Dancemaker David Gordon first came to fame as a member of modern dance’s groundbreaking Judson Church performances and gained an even wider public profile when Mikhail Baryshnikov collaborated with him and dancer Valda Setterfield. In 1982, Gordon created Trying Times (Remembered), which he described as his “anti-signature” piece, inspired by overheard subway conversations and audaciously using Stravinsky’s Apollo. For this re-creation, Gordon has reassembled several of the original cast, including Satterfield, augmented by five dancers from CalArts. Los Angeles gets the first look before performances in New York, a type of completed circle to Gordon’s postmodern roots at NYC’s Judson Church. REDCAT, 631 W. Second St., dwntwn.
