One of the original Judson Dance Theater innovators whose work from the 1960s forward has investigated movement, film, light, sound and new technologies, Intermedia artist Elaine Summers will present a retrospective evening of film and dance installations, including the 1969 Guggenheim Museum commission Crow's Nest, a collaboration with acclaimed composer Pauline Oliveros.

In addition to Crow's Nest, the program includes the film/dances Absence & Presence, Two Girls Downtown Iowa, Windows in the Kitchen, with live music by Jon Gibson (dedicated to dancer Matt Turney), and the premiere of Skydance/Skytime/Skyweb with an original score composed and performed live by world-recognized composer Carman Moore.

Her body of work also includes the development of Kinetic Awareness, an important body practice used by many leading dancers worldwide. Her latest project, SkytimeTM, is a web-based invitation to all the world to celebrate the sky together in any relatable medium.
