Deborah Hay evolved from a highly trained modern dancer with Merce Cunningham into a pivotal player among the innovative postmodern choreographers centered at New York's Judson Church in the 1960s. Balking at existing strictures of modern dance, Hay devoted decades to creating works, often large-scale works, for untrained dancers as well as her own company and solo works for herself. In recent years she has circled back, creating for professional companies. This two-day tribute, A Platform in Three Parts, offers a taste of her path. Both afternoons are devoted to Hay's solo No Time to Fly, which became a trio, here reimagined and adapted as a duet performed by Jeanine Durning and Ros Warby. Both evenings are devoted to Cullberg Ballet performing Figure a Sea, Hay's collaboration with composer Laurie Anderson, which expanded No Time to Fly for a larger group of professional dancers.
