: Synchronicity at Bard SummerScape

Rural Intelligence Parties and Openings Bard opened its seventh annual SummerScape Festival on Saturday, July 11, with a gala dinner in the Spiegeltent (left) and a performance of Lucinda Child’s 1979 Dance, a landmark collaboration with composer Philip Glass and artist Sol LeWitt, who made the black-and-white movie that is projected onto a scrim so that live dancers and filmed dancers overlap. It’s emblematic of the the works produced at the Frank Gehery-designed Richard B. Fisher Center for the Performing Arts whose mission is to “inspire risk-taking performances and provocative programs.”  The same ethos applies to the summer-only Spiegeltent across the lawn, which hosts cabaret, dance parties and avant-garde performances now through August 20.
